From Russell Reformer - August 29, 1913
The death of Frederick Strecker, Sr., was referred to in these columns last week. It occurred at noon last Friday. He was one of the oldest and most highly respected members of the large German-Russian colony. In his 36 years' residence in this country he has made a place for himself as a sensible, solid and useful citizen.

John Friedrich Strecker was born Jan. 30, 1936, at Grimm, Russia. He grew up there and was married in 1853 to Miss Catherina Margaret MILLER who died in 1877. They came to this country in 1877 and settled about two miles east of Milberger where he lived until ten or twelve years go when he moved to the place south of the cemetery where his son, Peter, resides. Later he moved to town and lived in acre property in the extreme east part of town. The residence now belonging to Herman Krause. About two years ago he brought the Rockefeller residence in which he has since resided.

To the union above referred to six children were born as follows: Jacob, who lives in the Milberger country, John Peter, Henry and August, all of whom live near Russell, Mrs. Jacob (Amelia) Becker of Milberger and Mrs. Emanuel (Pauline) Morgenstern of Oakley, Kansas. Some time after the death his first wife, he was married Mrs. Elizabeth (Gillig)FOSE who survives him. They had one child, Benjamin F., who is employed with J. W. Blair at the furniture store. He leaves three brothers, George Jacob, who lives in Russia, Henry who lives in Barton County, and Jacob, lately county commissioner, who lives in Russell. There are four sisters: Mrs. Eva Fritzler, Mrs. Ann Ahlbrandt, both of whom live in Russia, Mrs. George (Mary) Reinhardt of Big Creek and Mrs. Margaret Strecker, who lives in this county.

The funeral services was held from the German Lutheran church Sunday afternoon and the esteem in which the deceased was held is shown by the fact that attendance was about the largest the town has ever seen. The service was by pastor, Rev. William Harder, and interment was in the Russell Cemetery.
