Death of Joachim Buchholz

About 2 weeks ago Mr. Joachim Buchholz of the town of Lyndon, while working at a feed cutter met with an accident by which he lost an arm.  Drs. Brickbauer and Bruns found it necessary to amputate the member and from all outward appearances the patient was doing well and the arm was healing very satisfactorily.  On Monday however, Mr. Buchholz suddenly passed away, death, it is thought, resulting from a paralytic stroke.

The funeral was held today from the Lutheran Church in this city, and the Rev. M Schmidt officiated.  The interment will be in the Plymouth Union Cemetery. 

Mr. Buchholz was born in Mecklenburg-Schwerin, Germany, June 5, 1841.  He came to America and Sheboygan County in 1867.  His union with Miss Mary Harting took place on Feb. 5, 1870.  She survives him as do the following children: Mrs. Theo. Johanning, town of Sheboygan Falls; Mrs. Henry Miller, town of Mitchell; William, Henry, Richard and August, all of the town of Lyndon.  Besides these he leaves 14 grandchildren.

Mr. Buchholz was always looked upon as a thoroughly honest man.
