William Clark Dies Tuesday; Rites on Friday
(Obituary from Door County News, Thurs. Nov. 28, 1935)

WILLIAM CLARK DIES TUESDAY; RITES ON FRIDAY

William David Clark, 88, a resident of Door county for more than half a century, passed away at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Chan. Schuyler in Sawyer at an early hour on Tuesday morning. Death followed an illness of several years, the last six weeks of which his condition was considered serious.

Mr. Clark was born at Sheboygan Falls Nov. 14, 1847, and was united in marriage there to Amelia Liebe on October 30, 1882. Shortly after their marriage the couple moved to Clay Banks in Door county where they operated a farm until about twenty-five years ago when Mr. Clark retired and a few years ago they moved to Sawyer to make their home. Mrs. Clark passed away November 6, 1934.

Surviving are the following children; Sanford, Jacksonport; Mrs. Chan Schuyler, and James, Sawyer; Mrs. Hannah Tollefson, Sevastopol; John, Fish Creek, and Mrs. George Kraedermann of Kohler. Two brothers, Charles, Sawyer, Ed., Sheboygan; one sister, Mrs. Lottie Nickiche, Muskegon, Mich.; 28 grandchildren and 16 great grandchildren also survive.

Funeral services will be held on Friday afternoon at two o'clock from the Stoneman Funeral home in Sawyer, with the Rev. O.L. Hutchins, pastor of the Friends church, officiating. Interment will be made in the Clay Banks cemetery.

Among those from a distance expected here to attend the last rites are Mrs. Otto Nickiche, Muskegon, Mich.; Ed. Lawrence, Oshkosh; Mrs. Fred Briggs, Milwaukee, and Edward Clark, Sheboygan.
