Julius Langholff
At his home, 217 E Milwaukee Ave, on Friday, Sept 22nd, Julius F Langholff died at 6 a.m. at the age of 69 years eleven months, and 2 days. Deceased had been ill for many weeks and his recovery was despaired of. The suffering he was called upon to endure he bore with a fortitude that was truly heroic.
Julius Langholff, oldest son of Mr and Mrs Ferdidnand Langholff was born in Samocrzym, Prussia, October 20, 1846. At the age of three he came to America with his parents. They settled just across Bark River on the land now known as Bark Woods. Later they moved to Ft Atkinson and with the exception of ten years spent at Cumberland Wisconsin, this city has since been the deceased's home.
On May 26, 1874, Mr Langholff married Mary Catherine Regelein and to this union were born seven children, one of whom Leonard Carl, died in infancy. Those who survive with the widow are; Mrs Ferdinand Maas of Whitewater, Edward of Pittsville, Wis, Arthur, Oscar, Elsie and Ludolph of Ft Atkinson. One brother, Herman of this city, four sisters, Mrs A. J. Savall, Mrs William Wirig, Ft Atkinson; Mrs Wm Gallitz, Mrs Tillie Mess of Chicago;and three grandchildren also are left to mourn his death.
When a boy, deceased learned the blacksmith trade from his father. He engaged in the profession here for nearly forty years, closing his shop on S Water St W, July 20 1916, because of ill health. His years of expierence in the business made him an expert at the anvil and he always enjoyed good patronage. Success came to him through hard work, He was often spoken off as one of the hardest working men in the city. He was a substantial citizen, a man of sterling worth and character,. He will be greatly missed in the home and by his many friends.
Funeral services were held Monday at 2 p.m. from the home and at 2:15 p.m. at the St Pauls Luthern church with Rev. A. F. Nicolaus in charge. Internment was made in Evergreen cemetery.
Six city blacksmiths, A.G. Drager, O Heese, C Bacon, J Kuemmins, J Daniels and H. W. Smith, escorted the body to its final resting place.
