Elkader Register, Thur., 04 July 1889.
Died - At his home in Garnavillo township, on Thursday, June 27th, 1889, Henry J. Ihde, aged 28 years, 8 months. Although Mr. Ihde's death has long been expected, still the sad event came so suddenly as to overwhelm his family in unconsolable grief. Mr. Ihde was a man who a few years ago was teeming with health and strength, and seemed to laugh at disease. He was just blooming into the full vigor of manhood and joined his hopes with a winsome and happy wife with whom he began life's toilsome voyage under the most promising auspices, when the dread destroyer consumption marked him for an early grave. Although he was treated by the best medical skill, and received all the attention that a loving wife and anxious parents and friends could furnish, still he gradually sank under the weight of the disease, and death finally ended his sufferings. His remains were buried at the Garnavillo cemetery on Saturday, followed by an immense concourse of sorrowing friends. Our most sincere sympathies are with the afflicted widow and parents. May he rest in peace.
