Firnstahl, Michael (23 SEP 1822 - 20 SEP 1892)

Died, at the residence of his son Paul in the town of Hull, Marathon Co., Wis., on Tuesday, Sept 20th, 1892, Michael Firnstahl, aged 70 years.

Michael Firnstahl was born in Austria, Sept. 23rd, 1822, and had he lived until tomorrow would have been 70 years old. He came to America with his family in May 1875, and located at Stevens Point, remained there about a month and then he came to Colby and has resided here ever since, greatly respected by all who knew him. He was a man of a rather retiring disposition, did not mingle with the general populace, hence, notwithstanding his long residence, his acquaintance was not large outside of members of his own church. He was a devoted member of the Catholic Church, where his funeral occurred today, and was attended by a large concourse, and a long procession escorted the remains to the Catholic Cemetery, notwithstanding the rain. Rev. Father Schaller of Chippewa Falls conducted the funeral.
