Johan Gottlieb Andre
 
One of the oldest residents of our county; John Gottlieb Andre, closed his eyes in death Saturday, May 1, 1909, at the ripe old age of 93 years, after waiting patiently for years to be relieved from all eartly sufferings. Deceased was born in the province of Posen, Prussia, where he was married to Miss Caroline Langholff, who preceeded him in death in November 1908. Four sons and two daughters were born to them, of whom one son and one daughter have died. In 1849 they came to this country and settled on a farm in the town of Hebron. Later they resided in Fort Atkinson and for a few years also at Golden Lake. Six years ago they were compelled to seek shelter at the county house as sickness and the infirmities of old age made it impossible for them to care for themselves.
Three sons, one daughter and other relatives survive. The funeral services were held last Wednesday and the reamins interred in the Evergreen Cemetery at Fort Atkinson. May he after life's hard and bitter struggle rest in peace.
