Johann Anton Siebels
October 15, 1832–March 1, 1910
John A. Siebels, an old and respected citizen of Wayne township, died, last Thursday, the 3rd inst., after an illness of only two days of bronchial pneumonia, complicated by what was evidently a stroke of paralysis. Mr. Siebels celebrated his golden wedding on the 9th of February, at which time he was in good spirits and reasonably well, and it was little thought at that time that within the month he would have passed to his reward.
Mr. Siebels was born at Middels, Hanover, Germany, October 15, 1832. He came to the United States in 1872, and went directly to Wayne township, where he lived during the remainder of his life. He was married on the 9th of February, 1860, twelve years before his removal to the United States, to Miss Altien Ricklefs, who survives. He is survived by the following named children: Carl W. Siebels, Anna E. Gerdes, Ricklef A. Siebels, Mrs. Angie M. Lamburtes, Mrs. Kate Lamburtes and John H. Siebels.
The funeral services were held at the German Lutheran church of Wayne township, last Sunday, and were largely attended. The funeral services were conducted by Rev. C. Mardorf.
