Amherst Man Had Been Invalid For Nearly Half Century


Funeral services were held Monday afternoon at the Lutheran church for Herman Lammers, one of the earliest settlers in this vicinity, who died Friday, December 24, at the home of his brother John, near Ovid, Colorado. Interment was made in the Amherst cemetery.


About three months ago he fell from his wheel chair injuring his shoulder and was confined to his bed until a short time ago, when he decided to spend a few weeks with his sister, Mrs. Otto Fulscher, in Holyoke. Only a few days before his death, he went to Ovid to spend a few days with his brother. In early boyhood he had been injured which left him an invalid, forty-seven years of his life being spent in a wheel chair. Being in this condition, he had suffered for many years with indigestion and other complications of diseases which were the cause of his death.


Herman Lammers was born August 25, 1875 at Eckley, Iowa and was the son of Sientje and Hilke Lammers.

When he was three years old he came with his parents to Sterling, Nebraska where they lived for seven years, then he accompanied his parents to Gothenburg, Nebraska. In 1899 he came with his parents to Phillips County, Colorado settling on a farm near Amherst.


Many times he related interesting stories of some of the hardships the early settler had to battle in those days. One of those was of how they had to drive for miles in search of drinking water. In 1906 he returned to Sterling, Nebraska with his parents, remaining there until 1914 when they came back to Colorado, making their home in Amherst where he spent the remainder of his life.


His mother preceded him in death in 1924 and his father in 1935, and since the death of his father his one and only wish was that the Lord might have mercy on him to let him join his parents in eternity. He spent his leisure time in reading, and his favorite book was the Bible.


With all the afflictions he had, he was always kind and patient, and was loved by all who knew him. He leaves to mourn his departure three brothers, George of Amherst, John of Ovid, and Bert of Longmont, Colorado and three sisters, Mrs. Otto Fulscher of Holyoke, one sister in Illinois and one living in Nebraska and a host of other relatives and friends.
