HAERTEL Charles Charles Haertel, d. 1878 Source: Adams County Press, Saturday August 31, 1878 SUICIDE.-We learn from the Wood County Reporter that Charley HAERTEL, of Stevens Point, committed suicide on Friday the 16th. According to the Reporter he was a young man highly respected at Stevens Point, and a broom maker by profession. He was blind but could make the circuit of the city with little inconvenience. On Friday he was seen going towards the river, about 10:30 o'clock; but nothing was thought of it as he was accustomed to go whither he chose alone. A little later articles of clothing were found about the middle of the bridge, which excited suspicion, and search was made resulting in finding the body at about 9 o'clock Saturday morning. Mr. HAERTEL was a gentlemanly fellow, and an adept upon the piano and organ, very communicative and always social. The rash act was undoubtedly premeditated, as home matters had been unpleasant for some time, his father having taken a second wife who it is alleged did not make home pleasant for the friendless suicide. He was 26 years of age. HAMILTON, Clifford Herbert Clifford Herbert Hamilton, d. 1911 Surnames: Clarson, Hamilton Source: Necedah Republican, Thursday Sept 21 1911, Page 5 Clifford Herbert Hamilton, son of Edward R. and Mary J. Hamilton, was born in the town of Rockbridge, Richland County, Wis., December 31, 1895, and departed this life September 16, 1911, aged 15 years, 8 months and 16 days at the time of his death.

John Smith of Strongs Prairie and was laregely attended by schoolmates and neighbors of the deceased, after which the remains were taken to Necedah and laid to rest in the Bayview cemetery. Clifford was a kind and dutiful son and will be greatly missed in the home as well as among his young associates. A father, mother, and one brother, besides many more distant relatives and friends remain to mourn their loss. Those who attended the funeral from a distance were Mr. and Mrs. Sidney Clarson of Rockbridge, Wis., uncle and aunt of the deceased, and Orcut Hamilton of Dover, Minnesota, an uncle. In Clifford's death the family meets with a great loss and are overwhelmed in grief and sorrow. In this they certainly have the profound sympathy of neighbors and friends far and near.

The funeral was held on Saturday. Her death resulted from anemia. She had been ill ever since last December, and everything that loving hearts and skilled physicians could do to preserve and prolong her life was done, but to no avail and Thursday evening the gentle spirit left its suffering and pain for a more beautiful home above. Deceased was the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. A. S. Hamilton and was born in this village about 14 years ago, and here she spent her early childhood, moving with her parents to Hancock about four years ago; and many a little schoolmate in Friendship was made sad by the news of her untimely death; and they unite with older friends in extending to the sorrowing parents a deep and profound sympathy.

Hammond received a telegram saying his brother Clinton, who resided in Iowa, could not live. M. F. and his brother, Daniel, took the evening train from Necedah and arrived at their destination the following evening to find that their brother was buried that afternoon, the 13th. He was taken one week before with inflammation of the bowels, and although he had the best medical skill and kindest care nothing could arrest the disease and he passed away Friday morning. Clinton was fifty years old, the youngest of a family of eight, four boys and four girls, and was always considered very healthy. He had a happy, cheerful disposition which won him friends wherever he went. His father, Jonathon Hammond, came from New York and settled in Adams County, Wisconsin, in 1851. About 23 years ago Clinton went to Chicasaw, Iowa, later was married to Alice Feena. Besides his widow, he leaves a family of four children, one girl, eighteen, married, and three boys, the oldest twelve, the youngest, four. Although his family and friends miss him and mourn for him deeply, they are comforted by his dying words of faith and hope. He said to his wife a few hours before his death, "Alice, I shall be in Heaven to-day." And later he said, "I shall partake of the Lord's supper to-night in Heaven." He grieved to leave his family, otherwise he was ready and willing to go. He has been a church member for several years.

Berrine Harris had been in Evanston some months where she had two sisters living. Saturday she went to spend the day with Martha Zuhr, a girl about her own age. Miss Harris was sitting on a chair near a window in the Zuhr house, and Miss Zuhr was standing near her looking out of it, when young Zuhr took down his father's gun, an old-fashioned, muzzle-loading piece, and pointed it at the girls. Berrine Harris, alarmed, exclaimed, "Look out, Fred, it might be loaded!" At that instant the boy pressed the trigger, the gun was discharged, and the load of shot, narrowly missing his sister, struck Miss Harris squarely between the eyes. Berrine was the youngest of four daughters of Mrs. Helena Harris, a widow, residing at Arkdale. The father of the girls died when Berrine was a little child. Some years ago Miss Minnie Hanson, a young lady whose parents resided near Arkdale was shot and killed in a similar manner by her brother.

