    • THE PIERZ JOURNAL - November 11, 1909 - John Otremba Dead
      -------------------------------------------------------------------------- ---
      John Otremba passed away yesterday morning at five o'clock after an illness of about a year. The direct cause of his death was dropsy.
      The deceased was born in Falkenberg, Reg. Bez. Oppeln, Schlesien, Germany, June 20, 1831. Mr. Otremba's first wife died in Germany and after marrying the second time he moved with his family to America. Soon after coming to this country in about 1869, Mr. Otremba took up the homestead about a mile west of this village which he occupied until his death.
      Mrs. Otremba died a few years ago and of their ten children, seven remain to mourn his death: Mrs. Jacob Neisius and Mrs. John Dombovy of this village, Mrs. Theodore Stumbf of Agram, Carl Otremba who moved to North Dakota a few years ago; and Frank, Joseph and August all of whom are well-to-do farmers living in this vicinity. Besides these there are 57 grandchildren and 7 great grandchildren residing in this locality.
      In the death of Mr. Otremba, this community has lost one of its oldest residents and a man who at all times was a good neighbor and held in the highest esteem by all who knew him.
      The funeral will be held on Friday at 10 o'clock a.m. at the St. Joseph's Church, Father Steigler officiating.
