Joseph F. Kauffman was born near Garden City, Mo., Feb. 20, 1890; died Feb. 28, 1936; aged 46 y. 8 d. In early youth he gave his heart to God and united with the Mennonite Church. He was active in Christian service as long as his health permitted. He had not been in good health since he suffered an attack of influenza in 1921: and his health had failed to such an extent during the past few years that he was an invalid. The immediate cause of death was pneumonia. On April 29, 1909, he was united in marriage to Agnes M. Andrews. At the age of nine years he went with his parents to Kenmare, N. Dak. where he grew to manhood. In October, 1919, he and his family removed to La Junta, Colo., settling on a farm in the Holbrook Valley, where they have resided since.
