text of obituary:


Winesburg, Ohio — Funeral services for 15-year-old Nelson Kauffman, who died as the result of a motorcycle accident, were held at the Pleasant View Conservative A.M. church Aug. 2. Freeman Hochstetler, Mose Miller and Harry Stutzman officiated.

The youth, son of Vernon Kauffman, was riding a borrowed motorcycle which somehow got out of control and struck a bridge abutment, throwing him 30 feet into a creek. A motorist saw the accident and took him to the hospital, where he passed away.
