OBITUARY - Cedarburg News issue 03 Jan 1906
OLD SETTLERS DEPART
During the past week two more of the few remaining old settlers of this city have departed from our midst to join the silent majority.
JACOB VOLLMAR died at his home in this town on Saturday noon last (30 Dec 1905), of paralysis, aged 75 years and 9 mo. He has been ailing for the past five years, but has been able to be up and about the house most of the time, until shortly before his death.
Deceased was born at Kurhessen, Germany in the year 1830, and came with his family to America in the year 1867, settling on the present homestead a few blocks north of the Cedarburg Brewery. By trade he was a stone cutter and for many years was employed in the Anschuetz & Co's stone quarries. When his health gave way he was obliged to give up his profession and retire, doing what work he was able on his few acres of land. He is survived by his widow and eight sons, all married with the exception of the two youngest at home. The sons are John of this city, Bernhard, William and Henry of Milwaukee, Louis of South Dakota, Frederich of Freistadt. Ernst and Christian who are at home. The funeral took place Tuesday afternoon from his late home and very largely attended, six of the his grandchildren acting as pallbearers. The services were held at the church and at the grave by Rev. E. G. Strassburger.
