Emil C. Meyers Dies Suddenly
Emil C. Meyers was born in the town of Herman, Sheboygan County, Wis., February 26, 1857, and passed away at his home in Abbotsford Monday, April 25, 1932, at the age of 75 years, 1 month and 29 days.
When yet a very young man Mr. Meyers learned the carpenter trade. In 1878 he, with two brothers, came to Clark County and located at Green Grove. He was among the early pioneers in the county and for a number of years was head sawyer in many of the large saw mills that were then prevalent in this section.
In 1886 he was united in marriage to Mary Domer, who preceded him in death in 1919.
Upon the country becoming a dairy center Mr. Meyers entered the cheese making business and for a time operated cheese factories in this community.
About seventeen years ago Mr. and Mrs. Meyers came to Abbotsford where from time to time Mr. Meyers has been engaged in carpenter work.
Funeral services for the deceased were held Thursday afternoon at 2 o’clock from the home, the Rev. L. C. Smith officiating, the I. O. O. F. later taking charge, with burial at Colby, Wis.
Three brothers and a sister, Henry of Green Grove, Herman of Mobile, Alabama, August of Madison, and Mrs. Herman Schuette of Howards Grove, with two nieces Mrs. Stella Salter of Pittsville, and Mrs. Schulte of the town of Colby, and a nephew Herbert Meyers and family of Green Grove, were here to attend the funeral.
Mr. Meyers was very well liked by all who knew him and has many friends in this community who will miss his pleasant greeting. He was around town and about his home until a few hours before his death which came quite suddenly about noon Monday and was quite a shock to this community.
