The Soldier Clipper, Wednesday September 18, 1929

John Nuzman, son of Fredrick and Mary Nuzman, was born September 12, 1844, at Mecklenburg, Germany, and died at the home of his daughter, Mrs George Hays, in Manhattan, Kansas, September 10, 1929. He came with his parents, two sisters and three brothers to America in 1856 settling first at La Porte, Indiana, and then in 1860, coming to Kansas, they located on a homestead two miles west of Soldier.

He was married December 20, 1871 to Kate Metcalf. They established their home at once on the farm near by that he previously had bought from his brother, Fred, who had homesteaded it. Eleven children were born to them. They are Ed Nuzman and Mrs. Nina Hays, of Manhattan; Frank Nuzman, of Lawton, Oklahoma; Luie Nuzman, now deceased; Mrs. Elma Worral, of Kiowa, Colorado; Thomas Nuzman, of Lookeba, Oklahoma; Mrs. Leona Siple , now deceased; Fred Nuzman of Soldier; Earl Nuzman, Hysum, Washington; Mrs. Nell Bell, Bellington, Washington; and Warren Nuzman, of Filer, Idaho. There are fourteen grandchildren and five great-grandchildren. In the Civil war, August 20, 1862, he enlisted in Company B, 11th Kansas cavalry and served till August 31, 1865, and after this for three years was in campaigns against the Indians. He afterwards was much devoted to the G.A.R. Of late years his special care of was the graves of his comrades. When the old battle flags were removed from the State House to the new Memorial Building in Topeka, John Nuzman was the old soldier designated to carry these flags. Mr. Nuzman took a live interest in the welfare and enterprises of his community. For more than forty years he was a member of the Methodist church. He was a charter member of the Masonic lodge of Soldier. He served his community and political party in positions of responsibility. For sixty years he was one of the most prominent figures in community life. Mrs. Nuzman died in 1927. His three brothers were union soldiers in the civil war; one of them Charles, still lives. He is ninety years age and resides in Idaho.
The funeral service was held in the Soldier Methodist church on September 13. Rev. Whittlesey and Rev. Mayfield officiating, the latter, a long time friend, preaching the sermon. On the platform also were P. H. Reed, Union Army comrade and R.B. Brooks, Confederate veteran. The Masonic and Eastern Star lodges attended. The burial was at the Soldier Cemetery, the Masons having charge there. Taps were blown by Lyle Sproul, Boy Scout bugler, other Scouts stood by at salute, and Comrade Reed held the old G.A.R. Post flag over the grave.

"Thus was laid away the last one of the Union veterans of the town of Soldier."
