Charles Bachman, 20 Years at the Church of the Sacred Heart, Passes Away.
Charles Bachman, who, for so many years. has been organist at the Church of the Sacred Heart, on Bryan street, died Saturday after several days illness, with a complication of troubles, and was buried from that church yesterday afternoon. Mr. Bachmann was born at Paderborn, Germany, and came to this country to avoid entering the German army. He was an organist in New York city, and came to Texas with the highest recommendations of two eminent composers. For the last twenty years, he has either been sexton, or organist, of the Church of the Sacred Heart, where he has been held in the highest esteem. He was loved and honored by those in charge, as was evidenced by the funeral services yesterday, in which all the clergy of the city, headed by Bishop Dunne, took part. The Requiem High Mass was held at the church, and Mrs. Philo Pondrom sang a solo, "Calvary." After the services at the church, the body was interred at the Catholic cemetery. The Church of the Sacred Heart has lost a man they can hardly replace. - June 4, 1894, Dallas Daily Times Herald, p. 4, col. 6
