ALBRECHT, HILDA (b. 20 Feb 1898/d. 11 May 2002/at Newton, Manitowoc, WI/SSDI) Born on February 21, 1898 in Meeme, Hilda grew up on the family farm. When she married Edgar Albrecht in 1925, they ran the home farm. Like other farm wives, Hilda canned, made butter and smoked meat. She recalls, “the best bread I baked was in the outdoor oven. When the wood was burned, the oven was hot enough to bake bread.” Hilda thought the telephone was the nicest invention because it helped farm people overcome their isolation. Today, she enjoys exercise classes and playing bingo. Hilda believes the hard work she did on the farm has helped her to remain healthy and active.

ALLENDORF, "GRANDMA" PIONEER WOMAN OF COUNTY DIES AT TWO RIVERS Death claimed a pioneer resident of Two Rivers and Manitowoc county yesterday when at the "Allendorf" corner, Fifteenth and Adams street, "Grandma" Allendorf passed away at the age of 81 years. Death was due to infirmities of age and the announcement of her passing will bring keen sorrow to many who knew and loved her. Mrs. Allendorf was one of the pioneer residents of the county, settling here among the virgin pine and undergoing the hardships and incessant labor incident to the clearing and cultivation of a well kept farm which in later years was the family home north of Two Rivers. The deceased was born in Dorth, Saxony and came to this country in 1855. She is survived by two daughters, Mrs. A.J. Wetzel of Milwaukee and Mrs. Matthew Frey, of Ashland and one son, Warner, of Oshkosh. Funeral services will be held at St. John's Lutheran church tomorrow afternoon.

ALLIE, J. From Der Nord Westen, 20 May 1909: 21-year old J. Allie, nephew of Supervisor Allie of Two Rivers, a fisherman, on Tuesday fell into the lake from a motorboat near Kewaunee and drowned.
ALLIE, WALLACE TWO RIVERS BOY EIGHTH VICTIM OF DROWNING THIS YR WALLACE ALLIE, AGED 17, IS THIRD MEMBER OF FAMILY TO LOSE LIFE BY DROWNING WITHIN PAST TWO YEARS. TAKEN WITH CRAMPS--BODY RECOVERED BY LIFE SAVERS Two Rivers contributed the eighth fatality of the season from drowning last night when Wallace Allie, aged 17, last (sic) his life in the river at a point about three-quarters of a mile from the Life Saving station. Though the body was recovered by Life Saving crew within ten minutes of the accident and five minutes after reaching the scene, efforts to revive the unfortunate lad were without avail. Young Allie with a number of companions was bathing in the river when he was taken with cramps and before his companions could aid him, he had gone down. The Life Saving station was notified and responded with the power boat, reaching the scene in incredible short time and recovering the body in less than five minutes after its arrival. Despite this fact, however, nothing could be done to save the body, the crew, with physicians, working over the body for more than one hour before the effort was abandoned. A peculiarly sad circumstance in connection with the drowning of the Allie boy is that he is the third of his family to meet death in the water within the past few years. Four years ago his father, the late Eugene Allie, met his death in the lake at Kewaunee, being washed overboard from his boat, and only a year ago a brother of the dead boy, lost his life, almost at the same spot where his father was drowned. Allie, Sr., was engaged in fishing and after his death the older son followed the father's work, both meeting death while engaged in fishing off Kewaunee. The victim of last night's tragedy was an orphan, his mother having died some years ago and several brothers and sisters are survivors. The body was taken in charge by relatives at Two Rivers. No inquest was held, the circumstances attending the accident being clearly established. Coroner Falge and Dist. Atty. Healy were notified last night of the accident. The drowning of the Allie lad is the eighth which has occurred in Manitowoc and Two Rivers this year, both cities having had four victims of fatalities of this nature. Five of the accidents have occurred within six weeks, three in this city and two at Two Rivers. Manitowoc Daily Herald, Saturday, July 19, 1913 P. 1

ANDERSON, ALBERTINA DIED – on Sunday, March 16, Albertina Anderson, age 10 year About a year ago she contracted a cold which resulted in the dread disease, consumption. Her sufferings during that time have been intense until relieved by death. Her last works “Mama will Jesus come soon?” may serve as a comfort to the parents. She has passed into that peaceful sleep which knows no waking, gone to that home “where sorrow entereth not”.

