The funeral of the decedent will be held at the family home and interment will take place in the Ackermann Cemetery at 11 o'clock Thursday morning. The decedent was a native of Sacegoda, Germany, where he was born March 22, 1822. He immigrated to this country in 1846, landing at Galveston in May of that year. After a brief stay in Galveston he journeyed across Texas in a big cart drawn by oxen settling in Comal County. He came to Bexar County in 1848 where he began farming.
In the year of the great gold rush to California he married Miss Rosana Farher.
