Kadolph, William Sr. (4 NOV 1861 - 28 AUG 1937)

The Deceased Wm. Kadolph, Sr. was born at Panknin, Pomerania, Germany on the 4th day of November, 1861. In early infancy he was baptized in the name of the Triune God and then later instructed and confirmed in the Ev. Luth. Church.

In 1886 he left his native country and came to the U. S. A. arriving at Hartford, Wis., on the 20th day of May of the same year. On the 8th day of May, 1888, he was married to Miss Bertha Daehn, which union was blessed with five children, of which one son preceded the parents to eternity. On May 15th of this year Mrs. Kadolph preceded the deceased into eternity.

The deceased was a resident of the Township of Loyal of Clark Co., since 1901. The deceased was apparently in a good state of health and last Saturday evening as usual he went to the village of Loyal and in walking home and getting almost home he was struck by a passing car which resulted in sudden death, which is the first auto fatality in Clark Co. for the year 1937. He was picked up and rushed to the doctor but life was gone. To sat the least it was a terrible tragedy, but according to Divine Providence his time had come. The deceased attained the age of 75 years, 9 months, and 17 days.

Kadolph, Jr., of the township of Loyal; John Kadolph of Weyauwega and Mrs. Clara Tetzlaf of Milwaukee; also one sister Mrs. Carl Guske of Milwaukee, sixteen grand children, besides numerous relatives and a host of friends who have our hearts sympathy in their bereavement.
