He emigrated with his parents to the United States in 1875 and first resided in Fall Creek of this county but soon moved to the town of Bridge Creek where he has resided ever since.

He married in 1893 Matilda nee Grulke, his present wife. They had four children, one of whom died in infancy.

He is mourned by his widow Matilda, his 82-years-old father William, his three children, Herman, Maria and Emma, and by three brothers and three sisters.
