John Frederick Baze, a young man of Osco township, passed away at the home of Mrs. Charles Hamann in Geneseo, April 24, 1924.  He had been ill with diabetes for six months.  Two weeks ago he contracted pneumonia but he seemed to rally and gained a little the strength.  Tuesday April 23 he was taken to the home  of Mrs. Hamann, where he thought he could be under closer observation of a doctor, se that he might gain a little strength; but on Wednesday evening he suffered a relapse and death came at 10:40 Thursday morning.  He was a very patient sufferer never murmuring or complaining,  Everything that loving hands could do was done for him but to no avail.  He was the youngest son of Mrs. and Mrs. Gust Baze.  He was born at Thornburg, Iowa, May 20, 1900.  At the time of his death he was aged 23 years, 10 months and 26 days.  When four years of age his parents moved to Osco township in the same locality where they now reside.  here he went to school and grew to young manhood.  No task was to great for him, he was always willing and glad to help his fellowmen.  To know John or Jack as he was mostly called was to love him, wherever he went the made friends.  Those who are left to mourn are his father and mother, three brothers and three sister, Mrs. Ed. Sommers of Owatonna, Minn., William and Henry of Osco, Robert of Geneseo, Mrs. Ida Yahnke of Osco, and Miss Martha Baze of Kewanee.   The funeral was held at the home of his sister, Mrs. Ida Yahnke and he was  laid to rest in the Morristown cemetery.  The floral tributes were many and beautiful.   The pallbearers were Harry Hornecker, Herbert Samuelson, Clyde Blank, Floyd Kringjob, Leo Long, and George Blair.

Neville, Jennie (Carson)   3-4-1872   12-7-1917
Republic of 12-14-1917
Deep sorrow came to the many friends in this community and throughout Henry county when the word went forth that Mrs. R. G. Neville had died at her home adjoining the village of Osco, Friday, December 7th.  Mrs. Neville a short time previous to her passing submitted to an operation from which it was thought she was recovering and she returned to her home.  The family and friends had every reason to think that she would soon be restored to health and strength and be permitted to again enter the activities of the community.  A turn for the worse set in early last week and death followed on Friday.  Mrs. Neville was active in the life of this community.  Her passing is a distinct loss not only to her home but to the life of the community.  Mrs. Neville was a woman of culture and refinement, and possessed of a genial kind nature.  She had a host of friends who mourn with the family at her untimely passing.  Jennie Carson was born in Western township, March 4, 1872, and died at her home in Osco, December 7, 1917, aged forty-five years, nine months, and four days.  She was married to Robert G. Nevillie, January 2, 1901.  Surviving to mourn her passing are the husband, Robert G. Neville, and four children, Alex, now ill in a hospital at Rochester, Minn., Robert at Rock Island, Harold at Osco, and Edythe at home.  There also mourn three brothers and two sisters: John, William, and Blanch, who live near Orion, James living west of Orion, and Agnes at Davenport.  The funeral was held at the village church, Sunday at 1:00 p.m., Rev. Guthrie, of Orion officiating.  The singers were Mrs. Patterson, Miss Ethel Smith, J. Heber Smith, Bert Polson, R. Hinman.  The officers and members of Orion Chapter Easter Star of which Mrs. Neville was a member, had a part in the service.   (She is listed at Morristown Cemetery.)

