Kottke, Daniel (26 JAN 1840 - 5 FEB 1928)
Daniel Kottke, one of the real early settlers in Dorchester, Clark County, Wis. Country, passed away at the home of his daughter, Katie, near Norwich, N.D., on Sunday, Feb. 5th, 1928, at the age of 88 years and 10 days.
The Kottke family came to Dorchester in the early 70’s and settled on a farm 2 ½ miles west of the village, where they lived many years. About 27 years ago, they sold the farm to Dennis Laughlin, and the place is now occupied by Mr. and Mrs. Otto Schultz and family. At this time they moved to Norwich, North Dakota, where they continued farming until Feb. 5th, 1917, when Mrs. Kottke passed away and Mr. Kottke went to live with his daughter, Katie, and at whose home he has since lived.
Mr. Kottke leaves to mourn his loss, one daughter, Katie, five sons, John, Dan, Jake, Gottlieb and Matt, and one foster son, Emil.
We join with the many old friends here in extending sympathy to those left behind.
