Joseph "Joe", KAUFFMAN

Obituary: JOSEPH KAUFFMAN DIED AT AGE OF 103 -- Joseph Kauffman, who observed his 103rd birthday, January 11, 1952 and was perhaps the oldest man ever to live in Louisa county, died February 24, at the home of his grandson and was cared for by a daughter-in-law, Mrs. Bessie Kauffman. He had been in declining health for the past two years. Joseph Kauffman, was born in Lancaster county, Pennsylvania, January 11, 1849. He came to Iowa at the age of 21 in 1870 and worked for some years on a farm. Later he owned and operated his own farm northwest of town and also owned for many years the brick business building on the East side now occupied by the Martin Gas Service. He was united in marriage to Mary Ellen Dennis and for some years they lived on a farm in Nebraska, but returned to this community in 1898, which has since been his home. Mr. Kauffman was a kindly man, with a pleasant smile and a cheery greeting for everyone. While not a member of an established church, he told the writer some years ago, that he read the Bible regularly and believed in the Son of God as his Savior. He was honest, upright and until he reached his 100th birthday had only been seriously ill but once in his entire life. He had no rules for his remarkable long life, but lived happily from day to day. He is survived by one daughter, Mrs. Albert Raymond of Columbus Junction and by two sons, E.C. Kauffman of Illinois City, Illinois and Joseph Kauffman of Savanna, Illinois. He is also survived by 19 grandchildren, 20 great-grandchildren and 2 great-great grandchildren, a so many nieces and nephews and other relatives. His wife preceded him in death 40 years age, Funeral services were held at two o'clock Tuesday Stephens News article: Joe Kauffman purchased from Attorney Thomas E. Perry and family have been living. Possession will be given March 1st at which time Mr. Kauffman and his son and wife, Mr. and Mrs. William Kauffman, will occupy the property.

News Article -- ALMOST 100 AND CANNOT BUY COFFEE -- Joe Kauffman, who celebrated his 94th birthday, January 11, and has been a resident of this community almost his entire life, came in to the Gazette office Saturday morning to tell us that for 94 years he could always buy what he had the money to pay for but that morning he had not been able to buy a pound of coffee because he did not have a stamp. Mr. Kauffman says he did not get a sugar book as he does not use much sugar and is making his home with his children and grandchildren, but he did think even at that a man past 94 should by able to buy a pound of coffee.

News Article -- SPANS CENTURY OF LIFE, BUT NEVER GOT USED TO AUTOS!-- Savanna, Ill. -- Joseph Kauffman, pioneer of the Columbus Junction, Iowa, vicinity, is today celebrating a century of life. He is making his home with his son and daughter-in-law, Mr. and Mrs. Joseph Kauffman, Savanna. He was born Jan. 11, 1849, in Highspire, Pa., and attributes his longevity to hard work; he says he's done lots of it. He went to Columbus Junction in 1870 and married Miss Ellen Dennis Feb. 18, 1875. They homesteaded in Nebraska for several years and then returned to Columbus Junction, where they engaged in farming until Mrs. Kauffman's death in 1907. Eight children were born to the Kauffman's, four of whom are still living. They are Clinton of New Boston, Joseph of Savanna, George of Columbus Junction and Mrs. Al. Raymond, also of Columbus Junction. Mr. Kauffman came to Savanna three years ago. The old gentleman has retained a marvelous use of his faculties and just last fall went to Columbus Junction and completed sale of his business building. He still chuckles over the fact that he completed the transaction himself and thus paid no commission to any young whippersnappers. He keeps well informed on current events by reading the daily papers and is also a consistent and regular reader of the Bible. He reads without glasses, though one eye is practically blind. Mr. Kauffman could never get used to the automobile. He bought one a few years ago, ran into a plow, and sold it. The contraption just wouldn't run right for him. A family gathering was held Sunday in the Kauffman home in East Savanna in observance of the occasion, with relatives present from Columbus Junction and Buffalo, Iowa; Rock Island, Thomson, Mt. Carroll and Savanna.

