Ammenthorp, Kristian J. (30 DEC 1864 - 13 OCT 1930)
A heart attack at about noon on Monday proved fatal to Kristian Just Ammenthorp, a farmer, residing two and one quarter miles south of Withee (Clark Co., Wis.), shortly after he had left the field in which he had been working.
Mr. Ammenthorp, who was 65 years and 9 months of age, came with his wife from Denmark, twenty-eight years ago and settled on the farm on which he resided at the time of his death, and in this time has developed one of the finest farms in northern Clark County. For some time past he had not been in the best of health, but he believed that with treatment he would be alright again.
Mr. and Mrs. Ammenthorp were pioneer residents of the town of Longwood, and for many years he was helpful in the upbuilding of the town, at times holding office. He was considered one of the leading farmers in the vicinity and his farm was a show place to many who were seeking settlement in this vicinity.
Funeral services were conducted this afternoon from the Danish Lutheran Church at Withee at two o’clock, with Rev. Mickelsen officiating, and burial taking place in the Danish Cemetery.
Besides his widow, he leaves to mourn, three sons, George of Eau Claire, Emil of Wausau, and Olaf of West Allis, Wis., one daughter, Marie, besides one brother, Fred, who farm adjoins his.
