Stelloh, Henry (25 AUG 1843 - 26 JAN 1918)

Henry Stelloh died at his home in Neillsville, Clark County, Wis., Saturday night, Jan. 26, 1918, aged 75 years and 5 months. He had been in failing health for several weeks past, but had been about town and able to attend to business until within a short time before his death, which was due to dropsy and heart trouble.

Henry Stelloh was born in Hanover, Germany Aug. 25, 1843. He came to the United States when 25 years of age and settled in Milwaukee. There he was married to Miss Amalia Immisch. They made their home in Milwaukee until 1893, Mr. Stelloh being engaged in the manufacture of sash, doors and blinds. They then moved to Neillsville and settled on their farm in Pine Valley, which remained the family home until last February. Mrs. Stelloh died March 13, 1893. The family of five sons and four daughters all grown to manhood and womanhood survive. The sons are Henry of Milwaukee; Fred, Conrad and Edward in Neillsville and George in the Army. The daughters are Mrs. Anna Mueller of Milwaukee; Emma, Mrs. Wm. Zank; Ella, Mrs. Arthur Stockwell, both of Pine Valley, and Miss Clara Stelloh at home.

Mr. Stelloh was a man of keen intelligence and stern uprightness of character. He stood strongly for the right and trained his children in the ways of honesty and fair dealing. He took an active interest in public affairs and gave strong support to anything that would be of benefit to farmers. He was a fine mechanic, but ook up farming and made a success of it at a time in life when few men can change to a new mode of life. He was intensely loayl to his adopted country, and never missed an opportunity to speak a good word for America and its institutions. He was a helpful member of the German Reformed Church, for many years being one of the elders, but gave liberally to other denominations, and was broadly tolerant in his religious views. He took great pride and pleasure in his home and its surroundings, sparing no effort to make them beautiful and sightly. He was indeed a good citizen.

The funeral was held Wednesday afternoon at the German Reformed Church, Rev. D. Grether officiating.
