From Der Nord Westen, 02 Feb. 1905:
A prominent veteran, John Goettinger, has died of old age debility at the home of his son-in-law, Peter Arnold, in Kiel. In 1862 he came to Kiel from New York with his wife and 2 daughters. He served during the war in the 45th Regiment and drew a pension. He was widely known and loved.
This week, on Wednesday morning, Mr. John Goettinger, a well known and long time resident of this village, died after a long illness, in the home of his son-in-law Peter Arnold. The deceased first saw the light of the world in Erolsheim, Wurtemberg, Germany on May 22, 1821 and immigrated to America in 1854, and first settled in New York, where he married Miss Marie Jaumann. In the year 1861, they came to Kiel, where Mr. Goettinger started a shoe maker store, from which he retired 17 years ago. The marriage was blessed with four children, two sons and two daughters, of which the first ones have already died. The funeral will take place on Saturday afternoon at 2:00 PM, at the Kiel Cemetery where he will be laid to rest next to his wife who preceded him in death in 1881. The local GAR Post, of which the deceased was a member,will give the eulogy.
