    • Death of Mrs. J.E. Albrecht

      The Record is called upon to chronicle to-day the death of Mrs. John E. Albrecht, who was for over half a century a resident of Berlin. The death took place at the home of her son Frederick C. on Friday, at Columbus, Ohio where she has had her home for a year past. She was in her 77th year and for over fifty years she had been a resident of Berlin. She was born in Neu Sembzin, Mecklenburg Schwerin, Germany on April 7th, 1833 and was therefore 76 years, 5 months and 11 days old. She came to Berlin 1854 and in January 1856, she married John F. Albrecht, who predeceased her 31 years ago. The deceased's name before marriage was Henrietta Hertz and she was the last surviving member of that family. A family of eight children was born to them of whom five sons survive, John M. of Cincinnati, Ohio; Charles of Lorainne, Ohio; Frederick of Columbus, Ohio; Louis and Gustave of Berlin. The remains are being brought to Berlin for burial. They will be taken to the home of Mr. Gustave Albrecht, 149 Wellington St. from where the funeral will he held on Tuesday afternoon at 1: 30 to St. Paul's Luth. Church and Mount Hope Cemetery.
