The second obituary does make me laugh a bit. Stating that J.B. was "about 45 years old" and leaves "about eight children". I was beginning to wonder how they came by there information and what exactly they were sure of!
"Mr. Joseph B. Hermans, one of the most prominent farmers in Red River died last Sunday from a stroke of apoplexy. He was well up to a few moments of his death, and died almost without warning. He was 47 years old, and a highly respected man. He was buried on Tuesday from the Catholic church at Walhain, Rev. Fr. Van Huyster officiating. He was a native of Belgium, and leaves a wife and a large family of children."
