LAST RITES FOR P.J. HEGEMAN
From the Brookings Register, sometime in September 1923

Col. H.A. Hegeman arrived in the city Saturday morning from the west with the body of his father, P.J. Hegeman, who recently passed away at Pendleton, Oregon. He was met by his brother, J.A. Hegeman, friends of the family and members of the Masonic fraternity, the remains being at once conveyed to Greenwood cemetery where the last sad rites were conducted by Rev. S.L. Hammond of the First Presbyterian church and the officers of Brookings Lodge No. 24, A.F. & A.M., with Worshipful Master E.R. Series in charge.

Mr. Hegeman was an honored member of Brookings lodge and his picture with that of his father and that of his son, H.A. Hegeman, still hangs on the wall of the lodge room, showing three generations of Masons and all members of the local lodge. It was therefore quite fitting that the final rites be said by his fraternal brothers.

The deceased settled on a homestead in Sherman township in 1878 where they lived for some time and then moved to White where Mr. Hegeman engaged in the manufacture and sale of gloves and mittens on a small scale. In 1896 he moved his family and factory to Brookings where he enlarged his field of operations and educated his children, all of whom are graduates of State college.

The Pendleton East Oregonian, in speaking of his death, has the following to say:

Peter Johnson Hegeman [Jr.], aged 74, a resident of Pendleton since 1915, died at his home here yesterday after a long illness.

Mr. Hegeman was born in Mayfield, New York, May 10, 1849. With his parents he moved to Sparta, Wisconsin, in 1864, when he was 15 years of age. On October 9, 1879, he was married to Antha Dolson and to them were born six children, three of whom died in early childhood. In 1877, he moved with his family to Dakota [Territory], where he resided until 1910, when they came from Brookings, South Dakota, to Portland.

Surviving him are his widow, Mrs. Antha Hegeman, three children, Colonel Harry A. Hegeman of Portland, Mrs. Frank E. [Maude Eva Hegeman] Boyden of Pendleton and Mrs. W. F. [Mabel Irene Hegeman] Allison of Seattle; a sister, Mrs. Sarah Hendricks of Chicago, and a brother, John A. Hegeman of Brookings. Seven grandchildren survive also.

In his early youth Mr. Hegeman became a member of the Methodist Episcopal church, later joining the First Presbyterian church of Brookings. On coming to Pendleton he joined the First Presbyterian church of this city and for several years has served on the session of this church. During his entire life his devotion to his church and his Christian living have been marked characteristics.

Funeral services were held at the home this afternoon with Rev. G. L. Clark, pastor of the Presbyterian church officiating, after which the body was taken by Col. Hegeman to the old home at Brookings, South Dakota, where he will be laid to rest beside a son and daughter. Interment will take place on Saturday.
