Aged Citizen Laid to Rest
Mrs. J. O. Youngman Died Sunday Night at Home of Daughter in Germania
Funeral in Estherville
Held From Presbyterian Church Wednesday Afternoon

After a long siege of suffering, Mrs. J. O. Youngman, a pioneer citizen of Emmet County, died at the home of her daughter, Mrs. Robert Hamilton, in Germania Sunday night, December 10th.

The body will be brought to Estherville on the noon train today (Wednesday) and taken to the Presbyterian church of which deceased was a member, where the funeral services will be held a two o’clock. Interment will be made in Oak Hill cemetery by the side of her companion.

Hattie Herriman was born in Toronto, Ont., Sept. 8, 1846. She was educated and fitted for a teacher, teaching a number of years in Niles, Mich., and later in Mt. Morris and Rockford, Ill.

She was married to J. O. Youngman in 1873. To this union six children were born, all surviving as follows: Mrs. Maude Hamilton of Germania; Mrs. Blanche Jordon of Estherville; Mrs. Winnifred Roy of Los Angeles, Cal.; Mrs. Mabel Hilmer of Spring Valley, Minn.; Mrs. Mattie Guttenburg of Minneapolis; and J. Oakes Youngman of Estherville.

Mrs. Youngman had been very frail in health for a number of years but was always cheerful and happy. She was a true Christian mother devoting her whole life to lighten the burdens of others, yet lonely and grieving since her dear companion was taken from her five years ago.

Although she will be so sadly missed, we know she was prepared and awaiting the summons of the Life Giver. She leaves one sister and her children, but “they mourn not as those who have no hope.” “She rests from her labor and her works do follow her.” (Vindicator and Republican, Estherville, IA, December 13, 1916)

Mrs. Youngman Passes Away
Another of Emmet County’s Early Settlers is Called to the Great Beyond
Mrs. J. O. Youngman, one of Emmet County’s pioneer citizens, passed away at the home of her daughter, Mrs. Robert Hamilton at Germania last Sunday evening. Mrs. Youngman has been a resident of this county for years and is well known among the older residents. Her quiet and unassuming ways and the fact she has been a sufferer for so long, did not allow her acquaintances among the later residents of the county. She was closely attached to the pioneer residents, however. Today the remains were brought to this city and laid to rest in the Oak Hill cemetery. The services were held in the Presbyterian church, of which she was an active and faithful member.

Mrs. Hattie Harriman Youngman was born on the eighth day of September, 1846 in Toronto, Canada. She was united in marriage to Mr. Youngman in the years 1873 and to this union six children were born; Mrs. Blanche Jordon of this city, Mrs. Maude Hamilton of Germania; Mrs. Winnifred Roy of Los Angeles, Cal.; Mrs. Mable Hilmer of Spring Valley, Minn.; Mrs. Mattie Guttenburg of Minneapolis and Oaks Youngman of this city.

Mrs. Youngman was a highly educated woman and had fitted herself in her early life as a teacher, which profession she followed in her young womanhood. (Estherville Enterprise, Estherville, IA, December 13, 1916)
