August Klump, one of the prominent farmer[s] residing near the Miles' school, died Wednesday
afternoon at 4:30. He had suffered a complication of grippe and pneumonia since Tuesday of
last week, but apparently was not in a serious condition. His physician had called at three
o'clock and felt encouraged with his condition at that time. Soon after he began to sink
rapidly until death came.
Mr. Klump was twice married, the first wife being Miss Emma Wilt, who died a short time after
marrying Mr. Klump. He afterwards was wedded to a daughter of the late Oliver* Thorp, who
with six small children, 2 brothers and 3 sisters are left to mourn him. He was a son of
Ferdinand Klump and wife who also survive him. Mr. Klump was 47 years old on the 25th of last
October. The funeral will probably be Saturday.
*Correction: Martha Eveline Thorpe, daughter of "Joel" Thorpe
