Miss Anna Stamm Dies of Consumption

Anna Stamm, a young lady twenty-five years of age, died Wednesday night at the home of her mother, on Jefferson street. Death was caused by consumption. In company with another family the Stamm’s came from Germany a few years ago. After remaining here awhile the men of the family got together what money they could, and went back to Germany, leaving their wives and children to their fates. They have not been heard from since, and the two families are now in poor circumstances.”

“The funeral of the Stamm girl was held this afternoon at two o’clock, Reverend Schraff officiating.”1
