On Wednesday afternoon the sad news was brought to our town that Henry D. Borcherding had died suddenly at his home about four miles from our city. Deceased was born on January 13, 1837 at Husum Amt. Nienburg, Hannover, Germany. He came to America in 1867 and settled on a farm near this city where by hard work and economy he built up a home for himself and family and accumulated a goodly share of worldly possessions.

He was married in 1868 to Miss Louise Kregel in this city. There were born to them 8 children, three boys and five girls, three of whom are dead. Minnie died when five years old, Mary when 22, and William when 17 years of age. He leaves a wife and five children besides other relatives and a very large concourse of friends to mourn his death. He was a devout member of the Lutheran Church and held the position of treasurer for the past 25 years and was loved and respected by all who had the honor of his acquaintance. The funeral was held Saturday at his late home under the auspices of the Lutheran church. Rev. Janzig officiating with interment in the family cemetery. The funeral was a large one and was attended by a large number from abroad. The Press joins with the friends of the family in extending sympathy to the bereaved family in the loss of a kind father and devoted husband.

Note: Husum, Nienburg, Hannover, Germany is correct birth place.
