The deceased suffered a stroke of paralysis three and one-half years ago, from which he never recovered. He leaves a widow, a son and a daughter to mourn his departure to the undiscovered country.

The deceased, a cigar maker all his life, was born in Dobruluck, Germany. He was married in 1872, to which union two children were born, both of who are still living, namely: Mr. P. A. Michaelis, Jr., Marion, Wis., and Mrs. E. A. Giesel of Chicago. In 1873 he and his wife came to the U. S. and located in Bear Creek, Waupaca, Co., Wis.
