Adam Tisher, 81

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 death.

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 Barbara Teteak, who survives him, together with two daughters, Mrs. Charles Prausa, Spruce, and Mrs. Mae Jarvis, Oconto, and two sons, Fred, of North Freedom and Charles, Milwaukee, eight grandchildren and eight great grandchildren.

The funeral will be held tomorrow afternoon with services by Oconto Lodge I.O.O.F., of which he had long been a devoted 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.

*My notes - parents of Adam were Joseph Tisher (1820-1900) and Susanna (abt 1819-?)