OSCAR FREDERICK GAESSNER
Oscar Frederick Gaessner, a resident of the Morristown neighborhood in Osco township since 1875, passed away on the farm which has all hose years been his home, Friday, August 30, 1918, at high noon.  No citizen of Henry county ever enjoyed the esteem of his fellow citizens in greater measure than did Mr. Gaessner.  He was of a quiet retiring disposition, of a kindly and generous nature and all who came to know him held him in high esteem.  He loved his vocation which he had made his life work, that of farming, and was very successful.  A large circle of friends mourn with the two surviving children at the passing of this good man.   Oscar Fredrick Gaessner was born at Weishelburg, Saxony, Germany, where he received his schooling and spent the days and years of his youth.  It was here that he met and married Miss Bertha Ebigt, February 9, 1875.  Two months later accompanied by his bride he came to America and directly to Illinois, locating on the farm near Morristown which has since then been his home.  The married life of Mr. and Mrs.. Gasser was blessed with peace, happiness, and long extended years and the birth of three children.  One of these, a daughter Olga, died at the tender age of six years.  A son Charles and daughter Alma who are now living on the homestead survive.  The mother of this home of so many years happiness passed away September 6, 1915  Mr. Gaessner was a model citizen, a true and faithful husband and a loving father.  The flowers played an important part in his life.  It was mutual love of flowers that brought him and his wife together, and it was the love of flowers that actually caused them to leave the native land and come to America, because a newly constructed railroad ruined his garden of flowers and he became discouraged and left for what was to be his future home.  The last physical work he engaged in was the planting of tulips.  Mr. Gaessner's last illness was a long and lingering one, but he was brave and cheerful to the very end on Friday last when after thanking his children for all their kindness he fell asleep.  There  also survive a brother and three sisters who still live in Germany.  Funeral services were held at the home Monday, September 2, and after a brief service at the home conducted in the German language, and a song sung by the Geneseo mixed quartet, the funeral services were concluded at the Morristown church in the English language.  Rev. Fleer spoke on the subject, "Some Have Fallen Asleep."  The Geneseo mixed quartet rendered "Somewhere," and "Nearer My God To Thee."  The father was laid to rest in the Morristown cemetery

Robin,
The deaths of Alberta & Albert Krinjob (they were twins born premature at 6months) they were buried at Morristown cem. I show that Agnes (Roesner) Krinjoh died June 14, 1931 and was buried in the Oakwood cem, but it shows that she was divorced from Adolph Krinjob. Adolph Krinjoh Jr died September 11, 1943, was buried in Morristown cem, but shows widowed on death certificate.  Adolph Henry Krinjob died June 10, 1925, but was buried in St Johns cem.  I hope this makes some sense, if you have any other questions feel free to contact me.

Maeltzer, Baby Boy    1/12/1872    1/12/1872
John William Maeltzer was born April 28, 1832, in Saxony, a prvince of Prussia. When William (as they called him) or Black William because of his dark complexion was about 16, his family decided to move to America. His parents names are not known. It is thought that his younger brother, about 14 was named Ignatious. Shortly before they left Germany, their mother became ill and died. The father died in New York, so the two brothers went with some of the other immigrants to Henry County Illinois, to what they called Brown's Grove. This was 8 1/2 miles southwest of Geneseo and 5 miles northeast of Osco. The brothers found work among farmers in the area. Most work was done by hand and ox teams were used to farm the land. The brothers worked hard and took work where it could be found. Because of that, the brothers drifted apart and never did find each oother again. Communications were poor at this time. Mail delivery was limited to rural areas and the brotherd could not write english. William stayed in Edford Twp. Henryc Co. IL. He married Ernestine Holke in 1865. Ernestine came to this country with five brothers, David, Charles (also known as Carl), and Julius who lived in the area and Fred and August who moved to Nebraska. After Ernestine and William were married, they either rented or share-farmed land from the Brown's Farm. It was land that had been cleared of timber and wolf and other wildlife inhabited  that aread nearby that was still wooded. They had four children; Augusta on August 25, 1867; Gustave on August 30, 1868; Emma on September 23, 1870 and a baby boy in 1872. Ernestine died in childbirth along with her baby son. They were buried in the same casket, the baby son in his mothers arms forever. They were buried in Morristown cemetery. No marker remains and records are incomplete. Bertha Waschke born October 5, 1852, came to Henry County from West Prussia in 1872. She was alone and had no money and needed work. She stayed with some relatives of her step father by the name of Nehring who lived in Geneseo. Ernestine Holke Maeltzler's step father was also Nehring. It is possible that Bertha was staying with them. These folks knew William needed a housekeeper so they introduced them. Bertha took the job. In less than 3 weeks, William and Bertha were married. This was in 1873. When Bertha was asked how she could marry a stranger with three children, she replied, "When you have no home, no family, and are in a strange land where you cant speak the language, you really are alone." Here was a roof over her head. Her first Child, a son named Edward was born about 1874 but died when he was only two. Leander was born February 27, 1876; Clara Ida on October 23, 1878 and John August Henry on April 18, 1881. 

