Cigrand, Nicholas (30 APR 1831 - 3 JAN 1921)

Nicholas Cigrand, who has been living at the home of his daughter, Mrs. H.E. Korman, since Oct. 31st, died suddenly Monday Jan. 3, 1921, death being due to old age. He was born in Luxembourg, April 30th, 1831, and was therefore close to 90 years of age. He came to Oazukee Co. in 1852 and spent the rest of his life there until coming here (Neillsville, Clark County, Wis.) last fall. For fifty years Mr. Cigrand was a Justice of the Peace in Ozaukee Co. and for many years was postmaster of Fredonia. He was a blacksmith by trade and also carried on a small farm.

On April 15th, 1856 he was married at Fredonia to Miss Susanna Schmidt, who survives him. In 1916 they celebrated their diamond wedding at which were gathered a large number of relatives and friends.

Mr. Cigrand was a man of keen intelligence and upright character and had the respect of all who knew him. As the years passed he and his good wife continued to care for their own work until cold weather came on last fall, when they decided to come to Neillsville for the winter.

Besides his wife he leaves to mourn his death six children: Mrs. H.E. Korman, Neillsville; Mrs. M.B. Miller, Fredonia; Dr. Peter J. Cigrand, Chicago; Mrs. W.F. Spraner, Chicago; Mrs. Arthur Spraner, Beaverton, Oregon; Dr. Bernard J. Cigrand, Batavia, Ill. He leaves also 22 grandchildren and 14 great-grandchildren.

The remains were taken to Fredonia Tuesday; the funeral will be held there Thursday at the old home. Masonic services will be held as he was a member of that fraternity.

Brief funeral services were held at the Korman home Tuesday evening, Rev. Longenecker officiating.
