Jacob Rogus, 76, passed away at the home of his son, John, in the village (Thorp, Clark Co., Wis.) on Sunday, Jan. 24, 1943, of old age infirmities.

The deceased was born in Poland on June 18, 1866. He came to America for the first time in 1885 and spent some time in Chicago where he was united in marriage on June 15, 1888 to Miss Sophia Jarosz.

They resided there until Mr. Rogus’ retirement from farming in 1930, when they moved to the village of Thorp. Mrs. Rogus passed away in December 1939.

Mr. Rogus sold his residence in the village recently and has been living with his son.
