Koch, Leonard (1869? - 29 FEB 1920)

Leonard Koch, an old and respected resident of the town of Reseberg, Clark County, Wis., was found dead in the bar on the L. Turenne farm in that town on Monday morning last. Mr. Koch had owned the farm in question for about fifteen years, but sold the same last fall to Mr. Turenne. He had been living on the place since selling it and during Sunday night last left the house and went to the barn where he hung himself, the body being found the next morning. Mr. Koch was fifty years of age and leaves a wife and seven children: Mrs. Fred Krause, Mrs. A. Altkoff, Frank, Pauline, Lydia, Royal and Arthur. Short services were held at the home on Wednesday, conducted by Rev. Stapel, and the body was shipped to Pearl City, Ill., and was accompanied by the family, except Mrs. Krause, for burial.
