In 1875 he removed with his family to a farm in Taylor County and six years ago removed to this place, where he resided up to the time of his death. He leaves a widow and four sons and one daughter, Mr. Raidt was a kind and generous husband and father, and was highly respected by all. The funeral occurred on Saturday last, Rev. A. M.

Oh, I did some searching on ancestry, and I believe that his father's name, was Morris.
