Austin H. Tucker, a resident of Lodi for eight years, died at his home in this village at one o’clock Wednesday morning Aug. 17, 1921, surrounded by his loved ones. He had been in failing health for about 12 years. Two years ago he took treatment for nine weeks at a sanitarium at Waukesha, during the past year he was obliged to remain in the house most of the time. For several months preceding his death he was confined to the bed and suffered a great deal. At the time of his death he was 73 years, 2 months and 20 days of age.

Mr. Tucker was born May 28, 1848. At about 14 years of age the family moved on to a farm near Plymouth, Wis. On July 4, 1871, at Greenbush, Wis. he was united in marriage to Anna M. Butler. Two years later they moved to Whitehall, Wis., where they resided for 7 years. For 22 years they lived on their farm near Granton, Clark County, Wis. After 4 years residence at Marshfield, they moved to Lodi in 1913, where he resided until his decease.

He was one of eight children, all of who preceded him in death except one brother. Five of his brothers were in the service of their country during the Civil War, the oldest brother while fighting for the Union was taken prisoner by the Rebels and died of starvation in Andersonville Prison.

Mr. Tucker was a man of industrious habits, of upright life and of a beneficent and kind disposition. During the most of his active life he followed the occupation of farming, for 4 years engaged in cheese making.
