Hake, Adolph (13 MAY 1865 - 23 MAY 1921)

Adolph Hake passed away at his home in this city last Monday morning at 7:15 o’clock, after an illness of about five months, caused by cancer of the lung.

Adolph Hake was born in the town of Herman, Sheboygan Co. May 13, 1865, and was married to Miss Ernestina Gosse of the town of Mosel, Jan 4, 1891. They came to Colby in 1902 and settled on a farm in the town of Green Grove, Clark County, Wis., where they resided until two years ago, when they rented their farm and moved into the city.

Besides his widow he is survived by a son, Walter of the town of Green Grove, three daughters, Mrs. Roland Scheel and the Misses Helen and Edith of Colby; two brothers, Theodore of the town of Hull, Marathon Co., and Herman of the town of Mosel, Sheboygan Co.; and two sisters, Mrs. August Meves of Milan and Mrs. Wm. Henlein of Milwaukee, and one grandchildren, Harold Scheel.

Mr. Hake was a believer in the faith and doctrine of Pastor Russell, and the funeral is being held this afternoon at the Colby opera house, the address being given by T. W. Petran.

The Phonograph joins with all in extending deepest sympathy to the bereaved ones.
