German, Zacheus

In Memoriam

Died, at his residence in Lane County, Oregon, after a lingering illness, Z. D. German, aged 35 years.

This is the epilogue to life’s drama; the preface to the volume of Eternity.

Zacheus DeKelb German was born on the 27th day of July, 1832 in Morgan County, Missouri, he was the son of Zacheus German, a substantial farmer and an old an much respected citizen of that county.  We are not sufficiently advised in regard to the incidents of his youth to say much thereon, but from the many conversations we have had with him, he had gathered the impression that he was always a serious studious, and earnest character.  Those gayeties and levities so generally attractive to the young seemed to possess no charms for him; the time spent by them in sports, were, by him, passed in communion with his books and the counsel of men of learning.

In the year 1853, Mr. German entered the Columbia University, and after two years of close application, he graduated.  After leaving the University he began reading law under the instruction of Hon. Foster P. Wright, an eminent lawyer and jurist of his State.  In 1857, Mr. German was admitted to the bar in Cedar Co., Mo., and commenced the practice of his profession.  His strict business integrity and close attention to his profession soon acquired for him an extensive practice.  And the confidence and esteem in which he was held by the people, was evidenced in a marked manner by his election to offices of honor and trust among which were the offices of Probate Judge and School Commissioner – the latter office he held for a succession of terms.

In 1857 he was married to Miss Maggie E. McMinn, of Cedar County.

In the year 1864, that section of Missouri, being in the possession alternately of the conflicting armies, a life of peace and quiet, such as a man of Mr. German’s character desired, was impossible, and he, like many other similar natures, left the scene of strife and hatred and started for this coast in search of a home.  He stopped one year in the valley of the Bitter Root, and came to this place in 1865, taught school for a short time and entered the practice of his profession, in which he was engaged up to the time of his death.

His ability as a lawyer, and character as a man, combined with his industry and application to business attracted attention and he was fast growing into a respectable practice.  He was, at the time of his death, counsel in many of the most important cases in our Circuit Court, besides having a large amount of other business in his hands.  True as steel to his client, a clear and logical reasoned, an impressive and convincing advocate, a safe and truthful counselor and an industrious man, he was sure of success and deserving of it.

But he is gone – he has left us – the grace has claimed its own. To his bereaved and sorrow stricken family we tender the sincere condolence of a friend.

When they long for the touch of a vanquished hand and the sound of a voice that is still, may they remember that “their loss is his gain,” and place a firm reliance upon “Him who tempereth the wind to the shorn lamb,” the God of the widow and the fatherless, and remember that He and He alone can dry the tear from the mourner’s cheek and banish sorrow from the stricken heart.  Remember that He will lead them through pleasant paths on to the sunny land, there to be remitted with the lost loved ones of earth, to be parted no more forever.