Mrs. Harrison was a native of Adams county, having been born at the residence of her parents, the late Mr. and Mrs. William Ward, in Twin Valley in the Town of Springville. Mrs. Harrison was a bright, delightful, charming lady, who won all hearts by the graces of mind, manner and person; but over all these hung the shadow of that fell destroyer that sooner or later carries off the fairest and loveliest of earth. After her marriage she and her husband lived at Twin Valley, Friendship, Wausau, Grand Rapids, Merrill and Tomah. In all these places, her early decease will tenderly touch a large circle of friends. She leaves a husband, two little sons, and one brother as her nearest kindred. HARRISON, Henriette A. Henriette A. Harrison, 1835 - 1899 Surnames: Black, Crosby, Harrison Source: Adams County Press, Saturday 11 March 1899 P5 Henriette A. Harrison died at Bloomfield Nebraska, Sunday February 26th, 1899, from nervous prostration following an attack of la grippe and producing paralysis of the nerves of the bronchial tubes. Mrs. HARRISON was born in Friendship, Allegany county, New York, on the 12th day of November, 1835, and it was there that she lived and grew to womanhood. About 1855, she was married to Dr. James M. Harrison and they made their home in Friendship in that county, until 1859, when they came to Wisconsin and settled in Friendship in Adams county. Soon after the breaking out of the War of the Rebellion Dr. Harrison enlisted in the Fourth Regiment Wisconsin Volunteers; and went south, his family remaining in Friendship during his absence. About a year after the regiment went south his health failed and he was mustered out and discharged from military service. In 1864, having regained his health, Dr. Harrison re-enlisted in Company K of the Thirty-eighth Wisconsin volunteers and continued in service until the close of the war. During all this time Mrs. Harrison bore bravely and with patriotic devotion all the trials, fears and privations that fell to the lot of herself and little ones as the wife of a soldier absent from home and amid the dangers of war. Several years subsequent to the war the family lived at Easton, at which place the doctor practiced his profession. Then they came back to Friendship, where they remained until the death of Doctor Harrison which occurred about seven years ago. After his death Mrs. Harrison made her home with her daughter, Mrs. Alex. Black, at Marinette, Wisconsin and then went to Bloomfield, Nebraska, where she had a home with her oldest daughter and husband, Mr. and Mrs. Lewis G. Crosby, at whose residence she died. Mrs. Harrison left four sons and two daughters surviving her--Leon A. Harrison of Tomah, Wisconsin, Russ Harrison of Knoxville, Tennessee, Clarence and Scott of Bloomfield, Nebraska, and Mrs. Alex Black of Marinette, Wisconsin. HARRISON, J. M., MD J. M. HARRISON, 1832 - 1892 Surnames: Black, Crosby, Harrison Source: Adams County Press, January 23, 1892, Page 5 DR. J. M. HARRISON DEAD: A Well-known Physician and Citizen at his Home in this Village: Dr. J. M. Harrison died of heart disease at his home in Friendship at 10:30 o'clock in the forenoon of January 20, 1892.Mr. Harrison was born in Friendship, Alleghany County, New York, on April 1st, 1832, and came to this place in 1859, where he resided off and on up to the time of his death. Deceased was a member of the Masonic order, an old soldier, and known as an honest, upright man, and a physician of 35 years' experience. Death, however, came to this patient sufferer with the kindest of relief. For years that dread disease had been sapping his life, and medical aid could afford scarcely any relief, to say naught of cure. A few months ago he sacrificed his home here to attend the Keeley Institute, of Illinois, and while there he grew rapidly worse and had to return home; steadily the disease progressed, and slowly but surely the strong constitution of the old genetleman yielded. The best possible care has been given to the patient by the untiring ministrations of his faithful wife. Peace be to his ashes. Mr. Harrison leaves behind him to deeply mourn his departure, a faithful wife, and seven children. The children are scattered as follows: Clarence, Ned and Scott are at home; Leon is at Merrill, Wisconsin; Russ is at Knoxville, Tennessee; Mrs. Louise Crosby is at Hubbard, Nebraska and Mrs. Clara Black is at Omaha, Nebraska. HARRISON, James Surname: Harrison From the Adams County Press, February 4, 1871, Page 3 Surname: Harrison DIED: Harrison--At Friendship, on the 20th of January, 1871, of consumption, Col. James Harrison, in his 68th year. Colonel Harrison formerly resided at Friendship, Allegany County, New York, and removed to this place in the Fall of (blurred, might be 1858 or 1863?). Col. Harrison was an estimable and kindly citizen. For years he had been sadly afflicted. The funeral services took place at his late residence, and were conducted by Rev. J. H. McChesney. In the hearts of this community there will ever remain a kindly feeling of sympathy and respect for the good old man gone to his rest. HARRISON, Judge Jerome B. Judge Jerome B. HARRISON, 1826 - 1888 Surnames: Fryett, Harrison, Stowell Source: Adams County Press, Saturday June 16, 1888 P5 The people of Friendship were sadly surprised on Saturday evening by a telegram announcing the death of the late Judge Jerome B. Harrison, whichoccurred on the previous day, near Box Butte, Nebraska. Mr. Harrison was born in Friendship, Alleganey County, New York, May 22nd, 1826, and therefore, had just entered the 63rd year of his age at the time of his decease. He was married to Miss Sarah Stowell, at Friendship, New York, by whom he had several children, four of whom, three sons and a daughter, survive him. The surviving children are, Herbert E. Harrison, of Knights' Landing, California, Robert and Carl Harrison and Mrs. Lola Fryett, of Box Butte, Nebraska. In the fall of 1862 the deceased moved his family to Wisconsin and settled in Friendship. From that time forward until the spring of 188-(no ending number printed) when he was stricken with a mental malady from which he never recovered, he was prominently and creditably connected with the interests of this county. So strong was his hold upon the popular favor that, although politically a strong Democratic partizan, he was three times elected to the office of County Judge in a county two-thirds of the voters Republican in principle. In the discharge of duties arising from thatoffice, he proved himself capable, sympathetic and incorruptibly honest. In his family and social relations he was pleasant, affable, courteous and obliging. Few there are, indeed, who knew him, who do not honor his memory and sadden with the thought of his death. The remains of Judge Harrison, accompanied by his son Robert, reached Friendship on Tuesday morning, and in the afternoon of that day, with Masonic ceremonies, of which order the deceased was a member, were committed to their final resting place beside those of his wife in Mount Repose cemetery. A large concourse followed