Birth: Oct. 27, 1820
Death: Nov. 8, 1901

John J Paulson [1820 1901] Chilton Times -- November 16, 1901 Gravesville Cemetery

On Friday morning of last week, John J Paulsen, an honored citizen of the town of Charlestown passed away at the home of his son Ferdinand at the ripe old age of 81 years and 12 days. His death was a peaceful one, the thread which bound his life to this earth being severed without any show of great suffering, The old gentleman was ill only about eight days, his death resulting from debility and old age. Mr. Paulsen was a native of Holstein, Germany, and was born on October 27, 1820. He was married in his native village. In 1863 desiring to better his condition, he came with his family to America and located in the town of New Holstein where he remained until 1868 when he purchased a farm in the town of Charlestown on which he resided until the final summons came. Some ten years ago his wife died. He was an industrious, hardworking man and ever watchful of the interest of his family. He lived to see his children grow into useful and progressive citizens, a recompence which he considered worth all his toil and care. The funeral took place on Sunday, the remains being taken to the Gravesville cemetery for interment. E. W. Paulsen, of this city, delivered the funeral oration and paid a fitting tribute to the grand old man. Five sons, Herman, Julius and Henry, of Charlestown, Peter and Ludolph, of Davenport, Iowa, and one daughter, Mrs. Anna Schroeder of New Holstein, are left to mourn his death.
