Stelloh, George (1 JAN 1897 - 12 APR 1919)

The funeral of George Stelloh whose remains arrived from overseas Aug. 10th, was held at the at the reformed Church Friday afternoon, Rev. D. Grether officiating. A large number of ex-service men attended the funeral to do him last honors. George Stelloh was born Jan. 1, 1897, on the farm in Pine Valley, Clark County, Wis., and grew to young manhood there. He worked with his brothers in the machinery supply house and in all his work he was industrious, prompt and efficient. He was very intelligent and quick to acquire skill in all kinds of work, and was so accommodating and ready to help that all who met him, held him in high esteem. He was a member of old Co. A. and went with them to the Border in 1916. When war was declared in April 1917 he again responded and served all through the war. As a machine gun man he encountered many dangers and had many narrow escapes, but was not injured. After the Armistice he was stationed with the army of occupation at Coblentz, Germany, where he was taken with the flu and died April 12, 1919. His record is clear; his life was clean and noble. He leaves four brothers: Henry in Milwaukee; Fred, Conrad and Ed Stelloh living here; also four sisters: Mrs. Anna Miller in Milwaukee, and Mrs. Wm. Zank, Mrs. Arthur Stockwell and Mrs. Al Pagenkopf here. The family wishes to express their high appreciation of the help and sympathy received, and especially the kindness and interest shown by their brother’s comrades, also for the floral offering and the music.
