From: Le Mars Semi-Weekly Sentinel, December 6, 1921

Word was received in Le Mars on Friday of the death of Henry Pereboom, which took place on Thursday at his home in Nokomis, Ill. He was for many years a farmer in the vicinity of Craig and was well known in the community. He had been ill for the past nine months suffering from dropsy and heart trouble. The remains were brought to Le Mars on Sunday to the home of his brother-in-law, Dick Johnson, on Eagle street.

The funeral services were held yesterday afternoon at St. John's Lutheran church, Rev, J . J. Vollmar, the pastor, and Rev. J . Vollmar, of Craig, officiating at the services and the remains taken to Craig for interment.

Henry J. Pereboom was born at Mt. Olive, Ill., October 28, 1868, and in 1871 his parents moved to Nokomis, Ill., where he was brought up and received his education and worked on a farm. He was married at that place on February 14, 18994, to Miss Mary Buechenschetz. They came out west and farmed near Craig until 1918 when they went back to Nokomis to make their home. He leaves to mourn his death, his wife and three daughters, Rose and Cordia at home and Mrs. Ernest Schuldt, of Nokomis, Ill. One son preceded him in death. He also leaves two sisters and five brothers , who are Mrs. Richard Johnson, of this city; Mrs. J . Renken, of Chester, S. D.; John, residing at Ireton; Andrew, of Burke, S. D.; Fred , of Hazel, S. D.; Theodore, of Chester, S. D.; Gerrett, of Springfield, Ill.

Mr. Pereboom was a life long member of the Lutheran church. He was a successful farmer and a good citizen and enjoyed the respect of the community.

All the relatives came to attend the funeral with the exception of his brothers, Andrew and Gerrett, who were unable to come.

Transcriber’s Note: The date of his marriage says 18994 in the newspaper copy and since I had no way of knowing which number to delete, I left it the way it was printed.
