The death of Adam Eiden, a pioneer Portage county resident, occurred Wednesday night at his home in the town of New Hope. He had been ailing for the past two years and in July his condition became worse at which time it was necessary for him to retire from work. He was confined to bed for the past two weeks.
Born in Germany on December 10, 1863, Mr. Eiden came to this county at the age of nine with his parents. The family located on a farm in the town of Sharon where the son lived until his marriage. He was married to Miss Anna Smith of New Hope 16 years ago and since then had resided at the farm home where he died. His wife died on June 4, 1922.
Surviving are three daughters, Mrs. Earl Leary of Merrill and Gertrude and Ada Eiden at home; three grandchildren; a brother, Matt Eiden of Ellis, and a sister Mrs. John Koltz of Wausau.
The body will be taken Friday afternoon from the Prais funeral home to the family home where it will remain until the time of the funeral.
