Adam Tisher, an old and respected citizen of
Oconto, well known throughout the city, died suddenly Tuesday morning
at 1:20, aged 81 years. He had been ailing from a complication of
diseases but had been able to be around up to a short time before his
Mr. Tisher was born in Pilsen, Checkoslavakia
(sic), October 18, 1852 and came to Manitowoc county, Wisconsin when
two years old. In 1881 he became a citizen of this country and about 45
years ago moved to Oconto. He was married in Manitowoc 57 years ago to

member, as well as of the C.S.P.S. The pallbearers will be members of
the I.O.O.F. and C.S.P.S.
In addition to his fraternal associations he had
served as a alderman from his ward and chairman of the city poor
commmittee. He had for many years been custodian of the Odd fellows
building in this city.
