Luhrsen, August Henry (31 Mar. 1863 - 2 Sept. 1953)

Funeral services for August H. Luhrsen, who died Wednesday, Sept. 2, were held Saturday afternoon at the Presbyterian church in Abbotsford, Wisconsin and internment was made in the Abbotsford cemetery.

August Henry Luhrsen, was born in Sauk county, town of Westfield, March 21, 1863. He was married to Josephine Hulbert in 1884 in Reedsburg where the family resided. Four children were born to this union, three of whom survive their parents; Mrs. Clyde Nielsen of Minneapolis, Clarence (Louis) of Mondovi, Mrs. John (Wanda) Miller of Strum. A son, Culy, died in 1951, Mrs. Luhrsen died in 1892.

On November 12, 1902, Mr. Luhrsen and Amanda Henke were united in marriage at Wisconsin Rapids. They lived at Marshfield for a time, and, in 1906, moved to Abbotsford, Wis. When the Division moved from Abbotsford in 1910, the Luhrsens lived for a short time at New Richmond, Eau Claire, Wisconsin Rapids and then returned to Abbotsford in 1916 and lived there since that time. Mr. Luhrsen traveled for the International Harvester Company from 1897 to 1927, after which he retired. Mrs. Luhrsen died in June, 1947.

Survivors of his second marriage are Delos C. Luhrsen of Stevens Point, Mrs. Loella Baehr of Milwaukee and August Luhrsen of Waukesha. A sister, Mrs. Emma Licht of New Freedom, three grand children and two great grand children also survive.

Mr. Luhrsen, who celebrated his 90th birthday anniversary last March, had been in good health and had been ill for only a few days.
