DEATH OF CONRAD STEINMENTZ.
With the announcement of the death of Conrad Steinmetz, which occurred this morning at 11:05 o’clock, at his home, No. 211 West Sixth street, Muscatine loses another long time and highly respected resident, whose taking away will be mourned by old settlers and a wide circle of relatives and friends. Mr. Steinmetz had been in ill health for the past several years, but was always able to be around, until last Thursday morning, when he was taken with a severe attack of bowel ailment, which left him so weak and debilitated that death resulted from sheer exhaustion of the vital forces.
Mr. Steinmetz was born in Nieder Melwig, Germany, February 6, 1820. When he attained the age of almost thirty years he emigrated to this country, coming directly to Muscatine in 1854. In the same year he was united in marriage with Miss Catherine Hahn, who together with four children, two daughters, Mrs. Adam Beck and Miss Louise, and two sons, Paul and Arthur, are left sorrowing.
Mr. Steinmetz had been constantly in the employ of the S.G. Stein Furniture co., since he came to this city, some forty-two years ago. He was a faithful and consistent member of the German Methodist church.
Mr. Steinmetz, in his long residence in Muscatine, had the uniform respect and good will of his neighbors. He was upright and honest in every respect-truly a good man.
The funeral is appointed to take place from the German Methodist church, Thursday afternoon, at 2:30 o’clock.
