| August/September 1993

ELMER E. KAUFMAN, 86, of 518 S. Fremont Road, Coldwater, Michigan, died April 29, 1993 at the Community Health Center of Branch County.

He was born March 28, 1907 in Hicksville, Ohio, the son of Karl and August (Wohlman) Kaufman. He married Hazel Quimby in 1932. She preceded him in death in 1962.

Mr. Kaufman was a farmer. He was a member of the St. Joe Valley Old Engine Association, the Yesterday &. Today Threshing Club, and the North East Indiana Steam & Gas Club.

Survivors include son Jimmie Kaufman, granddaughter Sarah Ball, sister Mabel Ball, brothers Raymond and Arthur Kaufman, and four great-grandchildren.

Elmer will be sadly missed at all tractor shows and auction sales as he was always looking for more 'green machines' (John Deeres) and anything old that he thought should be saved and preserved.
