Dobes, Frank (11 JUN 1856 - 6 Sep 1927)

Frank Dobes, who has been in poor health for over two years and confined to his bed most of the time for more than a year, passed away at his home in this city, Sept. 6, 1927, aged 71 years, 2 months and 25 days. He was born June 11, 1856, in Bohemia, Austria. In the year 1879 he was married to Anna Fiala; they came immediately to America and stopped in Chicago, where they lived till 1896, when they moved to Hatfield, buying a piece of wild land, which they developed into a fine farm. In 1907 they sold this farm and bought a farm in the town of Levis, Clark County, living there until 1918, when they moved to Neillsville, making their home here ever since. Mr. Dobes was an industrious, honest, upright man, always being careful to pay promptly for anything he bought and tried to do the right thing in all his dealings.

Meier of Levis; Tillie, Mrs. Carl Zschernitz of Neillsville; Frank Dobes on the home farm in Levis; Julia, Mrs. F. Wendel of Indiana. Mary died in infancy.
