Jahr, Alfred (15 FEB 1858 - 23 JUN 1916)

Alfred Jahr was born Feb. 15, 1858 in the town of Trenton, Washington Co., Wis., and died at the home of his sister, Mrs. Louis Drescher in the town of Grant, Clark County, Wis., June 23, 1916.

Mr. Jahr suffered during his entire life from the results of a severe illness in childhood. He never married, living with his parents till they died and then with a brother. Fifteen years ago he came to this community where he lived with his sister till the time of his death.

Mr. Jahr was a member of the German Methodist Church from the time of his youth and was always deeply interested in its work. He was a consistent Christian faithful and willing to do all that he was able to do.

During the past six months he suffered from Bright’s disease and dropsy, which resulted in his death. He is survived by one sister, Mrs. Drescher, on brother, Emil Jahr of this vicinity, and six half-sisters and one half-brother. Funeral services were held Sunday afternoon, June 25th, at the Pleasant Ridge Church, Rev. L.B. Colman of the Methodist Church officiating, and the remains interred in the Grant Cemetery.