ANDERSON, CARRIE Liberty Lines: Died: at her home on Tuesday, Dec. 4th. Mrs. Tosten Anderson. She was buried on Thursday and the long line of carriages that followed the remains to their last resting place proved the esteem in which the deceased was held by her many friends. Rev. A.O. Alfson delivered an appropriate and touching funeral sermon. Deceased was a devoted wife and loving parent, possessing the happy faculty of always looking at the bright side of things. When suffering from feebleness or pain, she would, for the sake of others, conceal it as much as possible. It is comforting to think she is now at rest; the day has dawned, the shadows have fled. We have not learned all the particulars of her illness and death, but are certain that the end was in harmony with her life. Death, to her, could have been no surprise. During those long months of lingering illness, her thoughts must have become familiar with the prospects of another world. A beautiful cross of natural flowers was placed on her coffin by her children, a tribute of their love and esteem and an emblem of that sweet rest into which we trust she has entered. Weep not, O friend, we should not weep Our friend of friends lies full of rest No sorrow rankles in her breast, Fallen fast asleep. She sleeps below, She wakes and laughs above; Today, as she walked, let us walk in love Tomorrow follow also.

He was bathing in the river, and two or three of his companions were in a canoe, which, in sport, he tried to overturn. One of the young men in the canoe, attempted to splash the water in his face with the paddle, but missing his aim, the blow fell on the face of Austin, who immediately sunk. A post mortem examination by Dr. Zeilly, proved that the facial artery was ruptured by the force of the blow, and a Coroners jury gave a verdict in accordance with the above facts.

As the steamer Detroit was making fast to the pier at Two Rivers, on Wednesday, a man named Jacob Avers attempted to jump ashore, and fell into the water. At first he seemed to be able to keep himself afloat, and no immediate apprehension of danger was felt for him. Planks were immediately thrown in the water, which he failed to reach and Mr. Goit, mate of the Detroit, lowered himself by a rope in order to rescue him, when suddenly the unfortunate man seemed to lose all power, and sank, when all efforts to save him were unavailing. He was very much intoxicated, which accounts for his sudden helplessness. We were on board the boat at the time, and when we left, the body had not been recovered.

BAHR, FRED REEDSVILLE MAN DEAD IN RIVER THERE Village Marshal Bahr Fell From Railway Bridge ACCIDENT SOME TIME DURING NIGHT Reedsville - Apr. 29 - Victim of an accident, Fred Bahr, village marshall, lost his life in the river some time during the night, the dead body being found by searchers early today. The absence of any marks of violence on the body and the fact that the body has not been robbed leads to the belief that Bahr's death was an accident. Mr. Bahr had held an apointment as village night watchman for some years and was on duty last night when he met his death, the body was found near the C & NW Railway bridge which Mr. Bahr would cross on his way home and it is believed that he was enroute home when, in the darkness, he missed his footing and fell from the bridge. With no one about to render him aid, Mr. Bahr was unable to save himself and drowned. Mrs. Bahr reported the absence of her husband during the morning and a searching party which was organized, discovered the body at 11 o'clock. Mr. Bahr was 66 years of age and one of the best known men of the village. He had been twice married and is survived by the second wife and one son and by several children of his former marriage. Coroner Falge and District Attorney Healy at Manitowoc were notified and will come here, though it is doubtful that an inquest will be called. Manitowoc Daily Herald, Fri., Apr. 29, 1910 page 2

