Firnstahl, Lawrence (Birth - 15 Sept. 1911)

The increase in the population of the Midget City is a matter that should not be overlooked, yet last week we neglected to state that a great, big, stout lump of a boy arrived at Frank Firnstahl’s home, on Friday, Sept. 15th, and, as the youngster is almost big enough, but not old enough to vote, we hasten to make this announcement of his arrival.

Another arrival in the city was a young lady at the home of Matt Orth on Tuesday evening, Sept. 21st.

In each of the above cases the mother and child are doing nicely, but Frank and Matt are still acting as though it was the first time it had happened to them.

*** Note: Daughter Orth died on 27 Mar. 1918 and is buried in St. Mary’s Catholic Cemetery, Colby, Clark County, Wisconsin. Her first name is not known.
