In group of 3 headstones - C. Koenig,and(Fred Koenig (153863178

Hazleton, PA Plain Speaker Saturday, May 2, 1891

John Moritz Koenig, who died on Tuesday last at his home in Butler Valley, and who was buried yesterday morning, was one of the oldest, if not the oldest resident of Butler Valley at the time of his death.

He was born in Germany on May 25,1805, and was in his eighty-sixth year, a good round age.

He emigrated to this country in the spring of 1846 and has ever since resided in Butler Valley, following the occupation of farming. Nearly all of our old residents knew Farmer Koenig, and his death will revive memories of many years ago.
