JOSEPH SCHONBORN was born in Frankfort, Germany, Aug. 3, 1869. He came
to this country when twenty-three years of age, remaining in New York for a
time. He afterward resided in Indiana when he attended school at Valparaiso
and in later years he came to Iowa.
In 1899 he was married to SUSIE M. BEERS, who passed to her Eternal Home
April 5, 1916. Five children remain to mourn his loss - HULDAH, HERMAN,
ELIZABETH, JOE and JOHN.
For twelve years MR. SCHONBORN was a telegrapher. Since 1916, he has
been in the coal and grain business in West Branch. He was an industrious
man, strictly honest in all business transactions and always a kind father
Near three o'clock on the morning of Feb 21, he quietly passed away, to
the Beyond, at his home in West Branch.
The funeral service was held in the Friends church. The sermon was
preached by the pastor, and the text used was, "A Father to the Fatherless
God in His Holy Habitation." The service was very largely attended, the
house being filled.
The burial was in West Branch Cemetery.
