-There are many in Oconee and
elsewhere in this State who will be
grieved to learn of the death of A.
F. L. Br?cke, which occurred at his
home near Walhalla on Dec. 16th.
He was a well known citizen of this
section and wherever he was known
ho was respected and honored for hip
real worth. August Frederlok Br?cke
was born 'Feb. 11th, 1830, at Bruns
wick, Germany, and came to* America
in 1854. He Waa married to Miss
Elizabeth Franz in 1876 and had
lived in the Ebenezer section on his
farm, the quiet life of a tiller ot the
soil, a work which he successfully
did. He was of a modest and kindly
nature, and had the full confidence
and high respect of his neighbors.
He was a life-long member of tho
Lutheran church, and 'had been a
member of St. John's Lutheran
church of Walhalla since coming to
this section. He foll asleep,, from the
infirmities of age, on Dec. 16, 1921?
and his remains were buried in the
family burying ground on his farm
on the following day at 4.30 p. m. It
was his request that he be laid to
rest near his home rather than in
the church cemetery. The service
was conducted by his pastor, Rev. W.
B. Aull. Besides his wife he leaves
Obree daughters, Misses Wilhelmina,
Jahannan and Bertha. Two of them
conduct the farm successfully, and
the youngest is a very efficient teach
er in the Ebenezer school. Mr.
Br?cke. was one of Oconee's most
substantial citizens, and his passing
away will be <felt by many in various
sections' of our county. He was one
among tho last of the older German
