John Andrew Cornman, son of Michael and Susan Corman, was born December 24, 1853, in Center county (sic), Penn., near the town of Bellefonte. He passed away to the Great Beyond October 20, 1924, at the age of 70 years, 9 months and 26 days.
He spent his early youth in the state of his birth and in 1875 he went west, settling near Oneco, Ills. On December 2, 1880, he was united in marriage to Anna Elizabeth Sherbondy at Orangeville, Ills. They came to Nebraska in the spring of 1889 with their family of three children settling in Nuckolls county (sic) near Oak, where they resided until 1918, when they gave up their farm activities and moved to Oak, where he spent the declining years of his life.
To this union were born three sons and six daughters, namely: Kate Joy, Nora Hineline, Michael J., Claude C., Faye Kincannon, Winnie Fletcher, Farmer A., Anna and Pansy Sides. Two of these, Kate and Michael, have preceded their father in death.
Besides the wife, seven children, fourteen grand children, two brothers, Ellis and Emanuel of Bellefonte, Penn., ad (sic) one sister, Mrs. Sarah Hall of Wellfleet, Nebr., survive.
He was baptized and brought up in the Lutheran faith and as a young man made confession of faith in the Methodist church and in his late sickness he renewed his faith and expressed his desire of re-uniting with the Methodist church.
He was a kind and loving father, and a devoted husband and his greatest pleasure was the companionship of his children and grandchildren.
The services conducted by Rev. W.H. Mills of Hampton, and Rev. J.A. Martin of Oak, were held from the Corman residence in Oak on Thursday. Interment was made in Oak cemetery. The final services were largely attended, the deceased being well known throughout the county. The bereaved families have the sympathy of the entire community.
Thou art gone but not forgotten,
We will miss they footsteps often,
And the sunshine of they face.
Peaceful be thy silent slumber;
Peaceful in thy grave so low;
Thou no more shall join our number
Thou no more can skorr know.
Yet again we hope to meet thee
When the day of life is fled.
And in Heaven with joy to greet thee
Where no farewell tears are shed.
