Alton Evening Telegraph (Illinois), Monday, May 8, 1916: Joseph Krug, in the 80th year, died at his home, State and Parker streets, at 9:30 o'clock Monday morning from old age. Mr. Krug's illness began last January. Most of the time since he became ill he was confined to his bed, and the last two weeks his condition had become very serious so that his death was looked for at any time.

He moved to Alton fifty-five years ago and he bought the place on State street where he spent the rest of his life and where he reared a large family. He was a hard working, industrious man, of good character and he was very successful. For many years he conducted practically the only florist business in Alton. All over Alton he was highly esteemed, and was regarded as one of Alton's best citizens. He had built up a valuable institution at his botanical garden on State street, in which he was deeply interested. He leaves his wife and nine children, Misses Barbara, Kate, Annie and Clara Krug, Mrs. William Walters, Mrs. George Landre, and Messrs. John, Joseph and Aloysius Krug.
