Mandel David C. (23 JAN 1879 - 26 JAN 1917)

David C. Mandel died Friday forenoon, Jan. 26, 1917, at 11:30 o’clock of pneumonia, after an illness dating back to the 4th of January. The disease had passed the critical stage once and his recovery was thought certain, but suffered a relapse which resulted in his death.

Mr. Mandel was born at Two Rivers, Manitowoc Co., Wis., Jan. 23, 1879, his age being 38 years and 3 days. He and his brother Ernst came to Clark County twenty years ago and together they did carpenter work for eight years in this vicinity. For the past twelve years David has been engaged in cheese making, having conducted his factory in the town of Beaver (Clark Co.) during that time. He was married to Miss Barbara Brecker of Beaver in 1900. Three sons were born to them, Alfred, Leo, and Arnold, who with their mother, mourn the loss of a kind and loving husband and father.

Besides the wife and children, he leaves his father, August Mandel of Two Rivers; and six brothers, August of Dodge, Neb.; Ernst, Colby; Fred and Albert of Dodge, Neb.; and Julius and Edwin of Two Rivers; four sisters, Mrs. Albert Bernardt; Mrs. Adam Lauber; Mrs. Bugler and Miss Ida Mandel of Two Rivers. All were here to attend the funeral except Mrs. Bernardt.

The funeral was held from the Lutheran Church in the town of Beaver, Rev. Schreiber of Greenwood officiating. Burial took place in Beaver Cemetery.
