Eisenhart, John J. (17 DEC 1837 - 24 DEC 1924)

John Jacob Eisenhart was born in Germany Dec. 17, 1837. There he grew to manhood, and in 1865, he was married to Miss Louisa Rextor, to which union was born eight children. Three of the children died in childhood, and a daughter, Mrs. Anna Schoemacker passed away a year ago.

Joining the tide of western emigration, this family severed the ties which bound them to their home in the Old World and came to America, arriving in Humbird, Clark County, Wis. on May 4, 1884. They remained in that village until fall, and then moved to the farm a mile east of town, which was their home until twenty-one years ago, then returning to the village, where they lived until his wife died in 1921. He has since made his home with his son Jacob in Garden Valley, where he passed peacefully away on Dec. 24, 1924, attaining the advanced age of 87 years and 4 days.

Mr. Eisenhart is survived by one daughter, Mrs. Lizzie Laffe of this village, three sons, Christ of North Bend, Jacob of Garden Valley, and Henry of Plymouth; eighteen grandchildren, and eleven great-grandchildren, who are mourning the death of a beloved parent and grandparent. He had a host of friends among the older people of this community, whose sympathies are with those who sorrow during this season of general rejoicing.

Tuesday afternoon funeral services were held at the Reformed Church, Rev. D. Grether officiating, and burial was made in the Mentor Cemetery.

Relatives from away attending the funeral sere his sons Christ and Henry from North Bend and Plymouth, and John Schoemacker of Spring Grove, Minn.