the remains to the grave, and after the interment, returned to the village where solemn services were further held in the Congregational church, conducted by Rev. P. R. Staples, assisted by Elder McChesney. HARRISON, Sarah (nee STOWELL) Surnames: Fryett, Harrison, Stowell Source: Adams County Press, Saturday Feb 28, 1885, Page 5 Died--Harrison--In Friendship, February 19, 1885, Sarah A. Harrison, aged 57 years, 8 months and 7 days. Mrs. Harrison was born in Locke, Oneida County, New York, on the 12th day of June, 1828. When she was nine years of age, her father, the late Luther Stowell, of Friendship, Allegany County, New York, removed with his family to that place, and it was there that she grew to womanhood, and acquired many of those graces of mind and heart that so greatly endeared her to a large and ever widening circle of friends. Of her it can truly be said, "None knew her but to love her, None named her but to praise." At the age of nineteen, on September 14th, 1847, she was married to Honorable Jerome B. Harrison, who afterwards, for many years, was County Judge of this county. The newly married pair, however, made their home near Friendship, New York, until September, 1862, when they came to Wisconsin and settled permanently here in Friendship, and it was here that the writer first became acquainted with them. Theirs was indeed a happy family circle, no wife was more devoted to a loving--almost idolizing--husband, who trusted her as his safest and surest counselor. And yet the woman who could thus win and hold the affections of a strong man, was all her life physically so weak and frail, as to be an almost constant source of anxiety to her friends. But intellectually she was a strong woman, and the patience and sweetness with which she bore all her sufferings endeared her but the more deeply to her friends. Though physically weak, she did not allow that to cut her off from an active interest in all those measures that related to the social and moral, welfare and advancement of the community in which she lived. She was the wise, energetic and trusted counselor and friend of all the workers for good who came within her circle of effort. In looking over the years of his past life, the writer cannnot recall one whose influence upon the community has been more marked for good, or in whose career so little may be found to censure. The last year of her life had its cup of sorrow more than filled to the brim. The sad story is too well known to the people of Adams county. In the early summer, the husband was suddenly, and almost without premonition, stricken down. The over-taxed brain that had toiled and worked for and borne the cares of others, gave way, and this woman saw the husband of her love and pride stand before her a mental wreck. Even then, the brave spirit bore up with a strength that excited the wonder of all. But at last the day came when it was necessary he should be taken from his home. She mourned him as one more than dead, and longing for rest and peace the brave spirit passed lovingly, gladly to the bosom of her God. "There is rest in Heaven." A noble Christian woman, whose influence for good none may be able to measure, has passed from earth.Mrs. Harrison leaves four children--Herbert E. Harrison of Knight's Landing, California; Mrs, Lola Fryett, of Blue Springs, Nebraska, who was a watcher by the bedside of her mother the last two weeks of her life; and Robert and Carl, the latter but twelve years of age. HARWOOD, Ellsworth Ellsworth Harwood, d. 1885 Surnames: Harwood, Morgan Source: Adams County Press, Saturday Oct 17, 1885, Page 4 Two Men Drowned Last Sunday Forenoon: Two young men, Ellsworth Harwood, son of J. W. Harwood of New Chester, and Frank Morgan of Jackson, were drowned in Wolf Lake, a small but very deep body of water in the latter town. The facts, as we gather them, are these: The two young men were out together on the lake, in a boat. In another boat were also a party of young ladies and gentlemen. Just before the catastrophe, Harwood and Morgan were noticed by the other party, and were standing up in the boat apparently engaged in a playful scuffle. For a moment the attention of the observers was attracted away, and when they next looked around, Harwood and Morgan were both in the water and their boat capsized.The men with the young ladies hurried to the shore to land the ladies, as their boat already had all the load it could carry, and that done, hastened with all possible speed to assist the drowning men; but before they could reach them, both had sunk to the bottom not to rise again alive. The bodies were recovered about three o'clock in the afternoon, after being in the water about four hours. The funeral was on Tuesday last, and was attended by a very large number of people, the solemn services being conducted by Rev. P. R. Staples, of this place, and Rev. Angus Sellers of Oxford. The remains of the drowned men were interred in the cemetery at Oxford. HARWOOD George W., d. 1942 From the Adams County Times, Adams/Friendship, Adams County Wisconsin. Friday, December 18, 1942 George W. Harwood is Killed when struck by Car DIES OF INJURIES IN HOSPITAL HERE TUESDAY MORNING Another life was added to Adams county's traffic casaulty list Tuesday morning when George W. Harwood, 63, Friendship, was fatally injured while on his way to work at the North Wester railroad yards here. Harwood was struck by an automobile driven by Will Green, Big Flats, while crossing Highway 13 a short distance north of the Adams-Friendship High schol, and just opposite the home of John Wincell about 7:30 a.m. He suffered a fractured skull and other injuries as he was hurtled over the right fender o fthe machine and against the windshield post. Death came about 15 minutes after he was taken to the Adams-Friendship hospital. the death was called accidental by Coroner Robert W. Roseberry and no inquest will be held. Green told Sheriff S. R. Stone that he sounded the horn and applied the brakes when he observed Harwood crossing the street in the path of his car. Apparently there were no witnesses to the accident. Le Roy Drew, first on the scene, reported it to Sheriff Stone. Green claimed that Harwood failed to heed his warning and as the car skidded on the icy pavement the driver attempted to avoid striking the man by swinging to the left. Green was driving south to Adams to begin work at that William Anderson garage and reported that visibility on that dark and snowy morning was poor. It is believed Harwood was crossing the highway to take advantage of a short-cut through the west section of the city to the yards. The victim was born in Tachan, Poland, on March 20, 1879. He was married to Miss Eva Bishop in Chicago 37 years ago. Mr. Harwood is survived by his wife and six children, Rudolph, Gustav, Mrs. Anna Tomz, Helen, Mrs. Mary Roth, and Genevieve, all of Chicago. Mr. Harwood would have been eligible for retirement from the railroad here next year. Funeral services will be held at St. Joseph's Catholic church in Adams at 9 o'clock Friday morning, December 18.

