Klumpyan, Bernard (1870 - 30 Oct. 1933)

Bernard Klumpyan, town of Frankfort farmer, died at the Marshfield hospital Monday noon of injuries received when a large rock rolled on him and crushed both legs while he was working on his farm, which is located east of the Green Valley cheese factory in the town of Frankfort. Details of the accident are not known as Mr. Klumpyan lives alone on his farm, and, after the accident, he was held by the rock for a couple of hours before he was finally discovered by one of his neighbors who was attracted by the call for help. He was taken to the clinic in Colby and later taken to the hospital at Marshfield. However, it is believed the victim was hurt while digging a hole on his farm to bury a large stone when the walls caved in on him and the rock rolled upon him, crushing his legs.

Funeral services were held this Thursday morning at the St. Mary’s Catholic church, Rev. Leo Lang officiating, and internment was made in the Colby cemetery.

The deceased was born in Germany in 1870, thus reaching the age of sixty-three years. He came to the United States when seventeen years of age, settling in Almira, Wis. He moved to this vicinity thirty years ago. His wife died at Colby in 1910. Surviving are four sons and three daughters, namely: Joseph and Nick of Colby, Frank of Lomira, Math of Fond du Lac, Sister M. Borromea of St. Lucas, Iowa, Mrs. Walter Harrison of Milwaukee and Miss Marie Klumpyan of Milwaukee. Also two sisters, Mrs. John Wagner of Fond du Lac and Mrs. Henry Meis of Lomira and two brothers in Germany. The children were all here for the funeral.
