Ferdinand Singstoeg died at the home of his daughter, Mrs. Fred Geffers in Oshkosh, on Friday, Nov. 15, 1919, after a brief illness.

Deceased was born in Germany Jan. 21, 1838, and married Miss Caroline Wilhelmina Gronau in Nov. 1865. In 1872 they came to America and settle at Oshkosh, Wis., but six months later purchased a farm at Reedfield, where he lived until 1902 when he came to live in the town of Colby, Clark County, Wis., which was about a year after his wife died.

Sarah, I went back to the old Colby Phonograph and Singstoeg is the way it is spelled there. I will add Singstock to the surnames list for the obituary so that anyone searching on the Singstock name will find this obit.