Mr. Havlik had been apparently well and with the exception of complaining for a day or two before hs decease of severe pains in his breast, he had shown no symptoms of illness; for this he had nothing done except to have it rubbed with alcohol or other linament. Saturday he worked around the place and had come to Friendship and traded at the stores where he laughed and joked with friends and seemed to be in good spirits. Saturday evening he was at home and one of his neighbors, John Brozek, was over, and they were having a pleasant visit, when suddenly Mr. Havlik rose from his chair, exclaiming "My God, I'm burning up," took a step or two and fell into his wife's arms and was carried by her and Mr. Brozek to the bed and Dr. Winston was called and also the son, Frank, who was in the village, but before they could reach the home, Mr. Havlik had expired. The doctor pronounced the disease heart failure and the immediate cause of the death was syncope. The family have the sympathy of the entire community in their bereavement. Mr. Havlik had resided on his farm purchased of Joseph Pflager, in the town of Preston, only four years at the time of his decease, coming here from Chicago, but in that time he had gained the respect of all who knew him and was the possessor of many warm friends among the people of this county. He was a devoted husband and loving father. He was born in the village of Uhlisky Janoric, in Bohemia, June 21, 1859, and was 48 years old and a few months at the time of his death on the 5th of October. He leaves his wife, Anna, and the children, Frank, Anton, William, Joseph, Fannie and Anna, to mourn his departure from this life. The funeral services were conducted at the house at one o'clock Tuesday by Rev. J. M. Lavendar, of the Congregational church of Friendship and the remains were laid to rest in Mt. Repose cemetery west of the village. The funeral was largely attended by friends and neighbors who came to pay the last tribute of respect to one whom they had learned to esteem during his residence among them. The following are the names of old friends of Mr. Havlik who acted as pallbearers: J. Baumel, A. Splitek, C. Lukas, Karel Kulha, F. Zika and J. Vodika.

