Johnson, Hans (1 SEP 1854 - 14 AUG 1913)

On Thursday, Aug. 14, 1913 occurred the death of Hans Johnson, at the home of his brother Andrew, on the West Side. He was born in Ness, Hedermarken, Norway, Sept. 1st, 1854, and was fifty-nine years of age at the time of death. Deceased came to this country in 1885 and located at Blanchardville, where he worked in a blacksmith shop until coming to Greenwood, Clark County, Wis., about ten years ago. He was a bachelor and made his home with his only brother Andrew. He was always a strong healthy man and did not know what sickness really was until April of this year, since which time he has gradually failed with cancer of the stomach. All modern medical science could not help him in his affliction. His only remaining relative is his brother Andrew.

Funeral services were conducted by Rev. A.B. Dyre at two o’clock Saturday afternoon from the Presbyterian Church and the body interred in the Greenwood Cemetery.
