Note: According to family records his first name was actually John and his middle name was Anton and he was born in 1824. His wife's maiden name was Janett. He is buried in Floyd Valley Cemetery in Hinton.
Anton Brehm, who died a few days ago at his home near Hinton, came to this country in 1851 settling in Washington county, Wisconsin. He came from there to Plymouth county in 1863.
When he began life in the new country his assets and liabilities were equal, there being naught upon the one side and nothing upon the other. His industry adn frugality under the flag of the free, gathered the fruits of honest toil and rich fields and when he came to bid his six children a final good bye, he left to them near if not quite $25, 000 in good property. His wife succedded him across to the other shore.
His children are all of age except one, and have grown up after the fashion and in the strength of character industry and integrity, of him whose example was well worthy of their following.
He will be greatly missed by his family and the community in which he he lived, but his example will remain to influence all who knew him.
