Neverman, Henry (4 Sep 1837 - 29 Sep 1908)
Henry Neverman, one of Neillsville, Clark County’s oldest residents, died at his home on Hewett St., Tuesday morning, Sept. 29, 1908. His death came very suddenly, being due to apoplexy. The evening before he was working about the house and garden and fell down. He thought it was only a spell of dizziness, was helped to the house and went to bed. He did not appear to suffer to any great extent, and the next morning slept quietly away.
Deceased was born in Mechlenburg, Germany, Sept. 4, 1837, where he grew to manhood. On Nov. 4, 1868 he was married to Miss Mary Heintze, and they embarked at once for America, coming directly to Neillsville, which has been their home ever since. With the bereaved wife are left threes sons and seven daughters, namely Mrs. O.E. Jackson, Fred, Julius, Edward, Mrs. Morton Tompkins, Misses Mae, Della, Viola and Alice Neverman and Mrs. John Menta. Of these, Edward lives in Chicago and Viola at Mt. Morris, Ill., the others’ homes are in this city.
Mr. Neverman followed the carpenter trade in Neillsville during practically all the time he lived here, although advancing years and poor health prevented his working at his trade much of late. He was very industrious, always doing something useful as far as his strength would allow. He was a man who gave no offense to any one, and leaves not one enemy in the world.
The funeral will be held at the home this (Thursday) afternoon at 2:30 o’clock, Rev. H.A. Risser officiating.
