Word has been received of the death of Julius H. Wiersig of Phoenix, Arizona, on August 14, of cancer of the bladder, at the age of 83 years, having been born in Adell, Wis., on September 30, 1873.
He was married on June 19, 1902, to Louise Haberkorn. They lived successfully in Alva, Okla., Waltham, Minn., and Minneapolis, Minn. He was a carpenter-contractor by trade in the days when houses and barns were built mostly by hand. He was especially adept in the open staircases and cabinetwork of that time. In 1917, they moved onto a farm east of Abbotsford where they resided for 20 years and they moved to Wausau where they made their home until 1950.
