Allar, Mathew (11 APR 1840 - 21 MAY 1898)

Died, at his home in the town of Colby, Clark Co., Wis., on Saturday, May 21st, 1898, of cancer of the stomach, Mathew Allar, Sr., in the 59th year of his age.

Mathew Allar was born in Laubach, Rhine Province, Germany, April 11th, 1840. April 18th, 1866, he was united in marriage with Miss Eva Falser, who survives him, and seven days later, April 25th, started for America. Shortly after his arrival in this country he went to Central Mine, Mich., where he worked in the copper mines until the spring of 1879, when he came here and settled on Section 26, town of Colby, where he died. With the exception of , that he was at Fond du Lac, he has resided here continuously. He was an industrious, hard working farmer, honest in all his dealings and respected by his acquaintances. For many months he has suffered and wasted away with that terrible malady, cancer of the stomach.

Besides his wife, he leaves to mourn his death four sons, Math. Jr., John, Frank and Jake, all of whom are now living at the homestead. The funeral occurred Monday from St. Kilian’s Church, Rev. G. Vadda officiating, and was very largely attended.
