|Birth: ||Sep. 14, 1858|
New York, USA
|Death: ||May 9, 1910|
Jacob H. Angstman died at his home in Baldwin on Monday morning, May 9, at 12:35 o'clock from cancer of the stomach and liver, aged 51 years 8 months. His death was not unexpected, as it was known that he could not long survive the malady from which he suffered. On March 24 Dr. Cooney made an exploratory incision at the Northwestern hospital to determine whether the cancer could be removed by a surgical operation, but found that the disease had advanced too far. Sixteen days after this Mr. Angstman was taken back to his home in Baldwin, where he was cared for until relieved by death of his suffering.
Funeral services were conducted at the family residence by Rev. Fisher of the Princeton Congregational church on Tuesday afternoon at 2 o'clock and the interment was in the Baldwin cemetery. The funeral procession was over half a mile in length, manifesting the high esteem in which Mr. Angstman was held by the community. The floral tributes were many and beautiful. The pallbearers were members of the A. O. U. W. Lodge, and services were conducted at the grave according to the ritual of that order. Mr. Angstman had been a respected member of that order for years.
The relatives who attended the obsequies from out of town were Mr. and Mrs. Geo Eigenbrodt and child, Faribault: Frank Angstman, Mrs. Herman Otte, Farmington: Chas. Trout, Miss Harriet Trout and Mrs. Emma Strait, St. Paul.
Jacob H. Angstman was born in Oneida county, New York, on September 14, 1858, and came to Farmington, Minn., with his parents in 1862. He lived there three or four years and then, with his parents, went to Aberdeen, S. D., returning with them to Farmington in 1881. He was married on March 14, 1883, to Miss Emma Trout in Castle Rock township, Minn., and after a residence of four years at Farmington, went to Sauk Center, where the family resided 10 years. In 1904 he settled on the farm in Baldwin where he died. He is survived by a widow and 13 children, 11 sons and two daughters. The children are as follows: Walter, Warren, Mrs. Jas Wheeler. Albert, Jess, Lawrence, Forrest, Esther, George, Ralph, Johnny and Ezra, Baldwin: and Maynard, St. Paul. He also leaves a mother and brother, who live at Farmington, and four sisters who reside in various parts of the country.
Mr. Angstman was one of the sturdy farmers who did his share toward improving this part of the country and, as chairman of the board of supervisors of Baldwin township, was unceasing in his efforts to maintain good roads. He was a member of district No. 31 school board and no man ever worked more diligently for the welfare of the young generation. Mr. Angstman was an industrious, honest tiller of the soil who made a success of his calling. He was kind to his family and was esteemed by his neighbors, and in his taking away the town of Baldwin loses a good and noble character and one of its most progressive citizens.
