ANOTHER OLD SETTLER GONE
Merrill Record: James Luksan, who for over thirty years was a resident of Liberty township, passed to his reward Sunday evening, January 7, 1912. The funeral services were conducted yesterday morning by Rev. Father Connolly and interment was in the Liberty Township Cemetery.
James Luksan was born October 22, 1856, at Baraet, Bohemia. At the age of 14 he came to America and lived for a few years at Baltimore, Maryland. From Baltimore he came to Sioux City, and thence to Liberty Township, this county, where he has resided ever since and has prospered as he deserved. He was married during April 1888, to Miss Lizzie Ziek, of Sioux City. One daughter was born to Mr. and Mrs. Luksan, Mrs. Charles Closner, who lives nearby.
Besides these he leaves a brother Frank Luksan; a sister, Mrs. Chris. Munsch, and an aged father, Mike Luksan, who has recently passed his eightieth birthday. The father makes his home with Mr. and Mrs. James Luksan.
