Mr Hugo Buescher, son of Mr. and Mrs. G. Buescher and a member of the firm G. Buescher Sons’, proprietors of the Moulton gin and oil works and the waterworks and electric light plant at Smithville, died at the home of his parents in this city on Wednesday evening June 14, after an illness of two weeks, of typhoid fever, followed by complications. He was buried Thursday evening at four o’clock at the old Moulton cemetery, by the local lodge of the Hermann Sons, of which he was a member. The funeral procession was the largest in the history of the town, being about a mile long and consisted of about 140 vehicles. Mr. Buescher was born in Austin county twenty-five years ago [illegible] manager of the electric light plant and waterworks at Smithville and foreman of the Smithville volunteer fire department No. 1. All of the fire boys came down to attend the funeral of their deceased comrade. The bereavement resulting from the death of this young man is an unusually sad one. The deceased was a man of many admirable traits, straightforward and honorable. His loss will be mourned by a numerous circle of friends and acquaintances. Unstinted sympathy for the sorrowing father, mother, brothers and sister, is expressed by all who know them. May his ashes rest in peace.
