Obituary provided by M. Jensen Seggerman

KOEHLER, BARTHOLDóBarthold Koehler was born in Galena, Ill., October 16, 1865. He died at his home in Geneva, Neb., December 9, 1926.

He was one of a family of nine boys and two girls, all of whom lived to maturity. He moved with his parents to La Mars, Ia., in 1876. Here he grew to young manhood. In 1885 he came to Nebraska and was employed by an uncle and brother at different points. He located at Geneva in 1894. He was first associated in business with his brothers. After the death of his older brother, he took charge of the business which he has since controlled.

All during his residence in Geneva he has been deeply interested in civic affairs. He held the office of mayor, and has worked on the library and county fair boards and has been active in Red Cross work and in the building of the new congregational church, to which he belonged.

In October, 1896, he was married to Miss Clara E. Hoover of Blue Hill, who with three sons and a daughter, survive him. He leaves also two brothers and two sisters, all living in Iowa, except one sister, who lives in Portland, Ore.

The funeral took place at 3 o'clock Sunday afternoon at the congregational church and was conducted by the pastor, Rev. David Tudor. The funeral arrangements were in charge of the Masonic order. The floral tributes were so numerous that suitable space for all of them could not be found inside the auditorium, and four large baskets were placed at the inside entrances. Members of the P. E. O. sisterhood attended in a body. Interment was in the Geneva cemetery. The Masonic ritual was followed at the cemetery.

The Nebraska Signal, 1926.
