Mr. Rahn was *72 years of age. He came to Clark County 37 years ago from Sheboygan County. He operated a farm in the town of Green Grove and also worked on a road grader for the county.

*In the original copy of the obituary it clearly shows the age as being 72, but with the birth year found in the cemetery index it shows Mr. Rahn being born in 1877; as he couldn’t have been 72 years old at the time of his death.
