KALLENBACH, JOHN - Miller County, Missouri | JOHN KALLENBACH - Missouri Gravestone Photos


Tuscumbia Cemetery
Miller County,

Dec. 10, 1845 Germany
Dec. 29, 1918

John Kallenbach was born in Saxony, Germany on the 10th day of December 1844; he departed this life, surrounded by his family and relatives, at his home on the Saline Creek near Tuscumbia, on the 29th day of December, 1918, aged 74 years and 19 days. The subject of this sketch emigrated to the United States in his early youth and soon thereafter became a naturalized citizen of the country. Not long after his arrival, he enlisted in the Union Army and served his adopted country well and faithfully throughout that long struggle, a private in Co. G. 10th Regiment of Missouri Volunteer Cavalry.

Mr. Kallenbach was united in marriage to Miss Christina Artz on November 12, 1876. Of this union four children were born, Roland O. Kallenbach, now of Hession, Kans., Oliver R. and Oscar E. Kallenbach, both of Miller County, and Bertha a daughter who died in infancy. His first wife departed this life January 1892.

On August 15, 1895, he was united in marriage with Minnie A. Nixdorf, a daughter of the late Dr. A.P. Nixdorf, one of the pioneer physicians of Miller County and to this union nine children were born; Miss Stella, now one of Miller County's school teachers, John Frederick, Edison C., Raymond, Ruth, Nellie, Henry, Ruby and Hazel, all of whom, together with the widow, survive.

Mr. Kallenbach became a member of the Christian Church many years ago and remained a consistent member thereof until his death. He was also a member of the Grand Army of the Republic.

Soon after the Civil War Mr. Kallenbach established a home in Tuscumbia, and engaged in the blacksmith and wagon making business. By his rugged honesty, fair dealing and industry he accumulated considerable property; the last twenty years of his life was passed on his farm a few miles north of Tuscumbia. He was a man whose word was his bond, and Miller County has lost another one of her pioneer citizens; of a quiet, unassuming nature, always ready to accommodate a friend whenever possible, he is numbered among the good citizens of our community, and his absence will long be felt by his neighbors and friends with whom he came in contact.

His remains were laid to rest in the cemetery on the hill, amidst his sorrowing relatives and friends, there to await the Resurrection Morn.
