Kitowsky, John (18 Aug 1841 - 24 OCT 1926)

John Kitowsky was born in Poland, Germany, on Aug. 18, 1841. After passing through school and learning the cobbler's trade at Berlin, he came across and landed in Chicago, Ill., on the 18th day of August, while still of minor. On Oct. 28, 1877, he was married to Mary Hycheck. To this union were born six children: Charlotte, who preceded her father into the great beyond at the age of nine months and three weeks; Nettie, Mrs. George F. Kellogg of Chicago; the twins, Joseph at home and Josephine, Mrs. Joseph Valley, who died at Seattle, Wash., Nov. 2, 1921; Edward of New York, and Theresa, Mrs. M. C. Thomas of Neillsville. In the spring of 1900 he moved with his wife to City Point, where he resided ever since.

He was one of the early settlers and a founder of St Peter and Paul's Catholic Church of Spaulding. He was the last of a family of nine children.. His mother died when he was only two and one-half years old and his father when he was nine. He passed away at his home Sunday morning, Oct. 24, 1926, at 5 o'clock, at the age of eighty-five years, two months and six days, with his wife and both sons at his bedside. Funeral services were held from St. Peter and Paul's Church, Rev. Frank Ciszewski of Wis. Rapids officiating. The body was laid to rest in the village cemetery just beyond the church.
