HERMAN FREDERICK BARTHEL died at the home of his brother, William, near Milledgeville March 23, 1895, at the age of 75 years and 13 days. He was born in Germany, March 10, 1820 and in 1847 he came to this country, followed one year later by his brother, William. He at once took up his residencc in Illinois, in which state he has been a constant resident. He came to Milledgeville in 1857 at which place he was engaged in different pursuits. In 1856, at Fairhaven, he was united in marriage to Miss Dorothea Timmel. They had born to them ten children; four of whom, with their mother mourn his loss; five are buried at South Elkhorn.

Mrs. Barthel, Herman and Alvin were with him at his death. During his early life he united with the German Lutheran church, of which he has been a constant and faithful member. He was a true Christian, as his purpose in life was to provide for his family, that they might be comfortable and happy. His ableness to others made him many true friends. About two years ago he was stricken with a dreaded disease to which he had to succumb. His sufferings were borne uncomplainingly. He was conscious that he had to go, he patiently and silently awaited the end, and at 6:25, Saturday evening he quietly passed away in the arms of his son. Funeral services were conducted by Rev. Divan Tuesday forenoon and burial was in Bethel cemetery south of town.
