George Binhack, a well known farmer of the county, died at his home near Kings at 4:45 o'clock this morning after an illness of a year and a half, caused by Bright's disease and heart trouble.


Funeral arrangements have not been made, pending word from two brothers, Anton, of Chicago, and John, of Milwaukee.  Burial probably will be in Maple Hill cemetery.


The deceased was born in Muttersdorf, Bohemia, August 1, 1855, and came to this country when twenty years of age.


In addition to the widow, five daughters, survive: Gertrude, who is a teacher in the Franklin school here; Anita Grace, Elizabeth and Pauline, and two son, George, Jr. a mail carrier at the post office here and Raymond, all of whom live at home; one sister, Mrs. Julia Lenk of South Milwaukee, and a third brother, Martin of Spokane, Wash.


Two sons, Arvel and Russell, died of influenza while in the service in October 1918.  Russell, who was in the Navy died at Seattle, Wash. Oct 8, and Arvel, who was a member of an aviation squadron, died on Long Island, N.W. five days later.  The two brothers were buried in one grave in Maple Hill cemetery here.


Mr. Binhack had been for a number of years a member of Cunningham Chapel Methodist church at Kings.
