Frederick Keidel, aged seventy-three years, passed away April 21, 1912, at the home of his daughter, Mrs. A. E. Moulton,   1004   Poplar St., Atlantic, Iowa, with whom he and his wife have lived for nearly five years, the cause   of   his death being heart  trouble   and tuberculosis.

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.
