Published in the Mayville News (Dodge Co., WI), September 30, 1909:


Sunday evening at 8 o'clock Mrs. Ernstine Fellwock, nee Oertwig, passed away at her home in town Oak Grove, her death due to heart and throat trouble, of which she suffered for a year.

Mrs. Fellwock was widely known and esteemed, having lived all her life in Dodge County. She was born Aug. 30, 1849 in town Theresa, thus she attended the age of 60 years. The lower Emanuel's church was the scene of her baptism and of her confirmation after she had passed through the parochial school there, and there she was united in marriage with Wm. Fellwock.

The surviving children of Mr. Fellwock's first marriage are Mmes. Augusta Koehler of Beaver Dam, Florentine Machmueller, town Theresa and Emilie Haberkorn, town Lomira. Of the second, one son William, died at the age of 16 years. The remaining children are: Mmes. Louise Lichtenberg, Hustisford and Anna Haberkorn, Byron, Marie and Johanna at home and Fred Fellwock of town Oak Grove. In Mayville Mrs. Fellwock also leaves relatives; so the John Fellwock and Gustav Steinbach families.

The funeral took place yesterday from the Lutheran church at Oak Grove, the Rev. Kirchner officiating. May she rest in peace.
