Charles (Gustav) Broege
1874 - 1899
Watertown Gazette, 12 22 1899
Chas. G. Broege, one of Watertown’s best known and most popular young men died at his parents’ home, William Broege and wife, 1039 Main Street, on Wednesday evening, December 13, 1899, aged 24 years.
His death had been expected for some time, hence it was no surprise to our people when the announcement was made. He suffered greatly with heart and other troubles for weeks previous to his death, but always entertained hopes of recovery. For years previous he was engaged in the painting business, being employed not only in Watertown but in a number of cities hereabouts, hence he formed a large acquaintance, all of whom held him in the highest esteem.
He was a member of the Modern Woodmen of America and of the Plattdeutcher Verein.
Sunday afternoon his funeral was held from the German M. E. Church, and was very largely attended.
Is buried in Oak Hill Cemetery, with first name Gustav, apparent middle name
