20. June 18, 1870

I thought a long time about putting this in, but it is true history.  He was not the only immigrant who found this new country unbearable and took his own life. We tend to forget how hard the change was to make.   This newspaper clipping from the local paper is self explanatory.  It seems Hans Alfred could not make the change to America, though he was sure things would be better for him here.
