Name: William Frederidk NEBOLD
Newspaper: Schuyler County Herald
Date: 1907
Submitter: Michelle Bley

Third son of Henry and Mary Nebold, was born Oct. 9, 1865, in Beardstown, Ill., and died Feb. 27, 1907, at the Presbyterian hospital, Chicago, Ill. When he was 3 years of age his parents moved to a farm six miles east of his birth place, where he remained until the year 1900, when he removed to Schuyler County, Ill.

On May 19, 1896, he was united in marriage with Elizabeth V. Rahn, daughter of John and Susan Rahn, of Arenzville, Ill. God has blessed this union by bringing into their home four bright children, William Kenneth, Paul H., Robert H., and Mary M., all of whom are living. Besides his wife and children he leaves to mourn his death his aged mother, and the brothers and sisters, Henry Nebold and Mrs. Henry Drawve, of Stonington, Ill., Charles Nebold, of Jacksonville, Ill., Mrs. Parker Hammer and Mrs. Henry Reeves, of Beardstown, Ill. Although not a member of any church he was brought up in the Lutheran faith.

Mr. Nebold was a devoted husband and father, a lover of his home and family. Since he has made his home in Schuyler county he has added to his already large circle of friends and acquaintances. As a farmer he was excelled by none, as a business man his word was like his bond. The world is loser when such men are taken away. He will be remembered as one of God's noblemen.

The funeral was held at his home near Ray, at 9 o'clock Saturday morning, March 2, 1907. Also short services were held at the cemetery in Beardstown, where he was buried.