During his residence in this county he became well known to many of its citizens, and though years have intervened since they have met him, the announcement of his death will cause them pangs of deep regret. Mr. Henry was a man of robust convictions, and fearless in expressing and maintaining them. In his social relations, he was very exemplary--one of the kindest of husbands and fathers and neighbors, prompt and quick in sympathy, and active in the performance of those things that a generous sympathy suggested.

For weeks he hung between life and death, and when the immediate crisis was passed, it was only to find that the lower limbs were paralyzed. All that affection could prompt and money accomplished was done in his behalf. A few days before his death he was attacked by a typhoid malarial fever, and in his feeble state its course was rapid and fatal.

Jones, her father, mother, and sisters, Mrs. Edith Jones and Miss Belle Henry, were immedicately summoned, but all that physicians and friends could do was to no avail, and she quietly passed away, April 15th, 1914 after an illness of only 30 hours. She was conscious to the very last, saying to her loved ones "Goodbye, I must go," closed her eyes and fell asleep. Vera was of a very affectionate and happy disposition, and her winsome manner won the hearts of all her acquaintances. It can be truthfully said of her that "None knew her, but to love her." She was the youngest daughter in a family of six girls, three of the sisters, Mrs. Edith Jones, Mrs. Alice Austin and Miss Belle Henry, being present at the funeral, Mrs. Etta Walton, of Port Angeles, Washington, and Mrs. Roy Trumbull, of Fort Shaw, Montana, were unable to come.

Owing to the inclemency of the weather the funeral ceremonies of the O.E.S. were conducted in the church, by members of the Quincy chapter, and closed the services. Many and beautiful were the floral offerings, mute testimonials of the love of her friends. The sympathy of all goes out to the stricken family in their great sorrow.

Higbee, d. 1882 Surname: Higbee From the Adams County Press, Sat April 1, 1882, Page 6 Column 3 Died--On the 10th of March 1882, in the town of Austinburg, Ashtabula county, Ohio, Jesse M. Higbee, aged 89 years, 5 months and 5 days. Mr. Higbee was born in Westmoreland, Oneida county, New York, and removed with a young family to Crawford county, Pennsylvania about the year 1826, and two or three years thereafter to Cherry Valley, in the county where he died. The greater part of his life was spent in Cherry Valley. When he first settled there the country around him was almost a complete wilderness, and his first cabin, built at the center of the town, was in a dense forest with no road leading to it from any quarter. But he lived to see the forests cleared away, large dairy farms opened all around him, and Ashtabula and adjoining counties thickly settled with the most intelligent and thrifty population of any farming district in the State.On all questions of reform Mr. Higbee was always in advance of public sentiment. He was a pioneer in the anti-slavery movement in his county and as early as 1843-44 such lecturers as Garrison, Frederick Douglas, the Fosters and Parker Pillsbury found a home in his then humble dwelling when doing anti-slavery work in that section of country. His wife, with whom he lived over half a century, preceded him to the grave a few years since. He leaves four sons and four daughters, all well settled in life. One son and one daughter reside in this State; also grand and great-grandchildren and many old friends and acquaintances. The son living in this State is Mr. Jesse M. Higbee of Plainville, for ten years our popular and efficient School Superintendent. Kind old "Father Higbee!" Not faultless but his heart was always sympathetic, and in the outcome was always on the better side. The writer remembers and mourns him as one from whom he received genuine kindness in the years long ago, during a period of great trouble and affliction.

