Wehling, Frederich (27 JAN 1849 - 6 JAN 1933)
Frederich Wehling was born at Mecklenburg Strelitz Dorm Germany, on the 27th day of January, 1849. In early infancy he was baptized in the name of the Triune God and then later instructed in the fundamental doctrines of the Christian Religion and confirmed in the Ev. Luth. Church, to which Church he remained a faithful member and is also an honorary charter of the local Congregation. In 1973 he left his native country and immigrated to the U.S.A. coming to Mayville, Dodge County, in which vicinity he worked for a while and then came to Clark County where he has lived for 51 years.
On Feb. 17, 1881, he was married to Minnie Lehmann, which union was blessed with 7 children of which four preceded their parents to eternity. Although quite well advanced in years his death came unexpectedly. On Friday evening his Heavenly Father called him out of time into eternity. He attained the age of 83 years, 11 months and 9 days. The deceased leaves to mourn his death his sorrowing wife, with whom he was permitted to live for over 51 years. Three children, viz: Otto Wehling of Hartford, Gust Wehling of the Town of Loyal and Mrs. Anna Nork of Redfield, South Dakota, also 10 grandchildren and one sister, Mrs. Minnie Born of Fox Lake, besides numerous other relatives and a host of friends who have our heartfelt sympathy in Their Bereavement.
