Deutschlander, Julius (8 FEB 1847 - 1 MAY 1925)

Julius Deutschlander was born on the 8th day of Feb. 1847 in Russian Polen. He spent his boyhood and youth on the farm. At the age of 24 he was united in marriage to Henrietta Kochinscha. The marriage was blessed with fourteen children, of which ten have gone before. When about 40 years old he decided to leave Europe and immigrate to America. In the bloom of manhood he came to America with his family in the year 1887 and settled first in Pennsylvania. For five years he labored there in the coal mines. This work, not appealing to his liking, he decided to seek a home in the forest of Wisconsin. As one of the pioneer settlers of Thorp, Clark County, Wis., he blazed a trail to his present homestead and soon out of the wilderness a blooming farm, through much labor, sprang forth.On this homestead the deceased spent his days of joy and sorrow. As a whole the deceased enjoyed good health, even to his old age. Last fall an ailment came upon him which, coupled with old age, he could not overcome. The deceased brought his life's journey to an end on the 1st day of May 1925. He brought his days to 78 years, 2 months and 20 days. He leaves to mourn, besides his wife, two sons, two daughters, and twenty-three grandchildren.

Funeral services were held at the M. E. Church on Monday afternoon, Rev. A. C. Stapel officiating, interment following in the Thorp Village Cemetery.
