Herman Koning Death
Again another of our veterans has left us. On Thursday morning the old man H. Koning, well known as one of our oldest citizens, died at the Etna House in the ripe old age of 75 years. His disease was dropsy. The deceased was one of the old soldiers of the Belgium Revolution and participated in part of the engagements of that well-known "Ten Days" campaign. He came to this country in 1850, and settled here at once, pursuing his trade as mason. He lost his helpmate in 1870, and was a wanderer among his children and strangers ever since.
(Buried in Pilgrim Home Cemetery.)
