OLD SETTLER GONE
John Siegrist, for Thirty Years, a Citizen of Reno County has daparted This Life 84 YEARS OLD AND WELL KNOWN Leaves Family of Industrious Sons and Daughters - Never Sick But Once Before in Long Lifetime.
Another sturdy oak has fallen and lies dead. The winds of many years have finally overcome it and the life of John Siegrist has gone out. He died yesterday at his home, three miles southwest of Hutchinson, after an illness of five weeks. Old age claimed him and his death was due to failure of natural powers.
John Siegrist was born in Lancaster County, Pa. Jan.18, 1823, and was 84 years and over six months old at his death. He was married April 24, 1849 to Elizabeth Yontz, of Lancaster City, Pa., who survives him. More than eight years ago they celebrated their golden wedding anniversary.
Mr. Siegrist was the father of seven children, six of whom lived to become grown. These six are among the substantial citizens of Kansas, five of them living in this county, honored citizens. The six are, J.L. Siegrist, A.L. Siegrist, G.W. Siegrist, Mrs. George Spangenberger, and Mrs. J.C. Epperson, all of Hutchinson, and Mrs. William Hodson of Herrington.
Mr. Siegrist moved to Tazewell County, Illinois in 1849, living there for twenty-seven years. He moved to Reno County in 1877, settling thirty years ago on the farm in South Reno where he ended his days. Mr. Siegrist was really sick but twice in his life; when about 40 years of age, when he had measles, and the other time this last fatal illness. His children have inter-married with other families until his immediate relatives number eight families, and this is the 2nd death to occur in the group in thirty years.
The funeral will be held from the farm at 2 p.m., Saturday, conducted by Rev. W.B. Stevens of the Poplar Methodist church.
