Henry W. Hartwig, son of August and Caroline Hartwig, was born November 23, 1852, and passed away March 7, 1936, at the home of his son, Richard, on North Seventh street in this city, at the ripe age of 83 years, 3 months and 13 days.
Mr. Hartwig was born on a farm in Adams county, Illinois, on that section in which Washington Park in the city of Quincy is now situated. His father was associated with Governor John Wood in a business way during his stay in Illinois. It will be remembered that the statue of Governor Wood is situated at the east entrance to the park.
When he was but a boy Mr. Hartwig's parents moved to Lewis county, Missouri, near St. Patrick. He spent his entire life on a farm, with the exception of the last few years which he spent in the homes of his children.
He was married on February 22, 1877, to Julia Elizabeth Dick. Seven children were born, six sons and one daughter. The wife and two sons, George Henry and Andrew Frederick, preceded him in death.
He is survived by four sons and one daughter, Mrs. R. H. Reiter of Quincy, and the sons Oliver W. and Richard L. both of Canton, Emery F. of Carthage, Ill., and Frederick C. of Akron, Iowa. He also leaves, together with his many friends, twenty-two grandchildren, six great-grandchildren and seven nephews and nieces.
Mr. Hartwig was a member of the Wyaconda Baptist church, having united with the Monticello Baptist church about forty years ago, he later removed his membership to the Wyaconda church.
In 1905 he was married to Annie M. McPheeters of LaGrange. She passed away on December 17, 1933.
He was a kind father, a good friend and neighbor and well esteemed by all who knew him.
And so, another pioneer has been gathered to his fathers, leaving a rich heritage of integrity to his children which it is theirs to emulate.
The funeral was conducted from the First Baptist church on Monday afternoon at 2 o'clock by the Rev. T. Elmer Jones.
Music was furnished by D. A. Alderton, Art Goetz, Mr. Walker and Mr. Jones, with Mrs. Jones at the piano.
