Death of John Kaput
John Kaput, son of Reent and Hilda Kaput, was born in Heerenland, Germany on July 10, 1847, and died at his home in Beaman, Iowa, on Saturday afternoon, March 1, 1924, aged 76 years, 7 months and 21 days.
He was united in marriage to Miss Trintje Von Dees on March 30, 1873, at Wymeer, Germany. In 1906 they emigrated to America, and on arriving came directly to Beaman. The following ten years they lived on various farms in the vicinity, after which they came to town where they lived the last seven years.
They were the parents of seven children, all of whom are living except the eldest, a son, who died in early childhood. The remaining are Mrs. Trintje Klinkenhagen, who is the wife of a wealthy farmer living in East Friesland, a province of Germany, Reent, of Lyle, Minn., John C., Tyro, Kans.; Mrs. Hilda Byl of Mason City; Harm, of Beaman and Kurt, of Gladbrook.
Besides his wife and children he is survived by three brothers and two sisters, living in Germany, and also another sister, Mrs. Christ Harms, of Steamboat Rock, Iowa, 18 grandchildren, besides nieces and nephews and other near relatives and friends.
Mr. Kaput was a life-long member of the Evangelical German Reform Church, and had the early teaching and training which that church affords the young, and which expressed itself in his life, for he was a man of high integrity, thrift and neighborliness that won him many warm friends.
Funeral services were held from Beaman M.E. church at 1:30 p.m., Tuesday, conducted by Rev. J. J. Snyder. Burial was made in Vienna cemetery. The pallbearers were Henry Koch, Jasper Von Dees, Henry DeVoogd, Reinhard Kalkwarf, Dick Vry and Albert Kaufmann.
