John Moser, the Old Veteran, Gone
His aged wife, his only surviving child, a number of grand children at his bedside, beloved by all
who knew him, that was the consolation of old John Moser, when, he paid the debt of nature at noon, Tuesday, November 3.
Papa Moser's life was one of usefulness. He was born in the county Bern in Switzerland 72 years and 10 months ago[2-10-1825]. When a young man he served with credit in the "Sonderbund's" war of his native land, and his papers which he has preserved dearly, were his pride in later
years. He came to the United States in 1855, has lived in Bremer and Fayette counties in this state and in 1881 he came to Plymouth county. He served in the civil war in Co. A. 14 Iowa volunteers and came home wounded and crippled. Only two years ago he succeeded in obtaining a pension of twelve: dollars per month.
Deceased is survived by his aged wife and his son Fred, a daughter having died in her earliest youth.
The funeral was Thursday afternoon November 5 and
was largely attended. Rev. Kreth conducted the ceremonies, and delivered a very impressive- sermon. Papa Moser will long be remembered by his many friends.
May he rest in peace.
