Hemp, Adolph (14 MAR 1866 - 18 DEC 1919)

Adolph Hemp died Dec. 18, 1919, after about a month illness from pneumonia, which despite every medical treatment and the best nursing. Adolph Augustus Hemp was born in Arnswalde, Brandenburg, Germany, March 14, 1866. When a small boy he came to this country and has lived in Clark County, Wis. ever since. On Oct. 14, 1889, he was married to Miss Ella Christie. For several years they lived on their farm north of the city, and 13 years ago they moved to Neillsville, which has been their home since. Mr. Hemp was a good farmer and also possessed much mechanical skill. As proprietor of the planing mill he was much liked for his accommodating manner and his ability to do good work. In all his activities Mr. Hemp contributed in many ways to the development of this community and was a most useful man.

He leaves his wife, and one daughter, Mrs. Chas. Neff of the town of Levis. He leaves also five brothers: Fred, Albert, Ernst, Frank and Tony; and two sisters, Mrs. Aug. Wagner and Mrs. Gus Grap.

The burial services were conducted at the Reformed Church on Monday afternoon. The great number present at the services bears a silent testimony to the countless friendships the deceased had made during his earthly sojourn.
