MATTHIAS DIETRICH DEAD
Old and Well Known Resident of Elwood, Answered Summons.
Matthias Deitrich, one of Elwood's old and well liked citizens died this morning at his home at 238 North Fifth street, after an illness of some time, hemorrhages contributing to the affection which resulted in his demise. He was a native of Germany, came to this country when a young lad, and worked hard all of his life, conducted himself as a good citizen and raised an excellent family. His aged wife and family of grown children survive, to whom the sympathy of the community was extended. One child is in Iowa, one in Illinois. Another lives at Alexandria. Until they are heard from, no arrangements for the funeral will be made. The Deceased was of the Catholic belief and the funeral will be conducted by the local pastor of the church.

I could not find your grave when I visited St. Joseph's. Maybe someone else can add a picture.|
