Death Was Sudden
H. B. Koohlman Was In Ackley Saturday Afternoon--Died That Night
Lived At Cleaves 22 Years
Funeral to Be Held This Afternoon
Seated in his home, engaged in conversation with his daughter, Mrs. Martin Jannssen, H. B. Koohlman, twenty-two years a resident of the neighboring village of Cleves, passed away at about 9 o'clock Saturday evening.
Mr. Koohlman had been in Ackley during the afternoon and appeared to be in his usual spirits; although his health during the past year had not been good, he was enabled to be around and felt no particular distress. He had enjoyed a reasonably hearty meal and was enjoying the comforts of home; he was seated in his chair when he was stricken with heart failure, sinking into his seat, expiring immediately, without a struggle or any evidence of having felt any particular pain.
Mr. Koohlman was born in East Friesland, Germany, and at the time of death was entering into his seventieth year. Twenty-two years ago he bought the general merchandise business at Cleves, then conducted by H. W. Goettel of this city; he continued in business until about two years ago, when he sold it to Messrs. King & Janssen; he served as postmaster of the village for a number of years and during all the time that he was engaged in business held the confidence and esteem of the people of the community, enjoying a good patronage.
Deceased is survived by two daughters, Mrs. Fred Fischer and Mrs. Martin Janssen, of Cleves, a brother, H. Koohlman, resides at Sibley, Iowa, and a sister in Germany. He was an uncle of H. B. Koohlman the general merchant at Wellsburg.
Funeral services are to be held at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Martin Janssen this Wednesday afternoon at 1 o'clock, from that place the remains will be taken to the German Presbyterian church, in German township, where a further service will be held, and the remains laid to rest in the cemetery that closely adjoins the church.
