Charles Moth long-time resident of the town of Lynn died suddenly at his home Saturday, Dec. 11. He was born in Washington County, Wisconsin, June 7, 1858. He grew to manhood there and came to Clark county 53 years ago. He was married to Caroline Wischuelke of the town of Lynn in 1880. They settled on the farm which has been their home ever since. Mr. Moths went through the pioneer days of the Lynn country developing a fine farm out of the wilderness and helped in the progress of the community. He was a man who had the respect of all who knew him.

He is survived by his wife, one daughter, Rms. Chas. Reisenr, who lives near by and four grandchildren. He leaves also three brothers in Washington county and two sisters in Milwaukee.

The funeral was held at Schiller’s Funeral Home in Neillsville Monday, Rev. Wendell Bennetts of Lindsay officiating. Burial took lace in the town of Lynn Cemetery. The pall bearers were Clarence Chubb, Art Chubb, Ed. Ott, Louie Elmhorst, Harold Capelle and Leo Sternitzky.
