Learn about sponsoring this memorial...
Birth: Mar. 2, 1851
Trier-Saarburger Landkreis
Rheinland-Pfalz, Germany
Death: Jan. 12, 1918
Stevens Point
Portage County
Wisconsin, USA

Born in Rheinfeldt, Germany


John Eiden died at the home of his daughter, Mrs. George W. Allen, 111 Jefferson street at 12:30 o'clock Saturday afternoon. Death was caused by hardening of the arteries. He had been in falling health for three years and since November last had been confined to his bed. For many years residents of Ellis, Mr. and Mrs. Eiden came to Stevens Point a year ago when poor health prevented the former caring out his farm work.

The deceased was born in Rheinfeldt, Germany, 68 years ago on March 2 and came to this country with his parents at the age of six years. After a short residence at Fond du Lac they came to Ellis, which has been the family home ever since. Mr. Eiden was united in marriage to Miss Anne Marie Schliesmann at St Martin's Catholic church at Ellis on November 28, 1877. For many years he conducted a general store at that place and was postmaster there for 22 years. At different times he also held other local offices. For the past years the Eiden farm at Ellis has been rented.

Surviving relatives include the widow, one daughter, Mrs. George W. Allen, and three grandchildren. One son died in infancy and another son, Nicholas Eiden, died in 1903 at the age of 20 years. Mr. Eiden was the last of a family of nine brothers, five of whom came to this country.

The remains will be taken to Ellis Tuesday morning and services will be held from St. Martin's Catholic church at 10 o'clock. Rev. H.J. Ehr of this city will officiate.
