Henry Boester, 69 years old, died on Wednesday at his home here, after a few days' illness. He came to this country from Germany in 1870, was a pioneer resident of Hicksville, and owned one of the best farms in the county. He was a shoemaker and since moving from the farm had done repair work here, after friends had persuaded him to take up the work as there was a scarcity of cobblers here, and he met an urgent need in this line of work. Funeral services were held Friday at the Lutheran church. Burial was in Forest Home cemetery.
