years of age and the family located near Diagonal, Iowa.
On Jan. 23, 1877, Mr. PACHA was married to Josephine MLINAR. To this union were born two daughters and one son, all of
whom survive their father. They are Mrs. Pauline JONES, and Mrs. Effie KUBART of Atkinson and Adolph PACHA of Stuart. The

and 3 sisters, Joseph PACHA of Pine City, Minn; and Mrs. S. TOMAN, Anton, Mary and Anna PACHA all of Diagonal, Iowa.
Mr. PACHA and his family moved to Holt County in 1883 and settled on a homestead 12 miles southwest of Atkinson. They also
spent about 8 years on a KINKAID Homestead 25 miles southwest of Atkinson, moving back to the home place, where they
lived until Sept. 18, 1924.
On account of the ill health of Mrs. PACHA, they moved to Atkinson in 1924. A year later she passed away, and, Mr. PACHA
then made his home with his daughter, Mrs. Effie KUBART.
Mr. PACHA was well known in Atkinson and community, in fact that was shown by the kindness and sympathy of many friends
during his long illness. His health failed rapidly and his suffering was almost unbearable at times, yet he was calm and
patient until he was called to his eternal abode.
