The deceased Anna Rohlinger was born some 80 years ago in Wincheringen, Germany. When eight years old she came to America with her parents who settled at Woodland, Dodge County. This continued to be her home until her marriage on August 1, 1864 at the Catholic Church in Woodland to Franz Bernard. Mr. Bernard followed the blacksmith trade and worked at Iron Ridge, Dodge county. Later, Mr. and Mrs. Bernard moved to Ashford, Fond du Lac county, where Mr. Bernard also operated a blacksmith shop.
In the year 1885, they disposed of that property in Fond du Lac county and moved to this vicinity, locating on the Edward Daskam farm, three miles north of this city in the town of Chilton, having purchased the same.
Prior to 1902, they operated that farm; after that year they retired, their son Math, taking charge of the farm. They have made their home with him since.
They were both progressive and ambitious helpful to their neighbors, a couple who worked for the welfare of their children.
Mrs. Bernard was the first to be called from the number. She was a dutiful wife a loving mother, her traits of kindness making her a lovable woman. She had lived in a good old age, nevertheless her departure will be looked upon most sorrowfully.