Maeltzer,  Ernestine "Tina" Pauline Holke   1/31/1841     1/12/1872
John William Maeltzer was born April 28, 1832, in Saxony, a prvince of Prussia. When William (as they called him) or Black William because of his dark complexion was about 16, his family decided to move to America. His parents names are not known. It is thought that his younger brother, about 14 was named Ignatious. Shortly before they left Germany, their mother became ill and died. The father died in New York, so the two brothers went with some of the other immigrants to Henry County Illinois, to what they called Brown's Grove. This was 8 1/2 miles southwest of Geneseo and 5 miles northeast of Osco. The brothers found work among farmers in the area. Most work was done by hand and ox teams were used to farm the land. The brothers worked hard and took work where it could be found. Because of that, the brothers drifted apart and never did find each oother again. Communications were poor at this time. Mail delivery was limited to rural areas and the brotherd could not write english. William stayed in Edford Twp. Henryc Co. IL. He married Ernestine Holke in 1865. Ernestine came to this country with five brothers, David, Charles (also known as Carl), and Julius who lived in the area and Fred and August who moved to Nebraska. After Ernestine and William were married, they either rented or share-farmed land from the Brown's Farm. It was land that had been cleared of timber and wolf and other wildlife inhabited  that aread nearby that was still wooded. They had four children; Augusta on August 25, 1867; Gustave on August 30, 1868; Emma on September 23, 1870 and a baby boy in 1872. Ernestine died in childbirth along with her baby son. They were buried in the same casket, the baby son in his mothers arms forever. They were buried in Morristown cemetery. No marker remains and records are incomplete. Bertha Waschke born October 5, 1852, came to Henry County from West Prussia in 1872. She was alone and had no money and needed work.

Geneseo Republic Mrs. Caroline Smith;  Caroline Smith, nee Emmert, died at the home of her daughter, Mrs. Carrie Smith, near Morristown, Sunday, Nov. 16, 1902, at one p.m.  She was born Oct. 13, 1824, at Weidenbach, Bavaria, Germany, and came to the United States with her parents at the age of nine years, living in Bedford county, Pennsylvania.   On the 19th day of April 1849, she was joined in holy wedlock with William Smith, who preceded her in death on the 20th day of last February.   This union was blessed with seven children, two of whom died in infancy.   In 1852 she came with her family to Henry county and has since that time lived in the same place.   She always enjoyed good health until two weeks after the death of her husband when her health began to fail.   About ten weeks ago she took to her bed, quietly and patiently awaiting the final summons.   “In peace she lived and in peace she died” applies aptly to the passing away of this pioneer among Henry County’s noble women.  Mrs. Smith was a member of the English Lutheran church of Morristown from the time of its organization, and at all times was an ardent and zealous worker in matters pertaining to the cause of religion.  Generous and kind hearted, her life was a blessing to all with whom she came in touch.  Devoted to her family and a kind neighbor and true friend, her death is mourned by all.   She is survived by five children, eleven grand-children and a host of friends.   The children surviving are:  Supervisor John F. Smith, of Edford Township; Mrs. Carrie Smith, and Mrs. Ellen Stevenson, of Western township; Mrs. Margaret Lawbaugh, of Michigan, and Emma, at home.   The funeral took place at the Lutheran church of Morristown Wednesday at 11 o’clock and was largely attended.   Rev. Th. Krueger, her pastor, preached the funeral sermon, using as a text the words, “She is not dead, but sleepeth.”  The interment was beside her late husband in the Morristown Cemetery.   Submitted by: Mary Margaret Jones   E-mail Address(es):  mjones6@comcast.net

