Nitschki, Ferdinand (1864 -
Services for Ferdinand Nitschki, 88, a resident
of Clark County for about 60 years, were held August 8, at
Janesville, with burial in the Plymouth Cemetery near
services were conducted by the Rev. John Keiser, pastor of the Lake
Mills Lutheran congregation.
Nitschki, who once owned an eighty on the Cemetery road, adjoining
the Bernard Dodte farm, died August 5 after an illness of three
years. During that period he had made his home with a niece,
Mrs. William Groth, near Janesville. Prior to that he had
lived in Neillsville for several years, and worked as a carpenter
here for many years.
Nitschki was born December 23, 1864, in Breslau, Germany. He
came to the United States in 1883, as a young man of 19, with a
sister. They settled first in Dodge County, and Mr. Nitschki
moved here about 60 years ago.
Surviving are two nieces and two nephews: Mrs.
Groth of Janesville and Mrs. Martin Dankemyer of Chili; and Ed and
Reinhold (Hank) Voigt, both of the Town of York.
Mr. and Mrs. Martin Dankemyer and son William of Chili attended the funeral services.
