      After suffering for two weeks with complications incident to her advanced age, Mrs. Anna Schnitken Grotelueschen passed away at her home six miles north of Richland where she had resided for more than forty-seven years.

Grotelueschen in Germany and together they came to America in 1858, locating first in Wisconsin. After residing there for eleven years they came to Nebraska in March, 1869, settling on a homestead six miles north of Richland. They were numbered among the early settlers of that community.
