Mohr, Daniel L. (NOV 1851 - 14 MAY 1920)

Daniel L. Mohr, for a number of years associated with the Owen Realty Co., died at the home of this son, Leonard Mohr, one mile south of this city (Owen, Clark County, Wis.), on Friday May 14, 1920, following an illness of about eleven days. For the past five years he had been in ill health, but never so bad as to have to remain indoors. Hew as sixty-eight years and six months old, and was preceded in death by his second wife about five years ago.

Mr. Mohr was one of the early pioneers of Chippewa Co., going to the town of Edson, south of Boyd, in the year 1866, the nearest trading point being Chippewa Falls, and that only could be reached by a trail through the woods. The nearest railroad point when he settled there was Sparta. When locating at Edson, Mr. Mohr settled on a wild piece of land, later entering the mercantile business, which he continued for about eight years, after which he moved with his family to Boyd, where he again entered business for himself. After moving from Boyd Mr. Mohr located at Hannibal in Taylor Co. for a short time and in the year 1913 came to Owen, where he and his son, Archie, opened the Owen Realty Co. office. For six years he was interested in selling of land in this vicinity and his work here was very successful. Some two years ago he withdrew from the land business and about three weeks ago went to the home of his son south of the city to live, and there was just nicely settled when he passed away. His life was one of much usefulness and at all times was a builder of better things and always striving to see the country in which he lived developed.

Funeral services were held on Tuesday from the home of his son, Leonard, Mohr, at on p.m. and the body taken to Boyd, where services were held in the Methodist Church, Rev. W. H. Sargent of this city officiating. Burial was made in the Union Cemetery in Edson.

He leaves to mourn, two brothers, Abe and Sol of Edson, and one sister, Mrs. Katherine Scott of Edson, and four sons and one daughter, Charles of Elk, Wash., Walter of Marshfield, Archie and Leonard of Owen, and Mrs. Edward Bohn of Cornell, all of who were present at the funeral except Charles of Washington.
