Had His Coffin Made to Order

Hans Krambeck, of Brighton Township, Cass County, who died the other day, was probably the largest man in the state, weighing 425 pounds at the time of his death. He was about 60 years of age and came to the United States from Germany in 1867. Mr. Krambeck realized that in the event of his death the undertaker would have difficulty in providing a coffin to order some time ago. The coffin was 6 feet 6 inches long and 4 feet wide and 2 feet in height.
