Leonard Engelhuber, aged 69 years, died at 11 o'clock last night on the county road of erysipelas.  The funeral services will be held from the German Lutheran church on Fourth street Sunday afternoon.  He is survived by seven children:  Mrs. John Willers, Mrs. Emil Schlegelmilch, Miss Margaret, Otto, Henry, Gus and Edward Engelhuber.  Deceased came to Manistee from Germany in 1870.

Leonard Engelhuber was my great grand aunt's husband.  He married Amalia Fredrich, daughter of Christoph Fredrich and Susanna Koenig, my maternal second great grandparents.  Amalia was still living at the time and I found it interesting that she wasn't included as a survivor.
