John Lange Chilton Times July 30, 1910
A letter bearing date July 8th was received by The Times editor from Wm Lange, Gustau, Germany, informing us that his uncle, John Lange, died at that place on June 15, at the age of 89 years. 7 months and 11 days. This announcement will be read with deep regret by many of the early pioneers of this section and the surviving soldiers of the civil war. The deceased was formerly a resident of this county. He came to this vicinity in the early fifties from Germany and for a short time made his home with his sister. Mrs. G. Reich, and later located on the farm adjacent to this city now owned by Franz Christoph and which was purchased by the latter some seventeen years ago, when Mr. Lange returned to his native home. John Lange was a veteran of the civil war and enlisted in Company K, of the Fourth Cavalry in this city, under General Harrison C. Hobart on June 15, 1861, just exactly forty-nine years previous to the day of his death. He left Chilton two days after his enlistment for the south and served until Aug. 22, 1865, when he was honorably discharged. He was with his regiment in all its campaigns and he was made sergeant of his company. His comrades spoke of him as a soldier who had no fear. Upon his return from the war he continued farming until his retirement. For the past seventeen years he made his home at the birthplace in Gustau, with Wm Lange's folks and for years was an invalid. For nearly three years he was cared for by a sister of Wm. Lange's at Glogan and Rath. There are few of his old comrades living in this section now, for nearly all have crossed the valley of death, but the few left will be sorely grieved to hear of his death.
