TOBIASSEN—At his residence in Wayne township, May 21, 1888, Mr. M. R. Tobiassen, aged 77 years, one month and 11 days.
Mr. Tobiassen was born at Marx, Hanover, Germany. He did not come to America until 1871, when he followed his sons who reside in this vicinity. Had he lived, he and his wife who survives him would have celebrated their golden wedding the last of this month. Mr. Tobiassen was the father of eight children, four boys and four girls, all married and residing near here. He had been ailing since winter, but the immediate cause of his death was gangreen. The funeral took place yesterday, the services being conducted by Rev. C. Mardorf, pastor of the German Lutheran church, of which Mr. Tobiassen was a consistent member.
