Manitowoc County
Wisconsin, USA
Death: Jan. 21, 1899
Denver County
Colorado, USA


From Der Nord Westen, 26 Jan. 1899:
On Sat. Mr. Gottlob Rudolph here received a telegram from Denver stating
that his son Robert had died there. The deceased was born here 14 May 1859.
At one time he was a teacher here but several years ago when his illness
struck he went to Denver hoping that the climate would help. He found no
relief there. He leaves a widow and one child. His brother Richard Rudolph
left immediately for Denver to accompany the casket here.
The remains of Robert Rudolph arrived last evening on the 4:20
train from Denver, Col., where he died last Saturday. The funeral
service was conducted this afternoon at the Rudolph home on Clark
street. A large concourse of friends were present and many floral
tributes testified their regard for the deceased. The Concordia
Singing Society was present and sang a few dirges. The services
were conducted by Mr. Hubert Falge and the following acted as
Jos. Staehle, Jr., Al. Engle, Anton Trochell, Chas. Wegfarth,
Chris. Gielow and Chas. Wallschlaeger.

Message Received in the City Saturday Announces Death of Robert Rudolph.
Deceased Was a Former Teacher in Public Schools Here, and Left for
the West Ten Years Ago.
A telegram was received in this city late Saturday afternoon
announcing the death of Robert Rudolph, which occured at Denver,
Colorado. The sad tidings was a shock to members of the family
here as it was not known that he was ill. No details of the
death have been received and the cause of his demise is as yet
Robt. Rudolph was the son of Mr. and Mrs. Gottlieb Rudolph, of
this city, and was born here May 14, 1859. For a number of years
he was engaged as instructor in the public schools of the city
and was well and favorably known. He was married in March, 1886,
to Miss Harriet Moss, and they continued to reside here until
1889, when Mr. Rudolph's health began to fail him and they
removed to the west, in the hope that the change of the climate
would be beneficial. They located at Denver where he engaged in
the real estate business, which he followed up to the time of
his death. They returned here for a visit about six years ago and
at that time Mr. Rudolph was much improve in health and it was
hoped that a permanant cure had been effected.
Besides the relatives in this city the deceased leaves a wife and
one child to whom his death will be a serious blow.
Richard Rudolph, a brother of the dead man, left for Denver
yesterday and will bring the body here for burial. It is not known
when the funeral will be held, but the remains will probably arrive
Wednesday evening. The grief stricken family have the sympathy of
the communtiy.
