      Obituary: The Canova Herald Thursday, April 23, 1925
      “Wm Stangohr, Pioneer of State, Died Sunday
      Wilhelm Stangohr died Sunday afternoon, April 19, 1925 at 3:50 p.m. at his home a mile northeast of Canova after a short illness. A cancer with which Mr. Stangohr had been troubled for some years was the cause of his death. He was up and about until a week before his death and the annnouncement of his death came as a shock to his many friends, few of whom realized that he was seriously ill.
      Wilhelm Albert Franz Stangohr was born in Pritzig, Rumelsburg, Pommern, Germany, on November 16, 1858, the son of Otto and Johanna Cobal Stangohr. Mr. Stangohr served three years in the German army, receiving his honorable discharge in 1882. He came to America in 1883 and settled at Sioux Falls. He lived on a farm near there until 1892 when he removed to a homestead six miles east of Canova which remained his home until six years ago when he moved to the farm northeast of Canova where he died.
      Mr. Stangohr was married to Caroline Voelsch at Hartford on November 4, 1887. To this union were born thirteen children, of whom twelve with the mother are still living: Mrs. Fred Weld of Salem, Mrs. Jas. Schwader of Howard, Mrs. Wm. Moschell of Roswell, Will, Joe, Fred and Ernest of Winfred, and Frieda, Albert, Frank, Vera, and Ida, at home. One daughter, Mary, died about a year ago. Also his parents and five brothers and one sister have preceded him in death.
      Mr. Stangohr was a member of the Deutsch Kriegs Verein, an organization composed of former German soldiers, and also a member of the Howard German Lutheran church.
      Mr. Stangohr was a good hearted, good natured man, who always had a friendly greeting for everyone. He was ready to help those in need and was a good neighbor and a true friend. In the home he was a kind husband and father. He was one of the pioneers of this country and helped with others to build up this state. When he moved closer to Canova he built himself and family a fine comfortable home but lived to enjoy it but a few short years. There are many friends who will shed a tear of sorrow at his departure and all will hasten to extend their sympathhy to the bereft family.
      The funeral was held at the home Tuesday afternoon and burial was in the Canova cemetery. Rev. Walter Nitscke of Howard conducted the services. Mr. Stangohr’s six sons acted as pall bearers.
      Those from a distance who attended the funeral were: Mrs. John Lowell and son, George, and Mr. and Mrs. Chas. Voelsch of Sioux Falls, Fred Dahse and son, Clarence, and Elmer Terrio and Will Carls of Hartford and Wm. Munske of Salem, Oregon.”
