Charles Georg Heinrich "Carl" Maron

Neilsville Times, 21 Oct 1897

Charles Maron, of Washburn township, died Tuesday, Oct. 9, of dropsy and a general breaking down from old age, aged 90 years and 3 months. He lived with a son, and had for a long time been hopelessly ill, being compelled to sit with his feet in a receptacle to catch the water that dripped from sores on his limbs. He came here from Ottawa, Ill., two years ago with his son's family, upon whom he was a helpless charge, and who did all they could to render his last days easy. The funeral will be held this afternoon, the Lutheran pastor from Granton presiding. The family have the sympathy of all.

Heinrich Friedrich Wilhelm "Henry" Marohn



Mr. Henry Marohn was born August 5, 1859 in Parpat, Germany. In the year 1882 he was united in marriage with Miss Bertha Ehlke in Karnitz. Shortly after his marriage he came to America and settled in Ottawa, Illinois. Here he rented a farm for several years. Then, in 1895 he moved to Neillsville, Clark County with his family. Here he lived but a short time and then bought a farm eight miles from Neillsville. On his farm, however, he fought with adverse circumstances for the next year his wife died, 1896, and the following year his father. In 1898 he, himself, was taken sick with rheumatism. As all things still went backwards, he sold his farm and moved to Winneconne. He, however, was never able to do hard work. For a few years he was janitor in the west side public school. A few years later he started a small book store in this village, but he was only able to keep it for a short time as he was taken sick with facial neuralgia. He was taken to Milwaukee and underwent an operation which proved successful but for a short time. For some months later he was compelled to go to bed. He never recovered since. He died August 30, shortly after seven o’clock. The cause of death was a chronic disease of long standing. The mourners are: Mrs. Robert Umlandt and Alma. Four sons Emil, Henry, Carl, and Frederick, two sisters, and many other relatives.
