    • Heinrich Braun

      The well-known master brick-layer, Heinrich Braun, died in Berlin on Tuesday morning of dropsy after a long illness, at the age of 64 years, 9 months and 18 days. He was born in Cleba, District of Hersfeld, Jurisdiction of Niederaula, in the former principality of Hesse, learned the brick-layer's trade at the age of 16 years, and entered the body-guard of the principality of Kassel, where he served for 3 years. In 1857, he emigrated to America and arrived in Berlin, where he has lived ever since, with the exception of several years which he spent in Cincinnati. In 1863, he married Henriette W. B. Hardel from Sparsee, Pomerania, and together, they produced 3 sons and 6 daughters, of which 3 sons and 2 daughters are still living, namely Caspar, Minnie and Mary in Berlin and Andrew and Edward in Cincinnati.

      He was a hard working, diligent, obliging man; he had many friends and enjoyed the respect and trust of his fellow citizens to a high degree; he represented them for 6 years on the municipal council. As a master builder, he executed many contracts and many a building in Berlin and area is his work. For the last 9 years, he did not undertake any more contracts and worked instead with his son. His burial will take place tomorrow afternoon (Thursday) at 2 p.m.1a

      _______________________________

      Henry Braun, mason, began his career as a contractor in 1864. He continued till 1889, when he was succeeded by his son Casper. The son built some of the principal churches and factories of his time. Later on, he engaged in the monument business on the corner of King and Water Streets. Of late years the works have been situated at 16 Andrew Street. Since Mr. Braun's death in 1937, his son, G. B. Braun, is manager of the estate. Casper Braun gained the lasting esteem of the public.2a
