Fuhrmann, Carl (15 Jan. 1854 - 12 June 1932)
Carl Fuhrmann, an old pioneer of this section, having lived in Marathon county fifty-three years, passed away at his farm home east of Colby Sunday, June 12, at 8:20 A.M., cancer of the throat of three years duration being the cause of his departure to the heavenly goal. Funeral services were held at the Town of Frankfort Lutheran church, Rev. Nothbom officiating, Wednesday, June 15, and internment was made in the town of Frankfort cemetery. The pall bearers were Robert Heppner, Herman Podevels, Armond Bartz, Walther Wurthman, Ed Ruppert, Joe Sazama, Sr. The flower girls were Ruby Pacholke, Iris Thiel, Katherine Heppner, Charlotte Heppner, Marie Heppner, Bernice Heppner, Stella Heppner and Mrs. Edward Pacholke.
The deceased was born in Germany January 15th, 1854, thus reaching the age of seventy-eight years, four months and twenty-eight days. He came to the United States when seventeen years of age and to Marathon county fifty-three years ago and lived here ever since, thus being numbered among the early pioneers, who, by hard work and privations, built this fine country. He was married to Caroline Zimmerman at Caledone, Wisconsin May 20, 1879, and she and the following children survive: Mrs. R. O. Helms, North Bend, Oregon; Mrs. Ed. Hansohn, Visalia, California; Mrs. Andrew Schuller, Visalia, California; Mrs. Herman Ungerecht, Caledonia, Wisconsin; Mrs. John Pacholke, Colby; Mrs. Eugene Thiel, Colby; Ruth, at home; and one son, Albert, Butternut, Wisconsin. Also two sisters, Mrs. Carl Hoernke and Mrs. Ernest Hoernke, both of Edgar, Wisconsin.
The deceased was a kind and loving husband and father, a good Christian, and, like all our early pioneers, was a man who united sound sense with strong convictions and had generous impulses and hospitable ways.
