Switzenberg, Fred (20 Jan 1898 - 1 Augl 1918)

On Sunday funeral services were held at the Armory for two young soldiers who laid down their lives for their country on a battle field in France, Glenn Howard and Fred Switzenberg, whose bodies arrived from overseas last week. There was a very large attendance of friends and sympathizers of the bereaved families. The American Legion turned out to do military honors to their fallen comrades. The funeral sermon was preached by Rev. Geo. W. Longenecker.

Fred Switzenberg was born in the town of Levis, Clark County, Wis., Jan. 20, 1898, being the son of John and Paulina Switzenberg. He lived all his life in this locality until he left to go into the army. He enlisted with Co. A., went to Two Harbors, then to Camp Douglas, and with the others went over seas. He fell in battle Aug. 1, 1918 at chateau Thiery. A singular coincidence that these two young men from Neillsville who enlisted together, fell on the same day near the same place, and were here laid at rest at the same time Sunday afternoon. Fred Switzenberg left his parents, Mr. and Mrs. John Switzenberg, three brothers, John, Otto and Albert, and two sisters, Martha and Helen; also three half brothers, Joseph, Paul and Barney Felser.
