Rossow, William (1834 - 1910)






----Source: Greenwood Gleaner 11/3/1910


William Rossow quietly passed away at his old home in the town of Beaver, Clark County, a few miles northeast of this city on Friday Oct. 22, 1910. Heart failure and old age were the cause of his death at the round old age of seventy-six years, three months and twenty six days.

He was born in Falkenwalde, Germany, on June 28th, 1834, and was married to Miss Minnie Broecker at that place in 1856. He, with his family, immigrated to America in the fall of 1874 and remained at Sheboygan, Wis., until the spring of 1875, when he moved to Clark County and settled on his farm in the town of Beavers, where he died.

He was the father of four children, three boys and one girl, two of whom still survive, August and Julius. As a father and a man devoted to his family he had no equal, always being kind and friendly with those he came in contact. During his life hew was a strong, healthy, robust man, in perfect health until two years ago, since which time he has been totally blind and gradually sinking away.
Funeral services were conducted at the home Monday, at half past ten and in the Lutheran Church in Loyal at half past twelve, Rev. Kemana officiating. Interment was made in the Lutheran Cemetery just north of Loyal.
