Birth: 1858
Schleswig-Holstein, Germany
Death: Apr. 28, 1886
Belle Plaine

The Belle Plaine newspaper documented the tragic end of Ferdinand's life. Ferdinand unsuccessfully tried to end his own life in front of the home of his wife Catherine's brother, Hans Bruhn. She had recently left Ferdinand and was staying with him. Ferdinand died later at the home of Edward Triplett, while under the care of Dr. Sievers. The newspaper article stated that Ferdinand was buried in the "city cemetery." He left his wife, and three small children: Fred, Charley and Mary.
