THE WESTERN STAR, 3 June 1904
Obituary of MRS. H. C. VOLEMAN
(MARY AMANDA HUGHS)
Mrs. H. C. Voleman
(Mary Amanda Hughs)

On Saturday, May 28, 1904, at her home, in Irwin tp., Commanche co., Kansas, Mrs. C. H. Volkman, aged 46 years, 2 months and 8 days.

Mrs. Volkman had not been in good health for several weeks, but no alarm was felt in regard to her condition until a few days before her death. The immediate cause of her death was thought to be child bed fever. An
infant was born to Mr. and Mrs. Volkman about 8 weeks ago, but the child did not live. The best medical skill in the country was summoned, but Mrs. Volkman gradually grew worse until, at 11:30 p.m. Saturday, death relieved her of her suffering. She was conscious up to within about 2 hours of her death.

Mary Amanda Hughs was born on March 20, 1858, in St. Joe co., Indiana, and on February 8, 1878, was married at Wakarusa, Indiana, to C. H. Volkman. They moved from Indiana to Comanche co. in April 1885, and continued to make this county their home. Two children blessed the union, John Arthur who died about 6 years ago, aged about 19 years, and Mrs. James I. Hall, who lives with her husband at the Volkman home on Kiowa creek.

The deceased was in every sense a good woman and a faithful and loving wife and mother. Her greatest joy was to render some service which would make others happier and better. She was universally esteemed by all who knew her. She had been a faithful member of the Baptist church since her youth. Funeral services were conducted in the M. E. church in this city at 3:30 p.m. on Sunday by the pastor, Rev. C. E. Williams after which interment was made in the Coldwater cemetery. The grief stricken husband and other relatives have the sincere sympathy of all in this, their hour of bereavement.
