Master Fred ZENTNER, son of Isiah and Mary Zentner, died at the home of his parents on Jordan Prairie Sept. 20, 1893, aged fourteen years, three months and nine days.  When three or four years of age he went to live with his grandparents, Mr. And Mrs. Nathaniel Stephenson, near the Gap church, and remained with them the most of the time until his last illness.  The deceased was ill but a few days and his sudden death was a hard blow to his parents and brothers and especially to the grandparents.  It was pathetic to hear these aged people speak of their loneliness.  The funeral services were conducted by Rev. C.W. Robinson, the sermon being preached in the Gap church Thursday, Sept. 21, to a large audience of neighbors and friends.  The text was from Ex. 1:6 “and Joseph died and all his brethren and all that generation”.  It was shown that the history of all must close with a similar sentence.  That the time of death was unknown, and while the old must die, the young may die, and that this should influence us to ‘work the work of him that sent me while it is day” as “the night cometh when no man can work”.  The remains were interred in the Gap church cemetery.  We extend our sympathies to the bereaved friends.

Pleasant on Thursday, Sept. 13, 1900 aged 15 years, 6 months and 27 days.  Louie was sick only four days with that dread disease, appendicitis.  He rapidly grew worse from the start and Thursday Drs. Roberts, Nazum and Hitchcock operated on him.  Little hope was entertained that the operation would save him but it was the only hope there was.  He passed away about an hour after the operation.  The funeral was held at the Baptist Church in this city Saturday, conducted by Rev. S.J. Erffmeyer of New Glarus and the pastor, Rev. H.B. Gibbons and the remains interred in the Albany cemetery.  Deceased was an only son, and leaves his parents and one sister, Mrs. William Helms Jr., of this city, besides many other relatives to mourn their loss.