A family dinner will be held in his honor at the Kauffman home next Sunday, January 15th. Mr. Kauffman was born in Pennsylvania, January 11, 1849 and moved to Iowa at the age of 21. He worked for some years on farms in the vicinity of Columbus City, until he was married, when he went to farming for himself. He farmed northwest of Columbus Junction until about 40 years ago and although not actively engaged in farming now for some years, he has always worked and last summer tended a big garden at the home of his son in Illinois. He has excellent use of his faculties and enjoyed splendid health until recently when he became blind in one eye. Mr. Kauffman has three sons, Joe of Savanna, Illinois, George of Columbus Junction, and E.C. Kauffman of Eliza, Illinois and one daughter, Mrs. Maude Raymond of Columbus Junction. He also has 20 grandchildren and 25 great grandchildren. A host of friends here join the Gazette in extending congratulations.

Mr. Kauffman has 19 grandchildren, 32 great grandchildren, and two great-great- grandchildren.

Memories of " Little Granddad " ---- My memories of Little Granddad ( he was a short man and not very big ) start when I was very young. I stayed with my Grandparents frequently and from the time that I can remember he was at Grandpa's farm, especially in the summer time. My Grandparents had a large farm garden and Little Granddad would hoe in the garden every day, even at a 100 years old. He walked with an old wooden cane to stabilize himself and had a small wooden seat that he would rest on in the garden and he had this big straw hat that he wore to protect himself from the sun. I can't remember him helping to plant the garden, but he sure did hoe and he was very fussy about that hoe and would sit and sharpen it with some small hand tool and of course the kids knew better than to touch that hoe. In the evening he would sit by a window and read his Gideon Bible. He had some old glasses that he wore but claimed that he didn't need them! I always thought that he probably didn't need them, he probably had that old bible memorized!! I also remember that he sure did like a bottle of beer and he and Granddad would sit outside in the evening on a wooden bench under a tree and drink a beer. He would be at Grandpa's for quite a while and then he would leave, but before to long he would be back. To me, he appeared to be a happy man and loved a joke. In fact my mother told about him " pinching " the ladies on the bottom at his 100th birthday party. He never talked about his family very much but did say that he came to Iowa with John Haden and his brother Jake. He lost track of Jake and the last he knew of him he was in the middle part of Illinois. Years later the family tried to locate Jake but not find any information about him in Illinois.                        Pat Appel -- April, 2000

Funeral services were conducted at the Methodist church in Bassett, Thursday, September17, by Rev. A. W. Marts. Internment was in Bassett cemetery, where, for a number of years Mr. Biltoft had been the efficient caretaker and sexton.

OBITUARY: Rock County Leader, Sept 17, 1931-- Funeral services for E. Biltoft are being conducted at the Methodist church in Bassett this Thursday afternoon. Mr. Biltoft passed away at his home in Bassett late Tuesday afternoon following an illness of a week. The extreme heat of last week is accountable for his illness, when he was stricken on the streets while in apparent good health. He was one of the earl settlers of Rock county, homesteading on the Elk Creek in the northwest section of the county. Later he acquired larger acreage northeast of Bassett where the family resided for many years. During the last few years of his life he resided in Bassett and was the efficient sexton of the Bassett cemetery. He took great pride in the work of beautifying this plot and, the last resting place of man and his friends. For several weeks prior to his death Mr. Biltoft and wife had planned to celebrate their golden wedding anniversary and he was looking forward to this event wit much pleasure and in anticipation of seeing all the members of the family gathered together again. The date of the anniversary was Sunday, September13 and although he lived to see that date roll away and all his children gathered about him, he was too weak to fully sense the occasion. Erastus and his sister, Anna Biltoft Kaufman, came to America, Landing in May, 1875, Anna had a passport but Erastus came as a stowaway, hiding in an empty pork barrel.
