OBITUARY. We are pained to announce the death of one of the most industrious farmers and citizens of the Town of Mequon, Mr. Andrew Zaun, who died at his residence last Sunday of inflammation of the lungs, and was buried to-day. The deceased was born in Mequon in the year 1845, where his parents settled in coming from Germany in the fall of 1840. His father, also names Andrew, died in 1865 and in the year following, the deceased married Miss Caroline Mueller who survives him as also nine children. He was at the time of death the President of the Mequon Farmer Club and was highly esteemed by all who knew him for his sterling qualities, both as a man and a citizen. His loss will be much felt by the community while to the growing family and to his wife it will be an irreparable loss.
He was a brother of Jacob Zaun, Esq of Columbia Mills in this city and of John B. Zaun, a son-in-law of ours in Milwaukee. We deeply sympathize with the bereaved family; time alone will assuage their grief and sorrow. May he rest in peace.
