Hollman, Frank (4 NOV 1835 - 27 MAY 1925)

Frank Hollman, whose death was chronicled in the Phonograph last week, was born in Schwarzenthal, Austria, Nov. 4, 1835, thus reaching the age of 89 years, 6 months and 23 days. He came to this country in Aug. 1883, and lived on a farm near Stetsonville until seven years ago when he came to this locality. In 1859 he was married to Caroline Bock in Austria, to which union four children were born who mourn his departure, namely: Rudolph Hollmann, Colby, Wis., Alvin Hollman, Colby, Wis., Emma Hansel, Stetsonville, Wis., and Mary Pfaff, Stetsonville, Wis.

Funeral services were held at the catholic Church may 30th, Rev. Lachnit officiating, and interment was made in the Stetsonville Cemetery.

The deceased is another one of the hardy pioneers who came to Wisconsin when this section was still a vast wilderness, and, by hard work and privations, built a fine farm. But now he has gone to his reward, after a noble and useful life.
