"Mr. Lewis Kreh, a well known and respected citizen, died last evening at 5.30 o'clock at his late residence, 65 West South street, of paralysis of the heart. Mr. Kreh was born March 30th, 1828 in Schaafheim, Hesse Darmstadt, Germany, and emigrated to this country in 1848 and located in this city. He worked at his trade, that of stone mason, and has helped to erect the old stone bridge on East Patrick street, the receiver, Montevue Hospital, White Hill's Row and numerous other buildings in this city. In 1864, he married Miss Eve M. Falk, daughter of the late Christian Falk, of this city, who survives him, together with three daughters, Mrs. Jos. Hoffman, Miss Lizzie and Miss Katie, both unmarried, and three sons, Theodore, Henry and Edward, all of whom reside in this city. Prior to his coming to this country he held to the Lutheran church, but here united with the German Reformed church of which he was a faithful member for many years, but lately he had been a regular attendant of the Lutheran church. He was also a member of the German organization, "Hari Gara". He was always a man of remarkable energy and until about two months prior to his death had the best of health. By his death the last member of the original Kreh family has passed away. He was aged 62 years and 1 day. The funeral will take place from the late home Thursday afternoon, at 2 o'clock.
