RUDOLPH HRABIK WIFE WITNESSES FATAL ACCIDENT TO HUSBAND IN LAKE RUDOLPH LOSES LIFE WHILE BATHING IN LAKE NEAR LONE PINE SUNDAY WHILE WIFE AND DAUGHTER ARE ON SHORE BODY CARRIED TWO MILES FOUND ON BEACH TODAY One of the saddest tragedies of the year was enacted Sunday afternoon at Lone Pine, a picnic resort on the lake bech on the interurban line to Two Rivers, when Rudy Hrabek(sic), a well known young business man of this city, met his death while bathing in the lake. Mr. Hrabek's death resulted from a blow on the head from a hatch cover which he was using as a raft, or from heart failure, investigation today, when the body was recovered revealing that death was not due to drowning. A wound on the temple, where the unfortunate man may have been struck by the heavy board may have caused death or heart failure may have been responsible. The accident happened at 3 o'clock yesterday afternoon and the body was not recovered until 6:30 this morning when it was found on the beach near Two Rivers, nearly two miles from the scene of the tragedy, having been carried that distance by the undercurrent which made it impossible to recover the remains after the accident. The body was found by Engineer Schultz of the Two Rivers plant of the Wisconsin Canning Co. who had it conveyed to an undertaking establishment there and later W.C. Urbanek, a brother-in-law of the dead man brought the remains here. Mrs. Hrabek, her sisters, Mrs. Otto Alter and Mrs. W.C. Urbanek, and Mr. Alter witnessed the tragedy from the shore where they were awaiting the return of Mr. Hrabek who is believed to have started to swim ashore upon a signal from the party. Arthur Baetz and family of Two Rivers were also at the beach and witnessed the accident. The Hrabek family, father, mother and son, accompanied by children of Mr. and Mrs. W.C. Urbanek had been at the beach since noon but Mr. and Mrs. Alter and Mrs. Urbanek arrived but five minutes before the tragedy. As the party, which was met at the car by Mrs. Hrabek, proceeded to the beach Mr. Hrabek was seen in the water, his hands high in the air and apparently sinking and suddenly the body disappeared from view. Mr. Alter and Mr. Baetz, with others who were on the car rushed to the water and a human chain was formed in an effort to reach Mr. Hrabek but the undertow was so strong that it was impossible to proceed but a short distance. The unfortunate man is said to have been 300 feet or more from the shore when he went down. A telephone call was dispatched to Two Rives for the Life Saving Crew and the crew with Capt. George Sogge assisted in search for the body. A large net was used in dragging the lake but the rough sea snd the undertow made it impossible to reach bottom and volunteer divers who tried to aid were forced to return to shore. The search was continued until midnight and Frank Hrabek, a brother of the dead man, and Frank Wattawa, Grover Meyer and A.W. Tompkins patrolled the beach all night to recover the body in event that it was thrown up by the waters, but no trace of the remains were found until 6:30 this morning when Mr. Schultz at Two Rivers, discovered the body on the beach near the plant of the canning company, a mile and one-half from the spot where the accident happened. Word was sent to this city and the body was brought here by a special car of the Traction line. News of the accident cast a pall over the city and dozens of people visited the beach and volunteered their services in an effort to recover the body. Thomas Higgins, president of the Traction Co. and Supt. Phair, of the company, who reached the scene early joined the searchers and cars were held at the Pine to convey the body to the city should it be found. Dead Man Well Known- Rudy Hrabek was one of the best known young business men of the city and was associated in the Manitowoc Electrical Works founded a few months ago. He was born at Kewaunee Sept. 17, 1886, being 28 years of age at the time of his untimely death. At the age of 10 he came here with his parents and had since made his home in the city. Mr. Hrabek was married three years ago to Miss Lydia Pruss, who with one daughter, survive. His parents, residents of Huron street, this city, three brothers, Frank, Michael George and two sisters, Mrs. John Kott(?) and Miss Bessie Hrabek, also survive. News of the death of Mr. Hrabek was a terrible shock to the commun- ity and to a host of friends. He was popular with all who knew him and was a young man possessed of capabilities that promised him success in life. Funeral on Wednesday- Funeral services for Mr. Hrabek will be held Wednesday afternoon and will be under the auspices of the Royal League of which decedent was a member. The funeral will be from the late home. Manitowoc Daily Herald, Monday, August 10, 1914 p.1 ******** [Rudy/bur. 08-12-1914/age: 28 yrs./cause: accidental drowning/burial on Herman PREUSS lot]

