Former Resident Dies at Saginaw
Mrs. A. E. Engelhuber, 88, Local Pioneer, Passes

Mrs. Amelia E. Engelhuber, 88, a former pioneer resident of Manistee, passed away at 8 o'clock Christmas eve at the home of a daughter, Mrs. Charles Schodel, at Saginaw.  Death was caused by a stroke of paralysis which she suffered earlier in the day.

Mrs. Engelhuber came to Manistee when a young woman and lived here through the early lumbering days of the city.  She resided here until 10 years ago, when, following the death of her husband, she went to live with Mrs. Schodel.  Mrs. Engelhuber experienced the Great Fire which destroyed Manistee in 1871.  During her residence here she made her home on Lincoln Street.

Four sons and three daughters survive.  Their names are Otto Engelhuber of Detroit; Edward, Henry and George of Milwaukee, Mrs. Joseph Both of Hastings, Mrs Schodel, Saginaw, and Mrs John Willars, Cypress and Fifth streets, this city.  She leaves 14 grandchildren and three great grandchildren.  

The funeral will be held from the Lundquist Funeral Home here tomorrow afternoon at 2:30, rev. J. H. Todt officiating.

Burial will be in Oak Grove cemetery.

Amelia Fredrich Engelhuber is the daughter of Christoph Fredrich and Susanna Koenig, my maternal second great grandparents, making her my Great Grand Aunt.
