  Notes for Emilie Caroline A. Dallmann:
Obituary, Morgan Messenger, Thursday, 2 March 1927: Mrs. Carl Zamzow Passed Away Sunday.
An unexpected death saddened the home of Carl Zamzow Sunday evening when his wife, Mrs. Amelia Zamzow passed to the Great Beyond. Mrs. Zamzow complained of having the grip for two or three days but it was not considered serious and she was around the house and did her work on Sunday. Early in the evening Mr. Zamzow went to the home of one of his sons to make arrangements to attend the Wm Mueller funeral in Morgan Monday. He returned home and later in the evening was totally unprepared to find his wife seriously ill. She passed away about eleven o'clock. The death came as great shock to the family and relatives and wide circle of friends and acquaintences. The funeral services will be held today. Short services will be conducted at the home, five miles southwest of Morgan, at 12 o'clock by Rev. C. Herrewig. The procession will come to Morgan and services will be held at St. John's Lutheran Church of which the deceased was a member, about 1 o'clock. Interment will be in the church cemetery. Mrs. Zamzow's maiden name was Amelia Dallmann. She was born in Nicollet County on July 14, 1868 making her 58 years, 7 months, and 13 days old. She was the oldest of four children. Her parents, Mr. and Mrs. Ferdinand Dallmann, old settlers of Nicollet County, were well known to many people of this community. Mrs. Zamzow grew to womanhood in the same community where she was born, attended country school, and was confirmed in the Lutheran church while a young girl. On May 18, 1888 she was united in marriage with Carl Zamzow, who survives her. Mr. Zamzow had made arrangements to rent some land here, having worked in the Morgan community before his marriage, and the new home was at once established on the place, which became the Zamzow homestead and where nearly 39 years later, Mrs. Zamzow passed away to Her Maker. She was the mother of seven children six of whom survive their mother. One son Arthur died in infancy. Those living are Henry and Elmer of this community, Alma, Mrs. Louis Juberian of Mankato, Lydia, Mrs. William Engel of Morgan, Elsa, Mrs. George Lange at St. Peter, and Esther at home.
