Death of Nicholas Hoffmann
A large number of Le Mars people were at Alton last week to attend the funeral of Nicholas Hoffmann who died at Ft. Madison and was buried at Alton.
The Democrat says:
The funeral of Nicholas P. Hoffmann occurred Thursday at St. Mary's Catholic church in this city, Rev. P. Hoffmann, of Ft. Madison, officiating, assisted by Rev. Brune of this place and Rev. Schilmocler, of Hospers. Mr. Hoffmann was a native of Germany and came to America fifty-three years ago. He was afflicted with asthma, which disease caused his death on Sunday, Jan. 13, in the 66th year of his life, at the residence of his only son, Rev. P. Hoffmann at Ft. Madison, Iowa. The remains were brought to this city for interment and a very large audience of friends attended the funeral, attesting their love and affection for this good old man who had so often befriended them. His wife, one sister Mrs. Nic Hoffmann, of LeMars, and one brother, Chas. Hoffmann, of St. Donatus, survive him. Mr. and Mrs. Theo. Arens, Mr. and Mrs. John Pfeffer, Mr. and Mrs. Fred Mousel and the Goebel brothers are also relatives of the deceased.
