Nielsen, Niels C. (23 SEP 1857 - 28 FEB 1936)

N.C. Nielsen, a pioneer settler in the town of Hixon (Clark Co., Wis.), passed away at Withee, Friday, after being ill some time with dropsy. He had reached the age of 78 years.

Mr. Nielsen came to Withee more than thirty-five years ago, and settled on a farm two miles west of the village, where he resided. In that time he developed an excellent farm.

Funeral services were conducted Monday afternoon from the Danish Lutheran Church, the rev. M. Mikkelsen officiating, and burial took place in the Danish Church Cemetery.

He is survived by his aged wife, four sons, Elmer and Andrew of Montana, Marvin of Indiana, and Clarence of Withee; and one daughter, Mrs. H.C. Frietag, Chicago; and eight grandchildren.
