Born in Germany on Jan. 21, 1863. Mr. Halbrader came to this country in his early youth and was married at Watertown, Wis., on Oct. 9, 1883. In the 1900 the family moved to Clark County, where they took up a homestead in the town of Seif, the present farm home.

He leaves to survive him, his widow, three daughters, Mrs. William (Cora) Humboldt, Williard; Mrs. Clarence (Anna) Marklein, Sullivan; Mrs. Clarence (Augusta) Peterson, Cedarburg; one son, George Halbrader, Seif; 10 grandchildren, and five great-grandchildren.

Funeral services were held on Saturday afternoon at 1:30 from the farm home, with the Rev. E. H. Vornholt, Neillsville, officiating, and with the burial in the town of Seif Cemetery.

A very large attendance at the funeral indicated the high esteem in which Mr. Halbrader was held in the Community.
