Blank, Albert (15 APR 1853 - 22 JUN 1923)

Albert F. Blank was born in Pulmer Co., Germany, April 15, 1853 and died at his home here Friday morning, June 22, 1923, at the age of 60 years, 2 months and 7 days.

He came to America at the age of 12 years and made his home with his sister, Mrs. F. Koepke at Neenah, Wis. On March 2nd, 1887 he was married at Shiocton to Miss Eunice Morris. They came immediately to Thorp, Clark County, Wis. and settled in their home, which has been the family residence ever since. To this union were born six children, Marlyn, Bernard, Ashley, Almeda, Truvia and Eylward, all of whom, with the exception of Bernard, who died in infancy, remain to comfort their mother in her bereavement. He also leaves two sisters, Mrs. Augusta Timn of Ellington and Mrs. F. Koepke of Neenah, and two grandchildren.

He was a member of the Lutheran Church and for 25 years a member of the I.O.O.F. Lodge.

Funeral services were held Monday afternoon from the residence, Rev. Elwick officiating, interment following in the Thorp Village Cemetery.

Among us Mr. Blank always ranked as a kind neighbor and friend, in short he commanded the respect of all as the large attendance at his funeral fully verified.
