Their union was blessed with six children, four of whom are living. In 1888 the family came to America and settled in eastern Iowa, where they lived about eighteen years. In 1906 they moved to Humbird, where the deceased spent the remainder of his life, following his profession, the mason trade, until retiring on account of old age.

A large congregation attended the services. Burial was in the Mentor Cemetery.

The aged sister of the deceased, of Monroe, and the daughter of New Liberty, Iowa, were unable to be present on account of infirmities of age and illness.
