Zillmann, William (13 MAY 1832 - 15 JUN 1900)

William and George Zillman

(Brothers to Herman, Ed and Richard)

William Zillmann, residing at Manitowoc, father of George Zillmann of this village (Thorp, Clark County, Wis.), and who has visited here annually for a number of years past, died very suddenly at his home on Friday morning last. His son, George Zillmann and family had gone to Manitowoc last week to pay his parents a visit and had arrived there but two days before the unexpected death took place. The day previous to Mr. Zillmann's death he appeared to be enjoying unusual good health and in company with his son George, had spent the day visiting friends, returning home about nine o'clock in the evening, at which time he became slightly ill, but retired as usual, but at one o'clock the following morning suddenly expired. Mr. Zillmann was born in Germany on May 13, 1832, and came to America in 1852, when twenty years of age, settling in Sheboygan, where he resided until 1870 when he removed to Rockville, and about a year ago removed to Manitowoc. He is survived by a wife and seven children, two deceased. Mr. Zillmann had many acquaintances in this vicinity who formerly resided in Manitowoc and Sheboygan counties, who remember him as a man of sterling integrity, honest, progressive and an exemplary citizen.