ANN HUBBARD MRS. HUBBARD, PIONEER CITY TEACHER DIES Succumbs at Los Angeles at Age of 99; Taught Here During Civil War Days Mrs. Harvey Hubbard, 99, who was a teacher in the first high school here in Civil War days, died early today at her home in Los Angeles, Calif. She moved to the west to live with her daughters and son 14 years ago. Keen Interest In City Mrs. Hubbard, nee Anna Warbasse, was closely connected with the intellectual, religious and civic development of Manitowoc in the early village days. She was a member of one of the pioneer families during her residence here following her marriage to Mr. Hubbard, who also was active in church and social work. Despite her age Mrs. Hubbard retained her faculties to the end. She had a keen interest in Manitowoc affairs and has retained church and society memberships here ever since she located in California. Chapel funeral services will be held in Los Angeles Thursday at 3 p.m. The body will be brought to Manitowoc in May for burial in the Hubbard lot in Evergreen cemetery. Born in New Jersey in 1839 Mrs. Hubbard was educated in private schools of that state and came to Wisconsin 1861 to visit her sister, Mary, Mrs. C.W. Fitch. Mr. Fitch was editor of a weekly paper here. She was offered the position of teacher under O.R. Bacon in the high school on the north side. She taught geometry, algebra, and arithmetic, including mental arithmetic, and was very proud of the latter class. She began immediately to take part in social and church activiites of the community. When she returned from the east after a visit home she taught in Racine. While there she received an offer of the principalship of the Manitowoc school, on the retirement of Mr. Bacon. She was in charge of the school at the time of the assassination of President Lincoln and told the story of how the entire student body marched in a parade in honor of the martyred president on the day of his funeral. Many Manitowoc young men who left high school to join the Union army were her students after they returned from the war. Although they were 20 or 21 years of age they completed the high school courses. After resigning as school principal she returned east to be married. She returned here as the bride of Harvey Hubbard, member of one of the first families of Manitowoc. Mr. Hubbard came here when he was an infant with his father, Oliver Hubbard, one of the first band of Manitowoc settlers with Benjamin Jones over 100 years ago. The Hubbard family was one of three families who remained when the panic of 1837 sent the rest of the 40 settlers rushing back to Chicago. Lived on Farm For many years Mr. and Mrs. Hubbard lived on the Hubbard farm west of Manitowoc Rapids. When they moved to this city they built a home on North Ninth street, now occupied by the Wallace family.

Mrs. Hubbard was prominent in Presbyterian church circles. She joined the church here by letter from Newton, N.Y., in 1866.

