BACHELoTSlER NEAR LEDYARD FOR 32 YEARS IS DEAD Lcdyard, Feb. 27—-Henry Goeke, for 32 years a resident of Hebron township, died last Thursday after a long illness. Funeral aorvicen were held Sunday afternoon at the home and at the Reformed church the Rev. A. A. Depping officiating, and burial was made in the 'Ledyard cemetery. Mr. Goeke was born January 7, 1865, at Brosen, Germany, and spent his youth there attending the public schools and helping on his parents' farm. He was baptized as a child in the Reformed church and was confirmed in 1879. _ In March, 1894, he came to America with ihis brother Simon, making his borne for some time with friends and relatives at Hubbard, in Hardin county. In 1902, be and his brother came to northern Iowa in search of cheaper land, and finally settled down four miles east of Ledyard on the farm which has been their home ever since. _ Mr._Gocke never married, making bis home with bis H)rother Simon and family. Mr. Goeke as a pioneer of this community, did his part in the development of the North Kossutli swamps and prairies, and he and bis brother owned more than a section of fine farm land. Mr. Goeke enjoyed 'good health till 1931, when his health began to fail, and his more serious illness dates back to last October. During tbe .last two months he was confined to his bed and armchair.
