William Pahl was born in Prussia, April 2nd, 1826 and grew to manhood and was married there to Augusta Shatz. He and his family immigrated to the United States, settling in Wisconsin, where he made his home until 1890 when he moved to Ingham, Nebr., and has since made his home with his daughter, Mrs. Wm. LaRue. His wife preceded him to the grave in the year 1879. He was the father of nine children, three of whom are living, Frank Pahl of Cambridge, Nebr., Wm. Pahl of Wisconsin and Arnestenia LaRue of Ingham.

He leaves 17 grand children and 43 great grandchildren. He was a member of the Lutheran Church since he was 14 years of age. He took out his naturalization papers in 1869 and has lived a true American Citizen and was honored and respected by his many friends and acquaintances. He died at the home of his daughter, Mrs. LaRue, after a brief illness. Had divine providence permitted him to have lived until April 2, 1921, he would have reached the age 95 years. He passed over the river on Feb. 12, 1921, at the age of 94 years, 10 months and 10 days.

The Lord gave and the Lord hath taken away.
