Neverman, Fred. L. (15 Jan. 1871 - 17* Nov. 1930) * Could be off

Fred L. Neverman, life long resident of Neillsville, died of a hemorrhage early Monday night in his rooms below the Kapellen building after an illness of a few hours. Mr. Neverman, who was better known to his friends as "Dutch" , was born Jan. 15, 1871, the second child of Mr. and Mrs. Henry Neverman and with the exception of a few brief intervals, spent his entire life in this city. While still a youth, and after attending the public school, Mr. Neverman became a barber and followed the profession actively until a year or two ago. For a time he worked as a barber in Minneapolis.

When the Spanish-American war broke out, Mr. Neverman was a volunteer with old Co. A, captained by J. W. Hommel. The Company left April 28, 1898, going to Camp Harvey at Milwaukee, then to Charleston, S.C., Chikamauga Park, Tenn., and ten to Porto Rico. He was mustered out Jan. 5, 1899.

Mr. Neverman was a keen lover of music and attained great skill on the clarinet. For years he played with Fred Whitcomb’s orchestra and with the various bands in this city and nearby. In 1896 he with several other young Neillsville men joined Williams’ Circus as musicians and continued with it until the show was forced to close by poor business in South Dakota.

Mr. Neverman is survived by eight brothers and sisters, Mrs. Alice Flynn, Mrs. Emily Jackson, Mrs. M. Thompkins, Miss May Neverman and Jule Neverman, all of Neillsville, Mrs. John Skewis, Tacoma; Mrs. John Minta, Indianapolis; Ed. Neverman, druggist, Chicago.

The funeral which is to be held Thursday at 2 p.m. from the Lowe Funeral Home, will be in charge of Spanish-American veterans.
