Quoted from "History of Adams county," 1879: "He is a member of the German Protestant Association; Republican. He has been in business twenty-three years. His residence is on a large block, and is very desirable for a first-class home; erected with all modern improvements - shrubbery, grapery, ice-house, etc."

Henry Christopher "H.C." or "Chris" Dasbach passed away from complications of pneumonia at Blessing hospital in Quincy. His wife had passed away in 1892. H.C. Dasbach is buried in Woodland cemetery near his wife and family.
