Death: Nov. 5, 1873

The sudden death of Martin Weber, late of the Moline Brewery, at Rock Island on Wednesday morning the 5th, took our people by surprise. The deceased had sold his brewery and made arrangements to leave for Germany with his wife. He intended to leave on Wednesday night but death took him before he got away.

Mr. Weber was a native of Wurttemburg and came to this country in 1856. He was a resident of Moline fifteen years. For several years his health was failing. The immediate cause of his death was nervous prostration. He died easily and suddenly and suffered no pain.

Martin Weber's funeral was largely attended on Thursday, by acquaintances both from this city and Rock Island. The Concordia and German School Societies, of which the deceased was a member, turned out in good numbers.

Among the mourners was Fred Durr, of Orion, who was a half brother of the deceased.