William Smith
Mr. William Smith, a highly respected pioneer settler of Henry county died at his home near Morristown Wednesday Feb. 26, 1902.  Mr. Smith was a native of Prussia, Germany, and was born Nov. 10, 1822.   When nineteen years of age he came to America, going first to Cumberland, Md., where he worked for a number of years with his saved earnings bought a six-horse team, with which he entered into the work of hauling goods from Cumberland to Wheeling and Clarksburg, and also to other places in the interior where there was no public means of transportation.   His venture met with gratifying success, and in the short space of seventeen months he cleared $575.   The building of railroads throughout that section in 1850 put an end to his work and in that year accompanied by his brother, John H., he started for Illinois.   They came by the Allegheny, Ohio and Mississippi rivers and landed at Alton.   Arriving there they set out to cross the country on foot to select suitable location for a home.   They traveled until they came to Henry county and being pleased with the apparent outlook they invested their money in a fine tract of land which included 320 acres of prairie and 80 acres of timber.   It was situated in the township of Edford.   After farming this tract for about two years they divided their farm, each taking 160 acres of farm land and 40 acres of timber.   Through the wise management and frugal habits Mr. Smith added many tracts of land to this original investment and at the time of his death was the owner of almost one thousand acres of Henry county’s choicest acres, all located near and adjoining his original home farm.   Mr. Smith was married to Caroline Emmert in 1849 who survives him with five children, four daughters and one son.   The daughters are Mrs. Maggie Lawbaugh, of Calumet, Mich., Mrs. Carrie Smith and Mrs. Ella Stevenson, in Western township, Emma at home; the son, John lives near the home of his parents in Edford township.   A brother, Charles B., of this city, also survives him.   The deceased was an industrious and high minded citizen, a kind and accommodating neighbor, and was held in high esteem by all who knew him.   Funeral services will be held Friday, at 10 a.m. at his late home and at 11 a.m. at the Lutheran church at Morristown, of which he and his family are members.   Rev. Bollenger, of Lanark, Ill., will officiate.   The many friends throughout the county mourn with the family at the passing of a true and good friend and citizen.  Submitted by: Mary Margaret Jones   E-mail Address(es):  mjones6@comcast.net

WEIDLEIN, Andrew
Andrew Weidlein, lifelong respected citizen of Geneseo and the community southwest of here, passed away at his home on West North street Sunday forenoon following an extended period of ill health. Mr. Weidlein was in his eighty-first year and infirmities incident to his advanced age were the cause of death.  The wife preceded him in death three months to the day and her passing is believed to have hastened Mr. Weidlein's death.  Mr. Weidlein was highly esteemed man in this community which has been his home for about seventy years. His career in its entirety was one of integrity and uprightness, and influenced as was his life with high ideals, and of an excellent mind he was able to make his career one of paramount success, not only amassing a handsome estate, and providing always liberally for his family, yet withal not overlooking the more important matter of living the life of a Christian. In the active years of his career, while operating his farm in Osco township he was called upon to serve as supervisor and also served on the school board.  Born in Bedford, PA., April 16, 1840, he came west with his parents in 1851, the father and mother, John and Ella Nora Weidlein, locating on a farm in Edford township and finally settling on a farm in Osco township, near Morristown.  In 1864, Mr. Weidlein was united in marriage with Sarah Elizabeth Conrad, of Green River. Four years later he purchased a farm close to his father's farm and just outside of Morristown. Later he purchased additional land until he acquired several hundred acres, a great portion of which was used for pasturing cattle, Mr. Weidlein making his chief business that of a stock feeder, at which he amassed a fortune. He resided on the farm until 1895, during which time he served a term as supervisor and was also a member of the school board. On leaving the farm he purchased property in Geneseo, where he has since lived, although he continued in active management of his big farm practically up until a short time before his death.  He is survived by six brothers and six children, two children have preceded him in death. The children who survive are: W. E. Weidlein, of Augusta, Kan., J. C. Weidlein, of Webster City, Iowa, Mrs. Vina King, of Champaign, Ill., Mrs. Nora Schroeder, Mrs. Carrie Schroeder and Mrs. Laura Rastede, all of Geneseo. He is survived by twenty grandchildren and four great grandchildren.  Funeral services were held from the family home at 1:30 o'clock Tuesday, Rev. Frank S. Brewer, Mr. Weidlein's pastor, officiating. The burial was in the family lot in Morristown cemetery. Present at the funeral were all of the children, also two brothers  J. G. Weidlein, of Wellman, Iowa, and J. V. Weidlein, of Kansas City, Mo.

