Scherer, John (27 Jan. 1857 - 11 March 1927)

John Scherer, 70, passed away at 2 p.m. Friday at St. Nicholas hospital, following a lingering illness of six years. He was removed to the hospital from his home on Main Avenue, west of Calumet Drive, just a week ago. Mr. Scherer was born in Germany on January 27, 1857 and came to Wisconsin with his parents at the age of seven years. The family settled on a farm near Newburg and in 1884 the deceased was married there to Miss Annie Kreit. Fifteen years ago the family came to this city and had lived here since. Survivors are the widow, three sons, Nick and Matt of Neillsville; and Edward of Chippewa Falls and four daughters, Mrs. Louis Falkener, this city; Mrs. William Neuman, Boston Mass., Mrs. Frank Nowak of this city and Miss Susia, at home. Funeral services will be held at 8:30 a.m. Tuesday from the residence and a 9 o'clock from Holy Name Church. Reverend Father Dries will officiate and burial will be made in the North Side Catholic Cemetery.
