Braun, Emil (31 AUG 1887 - 18 JUL 1924)

Emil Braun, youngest son of Mrs. John Braun, fell off from a load of hay about half past two last Friday afternoon, breaking his neck and dying a short time after. The sad accident occurred two and one half miles southeast of Abbotsford on the farm of his brother, Otto, while he was helping haul in hay from the field.

Emil John Braun was born August 31, 1887, on his parents farm a few miles west of the village (Dorchester, Clark County, Wis.) and lived with them until the death of his father twelve years ago, at which time the farm was sold, his mother moving into town, and Emil going to live with Otto. He was 36 years, 10 months and 17 days old at the time of death.

Funeral services were held Monday from the Otto Braun farm home and evangelical Peace Church here, Rev. Bizer officiating, the pallbearers being Clarence Wiedenhoft, Elmer Schrautnagle, August Nagel, Gernet Osterman, Gillen Gyll and Peter Appfelbeck.

Besides his mother, he leaves to mourn his loss, two sister, Mrs. Ben Lewis of Minneapolis and Mrs. John Rau of this village, and one brother, Otto, with whom he was living.
