Ringgold Record, 1883

ANOTHER CITIZEN GONE

Death of Conrad HUCKE - Coroner's Verdict - Whiskey's Work.

Civil War Flags.jpg Our citizens were startled last Tuesday morning by the report, that Conrad HUCKE had died suddenly Monday night. Inquiry proved the report to be only too true. His death was undoubtedly caused by the long and continued use of intoxicating drink. He had not been drinking for some time, but several weeks ago he again commenced and continued until last Saturday, when he swore off. His constitution, however, had been totally destroyed and on Monday night he fell a victim of strong drink. He was 45 years of age and has lived here for many years. During the late rebellion [Civil War] he served in the U.S. Signal corps. His funeral occurred yesterday, from the M. E. church at this place, and was largely attended. [Interment was made at Rose Hill Cemetery, Mount Ayr, Ringgold County, Iowa.] Mr. HUCKE leaves a wife and seven children to mourn his death. Below we give the verdict of the coroner's jury, which in itself tells the sad story.

STATE OF IOWA, Ringgold County. }

An inquisition holden at Mt. Ayr, in Ringgold county, Iowa, on the 20th day of March, A.D. 1883, before S. BAILEY, Coroner of said county, upon the body of Conrad HUCKE, there lying dead, by the jurors, whose names are hereto subscribed, the said jurors upon their oath do say that the said Conrad HUCKE came to his death from acute congestion of the lunges, supervening on delirium tremens.
