Langemak, Peter Sr. (10 DEC 1809 - 15 OCT 1893)

Peter Langemark Sr., father of Mrs. Charles Tiedeman, died at 5 a.m. on Sunday Oct. 15, 1893, at his daughter's residence in this village (Thorp, Clark County, Wis.), aged 83 years, 10 months and 5 days. Mr. Langemak was born at Oestrade, Holstein, Germany, and immigrated with his wife to this country in 1854, settling in New Holstein, Calumet Co., Wis., where he continued to reside until seven years ago, since which time he has made his home with his daughter in this village. His wife preceded him to the grave, her death taking place at New Holstein in 1876. His death was caused from a paralytic stroke, which he suffered several days previous, from which, owing to his great age, he was unable to rally and he sank peacefully "to rest", surrounded by all his surviving children except one. He was the father of seven children, Mrs. H. Severin, Mrs. H. Oseau, Peter Jr., and William of New Holstein, and Mrs. Magdalena Tiedeman of this village, the others having died several years since. His remains were taken to New Holstein on Tuesday morning where the funeral occurred the same day, the deceased being laid beside his wife and two children. Numerous relatives from here accompanied the remains to their final resting place.
