Five children were born to them, but three of whom, Paul and Mrs. Max Wegner of Marshfield and Mrs. Otto Roessler of this city, survive to console their father. Mr. and Mrs. Pirwitz came to this county in 1884 and settled at Lake Mills. They lived there for four years and then came to Clark County and located on a farm in town of Grant, which remained their home until three years ago, when they came to Neillsville to spend their declining years.
