Obit of Katie Kemmer d/o John Kemmer 1895
From the Chatsworth Plaindealer
OCTOBER 11, 1895
On Sunday, October 6, at the home of her parents, Mr. and Mrs. John Kemmer, southeast of town, occurred the death of Katie Kemmer, at the age of fourteen years and fifteen days.
Katie was the third child and second daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Kemmer and had always enjoyed very good health. About three weeks prior to her death she began to complain of not feeling well, but took to her bed only one week before she died.
The funeral was held on Tuesday morning from SS. Peter and Paul's church and the remains laid to rest in the Catholic cemetery. A large number of friends of the family attended the services at the church and the funeral cortege was very large.
The bereaved parents have the deepest sympathy of the people of this community in their sad affliction. Two other children, a son and a daughter, are now very sick with the same disease.