HARVEY F. HUBBARD BUT ONE IS LEFT. H.F. Hubbard Located in the City Sixty-Two Years Ago. Sixty-two years ago yesterday, on the afternoon of April 16, 1838, the first white colonists landed at what is now Manitowoc. Men, women and children included, numbered thirty-two and the small body of people worked and endured hardships to build the nucleus of a city. How well they succeeded is evidenced by our present thriving, beautiful city of to-day. Of these thirty-two persons but one is living to-day, that one is H.F. Hubbard who was only seven years of age when his parents came to this place to help build a city. These early colonists were not the first settlers. In the fall of 1836 a family named Edwards came from Chicago and settled at the Rapids. One member of this family, Joseph Edwards, a man well-known to most people in Manitowoc, still lives. He was only five years of age at that time, but his recollections of the early days are still vivid. The site of Manitowoc was owned by a Chicago company. In 1836 they sent three men here to break ground. They built a small house and returned to Chicago before winter. The next Spring the company hired more men who took their families, all necessary supplies and started in a sailing vessel for their new home, where they were expected to start a city. The house which had been built the year before stood on what is now the North-east corner of Eight and Commercial streets. The first house to be built by the new corner was located on the hill were the Hall Bros. warehouse stood later. This house has been rebuilt and is still standing in another part of the city In July of the next year others others came to Manitowoc among them Perry P. Smith. Mr. Smith lives to-day at the corner of Chicago and Sixth streets. Although well advanced in years he is still able to look after his affairs and comes down town every pleasant day. He has watched the growth of the town year by year from a small hamlet to a city of nearly twelve thousand inhabitants. It is a pleasure to him to go back over the early days and his stories of pioneer life are very interesting. These three men, Joseph Edwards, H.F. Hubbard and Perry P. Smith are the only three men of the early pioneers still living. Mr. Hubbard being the only one of the original thirty-two colonists left. To him the sixteenth of April is a day to be commemorated. Indeed it is a day that deserves to be observed in some fitting manner by all the citizens of Manitowoc. Manitowoc Daily Herald, Apr. 17, 1899 P.2 ********* H.F. HUBBARD, RESIDENT OF CO. FOR 78 YEARS, AND OLDEST PIONEER SETTLER, DIES TODAY CAME TO CITY AS BOY OF 7 IN 1837 AND FOUNDED CHURCH AND SCHOOL FURNITURE MANUFACTURER BUSINESS, NOW IMPORTANT INDUSTRY OF CITY—WAS FIRST STUDENT AT UNIVERSITY PROMINENT AS ODD FELLOW AND WAS FOR 40 YEARS CHURCH ELDER “When the day is done, when the work of life is finished, when the gold of evening meets the dark of night, beneath the silent stars the laborer should fall asleep.” This favorite quotation of Harvey F. Hubbard, the oldest living pioneer settler of Manitowoc county, was truly exemplified in his death which occurred early this morning at the family home, North Ninth street, when worn and wearied by a pilgrimage of 85 years, he quietly fell into eternal sleep, the end, calm and peaceful being a beautiful climax to a life that had been marked by unusual activity. Resident Here 78 Years. For seventy eight years, Mr. Hubbard had been identified with the life and development of Manitowoc county and his passing takes the last of the first settlers of the county, a little band which located here in 1836-37 and founded what is now the city. While Mr. Hubbard was not with the first party which settled here in 1836, with his father he came here a year later and since that time practically his entire life had been passed in Manitowoc and his efforts given to the upbuilding of a city from a wilderness. Native of New York. Mr. Hubbard was born in Cattaraugus County, New York, July 14, 1830 and was but seven years of age when his father came west, locating here to take up land. The boy was sent to Illinois where he could attend school and later was one of the first students enrolled at the University of Wisconsin when that institution was founded, being a student there the first two years the University was opened. The death of his father prevented Mr. Hubbard from graduating from the University, and he returned here to take charge of the business which was the manufacture of lumber and late. Mr. Hubbard, Sr., having operated what was known as Hubbard’s mill at Rapids. In 1866 Mr. Hubbard was married to Anna Halsted Warbasse and the family took up their home in this city, though the business of which he was the head was trans- ferred to Reedsville because of better facilities for securing oak lumber used in the factory. Founded Church Furniture Business. Later the plant was established in this city and enlarged under the name of the Manitowoc Manufacturing co. and it was the beginning of the church and school manufacturing industry which in later years came to be an important industry of the city. In 1891 the factory plant of the company was destroyed by fire and Mr. Hubbard engaged in the insurance and real estate business which he continued to be actively engaged in up to three years ago when advanced age forced his retirement, though up to a few weeks of his death he made daily visits down town. Forty Years an Elder. Mr. Hubbard was a consistent member of the Presbyterian church and for forty years had held the title of ruling elder of the church in this city, a distinction that is unequalled in church history of the city. He lived up to the beliefs that his affiliation and his gentle, kindly nature was manifested in his helpfulness to others and his charity. “Write me as one who loves his fellow man” was one of Mr. Hubbard’s favorite quotations and he lived up to it in his daily life. Pioneer Odd Fellow. A charter member of Chickerming lodge, Independent Order of Odd Fellows when the lodge was organized in 1855, Mr. Hubbard had been prominent in the order in the city and state. He served as Grand Master of the state supreme lodge and was also named grand representative from Wisconsin to the grand lodge of the United States. To Mr. Hubbard as much as any other men was due the founding of the Odd Fellows Home at Green Bay, this state, he having been largely instrumental in establishment of the institution. He was active in other charitable work of the order and was one of the men whose interest and enthusiasm had held intact the organization of Chickerming lodge. Founded Co. Society. Mr. Hubbard was a great lover of Nature, of trees, flowers, birds and insects and was an enthusiastic horticulturist and it was through his efforts that the Manitowoc County Horticulture society was organized some years ago and he was elected as the first president of the society. Even in late years Mr. Hubbard had manifested great interest in the society, being a regular attendant at its meetings and one of its exhibitors as long as he was able to give attention to the organization. Knew Co. History. Possessed of a retentive memory and a great reader, Mr. Hubbard was one of the best posted men of the city on current affairs, interest in which he maintained up to the time of his death. He was an encyclopedia of knowledge on county history and was called upon many times by persons seeking facts and dates pertaining to the early days of the county. Mr. Hubbard assisted materially in the compilation of recent published histories of Manitowoc county. Took Interest in Public Affairs. During his long residence here, Mr. Hubbard had always manifested a keen interest in public affairs, though he had never sought public office. He was a staunch supporter of the public schools and few educational meetings that were not attended by him. Surviving Family. Mr. Hubbard is survived by a widow and two sons, E.D. Hubbard, of Chicago and Dr. H. Walton Hubbard of Spokane, Wash., and two daughters, Misses Alice E. and Edith M. Hubbard, both of this city. Both of Mr. Hubbard’s sons will be here for the funeral. Funeral services for the late Mr. Hubbard will be held Saturday afternoon from the home at 2 o’clock. Manitowoc Daily Herald, Thursday, February 04, 1915, Page 1 ********* [cause: old age]

