BIOGRAPHY: From a letter by Donald Husman to Ilene Jones 26 January 1993. His recollection of information from his Dad is that the Husman's came from the "low country" near the border with the Netherlands. He remembers that Grandma Husman (Susan Dahler Husman) telling that Grandpa came from around Hamburg. Donald has a faint recollection of great-grandma Husman (Anna Gesche Sunderman Husman). He believes that she died in 1919. He said that he doesn't ever remember seeing her standing--she was always sitting in a rocking chair where she could look out the big window in grandma's living room. At that time, grandma lived in the big house two doors south of the Zimmerman Bros. store. As he remembers her, she was rather short and plump. She laughed a lot, always wore a black dress and wore a little white, lace cap with a ribbon tied under her chin. She must have come from Germany because she didn't speak any English that he can remember. He couldn't even remember her name.

Death was due to heart leakage. He had been planning to leave the farm and move to Mt. Olive in the near future, and had intended selling his entire impliments and live stock at Public sale last Tuesday, but of course his death caused a postponement of the sale. Brunke J.

Aug. 10, 1879 he was united in marriage to Miss Eleanora Husman of Ohlman, seven children being born to this union, 4 sons and three daughters, three sons preceding him in death. He is survived by his wife, one son John, three daughters, Mrs. Otto Egelhoff, Mrs. Charles Egelhoff, and Mrs. Theo. Johnson, also one grandchild and one sister Mrs. Fred Heien of Litchfield. The funeral services were conducted at Zion Church by the Rev. Nottbohm on Monday afternoon and the remains were laid to rest in the Mt. Olive Cemetery.
