Pall bearers were Oscar Case, William Beawer, Chas. Hane, Melvin Duvall, Adam Fitzel and Fred Schorer.

Mr. Sonneman was born on December 25, 1880, in Manitowoc county where he was married to Anna Goetsch on July 3, 1909. In 1912, the couple moved onto a farm in the town of Hull where they made their home since.
