THE KANSAS CITY JOURNALS SUNDAY, OCTOBER 10, 1897.

A French "Old Mortality."Patriotic feeling has been aroused by the death of M. "Ziegelmeyer, who kept a hotelat Nlederbronn, in Lorraine. M. Zlegelmeyer was an "Old Mortality." He regularly decorated the tombs of soldiers who fell fighting near Metz. in 1870. He begged his family to bury him in a French soldier's uniform, with a French flag for a winding sheet.

I search on Ziegelmeyer and Niederbronn showed an image of the "Ziegelmeyer Restaurant". The postcard was not dated. I'm assuming this was the "hotel" mentioned above. Niederbronn is just a few miles from Reichshoffen where my ancestors are from.
