Well known Somers Pioneer Passes Away
"Says the Kenosha News:  Jacob Denig, a well known pioneer German farmer of the Town of Somers and a man well known in all parts of the County, died at his home in the Town of  Somers Friday night.  Death was due to the natural decline of old age.   The deceased was 85 years of age and had been born in Germany.  He came to this country many years ago and had been a resident of Somers since the pioneer days.
The funeral will be held from St. George's Church in Kenosha and the remains will be interred at St. George's cemetery.
