Timothy, I do believe this is the Henry that was a son of Fred Langenberg & Ellen Mullaney Langenberg. They had 9 children and I find them in the Iowa City, Johnson County area for quite a few years. His parents were married in 1861 there, and it seems as if the children were born there also. Fred was the sister to my gggrandmother, they come from Saxony Germany abt. 1850. Would it possible for you to scan this document about Henry ? Thanks, Judy

Hello again. Of course, I'd be glad to scan it for you, but I could also give you the original if you'd like it. It is an invitation in its original envelope. (The envelope is addressed to Mrs. C. Vogt and family.) The invitation reads: "Your presence is requested at the marriage ceremony of Maggie Fahy and Henry Langenberg, Monday evening, July third, eighteen hundred and ninety-three, at 5:30 o'clock. St. Mary's church, Iowa City, Ia." By the way, once I scan this document, where do I send it?

Judy,
Hi, I have the obituary of Mrs. Ellen Langenberg. Published in the Iowa City Citizen on January 24, 1910.
MRS. LANGENBERG DIED YESTERDAY:
Wife of pioneer shoemaker succumbs to attack of heart failure. Mrs. Ellen Lanagenberg wife of Fred Langenberg, one of the oldest shoemakers in this section of the state, passed away yesterday morning 7o'clock at the home of her son Louis one mile east of the city. Death came s the result of heart failure from which the deceased had been suffering for a considerable time.

Mrs. Ellen Mulaney was born in Ireland on March 28 1837 and there grew to womanhood. Upon coming to America she came to Iowa City, where on the 7th of April, 1861, she was united in marriage to Fred and the couple have ever since continued to reside in this city. To this union were born eight children as follow: Henry, Frank, Sam and George of Superior, Minn., Mrs. Nellie Mahansa of Oxford, Mrs. (Catherine) Gus Klein, Louis H. and Cellia all of Iowa City.

Had Mrs. Langenberg lived until next year she and her husband would have celebrated their golden wedding anniversary. She had a wide acquaintences in and about the city and her demise is mourned by a great number of friends and relatives.

Her husband is at this time confined to his bed due to the fact that he fell on the slippery walk about two weeks ago when he fractured a hip.

The requem mass will be held Wednesday morning at 9 o'clock at the St. Mary's church and the interment will be made in the St. Joseph's cemetary.
