After a short illness of about one week, Dietrich Ellinghausen, one of Greendale's esteemed citizens, passed away at his home on Ridge avenue, Thursday morning, October 31. He had been in failing health for the past year, but during this time he was always active and few were aware that his health was slowly declining. A short time previous to his death he contracted a cold which developed into pneumonia.
Mr. Ellinghausen was born in Ripley county Sept. 6, 1853. His parents were Henry and Sophia Schroer Ellinghausen. When still young he came with his parents to Dearborn county and following his marriage he lived on a farm in Lawrenceburg township until his removal to Lawrenceburg about seventeen years ago, when he retired from farming. After coming to this city Mr. and Mrs. Ellinghausen lived for two years in Newtown and then located in Greendale, where they resided for the past fifteen years.
September 20, 1877, Mr. Ellinghausen was united in marriage with Miss Eliza Reinking at Bellair church. Eight children were born to this union, five sons and three daughters.
The deceased was a man of high standing in his community, noted for his integrity, honesty, and industry. The interests of his family were always nearest and dearest to him and one of the cherished aims of his life was that his children should have a good education. It gave him a great deal of satisfaction in his later years to see this wish fulfilled. He was a member of St. John's Lutheran church of Bellair for half a century.
Surviving are his widow, who at this writing lies critically ill at her home with pneumonia, four sons, Henry, who resides on the old home place, John and Ed of Oklahoma, William of Saskatchewan, Canada; three daughters, Mrs. Carl Eberhart of Dayton, O., Mrs. Henry Andrews of Trivoli, Ill., Mrs. Arthur Koetkemeyer of this city; thirteen grandchildren, one brother, Henry Ellinghausen of Kyle, two sisters, Mrs. August Leffler of Wright's Corner, Mrs. Margaret Johnson of near Hogan Hill, other relatives and a wide circle of friends and acquaintances.
