At His Home Sunday Evening. Funeral Held From St. Francis Church Wednesday.

Mr. Barney Schoenhoff died peacefully at his home, Teutopolis, Sunday evening at a quarter to seven, Oct. 2nd, 1927 of heart trouble. Mr. Schoenhoff had been in delicate health for over six months.

Deceased was the son of Christian Schoenhoff and Marie A. Kammann and saw the light of day June 3rd, 1848 at Cin. Ohio. In 1850 the family came to Teutopolis and settled on the now Anton Deters farm in St. Francis township, three miles east of Teutopolis. Deceased attended the schools of the village. For a number of years he worked on Deyman's brick yard. Grown to manhood he married Miss Kathryn Nacke, Feb. 5, 1880. This union was blessed with five children. Mary died at the age of three, Ferdinand one, and Anna, Mrs. Frank Gruenloh, at the age of thirty-two. (Kathryn) Mrs. John Weis, (Elizabeth) Mrs. Jake Borries, with the wife, one sister (Kathryn) Mrs. Bernard Pruemer and eleven grandchildren survive him.

Mr. Schoenhoff was an unassuming man of quiet character, living in peace with everybody. Deceased certainly followed his bosom friend, Mr. Jos. Uthell in short time, which he told the PRESS reporter last week.

Funeral services were held at St. Francis church, Wednesday morning at nine o'clock, followed by interment of remains in parish cemetery. The obsequies were largely attended by relatives, neighbors, friends and St. Peter's Men's Sodality of which deceased was a loyal member. Father Ephrem Muench, O. F. M., guardian and pastor, sang the Requiem High Mass and Father Anthony Wagner O. F. M., assistant pastor, officiated at the grave.

May his soul rest in peace.

THE PRESS extends heartfelt sympathy to the bereaved wife and daughters of the deceased.

Anna Marie Borries, Gertrude and Agnes Weis, Mary Louise Schoenhoff and Mildred Schoenhoff, granddaughters of the deceased, acted as flower girls.

Out of town mourners were:- Mrs. Frank Vogel, daughter Teresa and son Leo of Altamont and Mrs. Louis Finkeldei of Effingham.


The undersigned extend sincere thanks to Rev. Fathers Ephrem, O. F. M., Anthony, O. F. M., Doctor Weisenhorn, neighbors, in fact to all who in any way assisted us before and after the death of our dear husband and father, Barney Schoenhoff, also many thanks for the beautiful flowers and spiritual bouquets. God bless you.
