John Joseph Albinger
March 18, 1834–January 4, 1917
John Joseph Albinger died, at the residence of his daughter, Mrs. J. N. Kiburz, in Scotch Grove Township, last Thursday, January 4th. Funeral services were conducted at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Kiburz, last Saturday, and interment was made at Oakwood cemetery. Rev. J. H. Barr, pastor of the Methodist Episcopal church, had charge of the services. Mr. Albinger had made his home in Monticello the last fifty years, and not until two months ago did he leave his old home and go to live with his daughter. Although he was advanced in years, he was remarkably agile. He was a member of the order of the I.O.O.F. and a veteran of the civil war, having served in company K of the 34th Regiment of the Iowa Volunteers. He was born in Germany, March 18, 1834, and came to America when but a small boy. He was united in marriage to Miss Caroline Rasele, in 1863. To this union were born four children, only one of whom is living. There are also three grandchildren surviving.
