"Louis Naumann, county collector for Ste. Genevieve County, Mo., was born in the town of Wetter, Kreis Marburg, Kursessen, July 4, 1842, and is the son of Christain and Elizabeth (Junk) Naumann. The father came to America in 1850 and settled in Philadelphia, where, three years later, his family came. In 1855 they removed to Ste. Genevieve, Mo., where the father followed his trade of butcher, which occupation he followed until his death. Louis Naumann learned his father's trade, and in 1865 he established a meat market at Ste. Genevieve which he still conducts. In 1865 he married Miss Rosa Haug, a native of St. Louis, Mo., who came to Ste. Genevieve with her parents when a child. This union resulted in the birth of thirteen children, nine of whom are living. In 1880 he was elected sheriff of the county, and reelected in 1882. In 1886 he was elected to his present position, that of county collector. The family are members of the Catholic church, and are universally respected." Goodspeed's History of Southeast Missouri, published in 1888, page 607.

The Str. Charles Morgan was returning from an excursion last Saturday night when, at Horse Shoe Bend, she collided with the Central City, which was bound for Memphis with a cargo of flour and produce. The Central City was struck admidships and immediately sank. The crew were all saved but the cargo is a total loss, the river being covered with barrels of flour, whiskey, etc., of which Mr. NAUMAN has 12 barrels, Mr. BRICKEY 100, and others more or less. There are said to have been between two and three thousand barrels of flour on board.
