Funeral services for Ferdinand E. Hachez, 85, former resident of New Holstein, who died Sept. 25 at the home of his daughter, Mrs. Edward Kelm of Grand Rapids, Minn., were held last Wednesday at 2 p.m. from the Turner Hall with the Rev. A. G. Schmid officiating. Burial was made in the local cemetery.
Mr. Hachez was one of the few charter members of the New Holstein Turnverein having belonged to the organization since its inception in 1867.
Pall bearers at the funeral included former friends and associates, George Schroeder, George Leverenz, Henry Libke, Herman Heft, Edward Funke and Diedrich Schaar.
Mr. Hachez was born in Alsace Lorraine, France, April 10, 1848, a son of Mr. and Mrs. Ferdinand Hachez Sr. He came to America in 1852 with his parents who located on a farm two miles northeast of New Holstein. He grew to manhood as a pioneer of this community and was one of its few remaining early settlers.
In June 1869, he was united in marriage to Miss Elizabeth Boie of New Holstein. They resided on a farm for a number of years and later lived in this city. After the death of his wife on March 6, 1919, Mr. Hachez resided with his daughter, Mrs. William Luehr of Manitowoc until her death. He then returned to New Holstein and resided with Mr. and Mrs. Ferdinand Matzen for three years. The past ten years he spent in the homes of Diedrich Schaar of this city, and his daughter, Mrs. E. Kelm at Grand Rapids.
Survivors include one son, Louis, Spokane, Wash., and two daughters, Mrs. Stephen Price, Louisiana, Mo., and Mrs. Ed. Kelm of Grand Rapids, Minn. Six sons and daughters preceded him in death.
NOTE: Ferdinand E. Hachez arrived in New York in July 1854 with his parents Ferdinand H. Hachez and Louise Hachez, according to his naturalization document. Naturalization and census records state that the elder Hachez husband and wife were born in the Hannover region of Germany, while the younger Ferdinand was born in Holstein, Germany. The reference to Alsace-Lorraine in the obituary is thought by family to refer to the home area of the Hachez family before the French Revolution when they moved to Germany.
