Simon Gliem, Sr.
"Simon Gliem, Sr., died Friday evening last at a little after six oíclock. The deceased was born Feb. 3, 1828, at Oberellem near Eisenach in the duchy of Meiningen, Germany. Here he was educated in the common schools and Sept. 19, 1852 was married to Miss Anna Elizabeth Stein, with whom he lived happily to the time of his death and who still survives to mourn his loss. Mr. and Mrs. Gliem and their son Simon emigrated to this country and settled in St. Clair in 1883 where they joined their other son Charles who had come here the year before. In all eight children were born to them five of whom died in Germany and one, Mrs. Maria Elizabeth Dallmann, is still residing there. The best tribute that can be paid to this couple as a good father and exemplary mother is to be found in the character of their children two of whom are among our most esteemed citizens and like their father and mother have a well established reputation for sturdy integrity and honorable dealing. In all in addition to the aged wife he leaves behind two sons, one daughter, two daughters-in-law, one son-in-law and ten grandchildren. Mr. and Mrs. Gliem were consistent members of the Lutheran church and were highly esteemed by their associates in church and society. In addition to the loss of the church and family the community loses in his department one of its most industrious and best citizens. The family desire through the Republican to express their appreciation of and gratitude for the innumerable acts of kindness shown by neighbors and friends during his last illness and in connection with the funeral of their loved and departed one."
