      C. F. MUSEUS PASSES AWAY FOLLOWING OPERATION AT BARRON

      Among the older citizens of this community who have answered the final summons within the last few days is C. F. Museus, veteran of the Civil War and one of the pioneer residents of this city. Mr. Museus was taken suddenly ill on Monday of this week and was hurried to the Barron hospital the following day, where an operation was performed. For a time he appeared to revive, but on Wednesday he grew weaker and passed away peacefully at 8;30 o'clock that evening, surrounded by all the members of his family, except his sons, Dr. E. F. Museus and Dr. Ben Museus, who are in the West. They are expected to arrive today in response to telegrams.

      Funeral services will be held at the residence in Chetek on Saturday afternoon at 2 o'clock. An obituary will appear in our next week's issue. [Friday, July 10, 1925, Chetek Alert, Chetek, Wisconsin.]

      CHARLES F. MUSEUS

      Charles F. Musus was born in Oslo, at that time Christiania, Norway, in 1847. His parents brought their family to the United States in 1851, came to Wisconsin, and settled near Oconomowoc, in Jefferson County. There his father engaged in the carpenter trade as well as in farming. In 1880 they came to Barron County, locating in Turtle Lake township, and later moving to Chetek.

      As a boy Mr. Museus had little opportunity for an education and started out early for himself. With the opening of the Civil War he enlisted in the 28th Wisconsin Volunteer Infantry, and served along the Tombigbee river, as well as at the attack on Fort Blakely and the Spanish forts. Later he was sent under Sheridan to protect the Texas border in the troubles incident to the overthrow of Emperor Maximilian 1 and the evacuation of the French from Mexico.

      He was united in marriage in 1869 to Miss Anna Johnson of Alderly, Minnesota, and to this union five children were born, C. H. Museus of Cameron; Mrs. Ida Patchin and Mrs. R. M. Post of Chetek, Dr. E. F. Museus of Fargo, North Dakota, and Dr. H. B. Museus of Beach, North Dakota, all of whom survive. Mrs. Museus passed away several years ago.
      His death occurred on Wednesday, July 8, following an operation at the Barron hospital, and funeral services were held Saturday, July 11, at two o'clock in the afternoon in the Lutheran church, Rev. Lund of Chetek and Rev. Swenson of Barron officiating. The remains were laid to rest in Lake View cemetery.

      Mr. Museus was the last of three brothers. He was among the early residents of this community and leaves behind him a large circle of friends who will deeply mourn his death, for they knew him as a kind, generous and public spirited citizen. For years he had been an active member in the local G. A. R. Post and was also a member of the Norwegian Lutheran church. The many friends in this community extend their heartfelt sympathy to the members of the family in the hour of their sorrow. [Friday, July 17, 1925, Chetek Alert, Chetek, Wisconsin.]
