DEATH OF ANOTHER OLD VETERAN
Jun 19, 1898 (hand written)
Sabbath morning at nine o’clock A. KLEINDOLPH breathed his last at his home, one mile east of the city, on the river road, after an illness only three weeks. He had been a sufferer from an abscess of the stomach, when gangrene set in and his death followed as above stated.
Deceased was born in Hesse Castle, Germany, March 28, 1828, and was consequently 70 years of age, coming to America in 1850 and to Iowa in 1858, being a farmer, an industrious, honest, upright citizen, respected by all who knew him. During the late rebellion he responded to his country’s call by enlisting and serving three years in Co. A, 7th Iowa, and was a good soldier and citizen. He was quiet, unassuming and a student. He leaves a wife, two sons and a daughter, viz.: Charles and Fred. and Mrs. Fred. Giesenhaus, jr., to mourn his death.
Deceased was also a member of the First M. E. church of this city.
The funeral is appointed for to-morrow at two o’clock, from the residence.
