Glasow, Fred Henry William (23 September 1873 - October 31, 1957) 

Fredrick Henry William Glasow, 84, a former resident of the Town of Weston, died October 23, in Owen.  

Funeral services were held Friday afternoon from the Zion Lutheran Church, Stetsonville. The Rev. William Holzhausen officiated.  Burial was made in the Stetsonville Lutheran Cemetery. 

Mr. Glasow was born September 23, 1873, in Germany to Frederick and Fredericka (Luebs) Glasow.  He came to the United States with his parents in 1883 (aboard the Silesia) and lived in New York State for a short time before going to Neillsville.  The family resided in Neillsville until 1889 then moved to a farm in the Town of Weston.  

As a young man he worked as an apprentice cooper for the late John Hein.  In 1904, he purchased his father’s farm and continued this occupation until 1951, when he and his wife moved to Route 1, Dorchester, to make their home with their daughter, Mrs. Fritsche.  Mr. Glasow also hauled cream for the Clark County Butter Company for eight years, was an insurance agent from 1920 to 1950, and was assessor for the Town of Weston for many years. 

He was confirmed in the Lutheran Church (the rest of the obit was not found in the paper).
