One of the saddest and most unexpected deaths that we have ever recored was that of Mrs. Charles Backman, which occurred at Kansas City, Mo., on Tuesday, February 27, 1894, the cause being from a surgical shock to which she had submitted in hopes of regaining health and being able to remain with her loved ones longer. On the 28th the remains were sent to Soldier.

Reka Nuzman was born in Mecklenberg, Germany, on March 12, 1842, and early in life moved to America, and at the age of 15 years was joined in marriage to Charles Backman ..... She was the mother of six children - four boys and 3 girls - the oldest boy passed away while a child.

The husband and five children and the brothers and sisters are well and favorably known .... Early in the 60's Mrs Backman moved with her husband from Indiana to this section of Kansas .... member of the M. E. church....

Mrs May Camp, of Stanton, Ill., arrived in Soldier Thursday last, to attend the funeral of her mother, Mrs Backman.
