Horn, Louis Henry (20 Dec. 1860 - 21 Jan. 1939)

Louis Horn, aged 78 years, died at his farm home a short distance southwest of Ladysmith, Saturday, Jan. 21, his death being caused by the infirmities of old age and physical complications.

Louis Henry Honr was born at Moeckmuehl, Wuertemberg, Germany, Dec. 20, 1860. He grew to young manhood in his native village, going through the common schools of that place. Later he attended Heilbronn college for two years, and at the age of twenty-one came to America. After working in Chicago two years, he came to Clark County, Wis., where he lived the greater part of his life. Eleven years ago he moved to Ladysmith, where he has since made his home.

On Dec. 23, 1894, he was united in marriage to Miss Josephine Horel, of Humbird. Five children were born to this union. One son, Robert, preceded him in death many years ago. Survivors are the widow and four children: Alfred of Ladysmith; Ralph, of Gardiner, Montana; Mrs. Dorothy Johnson, of Ladysmith; and Miss Vivian Horn, of Madison.

For many years he was occupied in the mercantile business, operating stores at Curtiss, Abbotsford, and Withee. He also operated cheese factories at Thorp, Withee, Shortville and Edson Center.

The funeral services were conducted Tuesday at Ladysmith, from Ellingboe Funeral Home, with Rev. W. W. Taylor, of the Methodist church officiating. Burial was at Edson Cemetery, near Boyd.

Relatives and friends from out of town attending the funeral were: Mr. and Mrs. Julius Henning and Mr. and Mrs. Harry Wilson, of Eau Claire; Mr. and Mrs. Jay Miller, Vern Miller, of Augusta; Mrs. Arnold Matti, of Humbird; Miss Vivian Horn, of Madison; Mr. and Mrs. Frank Moore and Mr. and Mrs. Frank Kipp, of Ingram.
