A GOOD WOMAN AT REST: Mrs Catherine Eygabroad dies at the home of her son in Gary, South Dakota. Catherine Worth was born in Germany, Aug. 3, 1836. When sixteen years of age she came to America with her mother and sister, landing at Buffalo, New York. Two years latter she moved to Freeport, Illinois, where she was united in marriage with John J. Eygabroad, July 29, 1855.
In 1860 they with one child moved to Iowa, locating in Fredricksburg Township, being among the few sturdy, honest, helpful pioneers of that time.
John J. Eygabroad died at Fredricksburg in 1896, since which time the deceased lived with her son John and moved with him to Gary, South Dakota in 1899 where after a very brief illness, she passed peacefully to rest, Nov. 28, 1907 aged 71 years, 5 months and 25 days.
Eleven children made happy the home circle of this family, eight of whom survive and were present at the obsequies, viz: Joseph, Alanson, Charles, Robert, John, George, William and Kate. The absent three were sweet little girls, two of whom were buried in Illinois and one in our own beautiful "Rose Hill", Fredricksburg, Iowa, where for many years she has been waiting the coming of the loved and loving mother, side-by- side with her, to sleep the coming years away.
At the tender age of eight years, Mrs. Eygabroad was confirmed in the faith of the German Methodist church and faithful member of the M.E. church leading a consistent and truly worthy Christian life. She was honored, respected and loved by all who knew her.
