His funeral took place Tuesday afternoon from St. Mark's Lutheran church, of which congregation he was president for 25 years until he retired on account of old age.


The interment was in Oak Hill cemetery, his sons acting as pallbearers.


Mr. Lehmann was one of the best known residents in this section of Wisconsin, and during his long residence hereabouts he was always held in very high esteem.  His death is sincerely mourned as a good and noble man.
