Zelle, George (? - APR 1904)

George Zelle, who with his wife left this city (Colby, Clark Co., Wis.) last spring for the Soldiers’ Home at Waupaca, has passed away.

George was one of the old "vets" of the Civil War and has been credited by his old comrades for his soldierly qualities. He was also one of the old settlers of Colby and has many friends here who regret to learn of his death, and will deeply sympathize with the aged wife and the children he leaves to mourn his loss.

The funeral was held at Waupaca, Friday afternoon and the burial took place in the Home Cemetery.

Mr. and Mrs. Chas. Meyer, Mr. and Mrs. Aug. Schultz and Mrs. Chas. Radtke took the 8:30 train for Waupaca Friday morning to attend the funeral, the three ladies being daughters of Mr. Zelle.
