Born in Germany

From book Diggin' Up Bones by Betty Barnes:
August Hahn Sr, was born December 21, 1876, in Adeenhart, Germany, and departed this life December 28, 1955, at the age of 79 years and seven days. He left Germany at the age of 15 and settled near Peoria, Ill. While living in Illinois he was united in marriage to Caroline Catherine Lay, June 11, 1898. To this union four children were born.
He later moved to Reno County, Kansas, where he lived for several years. In September of 1905, Mr Hahn, with his wife and three eldest children, came to Kearny County, Kansas, where they settled on a homestead. The youngest daughter, Violet, was born on the homestead where Mr Hahn resided until a few weeks before his death.
One son, Samuel, two brothers and one sister preceded him in death.
When a young man he was baptized in the Lutheran faith. He was always interested in Sunday School and church and attended regularly at Immanuel Lutheran Church until Mrs Hahn's health failed.
Mr Hahn was a quiet, unassuming man, devoted to his children and grandchildren. He was a good neighbor, ever ready to help when one was in need.
Mr and Mrs Hahn celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary June 11, 1948.
Mr Hahn enjoyed fair health for his age until a few months ago when his health began to fail. His condition grew steadily worse until Wednesday afternoon when death came.
In the passing of Mr Hahn, Fairview has lost one of its early pioneer settlers.
He leaves to mourn his passing, his invalid wife, who in her feeble condition, is not aware of her husbands death; one son, August, Jr, of Leoti; two daughters, Mrs Lillie Burns of Nice, California, and Mrs Violet Henry of Sacramento, California; two sisters in Illinois; 23 granchildren; 22 great grandchildren; and a host of other relatives and friends.
Services were held at the Fairview Church, Sunday afternoon, January 1, 1955 Rev. Wilty was in charge. A quartet consisting of Mr. and Mrs. Duard Hill, Mrs Horace Downs and Vern Miles with Mrs Miles at the piano furnished the music. Pallbearers were A E and G J Anderson, G H Hylton, Tobe Koehn, Howard Clevenger and Alvin Bishop.
Interment was in the Fairview Cemetery.
