On Sunday morning at ten o'clock, Dover lost another of her old
citizens. Jacob Rippel was the person, and his death was not unexpected. For
several years he has been frail, and once or twice before he came very near
the brink.
Mr. Rippel was born in Rhein Beirn, (Bavaria) Germany, April 9th, 1816,
and came to America in 1837, and to Dover one year later. In 1841, himself
and Miss Hanna Geltz were united in marriage, and to them were born eight
children, five of whom are still living. Mrs. Rippel also survives him.
The funeral is to be held today (Wednesday) at two o'clock, from St.
John's Evangelical church, of which he has been a long time member.
Date of death, 5 May, 1889. Submitted by Anita A. Rippel
