Weitzman, Julius (30 DEC 1846 - 15 NOV 1915)

Died at the Marshfield Hospital of ulcers of the stomach, on Monday Nov. 15, 1915, Julius Weitzman, aged sixty-eight years. Interment was made at the Lutheran Cemetery at Stetsonville Thursday afternoon, Rev. Hillermann of Medford officiating, E. J. Fuchsgruber conducting the funeral.

Mr. Weitzman was born in Germany Dec. 30, 1846 and came to this country while still quite young. He came to this community (Dorchester, Clark County, Wis.) shortly afterward and bought a farm, on which he has lived until his death. He leaves to mourn him a wife and seven children.

He was a man of generous impulses and never forgot the hospitable ways of the pioneer. The stranger, even though a beggar, never failed to find food and shelter if he sought it at his hands, and he was at home by the bedside of the sick and delighted in all kinds and neighborly offices. He had born adversity bravely and enjoyed prosperity quietly. He had filled the various relations of life, as son, husband, brother, friend, and filled them well. Who can do more?

People from a distance who attended the funeral were: Mr. and Mrs. George Meyers of Coleraine, Minn., his son, Ernst of Fifield and Mrs. John Zastrow.
