Weix, Barbara (May 1838 - 13 Apr. 1902)

Mrs. Lorenz Weix, of Beaver Dam, Wisconsin, died Sunday, April 13th, aged about 70 years, and the funeral was held yesterday. Her maiden name was Barbara Bachuber; she was born in Germany but came to America, with her parents, when 8 years of age, and settled in Dodge county. She was married to Lorenz Weix something over 50 years ago - in fact they lived in the town of Leroy fifty years. There were born to them fourteen children, thirteen of whom are living, and seven of them, Mike, Lorenz, Joseph and John, and Mary, Barbara and Theresa, who are Mesdames Schraufnagle, Firnstahl and Umhoefer, live in this vicinity and all of them attended the funeral. The other six children and the bereaved husband live in Dodge county.

Mrs. Weix’s month and year of birth are from the 1900 U.S. Federal Census, Leroy, Dodge County, Wisconsin.
