From the Chatsworth Plaindealer

JULY 9, 1897

Death visited the home of Mr. Henry Hummel and family on Sunday, July 4, taking from those to whom they were dear, the wife and mother of the house hold and the youngest child, an infant of about four months.
Seldom does death cast such a universal feeling of surprise and sorrow as did the announcement of the great bereavement which Mr. Hummel and children have been called upon to suffer.
Matilda Froebe was a daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Nicholas Froebe, for many years residents of this community and now living at Fair Oaks, California, and was thirty five years of age at the time of her death. She became the wife of Henry Hummel, and was a woman universally loved and respected by all who knew her. For a long time her health had been poor and her last illness, the mumps, brought her life to a close, as her feeble constitution could not withstand the effects of the disease. The same affliction also caused her infant babe to succomb.
The funeral services were held from the Germanville church on Tuesday afternoon, and the remains of both mother and child were laid to their final rest in the Germanville cemetery. The attendance at the last sad rites was large, many friends of the departed being present to pay their last tribute of respect. The bereaved husband and family have the deepest sympathy of the entire community in their irreparable loss and great sorrow.

JULY 16, 1897

Mr. Henry Hummel and children are, it would seem, suffering more than their share of sorrow. On July 4 Mrs. Hummel and the youngest child were taken by the "grim reaper", and on Thursday last, July 8, Mr. Hummel's little three-year old son passed away from the effects of the mumps, the same malady that had caused the death of the other members of the family. The bereaved relatives have the deepest sympathy of the entire community.
