KRIEGER is not one of my surnames. I was looking for another obituary when I came across this one, and it looked interesting to me. (The obituary included a picture of Antone KRIEGER.) Therefore, I'm posting it here, along with some census information, and two Oregon Death Index records. Maybe it will help someone researching this family. The Oregonian newspaper probably printed an abbreviated version and you might find an obituary with more information in the newspaper which serviced the towns of Verboort, Hillsboro and Forest Grove during 1914.
Obituary found for Antone KRIEGER, with picture.
The Sunday Oregonian, of Portland, Oregon, July 5, 1914, Section 1, page 7, col. 3.
Microfilm box 268, July 2, 1914 - Aug 2, 1914, at the Lake Oswego Public Library, Lake Oswego, Oregon.
"Founder Verboort Colony in 1875 Passes Away"
"Verboort, Or., July 4. (Special.)--Antone Krieger, founder of the colony of Verboort, died Tuesday at his home here at the age of 78 years.
Mr. Krieger came to America from Holland when a child and settled in Wisconsin, where he lived for nine years. In 1875 he led a colony of his people to Oregon and settled on what was then known as the Black donation claim.
He is survived by his widow and the following children: John Krieger, Peter Krieger and Mrs. W. Hermens, by his first wife; Mrs. Mary Lunrow, Herman, Theodore, Albert, Johanna, Dora and Pauline Krieger, by the second wife.
The funeral was held from the Church of the Visitation, solemn requiem high mass being chanted by Father Miller. The interment was in the Catholic Cemetery of Verboort."
(Research Note: Verboort is in Washington County, Oregon, just East of Hwy 47, North of Forest Grove and Hillsboro.)
