Obituary Record. Following a lin
gering Illness of many months' dura
tion, John Emeda, aged 23 years, died
at the home, 108 Rock Island street
Death was caused by tuberculosis. The
man's death is made doubly sad to
the pitiful remnant of the family by
the loss of his infant daughter, who
passed away only a short time ago.
At that time Emeda was so ill that he
was unable to get out of bed to attend
the funeral services of his child, and
his death was only a matter of time.
He was born in Austria in the year
1880 and came to America and to
Davenport only a few years ago with
his family. He worked in Davenport
until he became so ill that he was un
able to arise from his bed. A few
weeks after being confined to his
home for the first time, his Infant
daughter died. The only surviving re
mainder of a family of seven are the I
wife, Emma, and one son, Johnnie.
Arrangements for the funeral have
been completed and they will be held
today from the home with interment
in Oakdale cemetery.
After an illness of several months'
duration, the last 10 days of which he
had been confined to his home, Peter
Ditmer, aged 70 years, a retired farm
er, died at the family home, 2519 Tele
graph road. Pneumonia was the cause
of death. Mr. Ditmer was born In
Probstei, Germany, Oct. 2S, 1842, and
left the old country for the United
States when 20 years of age. He came
directly to Davenport on landing in
America and had since madi his home
in this city. He conducted a dairy for
many years, but for the last 20 years
had been In retirement He is sur