ARLEIGH THORNE WEIDLEIN
Arleigh Thorne, youngest child of Mr. and Mrs. J. C. Weidlein died at the home of his parents near Nira, Iowa, Friday, July 31, 1903, at about 6:30 p.m. The death of the little one resulted from drowning in a tub filled with water which was standing near the house. A cover was over the tub which in some manner was moved from its place by the child, it being found tipped from its place and the child in the water. The accident was discovered by Mildred, a ten year old sister less than five minutes after the mother had seen the child at play. For several hours the parents with doctors who had been called made every effort to restore life but without avail. The remains were brought back to this city by the sorrow stricken parents accompanied by their two remaining children Boyd and Mildred, and an uncle and aunt, Mr. and Mrs. J. G. Weidlein, of Wellman, Iowa, arriving here Saturday on the midnight train. funeral services were held at the Lutheran church in Morristown Sunday at 2:30 p.m., Rev. Theo Krueger officiating. The interment was in the church cemetery. Deep sympathy is felt here for the afflicted family in the sorrow which has so suddenly come over their household. Mr. and Mrs. Weidlein moved to Nira, Iowa about six months ago from Edford.

This is a long one and there was a missing piece where I have the unlines.   Hopefully this is all correct.   I have his name as Lewis in my database and am sure that is correct even though this article says Louis.   I just looked at the book that my grandfather made for my grandmother, who was a sister to him, and it says Lewis. Think it must have been from the Geneseo paper but I have not info on the back side of it so am thinking that I made a copy from the original that one of my great aunts had.

Arthur Weidlein

Death No Respector of Age, Claims Young Life
By constant inquiry friends were kept posted as to the condition of Arthur Weidlein and therefore it was a well known fact last Tuesday that he had suffered a relapse from which he might never recover.   It was just before the hour of six o’clock in the evening that his life became no more, and as our citizens were making their way home the sad word was passed from one to another and in less than a half hour the sad news was known generally throughout the city.   It was while attending the automobile show in Chicago just two weeks ago that Mr. Weidlein contracted a little cold which seemed to amount to no more than many others he had experienced but the fore part of last week pneumonia developed then again the forepart of this week the disease seemed to relax its hold and he rested easy for a few days with the encouraging word coming from the sick room that he was gaining.   Monday night he suffered a couple hemorrhages, typhoid fever developed and it was more than his weakened physical state could stand and after lingering through the day death relieved him of his earthly sufferings at just 5:50 p.m. Tuesday, March 2nd.
It was just a year and one day from the time Mr. Weidlein took possession of the City Meat business until his death.   During that year Mr. Weidlein became better acquainted and endeared himself to many of our citizens.   For while he had spent practically all his life in this vicinity he was never engaged in business and in the _____ met the people in a different  _____.   Mr. Weidlein was a member of the local order of Odd Fellows, which society had charge of the funeral services conducted at the Congregational church this Friday morning at ten o’clock.   Rev. Leonard A. Parr of the Congregational church officiating.   The remains were taken to the family cemetery at Morristown.Louis Arthur Weidlein was born in Morristown, Osco township, May 7th, 1872 and passed from this life at Geneseo March 2nd, 1909, being 36 years, 10 months and 5 days of age at the time of his death.   He spent his younger days at home on the farm and in the year 1897, the 20th of January he was united in marriage to Miss Gertrude Rogers at Morristown.   The twelve years of their wedded life has been spent in this vicinity, with the exceptions of three years they resided in Moline.   One daughter was born to the this union, Marie Dolores, who is now ten years old.  To morn his untimely taking away besides the wife and daughter of his own little family are his parents, Mr. and Mrs. Andrew Weidlein of this city, two brothers and four sisters, Elmer Weidlein of Morristown; Joseph Weidlein of Des Moines, Iowa; Mrs. Vina King of Champaign; Mrs. Nora Schroeder and Mrs. Carrie Schroeder, residing in the country near this city and Mrs. Laura Rastede of this city.  Death seemingly cruel at any time seems more so when it cuts down one in the prime of life, enjoying good health and with a bright future before them.   And while the many friends morn with the stricken family they extend heartfelt sympathy.      Mary Margaret E-mail Address(es):  mjones6@comcast.net

