MRS WEINSTOCK, EARLY PIONEER, DIES OF OLD AGE

HAD LIVED IN COUNTY SINCE 1852 OR 1853; HER MARRIAGE FIRST ON RECORD HERE

The death at her home, Germania and Division streets, here at 8:16 a. m. yesterday of Mrs. Anna K. Weinstock marked the passing of one of the earliest Eau Claire pioneer residents, for she had lived in Eau Claire county continuously ever since 1852 or 1853. It is also understood that her marriage to the late Christian Weinstock of Brackett, which was solemnized in Eau Claire in 1856 (1858?), was the first marriage In Eau Claire county of which there Is a record at the court house here.
Death came peacefully after an illness of about six weeks. She was 83 years old. Most of her children were at her bedside when she breathed her last. Death was due to the infirmities of old age. Up to six weeks ago, when she became ill, she had been in good health and unusually active for a woman of her advanced years.
The date of the funeral has not been fixed but it will probably be held next Tuesday morning. Definite announcement, however, will be made later.
Mrs. Weinstock is survived by three sons, John, Henry and Michael, two daughters, Mrs. Kate Schmidt of Stockbridge, Wis., and Mrs. Anna Beaver of Foster, twenty-two grandchildren and five great-grandchildren.
Her husband died 34 years ago.
Mrs. Weinstocks' maiden name was Anna K. Adams and she came to Eau Claire with her father in 1852 on 1853, when this section was a wilderness. She was born at Bonn, Germany, and came to America with her parents when she was about three years old. The Adams family lived for a while at Milwaukee, then La Crosse, coming to Eau Claire county in the early fifties. In 1856 she was married to Christian Weinstock and they took up their home on what is known as the Weinstock farm at Brackett, where John Weinstock, one of the sons, now lives. She lived practically her entire life on this farm. Of late years she has also had the residence at Germania and Division streets here but has spent most of her time on the farm wlth her son.
The Weinstock farm at Brackett is one of the oldest farms In Eau Claire county, being one of the very first farms to be opened up in this section.

Could this Henry have been a brother to Christian?
