Lantz, Peter F. (13 Feb 1833 - 16 JUN 1910)

Peter F. Lantz died at his home in this village (Thorp, Clark County, Wis.) on Thursday, June 16, 1910, after an illness extending over a long period of time. Mr. Lantz was born in Metz, Germany, Feb. 13, 1833, and was therefore 77 years, 4 months and 3 days of age. He came to this country with his parents when but five years old, the family settling at Detroit, Mich. In 1855 he was united in marriage with Mary J. Sheldon, who, with four sons, P. A. Lantz of Grand Rapids, Mich., George F. Lantz of Minneapolis, Walter A. Lantz of Chicago, and Bradley E. Lantz of Eau Claire, survive him. Mr. Lantz was a veteran of the Civil War and was a member of Co. D. 24th Michigan Volunteer Infantry. In 1882 he came to Clark County, Wis., settling on a farm near Longwood, where he resided until his removal to this village about ten years ago. Mr. Lantz was kind and generous to a fault, beloved by his neighbors and friends whose sincere sympathy is extended to the aged wife and sons. The funeral took place on Sunday afternoon, Rev. J. B. Bachman officiating, interment taking place in the Thorp Village Cemetery.