William Elmer Weidlein, who has won success as a farmer and stockman, was born February 27, 1865 , in Edford township, about a mile north of his present home which is on section 6, Osco township. His parents are Andrew and Sarah (Conrad) Weidlein, who are now living in retirement in Geneseo. About 1869 Mr. Weidlein sold the tract of land on which his son had been born and moved to Osco township, purchasing the farm on which William E. Weidlein is living today. For more than a quarter of a century he followed general agricultural pursuits, deriving an income which seemed to justify his relinquishing, in 1895, the heavier of life's cares and enjoying the rest from toil he so richly deserved.    As he was about 4 years old when his father came to Osco township, William E. Weidlein has passed almost his whole life upon the farm, from which he now obtains his comfortable income. He attended the district school of his locality, and, having completed the prescribed course, at the age of sixteen went to high school in Geneseo. After one year spent at that institution he entered Northwestern Normal , from which he was graduated with the class of 1886. Then he returned to the agricultural life which had not been interrupted seriously during the time he was a student for he took part in it in the summer months and at such other periods as were not given to the pursuit of his lessons. A few years later he embarked in the hardware business in Geneseo, but the venture proved rather unsuccessful than otherwise, and Mr. Weidlein sold his interests and stock, returning to his father's farm which he has tilled ever since. Its four hundred and eighty acres are sufficient in their extent to require a man's whole attention, if he is to derive from them the best returns for his labor.    At Clinton , Illinois , February 15, 1887, was celebrated the marriage of Mr. Weidlein and Miss Kittie Marlatt, of Clinton . She was born in Munson township, her parents being George H. and Jennie (Calhoun) Marlatt, but at the age of ten she went to live with a maternal uncle, Hon. W. F. Calhoun, at whose home she grew to womanhood. She received a good common school education and was attending the Northwestern Normal for voice culture when she met Mr. Weidlein. Of their union four children have been born. Max Andrew died in infancy. Eunice Grace, after completing the course of the county school attended Knox College , Galesburg , where she took both an English course and one in music. Vera Cleone is now a student in the Geneseo high school. Lyle Marlatt, the youngest died at the age of five.   Mr. Weidlein has steadfastly given his support to the republican party, but although he has played no small part in local affairs, he cannot be called an office seeker in any sense of the word. The capacities in which he has served the people are those of highway commissioner, assessor, and school director, and in every case he has proven himself to be a man who was ever ready to exert himself for the advancement of his people, who was just and honorable and endowed with good judgement. He is also well known in the fraternal circle of his township, for he is a member of Steward Lodge, A. F. & A. M., and Lodge, No. 172, I. O. O. F., while with Mrs. Weidlein he belongs to the Eastern Star, the Daughters of Rebekah, and the Royal Neighbors of Geneseo. In the meetings of these bodies he has proven that he is a man of social qualities as well of high business ability.   History of Henry County

