GROTELUSCHEN, GERHARD (March 24, 1858 - March 10, 1933) - [The Columbus Daily Telegram, March 11, 1933, pg. 4, col. 6]
Gerhard Groteluschen, 74, resident of Colfax county and Columbus for over 50 years, died at 4:45 p.m. yesterday at his home 2204 Nineteenth street, following a lingering illness. Mr. Groteluschen had been in failing health for the last 14 months, and was bedfast for the last eight months. His death was due to hardening of the arteries and other complications incident to his advanced age. Born on March 24, 1858, at Sager, Grossenkoetten, Germany, he came to this country at the age of 22 years. He did not tarry on the eastern coast, but came directly to Nebraska, and a short time after his arrival he purchased a farm 18 miles northeast of Columbus, just across the line in Colfax county. On June 30, 1887, he was united in marriage to Miss Anna Mary Reiss, a native of Illinois, at the Christ Lutheran church, north of Columbus. They established their home on Mr. Groteluschen's farm, where they resided until 1919 when they moved to Columbus to retire from active farm life. Mr. and Mrs. Groteluschen were devout members of Christ Lutheran church. He was prominent for many years in the community south of Leigh, and was held in highest esteem by all who knew him. Since residing in Columbus, Mr. Groteluschen has attended the Immanuel Lutheran church, having affiliated with that church when he and Mrs. Groteluschen moved into Columbus. Since coming to this country, Mr. Groteluschen made two return visits to his fatherland to visit with relatives, Mrs. Groteluschen accompanying him on both trips. He is survived by his widow; one brother, Herman Groteluschen, and one sister, Mrs. Anna Bakenhus, both residing at Sager, Grossenkoetten, Germany. Funeral services will be held at 2:30 p.m. Monday at the Immanuel Lutheran church, with Rev. A.H. Guettler, pastor, officiating. The body will lie in state at the Gass Funeral home until tomorrow afternoon, when it will be removed to the home.
