22 June 1915 - The Clinton Advertiser

Maquoketa, Ia. - Jerry Rutenbeck was born April 4, 1845 in Schleswig, Denmark. He came to America and in 1872 was married to Nellie Olsen at Charlotte. He came to Maquoketa and engaged in the lumber business and was soon joined by his wife. For a time they farmed where George Wendell now resides south of town. Then he went into the junk business for the remainder of his life. Two children were born to them, one dying in infancy and Claus of Davenport, who survives to mourn the death of a faithful, loving father. His wife passed away in May 1905, since which time Mr. Rutenbeck has lived at the home on South Main street alone.

He was attended by his niece, Miss Tillie Oleson of Mitchell, S.D., who is a nurse there. He died Thursday night in Davenport where he was taken for treatment. The funeral took place at 1 p.m. on Sunday, June 20, at his home on S. Main street, Rev. D. F. Boomershine officiating, and interment was made in Mt. Hope cemetery.
