DR ENGELBRECHT DIES AT STONYHILL
Practiced In the Same Community for Over 51 Years
Dr. John Engelbrecht died at his home in Stonyhill last Thursday morning, March 15, after having served as a doctor in Franklin county for more than a half century - 51 years. He was 77 years old at the time of his death.
Funeral services were conducted last Sunday at St. James Evangelical church in Stonyhill.
Dr. Engelbrecht was born August 27, 1867, near Drake, MO, and grew to young manhood in that community. He parents died when he was quite young.
After he graduated from high school, he entered the St. Louis Homeopathic Medical college and was graduated from that school in the spring of 1893. He was married to Miss Anna Louise Hilkerbaumer, February 26, 1893.
He opened an office in Berger after his graduation, but remained there only a few months when he moved to Stonyhill in November, 1893, and has lived there ever since. He had a very large practice and was well known by most people in this county, as well as Gasconade county, where he took care of the ills and distresses of unnumbered people in the fifty one year that he practiced.
He had always been in the best of health until he fell on the ice at his home last January 1. He failed to regain his strength after that and other ailments and complications finally set in.
Besides his widow and children, he leaves to mourn many other relatives and a great host of friends.
