Eisenhard, Jacob (May 22, 1866 - Feb. 1933)
Death came suddenly last Friday afternoon to Jacob Eisenhard at his home in Garden Valley, as he and his sons returned from the woods with a load of poles. He fell by the side of the load as they started to unload, and expired, his heart disease being the cause of death. He attained the age of 66 years, 8 months and 11 days.
Jacob Eisenhard was born in Germany May 22, 1866. At the age of eighteen years he came to this country with his parents, and lived with them on a farm east of Humbird. Soon after his arrival in this country he went to work at his trade as tailor, for Mr. Hanson, at Merrillan. He followed the tailor trade until he was twenty eight years old.
He was married to Emma Smith in October, 1897. After his marriage he was engaged in farming on his father's farm east of Humbird, and after two years on this farm he brought a farm north of town. After living there for several years, he moved to a farm in Garden Valley, where he lived until the time of his death. His wife passed away January, 11, 1926.
He is survived by three sons, Harry and Charles of Garden Valley, and Roy of Fall Creek; also one sister, Mrs. George Laffe, of Humbird, and two brothers, Christ, of Humbird, and Henry, of Chicago.
