Learn about removing the ads from this memorial...
Birth: Dec. 27, 1886
Livingston County
Illinois, USA
Death: Feb. 9, 1958
Ford County
Illinois, USA

Second child of ten of Martin and Margaretha Gerken Meyer, he farmed near Lawndale, IL and retired to Sibley, IL.

He married Lena Volsen 16 Jan 1908. They had five children.
The obituary says he was buried at Fairview Cemetery, Lawndale. However, he and Lena appear in the Mt. Hope Cemetery lists compiled in 1963 and have stones here. Perhaps his grave was moved when she died.
