CHARLES MOLT, One of Wayne County's Best Citizens Answers Call at Enterprise

Charles Molt, one of the substantial citizens and successful farmers of near Enterprise, died last Thursday morning, March 10, 1910, at his home in Elm River Township, after a long illness.
Mr. Molt has been one of the leading spirits in that community for many years, a man who stood high in the esteem of all his neighbors. He left a large estate as testimony of his energy and thrift, and leaves the community a splendid example of good citizenship. The following obituary has been prepared for publication:
Charles Molt was born in Betz Grit, Wurttemburg, Germany, Jan. 21, 1832. Departed this life, March 10, 910, at his home 2 1/2 miles south of Enterprise, Wayne County, Illinois at the age of 78 years, 1 month and 17 days. He came to America and to the State of Illinois in the year 1851 with John Ceipger and worked for William Holtzhausen. In Oct. 1855 he united in marriage with Kissiah Hotzhausen. To this union were born ten children. His wife and four children preceded him to the haven of rest. Three sons, William G., of Farina, Ill., John D. of Indianola, Ill., and Jerome P. of Wayne County, Ill., and three daughters, Mrs. Frona Baum and Mrs. Allie Miller, both of Indianola, Ill., and Mrs. Lutie Donovan, of Sidell, Ill., survive him. It was in the year 1881 that his wife died. In the year 1883 he again entered into holy marriage with Katie Schwartz. To this union were born six children, two having died when small. The remaining, Frank, Herman, Lizzie and Maggie all live in Wayne County, Ill. He is survived by his wife, ten children, thirty-two grandchildren, nine great-grandchildren, one brother, George Molt, of Wayne County, and many relatives and friends to mourn his departure. The last 47 years of his life were spent in Wayne County with the exception of about three years when he lived near Flora, Ill.
Bro. Molt was converted to God in the year 1870 under the labors of Rev. J.M. Kronmiller and united with the evangelical Association at Enterprise, Ill. of which class he was a faithful member until he fell asleep in Jesus. Bro. Molt has been afflicted for about four years. The last year was a year of great suffering. He was reconciled to God and bore his suffering with great patience, saying his hope was bright and clear for Heaven. Through his death the family loses a devoted husband and father, the community a good neighbor and citizen.
The funeral services were conducted at the home, March 11, and attended by a large assembly of relatives and friends.1

He was buried in March 1910 at the Evangelical Church Cemetery, Enterprise, Wayne Co., IL.
