Adrian, Nicholas (1855? - 3 APR 1919)
Nicholas Adrian died at his home in Appleton, Wis. on Thursday afternoon April 3, 1919, as a result of a stroke of paralysis, which he suffered on the preceding Sunday. He had been in poor health for about six years.
Mr. Adrian was born in Freedom, Outagamie Co., Wis. 63 years ago and was one of that community's most respected citizens. He had been in the mercantile business many years and was noted for his good business ability and square dealing. Mr. Adrian also held different public offices and in 1900 was elected country clerk, and performed the duties of the office to the best of satisfaction and a credit to himself. During the past twenty years he has made his home in Appleton, where he made many friends who will miss him. He was quite well acquainted here (Colby, Wis.), having made many visits to his mother and brother and sisters.
He leaves to mourn his death, besides his wife and eight children, his mother, Mrs. R. Shortell, a brother, Peter Adrian, and sister, Mrs. H. B. Eder, all of Colby, and two other sisters, Mrs. Charles Ristau of Kaukauna and Mrs. Julius Wolf of Ashland, Oregon, all of who were present at the funeral except Mrs. Wolf.
The funeral was held last Monday at 9 o'clock from the Catholic Church at Appleton and he was laid to rest in the cemetery in that city.
