Albert Ewert was born in Theresa, Dodge county, Feb. 3, 1859. Four years later he came with his parents to the town of Pella where they settled on a farm in what was then an undeveloped community and virtually a wilderness. Here Mr. Ewert grew to manhood, helped his parents hew a farm out of the forests and later took over the old homestead. He was married to Augusta Schilling of Pella on March 16, 1883 and they resided on the old homestead until four years ago when they came to this city to make their home.
Mr. Ewert was a man of quiet disposition but enjoyed the respect and affection of a wide circle of friends. He was a member and trustee of the Bethlehem Lutheran church at Pella for many years. He leaves to mourn his wife, two children, Mrs. Adeline Radke of Marion and Berner Ewert of this city, four grandchildren and two brothers, Herman and Fred of Pella.
