Braun, Andrew (2 JAN 1856 - 22 OCT 1919)

Andrew Braun, one of Neillsville's prominent citizens, died at Marshfield Hospital Oct. 22, 1919, after an illness which began last January. In July he went to Rochester for treatment and later consulted a specialist in Milwaukee, but received no permanent relief.

Mr. Braun was born in Jefferson Co., Wis. Jan. 2, 1856. He grew to manhood there and was married in 1876 to Miss Gertrude Guttenberg. They moved to Clark County, Wisconsin in 1884 and settled near Loyal as a pioneer farmer. Later he lived in the village and in 1884 moved to Neillsville, which has been his home ever since. For several years past he has carried on large contracts for concrete work and has done considerable work on the County and State road culverts. He was a man of great force of character and was reliable in every way. He was quite a student of public questions and for many years was a leader in local and county politics.

Deceased leaves a wife and eight children: Alois of Loyal; Catharine (Mrs. Ruplinger) of Denver; Elizabeth (Mrs. Brownlee) of Minneapolis; Rose (Sister Claudine) of Spokane; Tillene of Los Angeles; Linus of Minneapolis; Clare of Eveleth, Minn.; Edward of Minneapolis. They were all here except Sister Claudine and Mrs. Ruplinger, who was here this summer. His aged mother is still living in Jefferson Co. and he was able to go to see her several weeks ago.

The funeral was held Saturday at St. Mary's Catholic Church, Rev. Fr. Weber officiating. Burial took place in the Catholic Cemetery at Loyal.

Besides those mentioned above, the following were here from a distance to attend the funeral: J. T. Brownlee and Mrs. Edward Braun of Minneapolis; Mr. Braun's sisters, Mrs. Kroner of Winona, Mrs. Frodl and Miss Elizabeth of Jefferson, Mr. and Mrs. George Guttenberg, Mr. and Mrs. Frank Guttenberg, Mrs. Joe Guttenberg, Miss Anna Guttenberg, Mr. and Mrs. Moser, Mr. John Meyer, all of Jefferson; Mrs. Scheferl, and Mr. and Mrs. Poepel of Marshfield.
