DEATH Claimed Well-Known Huron Woman in a Cleveland Hospital

Special to the Star-Journal

HURON, O.  Feb. 10. - Mrs. Adam Holzhauer, a well known resident of this place, died Sunday morning at a hospital in Cleveland, where she had been taken last Tuesday to undergo and operation.  An examination of Mrs. Holzhauer's condition shortly after her arrival disclosed the fact that she was suffering with a cancer in the pit of her stomach, making an operation impossible.

Mrs. Holzhauer was 57 years of age.  She leaves a husband, one son, Frank, and one daughter, Emma.  The remains will be brought here this evening and the funeral will occur Tuesday afternoon at 1 o'clock from the Evangelical church.

Another obituary located at for Mary Elizabeth (Haley) Holzhauer, daughter of George J. and Rachel (Gary) Haley, my paternal 2x-great grandaunt.  This one gives the names of two surviving children that I previously did not know.

The earlier obit from the Evangelical Messenger did not give the place of death.  

Her memorial page at FindAGrave is located here.  The names of her deceased children are there as well : Jennie and John.

I've done some preliminary research at Ancestry family trees and it appears that daughter Jennie may have died from suicide.  More mysteries.
