John Brahms was born at
Brunsbuettel, Holstein, Germany, February 6, 1866. When sixteen years of age he came to America and settled at Council Bluffs, Ia., later moving to Pierce, Nebr. on January 24, 1896 he was married to Louise Seimsen. To this union were born ten children, two of whom preceded their father to the Better Land, and the remainder of whom all live close to home. In 1910 they moved to a homestead near Van Tassell and three years later came to Jireh where they have since resided. Several weeks ago Mr. Brahms became very sick and it was decided to take him to the state hospital in Evanston where he could have the best of care. His condition gradually became worse until on Wednesday, July 4, he went on to his eternal rest. Funeral services were held on Sunday, at Jireh, in charge of his pastor, Paul Stengel, of the Lutheran church. The sympathy of the entire community goes out to the bereaved widow and the fatherless children.
