George John Naberhaus 1881-1919

The Carroll Times, August 21, 1919

BREDA- George J. Naberhaus of Early, formerly of Breda, died Monday, August 11 at 12:30 P.M. at Roswell, N. Mexico of tuberculosis with which he had been troubled for the past six months. His condition became very serious about two months ago and he was advised to go west for his health, which he did but all to no avail. Deceased was a son of Mrs. Angela Boeckman of this place and was born April 25, 1881 on a farm north-east of Breda. On Nov. 18, 1902 he was united in marriage to Frances Hoebing and the couple settled on a farm one-half miles north-east of Breda, now occupied by the John Reising family, where they resided until 1918, when they moved to a larger farm at Early, Iowa, where they have resided since.

Deceased was a member of the Knights of Columbus, the Catholic Order of Foresters, and the Roman Catholic Mutual Protective Society. He was a devoted member of the Catholic church, and was and industrious and progressive farmer. His generosity and kindness won him a host of friends here who learned with sad regret of his death.

Besides his wife and mother, he is survived by six children. They are Raymond, Amelia, Anselm, Airmena [Irmene], Cordula and Maryan. Two children died in infancy. He also leaves one sister, Mrs. Frank Nieland, of near Breda, three half-brothers, Ben August and Tony Boeckman, of Breda, and three half- sisters, Mrs. Theo Schulte, of Early, Mrs. Sylvester Roth, of Elgin, Neb., and Regina Boeckman, of Breda.

Funeral services were held Saturday morning at the Catholic church at Early and interment made in the Catholic cemetery at Breda at 11 o'clock.

The bereaved wife and children have the sympathy of all.
