HOMESTEADER DEAD

Frederick Ahlbright, 87, was born in Johnson County, IA., June 29, 1843, resided on his homestead nine miles northeast of Hastings since 1873, departed this life at the family home at 11:30 o'clock Thursday night.

On the 19th day of January, 1866 he married Hannah Cisne, Mrs. Ahlbright preceded him in death having departed this life November 20, 1911. This happy union was blessed with eleven children, nine of whom survive him. They are A.F. Albright of Hansen; Mrs. Julia Smith of Doniphan; Mrs. Addie Truman of Kenesaw; Mrs. Myrtle Wolfe of Shelton; Mrs. Hannah Huff and Mrs. Carrie Hudson of Hansen; Mrs. Nellie Kelso of Phillips; Mary and Clara Albright at home. One son died October 18, 1872 and one daughter on the twentieth day of May, 1907. There are ten grandchildren who mourn his departure.

Mr. Albright on the ninth day of November 1860 enlisted in Company K., Iowa 5th Regiment of Volunteer Mounted Cavalry. He participated in the battle of White Stone Hill, Dakota against the Indians on September 3, 1862. In this battle he received a severe wound, and arrow piercing his leg. He lay on the field for 24 hours before aid was procured. On a special field order he was discharged September 25, 1862. On the eighth day of December, 1862 he enlisted in the Union Army, in Company I 6th Iowa Regiment. From this service he was honorably discharged October 17, 1865. Mr. Ahlbright was a member of the G.A.R., the Silas A. Strickland Post No. 11 at Hastings.

Mr. Ahlbright was one of the pioneers of this community having homesteaded here in the year 1873 on the eighth day of October. He joined the Methodist Church while a resident in Johnson County, IA. He was a man who loved his home. In turn he was loved and cherished by his family. They ministered to him tenderly in the last days of his life.

In the community perhaps the outstanding monument to him is the beautiful Greenwood Cemetery. With others, he gave much time and thought to it. He has served as one of the association's officers and always gave thoughtful and careful supervision. And to this silent city that he helped create and beautify was committed his body as his last resting place.
