GROTELUSCHEN, JOHN HENRY (May 7, 1860 - May 1, 1938) - [The Columbus Daily Telegram, May 2, 1938, pg. 3, col. 4]
John Henry Groteluschen, 78, who came to this country from Germany 50 years ago, and who for many years worked as a farm hand on Platte county farms, died at 12, noon, yesterday at St. Mary's hospital, where he was a patient for the past month.
His health broke two and a half years ago when he suffered a stroke. From that time until he was removed to the hospital, Apr. 1, he lived with his cousin, Mrs. Diedrich Hollman, and Mr. Hollman, at their farm home three and one-half miles southeast of Creston. His death was due to hardening of the arteries.
The son of Mr. and Mrs. John Groteluschen, he was born at Sage, Oldenburg, Germany, May 7, 1860. He was confirmed in the Lutheran faith at Grossen-Kneten, Apr. 18, 1876. As a young man he served a three-year period in the Oldenburg Infantry regiment, No. 91. In 1888 he came to this country.
He located first on a farm near Schuyler, where he farmed for himself for a few years. Then he went to work as a hired man on the Hollman farm where he worked for many years. Next he was employed by Siegfried Loseke, in the Bissell neighborhood. He was employed there when he was taken sick.
Surviving are a sister, Mrs. Katherina Groteluschen of Grossen-Kneten, Germany, and two cousins, Mrs. Hollman, and Louis Behrens, the latter of Cordova, Md.
Funeral services will be held at 2 p.m., Wednesday, at the Gass Funeral chapel, with Rev. J.H. Steger, pastor of the Evangelical Protestant church, officiating, and burial will be made in Roselawn Memorial cemetery.
