... On the morning of the 27th ult. occurred the death of John LANGNER, one of our oldest and best known citizens. He was born in Germany Sept. 5th, 1819, came to America in 1852, and lived in Chicago and other Illinois towns for two years, after which he removed to Jefferson County, Iowa, and has lived in this community for forty years. Soon after his arrival here he was married to Eleanor STITZER, who survives him. Five children were born to them, only two of whom are now living: a son, William, lives on a farm just south of Fairfield, and a daughter, Mrs. William ACHENBACH, resides with her husband on the old homestead here; two of the other children died in infancy, while a daughter, Ella (sic - Eleanora), who had grown to womanhood among us, preceded her father about eighteen months. Mr. LANGNER's remains were intered in the Hopkirk cemetery near Lockridge. Funeral service were conducted by Rev. Kneiream of Germanville.
