Zetsch, Frank (11 NOV 1848 - 2 AUG 1934)

Frank Zetsch, son of Ambrose and Justina Zetsche, was born in Saxony, Germany, on Nov. 11, 1848 and passed away at his home in Greenwood, Clark County, Wis., Aug. 2, 1934 at the age of 85 years, 8 months and 20 days.

When nineteen years of age he immigrated to the United States, locating near Milwaukee.

On Nov. 21, 1872 he was united in marriage to Ida Fricke of Newburg, Wis., who preceded him in death on Sept 30, 1921. On May 1, 1874 they moved from Milwaukee and settled on a farm on the 26 Road, southeast of Greenwood, where they resided until 1898, when they sold the farm and moved to this city, where he lived until his death.

He leaves to mourn his death one daughter, Mathilda, Mrs. Thomas Fahey and one son, Robert Zetsch, both of Greenwood, four grandchildren and a host of friends.

Funeral services were held from the home Saturday afternoon, Aug. 4th, Rev. Glenn Shanks officiating. He was laid to rest in the Greenwood Cemetery beside his wife. The services at the cemetery were conducted by the Odd Fellows Lodge of Withee, of which he was a member.

With the passing of Mr. Zetsche, Greenwood loses another of its old settlers who came to this vicinity when it was a wilderness and by their hard work made it what we have today. He will be sadly missed by all who knew him.
