Mr. Langholf passed away in 1925. The deceased is also survived by her mother, Mrs. Sylvester Swartz, two sisters, Mrs. N.C. Sampson, Mrs. George Rogers,Jr., and three brothers, Charles, James and Fred Babb, of Rochelle. Before coming to this city recently, Mrs. Langholf had resided at Harmon for a few years. Most of her life was spent in this vicinity.
