Andrew Aggen [1866 – 1922] New Holstein Reporter --- March 31, 1922
Relatives and friends were greatly shocked on Wednesday, March 29th when it was learned that Andrew Aggen, residing three miles north of Chilton was a victim of suicide. Mr. Aggen, together with his two sons, were getting ready to go to town. In the meantime he disappeared and upon failure to return an investigation was made. When a member of the family appeared at the door of his bedroom he fired a shot from a revolver which penetrated his abdomen. The cause of the rash act is unknown as Mr. Aggen is financially well situated.
The deceased, a son of the late Mr. and Mrs. Conrad Aggen[sic] was born on a farm south of this village some 56 years ago, where he grew to manhood. About 30 years ago he was united in marriage to Miss Katie Sievers of this village, Justice of the Peace Jacob Severin tying the nuptial knot. After marriage the young couple moved on a farm 3 miles north of Chilton where they have since resided.
He is survived by his grief-stricken wife, two sons, George and Winfield and one daughter, Viola, all at home. One sister, Mrs. Anna Ahlf of New Holstein, three brothers, Conrad of Wittenberg, Henry of Sheboygan, and Simon of New Holstein, also survive.
The funeral will take place tomorrow, Saturday afternoon from his home near Chilton, with interment in the New Holstein cemetery.
