Pioneer Citizen Passes Away: Heart Trouble Claims the Life of T. W. Hauschild-Funeral Next Friday.

It becomes our sad duty this week to chronicle the news of the death of an esteemed pioneer citizen, Theodore W. Hauschild at the family home, one mile south of Ritzville, on Wednesday morning, April 4, 1906, at 9:20 o'clock. Death came with the bereaved wife and children at the bedside, after many weeks of serious illness, the deceased not having been out of bed since Christmas time. He had been a sufferer for the past three years with that dread disease, heart trouble, which often so quickly and quietly claims life that otherwise would be only in its prime.

Theodore William Hauschild was born in Germany, January 7th, 1848, being 59 years of age. When he was fourteen months old his parent crossed the Atlantic Ocean to the new and unknown America settling in Iowa. He was given the benefit of the local public and high schools, afterwards taking a course in engineering at Troy, New York. He was married in 1876 to Miss Sarah L. Jackson, nine childre were born to them, six of whom are living. They are Otho C., Mrs. Minola Phillippa, John C., Thomas B., Benjamin B., ad Ruby F., all living in Adams County, a sister, Mrs. Bertha Rammelsburg, resides at Shellsberg, Iowa.

He was one of the pioneer citizen of Adams County arriving at Ritzville January 2nd 1883, taking up land and following the occupation of a farmer. When the county was first organized he was appointed county surveyor and has since been elected three terms to the same position. His son, Otho O., is the present county surveyor succeeding his fathers's last term.

No word of our could solace the great grief of the sorrowing wife and children. He was a kind, loving husband, generous and affectionate father and good citizen, carrying the highest respect of friends and acquaintances throughout the state.

Funeral service will occur from the First Congregational Churc Friday afteroon at 2 o'clock, conducted by Rev. W.M. Proctor and Rev. B. E Koontz, under the auspices of Ritzville lodge No. 1010, F. and A. M., of which the deceased was a member of many years good standing.
