Aumann, John (2 MAY 1851 - 21 APR 1924)

John Aumann passed away at his farm home in Pine Valley, Clark County, Wis., near this city, Monday morning, April 21, 1924, at 2:15 o'clock. His death was due to complications from an accident several years ago. Deceased was born in Jefferson, Wis., May 2, 1851. He was educated in the schools there and was there married to Caroline Kemmeter Jan. 7, 1873. They lived in Jefferson Co. until March 1905, when they moved to Neillsville and purchased the farm which was his home until his death.

Jan. 7, 1923 marked the fiftieth anniversary of the marriage of Mr. and Mrs. Aumann, and their golden wedding was celebrated at their home and at St. Mary's Church. It was a day of rejoicing, especially because of the fact that not only were both parents living, but also their twelve children, all of who were present at the time. One daughter, Mrs. Caroline Wingenter of North Milwaukee, passed to her reward the following August. Mr. Aumann is mourned by his wife and their eleven surviving children, namely: Joseph and John of Seattle, Wash.; Frank of Jefferson; Charles of Neillsville; Rev. Edward of Ft. Atkinson; Mrs. Ferd Hrach of Neillsville; Mrs. Walter Knilans of Delavan; Mrs. Wm. Gaden of Neillsville; Gottlieb of North Milwaukee; Mrs. Jake Haas of Neillsville and Henry on the home place. He leaves also two brothers, Joseph of Jefferson and George of Cashton; one sister, Mrs. Teresa Suhr of Cashton, Wis.; and 22 grandchildren.

Mr. Aumann was a man who won the respect of all who knew him. He was an industrious farmer, faithful in his duties to his home and his family, a faithful member of St. Mary's Church and a member of the Catholic Knights.

Funeral services were conducted at St. Mary's Church, Rev. Edward Aumann, a son of the departed, was celebrant at the Solemn High Mass; Rev. Alois Zinthefer of Marshfield acted as deacon and Rev. P. Weber of Neillsville as sub-deacon. He was laid to rest in St. Mary's Cemetery, Rev. Edward Aumann blessing the grave.

Those from outside of the city present at the funeral, besides the children, were Joseph Aumann, a brother of Jefferson, Miss B. M. Kemmeter of Milwaukee, Gottlieb and John Kemmeter from Jefferson.
