Living in Brainerd in 1892.
Note: See the marriage record image to the right where he signs his name as Cornelius G. Poppenberg. All references cited below to the name Conrad are INCORRECT.
A new machine shop will be opened by C. G. Poppenberg in the building recently moved onto 7th street just south of the post-office. The gentleman has just returned from the cities below, where he purchased his machinery and will be prepared in a few days to attend to all work in his line. The business is one that ought to pay in Brainerd. (Brainerd Dispatch, 29 October 1897, p. 8, c. 2)
On Tuesday morning, Oct. 10th, a very pretty wedding occurred at St. Francis Church, at which time Con. G. Poppenberg, son of Mr. and Mrs. H. Poppenberg, was united in marriage to Miss Lottie Sabin, Rev. Fr. Lynch performing the ceremony. Henry Poppenberg and Miss Mary Corrigan attended the couple. Following the ceremony a wedding breakfast was partaken of at the residence of the bride's parents, Mr. and Mrs. Bert. Sabin, corner of 9th and Fir streets. The couple left on the noon train for their future home at Little Falls. Hosts of friends in this city and elsewhere tender congratulations. (Brainerd Dispatch, 13 October, 1899, p. 8, c. 4)
DEATH REMOVES CON. POPPENBERG
He Succumbed at the N. P. Sanitarium Last Evening After a Brief Illness.
It would seem as though Brainerd has more than its share of affliction these days, for it is seldom that so many deaths have occurred with a short space of time. The last to be added to the list of the dead was Conrad [sic] Poppenberg, who passed away last evening about 7 o'clock at the Northern Pacific Sanitarium where he was taken a few days ago to undergo and operation for appendicitis. Both before and after the operation was performed little hope was held out to relatives and friends and it was thought from the first that his recovery would be one of the impossibilities, for his case had advanced to that perilous stage when there is very little hope for the patient to pull through.
The young man was taken to the sanitarium on Friday evening and it was deemed necessary, as a last resort, to perform the operation for appendicitis at once. During the night the members of the family were called and it was thought that he would not survive until morning. He revived, however, toward morning and Saturday was considered some better, but it was only a temporary change for he sank very rapidly and all day yesterday death was momentarily expected.
The deceased was the oldest son of Mr. and Mrs. Henry Poppenberg, of East Brainerd. He was 29 years of age and those who survive him besides his parents, three sisters and four brothers, are his beloved wife, Mrs. Lottie Poppenberg and two children. The sisters are the Misses Rose, Kitty and Margaret Poppenberg and the brother Messrs. Henry J., Leo and Willie Poppenberg, who reside in Brainerd, and Matt Poppenberg, who resides at Des Moines, Iowa.
Mr. Poppenberg was a member of the Catholic Order of Foresters and North Star Lodge, I. A. of M., of this city. He had been a resident of this city for many years and was universally liked by all who knew him. He learned his trade, that of a machinist, in this city and has virtually grown up from boyhood in the city and had scores of friends. The funeral services will probably be held on Wednesday morning from St. Francis' Catholic church, and it is understood that they will be under North Star lodge auspices.
THE DISPATCH joins with the many friends of the bereaved family in extending sympathy. (Brainerd Daily Dispatch, Monday, January 18, 1904; p. 3)
