OBITUARY--Frank Horn

Frank Horn was born Sept. 15, 1845, at Saxony, Germany and died April 14, 1917 at Greenwood, Clark County, Wis. at the age of 71 years, 7 months. When he was five years old he crossed the ocean with his parents and settled at Sheboygan, Wis. On May 7, 1876 he was married to Louise Braun. To this union were born seven children, five of whom are still living, two having died in infancy. In 1878 they move to Clark Co. and have made their home ever since in Braun Settlement. He was one of the early pioneers who settled in the dense woods and hewed their fortunes out of the forests. He has ever been known as a very industrious man, with a sunny disposition, and was inclined always to look on the bright side of everything.
He has been gradually failing in health for many years. He was a faithful member of the German Reformed Church of Braun Settlement.


He leaves to mourn his loss a devoted wife, three sons, Will, Otto and Frank, all of Greenwood, and two daughters, Mrs. Bertha Karsten of Curtiss and Martha, who is still at home, and five grandchildren. He also leaves four sisters and three brothers. One brother, Robert, died last October. The funeral was held at the home by Rev. Hall on Wednesday, April 18, 1917, and was laid to rest in the Braun Settlement Cemetery. A large concourse of friends were there to pay their last respects to the departed. The floral offerings were many and beautiful. Those who came from a distance to attend the funeral were Mrs. Zimmerman and Mrs. Hammer of Wrightstown, Wis., Mrs. Johnson and Mrs. Kenkoske of Chicago, Ill., Mr. Gus Horn of Rhinelander, Wis, Mr. Charles Horn of Oelwin, Iowa and Miss Minnie Horn of Minneapolis, Minn.
