Kobs, Tena (JAN1838 - 8 MAR 1917)

Mrs. Carl Kobs passed away at her home west of this village Thursday forenoon, March 8, 1917, at 11 o'clock, at the age of 79 years and two months. Dropsy caused her death.

Tena Krause was born in Germany in 1838. She lived with her parents and was married to Carl Kobs in that country. In 1860 they immigrated to this country, to Wausau, and settled on a farm in Fond du Lac County. They were among the first settlers in that county. After nine years of hard work they purchased a farm in Brillion town, where they resided 37 years. They had nine children, seven of who survive.

Mrs. Kobs was a kind neighbor and an industrious and good-hearted wife. She is survived by her husband, one brother, John Krause, and one sister of Neno, four sons, Albert, Ernst, Carl and August; three daughters, Mrs. Wm. Balke of Abbotsford, Mrs. Henry Gosse of Curtiss, Clark County, Wis., and Mrs. Carl Riemer of the town of Rantoul.

The funeral took place Monday afternoon from the Reformed Church at Potter, with interment in the Lutheran cemetery west of this village (Hilbert Favorite)
