HILGERT, JOSEPH Hilgert Found Dead At Cabin. Joseph Hilgert, 61, a bachelor, was found frozen to death about 3:30 o'clock Friday afternoon outside his cabin in the Town of Mead seven and one half miles southeast of Thorp by a neighbor, Joseph Lato.

Authorities said it was probable that when he found he didn't have his keys and was unable to gain entrance, he fell asleep and froze outside the cabin. Joseph Hilgert was born in School Hill, Manitowoc County, Wis., on Jan. 12, 1897. He enlisted in the U.S. Army in 1917 as a member of Co.D at Stanley, Wis.
