Funeral services were Tuesday at Immanuel Lutheran Church for William Meiburg, for the past 15 years, a resident of Rock Rapids, who died at his home here Saturday. Rev. E.H. Mueller, pastor of the Rock Rapids church, was in charge of the services, after which the remains were taken to Alvord for interment.
William Meiburg was born September 3, 1846 at Worden, Holstein, Germany. At the age of 19 years, he came to America with his parents, Johan Eric Meiburg and Wilhemina (Mueller) Meiburg, and settled at Davenport, IA. After staying there a number of years he moved to Denison in Crawford county. There he was united in marriage to Miss Anna Onnen, also of Denison. Two children were born to this union. From Denison, they moved to ward, SD, where they farmed for 10 years, after which they returned to Iowa, and settled on a farm near Alvord. They retired from farm life in 1909. Since 1914 they have made their home in Rock Rapids.
In 1918 Mr Meiburg had a very delicate operation, which seriously affected his health. The last 8 years he has been an invalid. He was confined to bed 3 weeks, passing away Saturday morning, September 28, at the age of 83 years and 25 days. He is survived by his wife and his children, Henry Meiburg of near Alvord, and Mrs. Minnie Kroeger at Ward, SD, and 15 grandchildren and other relatives.
