Poppe, Charles A. (4 MAR 1858 - 1 OCT 1928)

After suffering for about four weeks from an illness due to heart trouble, Charles A. Poppe died at his home Sunday evening, Oct. 1, 1928, at the age of 70 years, 7 months and 13 days. He was born in Sheboygan, Wis., March 4, 1858, remaining there till early manhood, when he went to the western coast, later going to Wyoming to be a shepherd. After remaining there seven years he returned again to Sheboygan.

In 1897 he came to Neillsville, Clark County, Wis. to live on his farm in Weston. The following years he married Miss Hulda Marg and together they developed a fine farm.

Mr. Poppe was an honest, industrious man of a quiet personality and had many friends.

Those who survive to mourn his death are his wife and children, namely, Mrs. Ervin Hemp, Mrs. Alvin Meihack, Frances, Clara, Sophia and Henrietta. Also two brothers, Emil of Neillsville, Herman of Sheboygan, and one sister, Mrs. Augusta Schiller of California.

The funeral took place on Thursday afternoon at his home, Rev. Motzkus officiating. He was laid to rest in the Globe Cemetery.

Those from away who attended the funeral were Mr. Herman Poppe and sons, Ernest and Edgar of Sheboygan, Misses Emma and Mathilda and Messrs. Fred and Charles Poppe, all of Sheboygan.
