John St. Wrba.

John St. Wrba died at the family home here Wednesday, September 5, and burial took place in St. Rosa Cemetery, Friday, Father Meiser officiating.

Mr. St. Wrba was one of the pioneers of this section and had much to do with its early development. Several colonies were brought from the old country by him and are among the prominent citizens today. He was born in Frenstat, Austria, in 1853, coming to America at Galveston in 1871, and the following year moved to Fayetteville, where he married Miss Julia Sladek in September 1872. They moved to Schulenburg in 1873 where he was engaged in business until 1904.

He is survived by his wife and nine children, Joe, of Houston; Willibald, of Granger; John and Frank, of Caldwell; Arnold, of Cleburne; Rudolph, of Fayetteville; Mrs. Frank Kubala, of Temple; Mrs. F. J. Foitik and Miss Mary of this city.

Those from out of town attending the funeral were:

Mr. and Mrs. Rud. Foitik and daughters, Anita and Eulalie, Mr. and Mrs. A. Foitik, Mrs. Theresa Lieck, Will Koch and family F. Svesta and Mrs. Fred. Laux, of Flatonia; Rud. Spacek and mother, J. R. Kubena and Rud. Sladek, of Fayetteville; Jos. Bartosch, of Weimar; Miss Marie Machalek, of Temple.
