      PIONEER ANSWERS CALL. Aaron Leister, last of the family of Isaac and (Lovina Barnes) Leister, was born on the old Leister homestead at Granville, Wis. Aug 28, 1849. His boyhood and life was spend upon the old farm which was settled by his parents in 1844. On Nov. 7, 1872, he was united in marriage to Miss Kathryn Schlafer. This union was blessed with nine children, all of whom are living except one daughter, Alpha, who died in her youth. When the Fond du Lac road was begun as a toll road, Mrs. Leister furnished and hauled gravel from his farm, thus helping to establish one of the principal highways into Milwaukee. For over twenty years he served as clerk of School District No. 10 always being actively interested in school matters. He also was a devout Christian, a diligent church member and a champion of the right. Mr. Leister was a man of many sterling qualities and was always received as a friend. His nature was extremely kindly and he was well liked by all who knew him. In April, 1916, Mr. and Mrs. Leister moved to their home in the village where they have resided since. A short time after their arrival here, an attack of diabetes caused him some trouble, but his firm will and iron constitution over came this and he lived in good health until shortly before Christmas when he as again stricken with diabetes. This caused ill health which ended in his death at 5 p.m. Jan. 17. He is survived by his wife, three daughters, Mrs. Theo. Miller of Granville, Mrs. Henry Erdman of Milwaukee and Florence of Milwaukee and five sons, Walter, Calvin and Eugene of Granville, Frank of Youngstown, Pa., Abner of Winchester, Idaho and nine grandchildren.
