Meyer, John (18 July 1876 - 7 Feb. 1956)

John Meyer of Colby, retired farmer and carpenter, died Tuesday morning at 7:00 o’clock at the Marshfield, Wisconsin Hospital at the age of 79 years, a brain hemorrhage after a skull fracture suffered in a fall near the Oldsmobile garage, being the cause of his death. Funeral services are being held this Thursday morning at St. Mary’s Catholic church in Colby, Wis., Rev. Vincent Schwartz officiating, and internment will be made in the Colby (Colby, Clark Co. Wis.) Cemetery. A rosary was held Wednesday evening at the Lulloff Funeral Home in Colby, Wis.

Mr. Meyer was born on July 18, 1876, at Fredonia. He came to Colby in 1914 and developed a farm in the town of Hull where he lived for 15 years. He then returned to Fredonia for 12 years and then retired to spend the remainder of his life here with his brother, William. He was also a carpenter and was not married.

Surviving are three brothers, William of Colby, Albert of Milwaukee and Edward of Fredonia; one sister, Mrs. Edward Voith of Milwaukee; five nieces and five nephews. One brother preceded him in death.
