Lindner, John Sr. (29 SEP 1838 - 9 FEB 1915)

Mr. John Lindner Sr., one of the oldest and best known residents of Clark County, Wis., and a highly respected man, passed away in death Tuesday evening, Feb. 9, 1915, at ten minutes to six, death being due to pneumonia, after an illness of nineteen days, at the age of seven-six years, four months and ten days.

Deceased was born Sept. 29, 1838 in Konigsdorf Flatow, West Prussia, Germany, and was united in marriage to Miss Albertine Pobanz on Feb. 1, 1867. He came to America in the Spring of 1871 and moved to Hartford, where the family resided two years, when they came to Clark County, Wis. and settled in the wilderness 3 miles northeast of Loyal. Through hard work he accomplished one of the finest farms of this vicinity, which he sold four years ago and moved to our village, where he has since resided. His wife passed away into the great beyond Nov. 6, 1912, and one son, Herman Lindner, died Jan. 27, 1915. He leaves to mourn his death two sisters in Germany and five children, who are, Miss Anna Lindner at home, Mrs. Hulda Homes of Willard, Wash., Mrs. Bertha Milarch of Fox Lake, Wis., August of this village and John at home. He is also survived by eight grandchildren and many other relatives and friends.

He was a kind and loving husband and father, a sincere friend and a devoted neighbor. His life was spent honestly and industriously, and his memory will long remain in the hearts of all who knew him.

The funeral will be held Friday at 1 o'clock from the home and at 1:30 o'clock from the Lutheran Church, with burial in the Loyal Cemetery, Rev. E. Kemena officiating. The bereaved family has the sympathy of their many friends.
