Tombstone Tuesday - Gottlieb Polsfuss

This is the tombstone of Gottlieb Polsfuss located at Westfield East Cemetery, Westfield, Marquette, Wisconsin. He was the father of Alma Marie (Polsfuss) Schauer and he is my 2nd Great Grandfather.

According to my notes, Gottlieb was born 1860 in Posen, Prussia to Christian and Augusta Polsfuss, though I am not 100% confident about the parent's first names. He was naturalized in 1870. He married Hulda A. Schulke July 7, 1885 and they had at least 8 children. He died in 1939 and was buried at Westfield East Cemetery near his son Edward, who died in 1927.

The tombstone is transcribed as follows:
1860 - 1939
