     GODFRIED RETZLOFF. An enterprising agriculturist and representative citizen whose interest in public affairs has ever been of the most sincere order, Godfried Retzloff commands the unqualified respect of his fellow men. He was born in Germany, January 23, 1859, and was there reared to the age of fourteen years. In 1873 he accompanied his parents, Charles and Eva (Preskorn) Retzloff, to America and the family located in Pennsylvania, whence they removed to Sauk County, Wisconsin, in 1879. Here the father was engaged in farming operations until his demise in 1911. Further data concerning the Retzloff family is given in the sketch of Herman Retzloff on other pages of this work. Godfried Retzloff maintained his home in the Keystone State for six years after his parents departed for Wisconsin. There he was married and after that event, in 1885, he, too, came to Sauk County. He purchased a farm of eighty acres in Excelsior Township and subsequently added to that estate so that his present farm comprises 139 acres. * He has some fine buildings on his place and recently erected a new barn, 30 by 70 feet. He raises Holstein cattle and has a herd of about thirty head. He is a republican in his political proclivities but votes for the man rather than the party. He has never aspired to public office of any description but gives a whole-hearted support to measures projected for the public good.
Mr. Retzloff has been twice married. In Pennsylvania was celebrated his marriage to Miss Bertha Snyder, who bore him ten children: William and Charles are deceased; Mary is the wife of Orlan Brimer and they have five children; Herman is mentioned on other pages of this work; Louise is the wife of Adolph Krueger and they have one child, Milton; Marthy married Henry Ashenbach and they have one child, Henry: Alta is deceased; Caroline and Eva are at home; and a son died in infancy. Mrs. Retzloff died in 1893. Mr. Retzloff married for his second wife Mrs. Lena Buhr, who had four children by her first husband: Alta, Della, Lillian and one deceased. There were no children born of this second marriage and Mrs. Retzloff died in 1911.
Mr. Retzloff is a man of marked enterprise and initiative. Self made in the most significant sense of the word, he has progressed steadily toward the goal of success until he is recognized today as one of the prominent farmers in Excelsior Township. He is warm-hearted and generous in disposition, is fond of home life, and is held in high esteem by all who know him. Gottfried Retzlaff immigrated with Charles Retzlaff and Eva Prieskorn on 3 December 1873 at New York; with Eva's brother Gottfried Prieskorn.

Eva was the loving mother of three children, Arthur Klagos, Harland Klagos and Georgia (Rowe) Altizer. She lived in Madison for forty years before moving to Appleton in 1986, and becoming a member of Grace Lutheran Church. Her faith in God never faltered, even in her last days when she recited with perfection her favorite psalms, creeds, and prayers. Eva will be greatly missed by her son, Harland (Sheila) Klagos, Manitowish Waters, WI; her daughter, Georgia (Robert) Altizer, Appleton; daughter-in-laws, Margaret Klagos, Waunakee, WI; Norma Klagos, Madison; her grandchildren, Kevin (Michelle) Klagos; Kent (Sally) Klagos; Douglas (Carole) Klagos; David (Sue) Klagos; Mikeleene (William) Rowlands; Sally Losco; Sue (Tim) Aucremann; Mary Gundlach; Ned Altizer and Eve Altizer. She is further survived by twenty-two great-grandchildren; 16 great-great-grandchildren; her very special family, Wm. and Denise Buenzli, and their children Heidi, Brett, Tyler and Haley; and many very special friends. She was preceded in death by one son, Arthur Klagos; a brother Herman Retzlaff; sisters, Mayme Brimmer; Louise Krueger; Martha Bittrick and Caroline Wiseman. Eva’s Funeral Service will be held at Noon, on Tuesday, June 11, 2002, at ST. PETER’S LUTHERAN CHURCH, 345 North Pine Street, Reedsburg, with Rev. Kevin Kohnke officiating. The interment will be held at St. John’s Lutheran Cemetery, Reedsburg. Friends will be received at Wichmann Funeral Home on Sunday, June 9, from 4 until 7 p.m; at Fitch-Lawrence-Sanfillippo-Cress Funeral Home, 6021 University Avenue, Madison, on Monday, June 10 from 4 until 7 p.m., and again at the church on Tuesday from 10:30 a.m. until the time of service. The family would like to thank the staff at Franciscan Care Center for their loving care of Eva since March 18, 2002, where she danced the Charleston and sang songs. Eva Rowe was a woman of style, courage, determination, grace, and dignity. Even in the most tragic of times, she remained strong and provided for her family. She set a positive example for her family and was unrelentingly supportive and compassionate. Eva Rowe lived her life with conviction, consistent with her strong values.