John Weidlein,  a retired farmer of Edford Township, resident at Geneseo, came to Henry County in 1851. He was born Jan. 17, 1812, in Bavaria, Germany. While a resident of his native land he was subject to the legal regulations of the country, through which the government takes the control of all the sons born to the subjects of the emperor except that of their support, which remains the burden of the parents. Mr. Weidlein attended school until he was 14 years of age, and then worked on the farm until he was 16. He was then apprenticed to learn the trade of a blacksmith and he served two years. After working three years as a journeyman blacksmith, he was old enough to enter the army, in which he served three years. He then obtained a substitute to fill his place, and with his father’s family he sailed for the United States. The voyage consumed seven weeks, and the vessel discharged her passengers at Baltimore. Immediately after landing the family all went to Bedford Co., Pa. There the father bought a farm, and there the son made his home between two and a half years.      He then, in 1839, established his own household. He was married March 11, of that year to Eleonora C. Emmert. She was also a native of Bavaria. The newly married pair took possession of a rented farm in Bedford County, which they occupied seven years. At the end of that time Mr. Weidlein bought a farm in the same county. He retained its ownership until 1850, when he sold it, and in the next year came to Illinois. The journey was made over land by team to Wheeling, Va., where they took passage on a steamer and traveled on the rivers, which constitutes the river route between the East and the West. The water was low, and three weeks where passed on the trip. They landed at Rock Island, where the father bought a team, and came thence to Henry County. He entered land on section 9 of township 16, range 2 east, which is now the township of Osco. The proprietor built on the place a small structure, which served as a shelter for the family until he could press the work of improvement along to a point of profit; and after he had placed 150 acres under the plow, he proceeded to erect a house, to which the first building formed the kitchen. He drew the lumber and other materials used in the new houses from Moline. He also set out a considerable number of shade-trees. He was in fair circumstances on his arrival in Henry County, as he was the possessor of $1,000, all of which was the fruits of his industry and frugality on the farm he rented in Pennsylvania. When he was married he was not the owner of an unincumbered dollar. In 1856 he sold his farm in Osco Township and he then bought 3210 acres in Edford Township, for which he paid $650. There had been 40 acres broken and fenced and a small frame house had been begun. He at once proceeded to put the property in first-class condition for the accommodation of his family, as he had abundant means and facilities for doing, erecting excellent frame buildings, planting shade and fruit trees, and making all the improvements common to the best type of farms in the county.  He occupied the place until 1880, when he removed to Geneseo and bought the place he has since occupied there.     Eight of the children born to him and wife are still living. Andrew is a resident of Geneseo, and is the owner of a farm in Osco Township. Philip lives in Topeka, Kan. Lewis is a resident in Marion Co., Kan. Jacob lives in the county last named. This homestead in Edford Township is under the management of George J. Edward lives in Butler Co., Kan. Caroline is the wife of George Drehmer. Valentine is also a resident in Marion Co., Kan. The parents are members of the Lutheran Church.   Pg. 698    1885 Portrait & Biographical Album of Henry Co., Illinois.    Transcribed by Jan Roggy

