CAPT. WILLIAM LOFINCK.
Capt. William Lofinck, a well-known and substantial retired merchant of Marysville, an honored veteran of the Civil War, former treasurer of Marshall county and former member of the city council of Marysville, is a native of the state of Illinois, but has been a resident of Marysville ever since 1871, with the exception of a few years spent in business in Colorado. He was born in the town of Waterloo county seat of Monroe county, Illinois, December 20, 1843, son of John and Katherine (Lotz) Lofinck, natives of Germany, whose last days were spent in Illinois.
John Lofinck was born in the city of Worms, on the Rhine, in Hesse, Germany, March 6, 1808, and was trained to the trade of a carpenter. There he married and in 1842 he and his wife came to the United States, the sailing vessel on which they took passage being six weeks in making the voyage. They settled at Waterloo, Illinois, where John Lofinck worked at his trade for a number of years and then engaged in the hotel business there and was thus engaged until his retirement a few years before his death, his death occurring in 1867. His widow, who was born on November 30, 1809, survived until 1873. They were members of the German Lutheran church and their children were reared in that faith. There were five of these children, of whom the subject of this sketch was the third in order of birth, the others being as follow: Henry, deceased; Bernhard, deceased; Katherine, who lives at St. Louis, the widow of C. Ruppert, a veteran of the Civil War, and Mary, who is still living at Waterloo, Illinois, the widow of W. Bode.
William Lofinck received his early schooling at Waterloo, Illinois, and at the age of fourteen went to Bellevile, that state and was there engaged as a clerk in a grocery store for eighteen months, at the end of which time he returned to Waterloo, remaining there, a valued assistant to his father in the operation of the hotel, until 1860, when he went to St. Louis and took a position as a clerk in a store and remained there until September 1, 1861, on which day he returned home and enlisted in Company A, Forty-ninth Regiment, Illinois Volunteer Infantry, for service during the Civil War. He was detailed as one of the company fifers and presently was made chief fifer of his regiment. With this command he saw service at the battle of Shiloh. Later securing a discharge from this command he helped to organize a company of colored troops and on April 13, 1865, was made first lieutenant of Company D, Sixty-first Regiment, Illinois Volunteer Infantry, and presently was made captain of Company F of that regiment. Captain Lofinck saw much service in the South and upon the cessation of hostilities was stationed for guard duty at Baton Rouge, Louisiana, where he was mustered out on December 30, 1865.
Upon the completion of his military service, Captain Lofinck returned to his home at Waterloo, Illinois, and resumed the hotel business in which he had received careful training from his father in the days of his youth. He married in 1867 and in 1871 came to Kansas, locating at Marysville, where he engaged in the mercantile business and was thus engaged until his election to the office of county treasurer. He entered upon the duties of that office in October, 1882, having been elected in the election of November, 1881, and in the fall election of 1883 was re-elected, thus serving two terms as treasurer of the county, In 1886, upon the completion of his term of public service, Captain Lofinck went to Trinidad, Colorado, where he established a grocery store and was thus engaged in business at that place until 1890, when he returned to Marysville, where he has since continued to make his home and where he has been occupied in looking after his numerous investments. Captain Lofinck has a good deal of property in Marshall county, has an interest in a gold mine in Santa Fe county, New Mexico, and is accounted among the substantial and well-to-do citizens of Marysville. He is a life-long Republican and has ever given his earnest attention to local civic affairs. Besides his long service as county treasurer, he also has rendered valuable public service as a member of the Marysville city council and has ever been on the side of progress and public improvement.
On January 20, 1867, at Waterloo, Illinois, Capt. William Lofinck was untied in marriage to Agnes E. H. Goelitz, who was born in the village of Osterode, in the Hartz mountains of Germany, September 26, 1846, and who was but six week old when her parents, George and Christina (Tahlbusth) Goelitz, came to this county and
