Washington Democrat, 2 May 1894
John Rheinart, whose death occurred in Los Angles some days ago, had a rather romantic and varied career. He was born in Alsace, when it was part of France. After the Franco-Prussian war it was taken by Prussia and its inhabitants became citizens of the empire. Mr. Rheinart was educated in the schools of Paris, having been sent there for the first fifteen years of his life. He was there during the famous barricade of ’48, where Hugo’s Gavroche and Marius had such thrilling experiences. He came to this country a good many years ago and settled in Dutch Creek township, where his father died. Later, he came to Washington and entered the law practice with A. H. Patterson. They were partners for a number of years. Mr. Rheinart retired and moved to Milwaukee. He was a thoroughly cultivated, refined and educated gentleman. His pastime was playing whist, at which he was adept, having made a record known throughout the United States. He was about seventy five years of age.
