- OBITUARY -
Suspension Bridge Journal, 28 April 1911
      Adam Kammerer, one of the best known business men of the north end of the city, succumbed to a stroke of apoplexy at his home, Ontario avenue and Fifteenth street, about 4 o'clock yesterday afternoon. He was a native of Germany and moved to this country when a child. He is survived by a widow, his aged parents, and seven children. Mrs Charles Woolcock, Mrs August Vorwerk, Mrs Fred Hartwig, the Misses Helen and Marie Kammerer and Carl of this city and John B Kammerer of Albany. The funeral will probably take place on Sunday. Mr Kammerer was born in Bieblenheim, Hessen, Darmstadt, Germany, September 21, 1849. With his parents, John and Elizabeth Kammerer, who live in Lockport street, he came to this country in 1851 and for five years resided in New York city. He was married November 28, 1876, to Ursula Weiler. Mr Kammerer was a member of the volunteer firemen, was one time a trustee of the village of Suspension Bridge, and also served as a supervisor many years ago. When a young man he was a car inspector for New York Central railroad, remaining with the road for 14 years. Later he was with the Erie railroad and for a time worked across the river. A serious injury to his eyes necessitated his giving up railroading and he entered into the hotel business in Ontario avenue where he made his home. He was a member of Niagara Falls Lodge No 81, IOOF, and was one of the best liked men in the fraternity. Mr Kammerer was devoted to his family. For some time it was known that his heart was weak. For several days he had been busily engaged in trimming his garden. Yesterday he was working near a rosebush when he was stricken. He was carried into the house and Dr Talbot was summoned, but there was no hope. Coroner W A Scott was called and pronounced the cause of death to be apoplexy. Mr Kammerer is also survived by the following brother and sisters: Mrs. Fred Borth and Mrs George Barnett, Buffalo, Mrs. O Young, Mrs. Louis Eimer, Mrs Albert Hoffman and Mrs Charles Ford, this city, Mrs C Frank, Devil's Lake, ND, and J A Kammerer, Toronto, Ont. He was a member of Zion Lutheran church. Four grandchildren, Elsa and Fred Vorwek [sic], and Marion and William Wolocock [sic], also survive. Funeral will be held from the family residence at 2 o'clock Sunday afternoon and at 2:30 from Zion Lutheran Church, the Rev Herman Brezing officiating. Burial in Oakwood Cemetery.
