FRED HARTMAN DIES SUDDENLY

WELL KNOWN AND RESPECTED CITIZEN SUCCUMBS UNEXPECTEDLY SUNDAY

HAD BEEN AILING BUT A FEW DAYS

Resident of County since 1865 and Freeport for Past Two Years

Death Sunday morning removed one of Stephenson County's well known residents, one who has made his home here for the past half century. Frederick Hartman, 324 Fifth avenue, was called to the great beyond at 4 o'clock yesterday morning. Death came suddenly. His first stroke of paralysis is thought to have caused the demise, as he had been in his usual health during the evening before, being active about the home and full of cheer, making no complaint as to his health. His wife was alone with him at the time of his death. Although he had been ailing for the past several years he seldom has complained, but within the past few days he mentioned to his wife that he did not feel as well as usual. This, however, did not alarm her, and she continued her attention to him. His sudden passing comes as a great shock to a host of friends in this city, and it is regretted by all who knew him.
Mr. Hartman was born January 27, 1845, at Shamokin Dam, Northumberland county, Pennsylvania, being a son of Mr. and Mrs. Henry Hartman. His boyhood and youth were spent in that vicinity, where he remained until 1865, when his parents came west to this county. They settled on a tract of land in Lancaster township, working up a piece of rugged land into a valuable farm. The father passed away in 1870 and the mother twenty years later. The Hartman boys, following the death of their father, were left to run the farm. When Frederick's brother died in 1906, the farm was sold and the subject of the sketch purchased what was known as the Dawson fruit farm on the Henderson road in Lancaster township. He remained at this place with his family until the fall of 1912, when because of poor health he retired and moved to 324 Fifth avenue, this city, which has been his home.
Mr. Hartman was united in marriage to Miss Mary Allen, of Mt. Morris, October 31, 1877. One child was born to the union, Effie, now wife of Leslie T. Fargher.
Deceased was a member of the Second Presbyterian church of this city for a number of years. He was a Christian gentleman and a great lover of home. He lived a quiet contented life, paying attention to his own affairs, and earning a good livelihood. Through hard work he was able to purchase a farm, and he an honest living from it, besides building up a small fortune. Mr. Hartman's lodge affiliations were confined to the Modern Woodmen of America, of which he has been a member for a number of years. He was a life-long republican, but never sought office. He was an honest man and in his death the community loses a valuable citizen.
Surviving him are his wife, one daughter, Mrs. L. T. Fargher, and three brothers, George and Issac of Lancaster township and Samuel of Marshfield, Mo. Two brothers and 5 sisters preceded him to the grave. They were John and Henry Hartman, Mrs. Savilla Griner, Mrs. Elizabeth Gaskin, Mrs. Sarh Byerly, Mrs. Mary Engle, and Mrs. Caroline Snyder.
The funeral will be held tomorrow afternoon at 2 o'clock from the family residence, 324 Fifth avenue. The Rev. Marion Humphreys of the Second Presbyterian church will officiate. Interment will be made in Oakland cemetery. The pallbearers will be R.W. Smith, J.M. Stiffler, J.T. Johnson, Henry Davis, Charles Hutchison and John Rezner. O. T. Smith is in charge of the arrangements.
