Kolpien, John (16 JAN 1833 - 19 JUN 1910)

John Kolpien, one of the oldest settlers of the town of Worden, Clark County, Wis., died of dropsy at his home in that town, on Sunday, June 19, 1910, aged 77 years, 5 months and 3 days. Mr. Kolpien was born in Schleswig, Holstein, Germany, on Jan. 16, 1833, where upon reaching manhood he was united in marriage and in 1882 immigrated with his family to this country, coming at once to the town of Worden, where he proceeded to carve out a home in the wilderness. He was a sturdy pioneer and accomplished his undertaking after many years of hard faithful work. For two or three years past disease fastened upon him, his age and general decline bringing on the end. He leaves a sorrowing wife and four children, Mrs. Jacob Grimm of Hamilton, Wis., Otto, Claus and Henry Kolpien, who all reside at the home farm. The funeral took place from the home on Tuesday morning, Rev. W. H. Lahr of Curtiss officiating, interment taking place in the German Cemetery, town of Worden.
