Newbecker, Jacob (1884? - 11 JUL 1920)

Sunday afternoon about five o’clock, Jacob Newbecker, who lived in the town of Levis, Clark County, Wis., south of the city, was instantly killed just north of the Catholic Church in Neillsville, by his automobile turning over. No one saw the accident, but it is supposed that he was attempting to fill and light his pipe and let go of the steering wheel for that purpose. The overturned auto lay across his neck, which was broken.

Deceased was 36 years of age. He was born in Austria and came to this county with his parents, Mr. and Mrs. Joseph Newbecker when he was a small boy. They settled on the farm in Levis about 23 years ago. Here he grew to manhood. He was a good worker, honest and upright and well liked by all who knew him. He is survived by his parents and four brothers, George, Frank, Will and Matt.

The funeral was held Wednesday, Rev. Hasz of Granton officiating.
