Dangers, Burghard (1814 - 3 DEC 1914)

Burghard Dangers, one of Neillsville’s most prominent citizens, died at his home in this city (Neillsville, Clark Co.) Thursday morning, Dec. 3, 1914, after a long illness from cancer of the liver.

Mr. Dangers was born in Mandelsloh, Germany in 1814, and came to this country with his parents when an infant. He was married in 1867 to Miss Helen Van Frankenburg at West Bend, Wis. He was in the mercantile business at Newberg and Adell till 1883, when he moved to Neillsville and entered the mercantile business here, in which he continue most of the time till his death. While devoting to his business all the time and energy required to insure its success, he was always public spirited and interested in the welfare of the community. He was a rare combination of a business man of ability and a cultured gentleman; one who knew and appreciated the finer things of life, the beauty in art and music and all that goes to minister to the aesthetic sense. He loved his home and family and enjoyed domestic surroundings. His courteous manner, his integrity and uprightness and all the qualities that go to make the good citizen gave him a high standing in the community, and a helping factor in its development.

He leaves to mourn his going, his wife and six children, namely Mrs. F.J. Eppling and Mrs. T.E. Brameld of Neillsville; Mrs. B. P. Churchill of Milwaukee; Mrs. C.H. Kircher of Ogden, Utah; and two sons, Walter and Fred of Neillsville. Three children are deceased. He leaves also two sisters, Mrs. A. Lauber of Union Grove and Mrs. Braatz of Wausau. All the absent children reached home before his death.

Besides the relatives named above there were present at his funeral Mr. and Mrs. E. Van Frankenburg of West Bend, Mr. Lauber, Raymond Turner of Norway, Mich., Fred Eppling from Sheboygan.

Burial took place Sunday afternoon, funeral services in English being held at the home and German services following in the Lutheran Church, of which deceased had long been a member. Beautiful music was rendered by a male quartet, and the great bank of flowers testified of the love and sympathy of many friends. Four sons-in-law, a grandson and a brother-in-law acted as pallbearers.
