Mattes, Adolph (30 JUN 1831 - 19 DEC 1914)

Adolph Mattes died Saturday evening at the home of his daughter, Mrs. Wm. Gerhart. Deceased was born in Prussia on June 30, 1831 and came to this country in 1855, settling in Wisconsin. He was united in marriage to Miss Vernea Rusch in 1860 and 17 children were born to them. They lived for a few years in Michigan and Minnesota, but for 35 years made their home at Kewaskum. Three years ago Mr. and Mrs. Mattes came to Neillsville to make their home with their daughter. Deceased is survived by his wife, two sons and three daughters. He had been in feeble health for some time and while not having a large acquaintance here yet, those who know him were greatly impressed with his evident uprightness and sterling qualities. The funeral was held yesterday afternoon, service being conducted by Rev. Schmidt at the Gerhardt home and interment being made in the Neillsville Cemetery.
