Henry Hoesley, one of the oldest pioneers of Carroll County, died at Carroll last Monday evening. Old age was the principal cause of death. Henry Hoesley was born in Switzerland in the year 1813 and came to America in 1864 and settled for a few years in Wisconsin and about the year 1875 moved with his two sons Peter and Henry Jr., and settled on the farm 5 miles northeast of Manning where he resided for over 18 years, when his wife died, since when he has been a lonely old man. He has been a good, kind father. He leaves two sons, Peter Hoesley of Boone and Henry Hoesley, Jr., of Monroe, Wisconsin; and one daughter, Mrs. L. Legler of Auburn, Iowa. He also leaves a number of grandchildren and great-grandchildren to mourn his loss.
The remains were brought to Manning Wednesday afternoon on the C. & N. W. where it was met by a large number of old friends and relatives and taken to the Manning Cemetery where he was buried by the side of his wife. Rev. Ansorge of the German Lutheran Church officiating. His son Peter Hoesley of Boone and grandson Frank Hoesley of Neola, and also supervisor Trowbridge of Carroll were in attendance at the funeral.
