Carl Christian Fink was born in Milwaukee on Oct. 1, 1870 and was 62 years, 4 months and 9 days old at time of death. In September of 1883 he moved to Clark County and settled on a farm near Curtiss, Wis. On March 21, 1897 he was united in marriage to Miss Bertha Prange at Curtiss, Wis. Eleven children were born to this happy union, five of them preceding their father in death. In 1926 the Fink’s moved to Abbotsford where they have since resided.
