Ballheim, Elmer W. (17 MAY 1866 - 31 MAY 1925)

E. W. Ballheim, who died of apoplexy last Thursday morning, was buried in the Colby Cemetery Sunday, May 31, funeral services being held at the Methodist Church, Rev. Lucas officiating.

The deceased was born at Germantown, near Milwaukee, May 17, 1866, thus reaching the age of 59 years, 1 month and 13 days. He was married to Mathilda Stecker at Sheboygan, March 27, 1895, to which four children were born, one son and three daughters, namely: Zula, Gilbert, Rachel and Virginia. Mr. Ballheim moved to Colby, Wis. in 1901, but after several years moved to Greenwood, Clark County, where he stayed for two years, when he returned to Colby, moving on a farm west of the city. After two years, he again left Colby, going to Virginia, but only stayed there several years, when he returned to Colby again, and, after living in the city several years, moved on the farm three and one-half miles southeast of Colby.

The out of town people here for the funeral were F. C. Ballheim of Seymour, Wis., Mrs. Henry Nikel of Seymour, Wis., and Howard Ballheim and son, Ira, of Appleton.

The deceased was a man highly respected by all who knew him for he united sound sense with strong convictions eminently fitted to mould the elements of pioneer society into consistency and aid in raising a high standard of citizenship in our young and growing state.
