    • Mrs. Wilhelmine Graf, who died in Truman last week at the home of her daughter, Mrs. August Urban, was buried last Friday afternoon from the local Lutheran church, with Rev. H. Heinemann in charge of the services. Interment was made in the Lutheran cemetery.
      Mrs. Graf, nee Tietz, was born on July 16th, 1835 in Friedrichest, Province of Posen, Germany, and at the time of her death had attained the age of 93 years, three months and 38 days. She grew to womanhood in Germany and in the year 1855 was married to Carl Graf, which union was blessed with eight children, one of whom died in infancy. Mr. Graf died in Germany in 1869. Her family grew up in Germany and one by one they immigrated to America.
      Mrs. Graf remained in Germany until 1888, when her youngest daughter immigrated to America and she accompanied her. She came to Minnesota and made her home with her sons in Willow Creek township. Since 1895 she made her home with her daughter, Mrs. August Urban, which family has lived here in Truman for the past eight or nine years.
      Mrs. Graf passed away on Tuesday, November 14th and is survived by three sons, four daughters, 36 grand-children, 37 great-grand-children and three great-great-grand-children, who have the sympathy of the community in their hour of grief.
