Verweyst, Cornelius (1843? - 6 JUL 1919)

Cornelius Verweyst, for many years an honored resident here (Thorp, Clark County, Wis.), died at the home of his daughter, Mrs. Maurice Huls, at Stanley on Sunday last. Gallstones, we understand, was the cause. Mr. Verweyst had reached the age of seventy-six years. For a number of years he lived in Calumet Co., Wis., where his wife died about twenty years ago, coming to Thorp later where he has made his home since.

He leaves to mourn his passing, his son Rudolph Verweyst and daughter, Mrs. Arnold Vandehey of the town of Thorp, H. Verweyst and Mrs. Maurice Huls of Stanley, daughters residing at Marshfield and Milwaukee, also a brother, Rev. Verweyst of Odanah, Wis.

The funeral took place yesterday from St. Bernard's Catholic Church in this village, Father Neises officiating, burial taking place in the Catholic Cemetery.
