Augustin, John Sr. (4 APR 1853 - 9 APR 1918)
After a continuous residence in the town of Green Grove, Clark County, Wis., for more than thirty-two years, John Augustin Sr., passed away Tuesday morning at his home at Atwood in that town, at the age of 65 years, the cause of death being cardiac failure due to pneumonia.
Deceased was born in Paduhn, Germany, April 4, 1853, and immigrated to the country in 1883, making his home for about a year in Sheboygan Co. On May 27, 1884, he was married to Miss Sophia Marks and immediately afterwards came to the town of Green Grove, where he has since resided, opening up one of the finest farms in that territory.
Besides his sorrowing wife he leaves five children, four sons and one daughter. Of these the daughter, Mrs. Alfred Burkhardt, resides at Thorp, and the four sons, John, Fred, Albert and Ernest, are all at the home in Green Grove.
The funeral was held Tuesday from the Lutheran Church, Rev. Behrendt officiating, and interment was made in the Green Grove Cemetery.
