Jacob Frederick Senner was born in Whittenberg, Germany 1845 and died May 13, 1915, at his home in the west part of Jackson Co., KS, aged 70 years. Mr. Senner came to America in the year of 1865. In 1866 he came to Kansas, and lived in Nemaha Co. for four years. In the Spring of 70 he took a homestead on the west line of Jackson Co., where he has since made his home with the exception of a brief time in Holton.
On April 2, 1883 he was united in marriage to Miss Elizabeth Lutz, of Holton and to this union was born five children, two sons John and Frederick; three daughters, Clara, who is now Mrs. Boling; Flora and Ella, all of whom survive. The funeral took place from the Bucks Grove church May 15 at 3 o'clock where a large assembly of friends and neighbors took part in giving comfort to the sorrowing.
Mr senner was confirmed in the Lutheran church in Germany, and always maintained that faith. He leaves to mourn his departure, his wife, five children, and two brothers. Thus another of our old settlers has gone. One by one ye shall be gathered.
Burial - 15 May 1915
