Wm. Abeln Dies Near Salisbury; Funeral Tuesday

William Abeln, well-known German farmer North of Salisbury, died Sunday morning about 6 o'clock after an illness of several months. He had been up and about most of the time until about three weeks ago, when he submitted to an operation in a Kansas City Hospital, since which time he had been bedfast.
He was a native of St. Louis county, born in 1867. His wife who died three years ago, was Miss Elizabeth Moser, of the same community, and they were married before moving to Salisbury to make their home. Eight children were born to them and seven survive: Ben Abeln, near Prairie Hill, Willis Abeln, near Wien, Mrs. Frank Grapperhaus, Aholt, Mrs. Clifford Stevens, Northeast of Salisbury, and Joe Abeln, Miss Minnie Abeln, and Miss Mary Abeln of the home.
There are seventeen grandchildren. Besides these he is survived by three brothers; Ben Abeln, of Chicago, Louis Abeln and Wm. Abeln both near Salisbury, Mrs. A. Rickstetter of Salisbury, Mrs. Fabian Ginter of New Franklin, Mrs. Howard Stanley of Newton, Kan., and Sister Salesia of the Sisters of the Precious Blood of O'Fallon, Mo.
Funeral services will be at St. Joseph's Catholic Church Tuesday morning at 9 A.M. Burial will be at the Catholic Cemetery.
