The deceased was born in Germany, where he grew to manhood, coming to the United States in 1854. In 1856 he came west and settled in Muscatine, where he had since resided, enjoying the respect and esteem of all who knew him.

He had been in delicate health for the past fifteen years and his constitution was no fit foe for the insidious disease which attacked him. In his death the family lose an affectionate husband and father and his many acquaintances a valued friend.
Besides his wife, two sons, Henry, of Dubuque, and John, of Idaho, are left to mourn his loss. Henry arrived Wednesday to attend his bedside.
