In researching my Lawrence County Ohio German ancestors I came across an obituary for Friedrich Hauptreif in the 4 March 1891 edition of Der Irontoner Post, a German language newspaper for Ironton, Ohio. I did not make a copy but my abstract is as follows:

4 März 1891: page three, third column

Friedrich Hauptreif, died Sunday night. Born 29 Januar 1841, Udenhausen, Kurfürstenthum Hessen (Electorate of Hesse).

Emigrated to America in 1865.

A member of the Reformed Church.

Pfarrer (Pastor) Keller to officiate.

The obit is in German Gothic script. It is on Ohio Historical Society microfilm roll 42267. It is mislabeled as the "Íronton Post." It is followed on the film by a brief run of Wachter am Ohio, another Ironton German language newspaper.

Both of these newspapers ran for much longer than what is preserved on this microfilm. If we could discover additional editions, there would be a gold mine of information.

My ancestors were also members of the Ironton German Reformed Church, but unfortunately the records for that church seem to have perished. I haven't completely given up hope yet.

Please let me know if I can be of further assistance.
