For some time past he made his home with his granddaughter Mrs. Jos. Horhled. Over a year ago he met with an accident which so crippled him that he has been in invalid until his death.

He was an industrious, honest man and well like by all who knew him. He leaves two daughters, Mrs. Gus. Spaete of Washburn and Mrs. Robert Jacob of Weston. Also 4 grandchildren and one great-grand-child. The funeral was held Wednesday at the Reformed church in Neillsville, Rev. D. Grether officiating.
