DANIEL ERNST, SR. died at the home of his daughter, Mrs. Julius Oberlies, of Keokuk, Monday, December 15, at 12 noon, the result of strangulation of the bowels.  He had been employed in the cereal plant, Keokuk, and last Friday a trouble with which he had been afflicted for some years became more aggravated and he was compelled to desist work.  But as late as Sunday evening he was at the supper table.  Later his ailment became more pronounced, no relief seemed possible, and he died as announced above. Tuesday afternoon the remains were brought to the late home of the deceased in this city. Daniel Ernst, the son of Adam and Elizabeth Ernst, was born in Warsaw December 2, 1858, and this city continued to be his home until his death. September 22, 1881, he was married to Miss Annie Fleck, who survives him, as do also three sons and three daughters, who are, in the order of seniority, Elizabeth, wife of Paul Eymann, of Keokuk;  Mamie, at home; Frank of Warsaw; Henry, of Milwaukee, Wi.; Helen, wife of Julius Oberlies, of Keokuk, and Daniel Jr. of Warsaw. He is also survived by one sister, Mrs. Paul Plume.In other years Mr. Ernst was an exceptionally large and robust man, at one time weighing some 280 pounds, but in the past few years he had become thin and emaciated.  In his younger days he took a deep interest in the fire department and was chief for several terms. He was also superintendent of water works for a number of years.  LIn whatever capacity he served he gave his best to the office. For a third of a century he was engaged in the harness making and saddlery business, and was an expert workman at the trade.  Personally, he was genial and companionable, and was upright in his relations with his fellowmen.The funeral was from the Lutheran church Wednesday afternoon at 2:30 o'clock, Rev. Chas. Rehahn, the pastor, officiating.  Interment in the Lutheran Cemetery. ..submitted by: J. Scholler
