Advanced age and infirmities was the cause of the death of Anton Nigg,

at the age of 96 years. The funeral was held Tuesday afternoon from the
Henry Nigg home and burial made in the Melbourne cemetery. The I. O. O.
F. lodge of which he was a faithful member had charge of the services A.
B. Barnett had charge of the funeral. Deceased leaves two children both
of Merrill who are Mrs. J. J. Schindel and Henry Nigg. His wife passed
away many years ago and for the last 10 years he has been living with
his daughter. He was a resident of this community for nearly 60 years he
encountered the hardships of the first early settlers who struggled hard
to build up this part of the state. Mr. Nigg was well known in this
community and leaves a host of friends who join with the relatives in
mourning his loss.
