Garbush, August #2 (1850? - 25 FEB 1913)


Word reached here last Friday that August Garbush, well known to many of our readers, had breathed his last and was buried in Oregon where for the past number of years he had taken up his abode.  Deceased came to Clark county with his parents when a small boy and he grew to manhood in the town of Grant.  At an early age he was married to Miss Paulina Fiedler and they together through many hardships and difficulties cleared a farm out of what was at that time nothing more than a wilderness and resided there happily and contented.  Nine children were born to them, 7 sons and two daughters, one boy and one girl died in infancy, and the following are those who, with the aged widow, survives to mourn the loss of a devoted husband and loving father, Charley, Eddie, and Albert of Dakota, Oscar of Stillwater, Minn., Arthur and Bertha (Mrs. James Jensen) of Lynn, Herbert, the youngest, living with his mother at Neillsville, also 6 brothers who reside in this immediate vicinity.  Mr. Garbush, who reached the age of 62 years, through his kind disposition won a host of friends who join with the bereaved ones in their loss.  Although he became estranged from his family through unknown cause, we should not condemn nor convict, for he is in higher hands and his work will following in his footsteps.