Hill, one of the pioneer settlers of the vilage of Friendship passed to his long home at the residence of his daughter, Mrs. Minnie Hill Bursker, on the farm in Manistee County, Michigan, on the 19th of August, 1907, at the age of eighty years.Mr. HILL will be remembered by the old settlers here as one of the respected citizens of this county and as one of the men who helped to build the village and he conducted a wagon shop here for years and the Friendship wagon was known all over the country. Once in awhile some farmer drives into Friendship now with one of the wagons carrying the sign "Friendship Wagon" on the box and on the axle can be deciphered the legend "A. J. & C. L. Hill, Makers, Friendship, Wisconsin" showing that honest workmanship and good materials went into the work of the Hill wagon shop. Mr. Hill was highly regarded in this community and for years held the office of County Coroner, and was also a member of the school board of this village for many years. The friends here will regret to hear of his death and will extend their sympathy to the only surviving child, Mrs. Bursker. We were handed a letter by A. F. Hill, some time ago, which unfortunately became mislaid and has just come to hand from which we give the following excerpts: Arcadia Michigan, August 30, 1907 Mr. A. F. Hill "Dear Sir---You will be somewhat surprised to hear from me but I wanted to write to someone at the old home, and I knew of no one who would be more apt to be there. Father died the 19th of this month and I thought I would like it published in the Press. He had been failing very fast for the past few months, and for two weeks he had such smothering spells; seemed almost impossible for him to breath, he couldn't lie down, and on that night I called him to supper and he started and fell. He only breathed a few hours. Of course the Doctor called it heart failure. If he had lived until November he would have been eighty. I am the only one left of the family; I suppose you heard of Ella's death three years ago. I wrote to Mrs. Pierce, but after that Belle Carleton wrote me that Mrs. Pierce had been dead for some time...Pa was buried by the Masons of Frankfort as was always his wish and laid by Art and Ella. I would like very much to make Friendship a visit but that is all...we live nine miles from Frankfort and ten miles from Arcadia, both of which are beautiful places on the lake shore. I wish you would remember me to all my friends if there are any left." ---"Minnie Hill Bursker" HILL, Julia Julia Lewis Hill, d. 1892 Surnames: Foster, Hill, Irle, Lewis, Strong Source: the Adams County Press, Saturday February 6, 1892, Page 5 Died, in Friendship, January 30, 1892, Mrs. Julia Hill, aged 72 years, 6 months and 4 days. Mrs. Hill was born in Canada, July 26, 1819, and her maiden name was Lewis. About 1846, at Antrim Michigan, she was married to Mr. Henry Hill, father of the late John Hill of this place, and grandfather of A.T. Hill and J.B. Hill of Friendship, Mrs. Celia Irle and Katie Strong, of St. Paul Minnesota, and Clara Foster of Des Moines Iowa.The deceased was the second wife of Henry Hill, and had but one child, Warren Hill of Detroit, Minnesota. She came to Wisconsin with her husband in 1861, and ever since then her home has been near or with the family of her husband's son, John Hill. He died in May 1872, leaving to his son Albert the care of his aged father and his wife. A year later Henry Hill the father of John Hill and the grandfather of Albert and John B., died, and Mrs. Julia Hill, but for the affectionate regard of her step-son's children would have been left practically alone in the world. Albert Hill fitted up a pleasant home, and installed the old grandmother as its mistress, and there her declining years were made brighter and happier than fall to the lot of most women by one who, though not of kinship, has watched over her during her declining days, and has made the way smooth and pleasant to her feet, with all the tender solicitude and care of an affectionate son. Mrs. Hill died of the grippe. HILL, Mr. Mr. Hill, d. 1895 Surname: Hill Source: the Adams County Press, April 20, 1895, Page 4 Column 3, Rome news column Mr. Hill died April 14.

