Rex, Ferdinand Adolph (20 Apr. 1865 - 6 May 1944)

Ferdinand Adolph Rex died Saturday, May 6th, at the age of 79 years of a heart attack at the Colby Clinic. He had lived on a farm near Unity until Thursday when he and his wife moved into the H. J. Welsch house in Colby recently vacated by Mr. and Mrs. Arthur Graumann.

Funeral services were held Tuesday morning at 9:30 at the Lulloff Funeral Home, where the body had been lying in state, and at 10 A.M. at the Trinity Lutheran church in Unity, Rev. Fred Meske officiating. The body was taken to Hustisford where burial took place at the Hustisford cemetery.

Mr. Rex was born on April 20th, 1865, in Germany near the city of Stetton and came to the United States in 1887 and lived with his uncle at Horicon. He was married to Pauline Justman on August 14, 1898, in the town of Herman, Dodge county. They lived in the vicinity of Hustisford for 25 years and then moved onto a farm near Unity where they made their home until last Thursday.

The deceased is survived by his wife, one son, Rueben, of Unity; three grand children; one nephew who lives in Milwaukee; and at the outbreak of the war he had two brothers in Germany. One daughter, Leona, preceded him in death.

The deceased was a good Christian, honest in all his dealings, of a congenial disposition and was well-liked by all who knew him.
