Obituary : "Chas. Tinius, Successful Farmer and Well-Known German, Dies of the Infirmities of Old Age."

"Cha rles Tinius, Sr., one of the county's most successful farmers and useful citizens, died last Thursday morning at 2:30 o'clock at his home about five miles east of this city. Death was due principally to the infirmities of old age. His health had been failing from several years. About fifteen months ago he lost his eyesight , but he believed until his death that it would be restored.

Mr. Tinius was born in Berlin, Germany, on June 27, 1834, He came to America in 1854 and located at Cannelton, where he worked at his trade of cabinet maker. In 1859 he came to this county and settled on the farm where he died. For nearly half a century he engaged in farming and viniculture, his vineyards being the largest in the county. His life was one of industry and honesty and the business which he built up was the result of his own efforts.   

In January 1860, Mr. Tinius was married at Hold to Miss Caroline Bereck, who survives. O the six children born to the union five are living. The are, Mrs. Geo Unser, of Owensboro, Mrs Amanda Basham, William, of Seattle, Wash., and James and Charles, Jr. Mrs. Amelia Dick, wife of Daniel Dick, the other child, died in 1890. Mr. Tinius is survived also by a half sister, Mrs Mary Tinius, of Evansville.

In June, 1873, Mr. Tinius united with the Baptist church at Holt.

Mr. Tinius was a subscriber this paper for thirty years. He always paid his subscription in advance on the first of January in each year.

By the death of Mr. Tinius this county lost one of its oldest, German citizens, Ulrich Farber and B. Bohler, of this city, being those remaining. The news of his death was received with regret by old friends here , at Cannelton, Tell City and other points.

Among thos from a distance who attended  were Mr. and Mrs. Geo Unser, of Owensboro, and Mrs. Mary Tinius of Evansville."
