From The Cedarburg Weekly News (Ozaukee County)
Wednesday, August 28, 1889
DIED at the city of Cedarburg on Friday morning last, the 23d inst., CAROLINE, wife of Mr. C.W. Lehmann, in the fortieth year of her age. The deceased was born in this place on the 5th day of March, 1850, and was a daughter of the late Conrad Horneffer and Mary his wife. She was married on the 2nd day of May 1870, leaving a husband and three children surviving her, one daughter of 16 years and two boys 18 and 7 years old respectively, to mourn her loss.
The deceased was highly esteemed in this community where she was born and raised, for her gentle manners and the devotion she entertained for her loving husband and children; her loss will be sadly felt by them and by the large circle of relatives and friends. She always enjoyed good health until about the end of May last, when a distressing cough set in, the forerunner of that fell destroyer, consumption, which took her young life away in less than three months from that time. During her sickness she was mostly confined to her house and part of the time to her bed without much physical suffering until she breathed her last surrounded by her family and nearest relatives. The funeral took place last Sunday at 3 oclock P.M. and was very largely attended by relatives and friends from abroad and from here. May mother earth prove a light covering to her.
