Chas. Neymeyer Is Called
Prominent Young Farmer in German Twp. Dies Suddenly
The death of Chas. Neymeyer, which occurred at his home about two miles and a half southeast of town early last Saturday morning, was a shock to relatives and friends and takes from our midst one of the best young men of the community. He had been in his usual health and in the early evening of Friday with his family started to drive to Austinville when he was taken sick on the way and finally decided to turn the car around and go back home. He was barely able to reach there and on being helped into the house died a few hours later. Mr. Neymeyer had complained of severe headaches at various times and it is now thought that these were the forerunner of the disease which ended his life. On his arrival at his home he had severe hemorrhages from the nose and ears and doubtless death was caused by a blood clot which had been forming.
Deceased was twenty-seven years of age and was married on March 9, 1911, to Marian Folkers, who with two little children, a son and a daughter, survives him. They have made their home with Mrs. Neymeyer's uncle, Mr. Folkert Hayunga, since their marriage and have been exceedingly happy and the young wife is crushed by the terrible sorrow which has come to her. Besides the immediate members of his family, his parents, Mr. and Mrs. Jacob Neymeyer, and six sisters and five brothers, are mourning the loss of this young life, and a large circle of friends.
The funeral services were held Tuesday afternoon at the Agena church and interment made in the cemetery adjoining. The church was filled with sorrowing relatives and friends and the floral offerings were exceedingly beautiful.--Inter-County Journal
