On June 12, 1896, he was married to Sophia Sander. At this time, he settled on a farm in Platte County southeast of Creston where he spent most of his life. To this union six children were born, five sons and one daughter, Reinhold and Theodore of Creston, Walter, Alfred, Oswald, and Elsa (Mrs. Otto Mackenstadt) all of Leigh.

      Mr. Engelbart passed away at the age of 85 years, 8 months, and 12 days. He was an esteemed member of the surrounding community and many will pay tribute to his memory.
