Frenzel died on Saturday morning, Feb. 28th, at 3:30, after an operation performed to relieve gall stones. Mr. Frenzel was born on March 23rd 1831, at Barnddorf, Germany, and was 71 years, 11 months and 23 days old at the time of his death. In 1840 he came to Missouri with his parents and lived there with them until he was 24 years old. In 1864 he came to Sibley county, Minn., and first settled on what is now the Meffert farm, remaining there until 1872 when he purchased the place just on the edge of this village where he resided until his death. He was thrifty and accumulated a nice bit of property. For the past 24 years he has been bothered with a sore leg which made his last years not as pleasant as they otherwise would have been. His last illness lasted only ten days. The operation was performed on Thursday night and he died about 30 hours later. Mr. Frenzel was married when a young man to Johanna Dorotha Sophia Hillemann, sister of Chas Hillemann, Sr., and six children were born to the union, only two of whom are now living, viz: Edward Frenzel and Mrs. John Meyer, Jr. both of Arlington township. The wife and mother died August 24, 1878. Funeral services were held Monday at 1 p.m. from the house and the remains were interred in the Lutheran cemetery west of town. Rev. Robert officiated.
