Oconto Falls - 1919

-John Langley died at his home on Depot Street on Monday, Oct. 6, aged 70 years, 8 months and 21 days.

The deceased was born in Canada, and came to Wisconsin when a young man. For a number of years he cultivated a farm in the town of Oconto Falls, but sold this property several years ago and bought a home in the city.

Death was the result of an attack of apoplexy which affected him about a week before his death.

He is survived by a wife and six children. The funeral occurred on Wednesday with services at St. Anthony's catholic church, conducted by Rev Zerbach, and burial in the catholic cemetery.
