Eisenhart, Louisa (18 MAR 1838 - 14 JUL 1921)
Miss Louisa Rexter was born in Germany March 18, 1838, growing to womanhood, and being united in marriage to Mr. Jacob Eisenhart in her girlhood home, on Oct. 16, 1865. About thirty-five years ago, Mr. and Mrs. Eisenhart came to America with their family, settling first on a farm a mile from Humbird, Clark County, Wis., and a short time later moving into the village, which has since been their home.
About ten years ago Mrs. Eisenhart became totally blind, and the affliction came as a double blow to her, fir it deprived her of one of her greatest enjoyments, that of reading. But through the long years of darkness she has been uncomplaining. For over two years she was confined to her bed by the infirmities of old age. On Thursday, July 14, 1921, she passed peacefully away, at the age of 83 years, 3 months and 16 days. Mrs. Eisenhart was the mother of eight children, three of whom died in infancy. She is survived by her husband, two daughters, Mrs. George Laffe of Humbird, and Mrs. John Schumacher of Merrill; and three sons, Jacob of Garden Valley, Christ of North Bend, and Henry of Milwaukee.
Funeral services were held at the Reformed Church on Sunday afternoon, and burial was in the Mentor Cemetery.
