William Seelow was born in Germany May 1, 1872, and died in Pine Valley, Clark County, Wis., Nov. 14, 1928, aged 56 years, 6 months and 13 days.

He came to Clark County when he was about 20 years of age and worked around Neillsville a few years, and then bought land in the northwest part of Pine Valley, where he developed a good farm, which remained his home until he died.

Mr. Seelow was married in 1901 to Miss Ida Dux. She died in Jan. 1902. In Nov. 1902 he was married to Miss Martha Ott, who survives him.

He was a man of good habits, honest, upright and industrious, a kind husband and father and an excellent citizen.

Deceased leaves eight children to mourn his death: Arthur and Herbert of Nekoosa; Albert, Paul, Arnold and Louis at home; two daughters, Leona and Velda at home; also one step-son, Edward Keuer, one brother, Fred Seelow, and two sisters: Mrs. Fred Witt and Mrs. August Dux, both of Pine Valley.

The funeral was held Saturday at St. John's Lutheran Church, of which deceased was a member, Rev. Wm. Baumann officiating. Burial took place in Pine Valley Cemetery.
