Konrad, Jacob (1863 - 1916)


Jacob KONRAD was born in the town of Mosell, Sheboygan county Wisconsin, March 6, 1863, being 52 years, 10 months and 10 days of age at his death.

He spent his young manhood in the vicinity of his birth and on September 11, 1890, was united in marriage to Miss Kate DOUGLAS of Cascade, Wisconsin. They resided on a farm in the town of Lima, Sheboygan county, until 1905, when they moved to the Town of Hull, purchasing the Charles RAETHER farm, which was his home up until his death.

Mr. KONRAD was a man well thought of in the community where he lived, and always took an active part in events transpiring about him. he was a man of strong personality and good judgement, honest and fearless in all his undertakings, and inclined to look upon the bright side of life. He was a prominent member of the A. S. of E. and the M. W. A. and in these organizations he was a faithful worker for the advancement of each, and his wise counsels will be greatly missed by his associates.

For the past few years, Mr. KONRAD has been in failing health. he sought relief in many places but nothing seemed to answer the purpose. About six weeks ago he went to Sacred Heart Sanitarium, Milwaukee, in the hope that it might prolong his life, but to no avail. He passed away Sunday morning, January 16, 1916.

He leaves to mourn his death his wife and three children, Perry, Mary and Eugene, of the Town of Hull, besides his mother, Mrs. A. M. KONRAD of Sheboygan county, and four sisters, Mrs. Charles TRUTSCHEL of Sheboygan Falls, Mrs. H. F. THIEDEMANN and Mrs. C. B. SCHULTZ of Plymouth and Mrs. M. E. KEYES of Cascade.

The funeral was held from St. John's Evangelical church in this city, Reverend R. R. Braddick officiating. Those attending the funeral from out of town were, Mrs. F. DOUGLAS of Withee, and H. F. THIEDEMANN and C. B. SCHULTZ of Plymouth.
