DEATH OF A WELL KNOWN RESIDENT
Mr. Conrad Kohl died at his residence at O’Leary on Friday after a brief illness. Mr. Kohl was, until last Monday up an around and apparently in the best of health. He contracted a chill on Tuesday and took to his bed and lung fever supervened and he rapidly grew worse. On Thursday the doctors in attendance held little hopes for his recovery and he gradually became worse, passing away on Friday, surrounded by the members of his family.
Mr. Kohl was a native of Germany and came to the United States when a young man. He came to this county from Illinois about fifteen or sixteen years ago and has since made his home at the farm where he died. He affiliated himself with the Presbyterian Church some years ago and was a faithful attendant. He was about sixty years of age. He leaves a widow and five children, one son and four daughters, all of whom reside at home excepting one daughter, who is married to Mr. R. S. Eyres, of Union township. Mr. Kohl served in the Civil War on the Union side.
The funeral was held from the house on Sunday afternoon at 2 o’clock, Rev. A. Z. Macgogney, of LeMars, officiating and the interment made at the City cemetery in LeMars.
