From "The Sheboygan Press", Friday, May 28, 1926. Contributed by his grandson, Frederick G. Beisser.

Plymouth. -- The Rev. F. W. Beisser, Pastor of the Salem Reformed Church for the past twenty-four years, died at his home, 435 Smith Street, at 12:25 a.m. today after a lingering illness.

The services for the Rev. Mr. Beisser, who was a graduate of Mission House College and Seminary, will be held at 2 p.m. Monday. Private services attended only by immediate relatives will be held Monday morning and the body will be removed to Salem Reformed Church where it will lie in state until the afternoon services.

Several pastors from the Mission House are to take part in the funeral services.

The Rev. Mr. Beisser was born Dec. 14, 1872, at Bremen, Germany, the son of Georg and Johanne Beisser. He came to America when 17 years of age and made his home at Spencerville, Indiana, but in September, 1897, he entered the Mission House to prepare for the ministry. He was graduated from the college in 1900 and from the seminary in 1903.

He was married to Miss Emilie Heyer, Franklin, on Aug. 7, 1903, and the following children were born to them: Misses Ruth, Esther, Alma and Marion; and three sons, Calvin, Fred and Carl. The latter died in 1918. Other survivors are two sisters, Mrs. Christine (George) Lies of Spencerville, Ind., and Mrs. Johanne (Fritz) Weiss, Oldenburg, Germany, and one brother, Christian Beisser of Bremen.

Note from Fred, his grandson:

Rev. F. W. Beisser was orphaned in Bremen and brought to the USA at age 17 by his uncle, Rev. Gottlieb Beisser.
