Joseph Helm Engleman

Tuesday, December 31, 1901
Page 3
Engleman - After a lingering illness Mr. Joseph Helm Engleman, of Danville, passed into the great beyond Tuesday evening, aged 65. He had been in declining health for some time, and recently submitted to an operation for appendicitis, from which he seemed to rally with wonderful vitality for one of his years, so much so, in fact, as to stimulate hope of his ultimate recovery, but some days ago he was taken with a severe chill and gradually grew worse until the end came. Mr. Engleman was born in this county and married a daughter of the late Barney VanArsdale. She preceded him to the grave and his second wife, who survives, was Miss Bell, daughter of the late Hon. Joshua F. Bell. Besides his wife six children are left to mourn the loss of a kind and indulgent husband and father. The funeral occurred at his late residence in Danville Friday and was conducted by Dr. E. M. Green. Mr. Engleman was a half brother of Mr. George R. Engleman." Image.
