Frederick Keidel, aged seventy-three years, passed away April 21,
1912, at the home of his daughter, Mrs. A. E. Moulton,

wife have lived for nearly five years, the cause of

Frederick Keidel, who was born February 24, 1839, in
Wurtemburg Province, Germany, was the youngest of a family
of eight children, all of whom had passed on before
him. His father died when he was' two years old,
and when he was seventeen he and his mother and one
brother came to America, one sister and a brother having preceded
them here. He located near Dubuque, Iowa, where he
continued to live till he enlisted in Co. A. 3d Iowa
infantry in 1861, and served till the close US the war.
Not long before he enlisted, he was converted and joined the
Methodist Episcopal church, of which he
continued a faithful member to the last.
Always confident and trusting, his Christian fortitude and
strong faith were beautiful to witness as life neared its close. A
constant sufferer for years, he is now at rest.
The funeral was held from the home of his daughter, Mirs. A.
E. Moulton. The pastor being out of town, Dist. Supt. McDade, had
charge of the funeral service, except at the grave, where the
service was in charge of the local G. A. R. Post.
