Garbush, Adolph (14 DEC 1890 - 22 AUG 1919)

Private Adolph Garbush met his death by drowning at Beloit, Aug. 22, 1919, while there on a visit at the home of his sister. He had returned from overseas a few weeks ago and was suffering from stomach trouble and was held in the hospital at Fr. Sheridan. He got a short furlough to come up to Beloit to visit his relatives, and seemed quite depressed as the end of his furlough came near, and it is thought that his mind became unsettled. He went out alone and the indications are that he jumped into the river. Adolph was born in the town of Grant, Clark County, Wis. and was 28 years, 8 months and 8 days old. He was a good young man and well liked by all.

His mother, Mrs. Thomas Donahue, and a sister, Mrs. Guy Loy, left here Saturday morning to visit with him, but his death occurred before their arrival.

He leaves besides his mother, three sisters and two brothers. The body was sent here for burial, the funeral being held Monday afternoon at the Congregational Church, Rev. G. W. Longenecker officiating. Six soldier boys in uniform acted as pallbearers.
