Funeral was Held From the Catholic Church Tuesday of This Week

Mr. Henry Kemper, one of the earliest pioneers of this community, died at
his home in Hanover Thursday, January 12, 1911, at 7:45 p.m., after a
lingering illness, at the age of 77 years, 4 months and 27 days.

The funeral was held Tuesday morning, January 17, at 10 o'clock from the
Catholic church, the Rev. Father Shelleberg preaching the sermon. Interment
was in the Catholic cemetery, and a large concourse of sorrowing friends
followed the remains to their last resting place.

Henry Kemper was born in Hannover, Germany on August 15, 1822. He came to
America when quite young. He was married to Mrs. Elizabeth Vosberg in West
Point, Iowa, when 23 years of age. Seven children were born to this union.
They are Mrs. Frank Hatke, Joe and Louis Kemper, Mrs Katie Gaspar, Mrs.
Minnie Dunnuck, Mrs. Phena Gaspar and Mrs. Lizzie Callender. The seven
children, with the widow, survive.

Mr. and Mrs. Kemper moved to this county in the year 1869 and preempted a
homestead, living first in a dug-out, and undergoing all the suffering and
privations of pioneer life. The lumber for their first house was hauled
from Waterville which was the nearest trading post in those days.

Hard work and determination to build a home for his children characterized
the early manhood of this sturdy pioneer who has just been called from
life's stage, and he lived to see a successful fruition of those things to
which his early life was devoted.

(notice the name surname Callender also - sh) Wonder if she is a sister to Isabelle Callendar who wed William Jasper, brother of Egbert.
