Elkader Register, Fri., 10 Nov. 1882. (Note: The date on this newspaper appears correct as there are no dates given after the papers date in various articles on the page.)

Mrs. Charles Plagman, of Elk township, died on the 8th inst. The bereaved husband has the sympathy of a host of friends in his great loss.



Burial is in Immanual Lutheran cemetery, Elkport. DOD on gravestone is 11/8/1882

Her passing was noted by two different correspondents to the newspaper and appearing on two different newspaper dates.

1880 census Elk township, clayton Co., Iowa:

Chris Plagmann, 46, born Germany, farmer
Mena Plagmann, 41, born Germany
Henry Plagmann, 11, born Iowa
Anna Plagmann, 9, born Iowa
William Plagmann, 7, born Iowa
Emma Plagmann, 5, born Iowa
Charles Plagmann, 3, born Iowa
Mary Plagmann, 1, born Iowa

Mr Plagman has remarried, as shown on the 1885 Iowa state census:

Christian Plagrman, 50, born Germany
Dora Plagrman, 47, his wife, born Germany
And the six children listed above.

The two newspaper accounts are confusing regarding dates and names, but this is the only Plagman/Plagmann family shown on the census for the newspaper reports given localities
