  • Notes 
    • On the 24th November there died here Henry Soehner, who had gone a little past the 70th milestone. Deceased was born in 1830 in Baden, Germany, and came to this country at the age of 25 years. He worked in Berlin for some time and then came to this village, where he carried on a wagon-making business, 13 years ago he had a paralytic stroke which partially lamed him and deprived him of the power of speech which he recovered only to an imperfect degree. He patiently bore the cross thus laid upon him. Deceased always manifested a lively interest in church and school. He leaves behind a widow, four sons and two daughters, also a brother residing in Michigan, who came over to see the remains of his brother laid in the grave. The burial took place on Tuesday Nov. 27th in presence of a large number of friends. Funeral services were held by Rev. R. T. Vorberg in the Lutheran church. May the Lord comfort the bereaved family and may consolation come to them through the hope of a reunion with the departed in the realms of light where there shall be no more sorrow and tears shall cease to flow.