MRS. CHRISTINA WHITELINE
Following a long extended illness Mrs. Christina Rapp Whiteline passed away at her home in this city, Friday, March 3, 1905, aged 61 years, one month and eleven days.  The illness of Mrs. Whiteline was one of long duration,fought with much pain and suffering, which she bore with Christian fortitude and patience.  Every attention and care possible was extended the deceased and best medical skills employed to stay the hand of death, but without avail.  Mrs. Whiteline was born in Portland township, Whiteside county, Jan. 15,1844.  She was married to Mr. John Whiteline Feb. 18, 1865, and until1881, resided with him on a farm in Osco township near Morristown.  Owing to his illness the family then moved to Moline where the husband passed away in the following year.  Mrs. Whiteline with her children then moved to this city which has since been her home.  Ten children were born to Mrs. and Mrs. Whiteline of whom four died in infancy and a son William F. died at the age twenty-six years.  Those remaining to mourn the passing of their mother are, Mrs. Hattie Bubeck, of Clarioa, Iowa, Mrs. Rose, Agnes and Mrs. Florence Schroeder, of Geneseo, Miss Bessie and Miss Alama at home.  Mrs. Whiteline from early age until coming to Geneseo was a member of the Lutheran church transferring her membership to the Congregational church here.  Deep sympathy is felt for the sorrowing daughters called to mourn the passing of a noble and kindhearted mother.  The funeral service was conducted at the home Sunday at 1 p.m. by Rev.

s/o John and Elanora Emmert Weidlein
Geneseo Republic  Oct. 7, 1892   Mr. John J. Weidlein, a former  resident of this county and a gentlemen widely known and highly respected, died at Moline Thursday, Sept. 29th.  From the Moline Republican we take the following obituary mentioned;  The deceased came to Stewartville last March from near Morristown, Henry County, mainly in order to place himself under the care of the best medical experts.  A little over a year ago, then apparently a very healthy man, the owner of a large stock farm, and prosperous, he suddenly began to be troubled with lame back, and from that time on he became gradually worse, and nearly ever since he came to Stewartville he has been confined close at home.    The case has attracted wide attention among the medical profession.  Last August his family physician, Dr. J. W. Morgan, gave a clinical lecture before the Iowa and Illinois Medical Association in Davenport, at which time over thirty physicians examined the patient, and most of them declared that they had never seen such a case, the presence of the large tumor or tumors being felt on both the rear and font of the body.  They predicted then that it would be a miracle if he survived longer than Oct. 1.  A few weeks ago an operation was performed by Drs Morgan and Kerns, removing one of the kidneys that had been enveloped in the enormous growth.   Mr. Weidlein was born in Shellsburg PA., 56 years age on the 4th of last March.  He came to Henry County, ILL., in 1859, settling at Osco, and afterward moving to Morristown.  He was married 27 years ago, February 28th last at Spring Hill, Whiteside County, to Miss Christena Rapp, who survives, together with six children---Mrs. M. Bubeck and Mrs. Rose S. Ague, in Henry County; William F.,  Florence B., Bessie M. and Emma K., at home.  The deceased was a kind hearted man and was esteemed by all who knew him.  The funeral takes place on Saturday.  A short service will be held at the residence at 8 a.m. by Rev. Edwards, after which the remains will be taken to Morristown by carriage, and there at noon a funeral service will be held by Rev.Atkins in the Lutheran church, of which he was a prominent member, after which the interment will be made.   (He is buried at Evergreen Cemetery aka Morristown Cemetery)

Wm. Yager, an old resident of Osco township, died at his home two miles northeast of Osco at 2 p.m. Monday, June 13th, in the 85th year of his age.  William Yager died at his home in Osco Monday, June 13th., 1892, from blood poisoning following gangrene, at the age of 83 years, 6 months, and 13 days.  Deceased was a native of Germany.  He emigrated to America in 1858 and settled in Edford.  In the spring of 1865 he moved with his family to the home in Osco where he ended his days.  He leaves a beloved wife and two children--Mrs. Caroline Stenzel, of Osco, and Fred Yager, of Geneseo--to mourn his death.  Mr. Yager was a man of excellent health and preservation for one of his years till shortly before his death.  He was continued to his bed but twelve days.  That was a period of great suffering to him, but he bore his affliction patiently.  His wife and children and Mr. Crosslay were at his bedside when he breathed his last and all that mortals could do was done for him in his last hours.  Funeral services were conducted at his late home Wednesday last by Rev. Mr. Houck, of Hickory Grove, and loving hands laid him to rest in the Morristown cemetery.
