David, Anton (2 FEB 1855 - 27 APR 1914)

Anton David returned from the hospital at Marshfield on Friday evening last and on Monday morning, April 27, 1914, died at his home here (Thorp, Clark County, Wis.) Mr. David for a period of fourteen years has been a patient sufferer with a sore leg, which of late has been almost unbearable and he decided to have it operated on, which was done but of no avail. He was born in Germany on Feb. 2, 1855, and came to this country with his parents when but a child. He grew to manhood at St. Anna, Calumet Co., and on July 22, 1880 was united in marriage with Miss Margaret Walsdorf. On April 12, 1883 they came to thorp, first settling on a farm, but later Mr. David again took up his work as wagon maker, in which line he was an expert and has been employed at that work for many years at Hansen & Zabrarowski's shops. He was a good man, honest, faithful, kind and indulgent, and an exemplary citizen and friend. His death is deeply deplored by a large circle of relatives and all who knew him. He leaves a wife and three daughters, Mrs. John Phillippi of this village, Mrs. Louis Moore of Downing, and Mrs. Lee J. Snyder, also of this village, besides two brothers, Michael and Carl David of st. Anna. The funeral took place yesterday morning from St. Bernard's Catholic Church, Father Neises officiating, interment following in the Catholic Cemetery.
