Hoffman, George (3 MAY 1857 - 1 JUL 1924)
George Hoffman died at his farm home west of the village (Dorchester, Clark County, Wis.), Tuesday, July 1st, 1924, after an illness of about two months duration.
A funeral service was held at the Little White Church Wednesday evening, Rev. Marks officiating, and Thursday morning the remains were taken to Hastings, Neb., where interment will take place.
George Hoffman was born in Russia May 3, 1857 and was 67 years, 1 month and 28 days old at time of death. He immigrated to the U. S. , and July 17, 1885, was married to Miss Eckhardt at Hastings, Neb.
Six daughters were born to them, who with the mother survive him, four married, one living in Kansas, one in Washington, one in the old home town, Hastings, and Mrs. John Ramminger of Dorchester, and two single, Esther at home and Kathryn who is employed at Hastings.
Miss Kathryn was called home in May and went with him to Chippewa Falls for medical aid, but nothing could be done. When they brought him home she returned to Hastings, but Saturday she arrived again and was here to the end.
Six years ago they came to Dorchester country and purchased their present farm west of town. The farm work was hard and his physical strength was not enough to stand the strain but he kept bravely on to the end. A fine, honest man, a credit to any community and will be missed by those who knew him.
The Clarion with his host of friends extend sympathy to the bereaved.
