AUGUST QUISTORF/1839-1886 Father

(From the Manitowoc Co. Chronicle, Tuesday, June 1, 1886)

After an illness of nine weeks duration, August Quistorf died at his home in this village a t 4 o'clock last Saturday afternoon under the auspices of the Sons of Hermann of which order he was an honored member. The funeral oration was promounced by Mr. Florian Ott, and was a fitting tribute to the virtues of the orator's dead freind and lodge brother.

Mr. Quistorf was born in Holstein in 1839. he served his term in the German army and took part in the war between Austria and Prussia in 1866. In July 1868, he emigrated from his native land to America and on reaching this soil cam directly to Mishicot where he has ever since resided. He took an active part in the affairs of this town, and at various times was elected to local offices.

A man of liberal education himself, he liked to see others educated and was always in for good teachers and a good school. His death is a heavy blow to his wife and children, five in number, to whom he was a kind husband and father. To his aged mother who has been a helpless invalid for the past ten years the schock may prove fatal. The bereaved family have the sympathy of the entire community