MARY HUBBARD (d. 1902) DEATH’S SUMMONS IS SERVED Mrs. Amanda Hubbard Ends Long and Useful Life of 77 Years Death’s solemn summons has again been served and one more Manitowoc resident has taken passage on that sea which never shadows a returning sail, Mrs. Amanda Hubbard, widow of the late Giles Hubbard, having passed away at an early hour today at the home of Rollin Hubbard on North Water Street.

Decedent was a native of New York state, 77 years of age and was with the first families who came here and was married in the village fifty years ago last February. Her husband died twelve years ago, since which time she has made her home with her son, who with one daughter, Mrs. Fred Eastwind, of Escanaba, Mich., survives her. Mrs. Hubbard was a goodly woman and in the several relations of life—as wife, mother, neighbor and friend, she was exemplary and proved herself worthy of the confidence constantly reposed. Her chief delight was in the love of her children and her nature was helpful. Lavish affection was bestowed upon those near and dear to her and it brought a generous return of enjoyment and gave to her in the declining days of life a happiness that even death could not shadow. Many friends will sincerely mourn the demise of Mrs. Hubbard.

OLIVER HUBBARD From the Manitowoc Herald, 15 Dec 1855: Oliver C. Hubbard died. ******* At Manitowoc Rapids, on the 10th inst., Mr. O.C. Hubbard, aged 56 years. Mr. Hubbard was one of the earliest settlers of Manitowoc County, and has during his residence here, witnessed changes of no common kind. As one of the pioneers of this country, he has seen the abode of the wolf, panther, and wild savage, transformed into the home of enlightened civilization, and he had the proud satisfaction of knowing that the labor of his hands, and the influence of his counsels contributed to swell the prosperity which everywhere surrounded him. Those who knew him, will recall with grateful recollections, many evidences of the true and warm-hearted kindness which was his distinguished characteristic. A kind husband, a loving and indulgent parent, a good citizen and a sincere Christian, whose virtues shone through the practice of his every day life, he will be missed, not only in the home circle, but by all who have ever felt the warm grasp of the hand which was ever the true index of his noble heart. The funeral on Wednesday morning, was attended by a large concourse of citizens, and an able address from an appropriate text was deliverd by Rev. M. Hoyt, rector of St. James Church.

RONALD S. HUBBARTT Head Injuries Kill Manitowoc Cyclist MANITOWOC….Dead are: …Ronald S. Hubbartt, 29, of Rt. 4, Manitowoc, Hubbartt was killed instantly at 5:25 p.m. Sunday when his 1963 motorcycle went out of control as he came south across the 21st Street bridge, failed to make the turn and struck the metal guard rail. Coroner Dr. Theodore Teitgen said that severe head and neck injuries caused death instantaneously as the cyclist’s hurtling body went head first into a 4 by 4 inch guard rail. The sharp top corner of the post pierced the head between the eyes. Second in City… According to witnesses, Hubartt was riding with three other cyclists…., each on separate cycles. They had come down the viaduct and headed across the bridge. Just as Hubbart’s cycle came onto the south apron of the bridge, the other riders said they noticed the front wheel began to shimmy. The cycle failed to make the turn and the front wheel struck the curbing at an angle, flipping the cycle into the air and overturning it. A rubber handlegrip was dug into the lawn and there were wheel marks along the upper edge of the metal guard rail. The front wheel flew off and landed across the street and the rest of the cycle spun “like a flipped coin through the air,” according to a witness. It landed in an upright position on the railroad tracks in front of Wisconsin Malting Co. elevators 130 feet from where the body was found. Police measurements showed the cycle skidded an additional 62 feet before the rider was thrown. Killed Instantly…. Hubbart was prominent in the news in 1953 when, just after he returned from Korea, he saved his father’s life by quick thinking after his father’s leg was nearly severed when a loaded shotgun fell from a tractor and the charge struck the father in the leg. Hubbartt quickly removed his belt and applied it as a tourniquet, saving both his father’s life, and ultimately, the leg. Korean Veteran Hubbartt was born Aug. 2, 1934, at Willmer, Minn., son of Ralph S. Hubbartt and Delores Foley Peterson. He came to Manitowoc 19 years ago where Sept. 1, 1956, he married Ruth Bellin.
