Thygeson, Martin (20 OCT 1849 - 18 MAR 1917)
With the death of Martin Thygeson, another of the pioneers of the town of Hull has passed away.
Mr. Thygeson was born in Denmark Oct. 20, 1849. At the age of 21 years he came to America, making Racine, Wis., his home for some years. He was united in holy wedlock to Miss Marie Thompson Dec. 24, 1874. To this happy union three children were born. In 1877 they came to the town of Hull, Marathon Co., where they resided on a farm until last November, when on account of declining health he resolved to retire, removing to Abbotsford, Wis. He failed very rapidly until relieved by death last Sunday evening. He attained the age of 67 years, 4 months and 18 days. He leaves to mourn him the bereaved widow, one daughter, Mrs. J. A. Young, who resided on the old Thygeson homestead, a son, C. R., residing at Racine, and another son of Proctor, Minn., besides a host of other relatives and friends.
The funeral services, which were very largely attended, were conducted from the Methodist Church in this city (Colby, Wis.), with interment in Colby Cemetery, Rev. A. L. Scherry officiating.
