Obituary of JOHN G. HIRDLER
John G. Hirdler was born in Striegan, Germany, October 11, 1830. He immigrated to America in
1881 and settled at Millersburg, Minn. In 1887 he moved to Kansas where he lived to the time of his death at his home in Garfield October 15, 1907.

He was united in marriage to Ernstina Otelia Zier at Reichenbach, Germany, who after more than fifty-three years of his companionship is left to finish the journey of life alone.

Of the thirteen children who were born in their home, three are living, two daughters and a son.

The subject of this sketch was a humble follower of Christ. He had been reared in the Lutheran church, but joined the United Brethren after coming to America.

The funeral services were conducted at the family residence at two o’clock on Wednesday afternoon Oct. 16th by Rev. J. L. Rutan.
