Charles Jacob Hahn



Charles Jacob Hahn, who died Monday, September 29, at the St. Mary's hospital in Nebraska City, was born May 4, 1872, on a farm one and one-half miles northeast of Johnson. He was a son of the late Henry and Kathrina Hahn.

He was baptized on October 1, 1872. Growing up on the farm of his parents, he attended schools in that vicinity. He was confirmed January 12, 1889 during the pastorate of Rev. A. Meyers.

On the 26th of December 1893, he was united in marriage with Miss Louise Caroline Schmidt. On the 26th of December almost nine years ago, they were privileged to commemorate their Golden Wedding anniversary.

After their marriage they settled on a farm north of Graf and remained there for 8 years when they moved to a farm 31/2 miles northwest of Johnson where they resided for 48 years before moving to Talmage two years ago.

He was healthy in spite of his advancing years, until three years ago when he became afflicted with a physical malady which in the course of time, became at times quite uncomfortable, but yet he endured it all without complaint and through it all he never lost his congenial attitude nor his friendly and neighborly spirit.

He loved his friends and family and was always keenly interested in their wellbeing. He was a very personable individual whose cheerful smile for everyone he met as he walked down the streets was a real tonic to them, especially when one considered his constant affliction, which he bore with enduring patience and Christian fortitude.

 A man withal who was unassuming in his ways, honest and dependable in his walk of life, and thoroughly convinced in his Christian Faith that ones salvation depends upon Faith in the Lord Jesus Christ through the Grace of God. He lived a long life as we count length of life by its years and a useful one too as all who knew him will testify.

He attained the age of 80 years, 4 months and 25 days. He parents, four sisters, and four brothers preceded him in death.

Those who survive are his bereaved widow, with whom he faithfully shared the sunshine and the shadows of life for almost 59 years; three sons, Henry of Johnson, Carl of Talmage, and Willis of Wichita, Kansas, four daughters; Frieda Wellsandt of Talmage, Elsie Zimmermann of Johnson, Tillie Schmidt of Nebraska City, and Lela Renken also of Nebraska City; 11 grandchildren, 9 great-grandchildren, two sisters, Mrs. Emma Schmidt of Johnson and Mrs. Lizzie Coleman of Johnson a large number of nieces and nephews plus many other relatives and a host of friends and acquaintances.

Funeral services were held Thursday, October 2. A family prayer was held in the Casey chapel in Johnson at 1:00 p.m. Church services were held in the Evangelical church in Talmage at 2:00 p.m. Rev. Elmer Jaberg officiated at both services.
