He was married in June 1856, to Miss Christiana Herrlick, who died May 15th this year. He retired from farm life in 1886 and moved to the village of St. Cloud where he has since resided. The deceased was the father of eleven children, six of whom survive him, viz: Anton and Ferdinand Dreifuerst, Mrs. Lawrence Voelker, Mrs. Alfred Wagner, Mrs. Christ. Bergs of St. Cloud, and Mrs. John Limberg of Chilton. He also leave thirty-four grandchildren, and five great grandchildren.
