Elizabeth Ann Kinney Bollman, 1831-1906

Seymour Leader – 5 July 1906
  The funeral services of Mrs. Wm. Bollman were conducted at the M. E. church, Jerome last Friday afternoon at 3 o’clock.  Mrs. Bollman was so well known and universally loved and respected that wide spread grief was caused by the announcement of her death.  She was a woman whose influence socially and religiously was always helpful and pure and her death leaves a vacancy that will be felt by the entire community.
  She was born in Champagne county, Ohio, June 4, 1831.  Died at her home 4½ north east of Seymour on June 28, 1906.  Aged 75 years, 24 days.  She moved with her parents to Davis county, Iowa in 1843.  Her maiden name was Elizabeth Ann Kinney.  She was united in marriage to Wm. Bollman Feb. 22, 1825.  To them were born three children, two girls and one boy.  All of the children were present at the funeral services.
  She was united with the M. E. church in 1843 and was a faithful member to her dying day.  When not prevented by sickness she was regular in her attendance.  The large congregation that gathered at the church and followed the remains to the cemetery only faintly expressed the high esteem in which she had been held and the real sorrow at the great loss.  Sympathy is expressed by many for the bereaved husband and children.
