Lausen, Peter (14 JAN 1839 - 14 SEP 1910)

Died, at his home in this village (Thorp, Clark County, Wis.), on Wednesday, Sept. 14, 1910, Mr. Peter Lausen, aged 71 years and 8 months.

Mr. Lausen was born in Kurburg, Schleswig-Holstein, Germany, on Jan. 14, 1839. He came to this country with his oldest brother in the year 1866, and for many years followed the occupation of cabinet-maker and carpenter in which lines he was an expert workman. In 1868 he was united in marriage with Catherine Margaretha Banderob, who, with three daughters, Mrs. W. Grogan and Mrs. M. Odlaug of Stanley, and Miss Louise Lausen, survive him.

In 1887 he came to Thorp with his family, where he continued to reside until his death. He was a veteran of the war between Germany and Denmark. Mr. Lausen was an honest man, upright in all his dealing with his fellow men, and a kind neighbor, and his bereaved wife and children have the sincere sympathy of the entire community.

The funeral will take place on Friday afternoon, interment in the Thorp Village Cemetery.
