      From THE COLUMBUS (NE.) TELEGRAM, February 12, 1937, pg. 4, col. 3-

      Edward Lueschen, 69, prominent Platte county farmer and former supervisor, who resided on a farm 14 miles north of Columbus for nearly 60 years, passed away at 7:30 a.m. today at the University hospital in Omaha, following an illness of the last few weeks duration.

      Shortly before the holiday season, his health began to fail, and recently he had been taking treatment for a bladder infection. He was taken to Omaha a week ago yesterday and entered the hospital there for medical treatment, but his strength continued to fail gradually until death came this morning.

      Born on Oct. 31, 1867, in Mayville, Wis., he came to Nebraska with his parents when a boy, and they settled on the farm where he was making his home at the time of his death. He grew to manhood there, and on June 27, 1893, he was united in marriage to Miss Emma Goetz, his childhood sweetheart, at St. Paul's Lutheran church near their families' homes.

      He took his bride to his parental home, and throughout his entire life he resided on this same farm. During that period of years he became widely known, and was always an esteemed and highly respected resident of that community.

      At the death, in 1916, of his father-in-law, John Goetz who was serving as a Platte county supervisor at that time, he was appointed to fill the unexpired term. At the next election, he became republican candidate for the office, and was elected to the office for four successive terms--the term being a two-year period at that time. He was a member of the board when the present court house was erected.

      He was a devout member of St. Paul's Lutheran church, and the services will be there, although the time has not been arranged. Funeral arrangements will be announced in tomorrow's Telegram.?

      Mr. Lueschen is survived by his wife; three daughters, Mrs. William Loseke, of Creston, and Mrs. Otto Loseke, and Mrs. Wesley Stevens, of Leigh; one son, Edgar, residing on the home farm; two brothers, Dr. A.G. Lueschen, of Los Angeles, and Adolph Lueschen, of Creston, and 17 grandchildren. Two sons, Oswold Lueschen, who died July 21, 1936 in Denver, and Henry, who died in infancy, preceded him in death.

      Herbert Ernst, of the Gass Funeral home, drove to Omaha this morning to bring the body here, and it will be at the funeral home until the time of the services has been determined. [ColfaxDeutschlandPlatte.FBK.FTW]