In his intercourse with his neighbors, without being demonstrative, he was kind, honest and helpful, and so won and held their confidence and esteem through life, as his death brings sadness and regret.

Mrs. Holmes, whose maiden name was Hannah Mary Peterson, was born in Lolland: in the Kingdom of Denmark, on the 23rd day of May, 1864, and it was there she lived and grew to young womanhood. At the age of 18 years she came to America, and to friends living in Big Flats. On the 7th of March, 1886, she married Rossiter P. Holmes, a highly respected citizen of that town. This union proved a pleasant one. Mrs. Holmes' inclinations and tastes were of a highly domestic character, and the home became her kingdom and the one great object of her care and solicitude. Mrs. Holmes was the mother of four children--the youngest of whom at the age of three-and-a-half months, died on September 7th, only ten days before the mother was called home to Heaven. Three children and the husband survive to mourn the irreparable loss. From infancy the deceased had been an exemplary member of the Danish Lutheran church, and she died in the faith, and with the blessed hope and trust of the pure in heart. The funeral was on Saturday, the 22nd, from the family residence, and was attended by a delegation and members of the Forum in Friendship, of which the deceased had been an esteemed member, and many people from the surrounding country. The procession is estimated to have been composed of at least one hundred carriages, and extended more than a full mile in length. With such an expression of the respect and esteem for the memory of the dead it is but repeating what all must realize as true, that the tenderest sympathies of the whole community go out to the little ones left motherless, to the husband bereft of a faithful wife; and to the aged mother who can but feel that the death that robbed her son of a wife also took from her a faithful daughter.

P. Thompson of Berthoud, to H. E. Herrick, of this city. The message was dated October 8, but did not reach here until the afternoon of the following day, having been delayed in transmission, probably because of the telegrapher's strike. The message stated that the remains would be shipped from Berthoud on Wednesday. About a year ago, Mr. Huber was taken down with an attack of bronchitis which developed into pneumonia from which he partially recovered. On February 5 he left for Colorado, accompanied by his brother, Albert Huber, to seek health in that climate, but his lungs had been affected beyond recovery and discouraging reports concerning his condition prompted Mrs. Huber to go out to see her suffering husband. Leaving the store in charge of Miss Mabel Burroughs and the home and children in the care of Mr. Huber's sister, Miss Emma Huber, Mrs. HUBER left July 10th and remained with her husband up to the time of his death. The late Peter Huber came to Nekoosa in the fall of 1893, soon after his marriage to Miss Mary Breene at Adams Center, following his trade as mason to a certain extent. In the spring of 1894 he put up a little building on the site of the present Huber Cash Store, his first stock of goods being confectionary. As he prospered he enlarged his building and added new lines to his stock. Deceased leaves a widow and four children-- Leo, Lizzie, Mark and Lawrence. He was a member of the Independent Order of Forrester's and the Equitable Fraternal Union, in which he carried life insurance policies of $1,000 each.

HUTCHINSON, Howard Howard Hutchinson, 1876 - 1937 Source: Adams Advertiser, August 20, 1937 Surnames: Hutchenson, Hutchinson, Kurth Howard HUTCHINSON, 61, a tenant on the farm of Mrs. Lenora KURTH in the town of Easton, died very suddenly Tuesday morning, August 17th 1937, in his home, the cause of death being a heart attack. Funeral services will be held at the home on the KURTH farm, this afternoon (Friday) with Roseberry brothers directing and Rev. W. J. DAVIES officiating. Burial will be in the cemetery at Plainville. Mr. HUTCHINSON has been subject to heart trouble for some time but was apparently in his usual state of health up to a very few moments before his death. He arose Tuesday morning and in company with his wife was at the barn doing the chores, the morning milking, etc., when he suddenly complained of a pain in his head. His wife aided him in reaching the house and after he was seated she telephoned for a doctor. Death, however, came before any medical aid could reach him. Mr. HUTCHINSON has lived on the Kurth farm about three years and prior to that time occupied other farms in other parts of this county. He was born in February, 1876, and therefore was 61 years of age at the time of his death. No particulars of his life history are available at this writing. His wife was the only member of his family, there being no children. His mother is said to be living in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, at the advanced age of 85 years, but there is no information as to brothers or sisters. (Hutchinson was spelled Hutchenson in the article's title but spelled Hutchinson 3 times in the obituary)
