Auburn Courier: Mar. 1, 1915
Lived in Dekalb Co. 79 years
Samuel Husselman, aged 88 years, dies
at the old Husselman homestead.
Samuel Husselman, aged 88 years, one of the early settlers
of Dekalb county and one of the county’s most widely known farmers, died at
7:30 o’clock Sun. morning at the old Husselman homestead four miles north
of Auburn. He will be buried Tues. morning.
Mr. Husselman lived with his son and wife, Mr. And Mrs.
L.D. Husselman. He had been sick but a week, when kidney trouble with
which he was afflicted and the usual infirmities of old age, proved too much
for the aged Dekalb Co. farmer.
Samual Husselman was born in Wayne Co. OH, Dec. 11, 1827, and at the age of
nine years, came with his parents to Dekalb Co. where he has lived ever since.
On Apr. 12, 1853, he married Miss Amanda King, who preceded
him in death five years ago.
Surviving him are four children. They are Mrs.
Jacob Amstutz, of Grant twp.; Adam Husselman, who resides north of Auburn;
L.D. Husselman, who resides on the old homestead, and Mrs. John Monroe, of
Richland twp. The father was a member of the U.B. church at Maple Grove.
Funeral services will be held at the Evangelical church
at Waterloo at 11 o’clock Tues. morning. The friends and immediate relatives
will leave the L.D. Husselman residence at 10 o’clock. Burial will
be made at Waterloo.