BARTER, WM. LOST ON THE SEA BIRD Information Relative to the Citizens of Manitowoc who were Victims of the Late Disaster. Thirty-One Persons Lost. In fulfilling the painful duty which devolves upon us at this time we have endeavored to present to our readers a correct report containing all the information in regard to the lost which we could obtain. We fear there will be some errors, but we have as far as possible obtained the statements of relatives or immediate friends of the deceased. We would that some other hand than ours--one better skilled in soothing afflicted hearts-- might perform the sad office of saying comforting words to the distressed of our Village, but it may not be and we can only say to those who suffer, you have our heartfelt sympathy-- and the sympathy of every person in Manitowoc. We have known your friends, respected them, loved them; and your loss is our loss. Let us hope that He who doeth all things well hath not permitted our friends to fall in vain. WM. BARTER Came here some months ago. Was a painter by occupation. He was a single man and about 40 years of age. He was on his way to Chicago where he has generally spent his summers. (Article continues in the same manner for each individual lost on the SEA BIRD; Geo. W. Emery, James A. Hodges, Capt. N.T. Nelson, Capt. John Sorenson, Charles Riechen, Joseph Doucett, Henry Nieman, Henry Pfeffer, James Leykom, August Wilde, Richard Flossbach, Amos Meyer, John Melka, Martin Rozezguiatee, Casper Klimer, John Foucks, Herman Jacoby, Wenzel Hawlichek, P.C. Danahy, Raymond H. Hunt, Fred Henning Jr., and Thorine Oleson.) OTHERS. We hear of others who were on the boat beyond a doubt--one a Norwegian who has been chopping wood in this vicinity, could not learn his name; and two girls from the country who took passage from here with the intention of going either to Milwaukee or Chicago have not been heard from since the disaster. So it will be seen there were Thirty-one from here certainly, and two doubtful, lost on the SEA BIRD. The Manitowoc Tribune Thursday, April 16, 1868 pg. 4

BISCHOFF ADAM or ADOLPH From Der Nord Westen, 10 Feb. 1881: Death by suicide of Adam Bischoff on Sun. at Half Way House on the Two Rivers-Mishicott Road. He had recently arrived from Germany and brought with him a reasonable sum of money. Apparently under the influence of drink, he shot himself in the head. ******** SUICIDE On Sunday afternoon a man named Adolph Bishoff committed suicide at Wooster's Hotel at Two Rivers by blowing his brains out with a revolver. He was a young fellow about twenty-five years of age who came from Germany last spring. He was always well dressed and seemed to have considerable money. He led a fast life and it is believed had about exhausted all the funds he had. He had attended the funeral of Sam Stone in company with Mr. Wooster and committed the deed a few minutes after his return. There were some men in the saloon and he approached one of them and said he intended to burn down his barn that night. He then went up to Wooster and said “Something is going to happen tonight.” Directly after he went out and stood a few feet from a group of four men who were engaged in conversation. He drew a revolver from his pocket and discharged the contents into his head. On Monday an inquest was held by Justice Goedgen. The verdict given was in accordance with the above facts. Bishoff boarded for some time at Nolan's in this city, but spent the greater part of his time with his aunt in Mishicott, a Mrs. Andrew Smith. No cause is assigned for the commission of the rash act.

BOUTIN, SON OF FRANK Fire in Two Rivers - Two Children Burned to Death From Mr. John Wright, the Two Rivers mail carrier, we obtain these particulars of a most heartrending occurence: About five o'clock last Friday afternoon a fire broke out in a barn belonging to Mr. Gottfried Berger, in Two Rivers. The flames speedily communicated to an adjacent house, owned and occupied as a dwelling by Frank Boutin, and to another barn owned by Jos. Gagnon. The engine and hook and ladder companies soon arrived on the ground, but too late to save the property from destruction. Before the fire was extinguished, a painful rumor became current that two little children - one a son of Frank Boutin, aged four years, and the other, aged five years, a son of the widow Martell - were in the burning barn. The firemen and citizens redoubled their efforts to subdue the flames, and when they had suceeded, an investigation of the ruins confirmed their worst fears. The lifeless bodies of the unfortunate little fellows were found lying on some wet and partially burned straw, in one corner. Both bodies were horribly burned and disfigured, and only one, that of little Boutin, could be recognized. When the body of the other child was lifted up, one of its legs dropped off. It is supposed that the children went into the barn unobserved, and, shutting the door, built a fire on the floor. No outcry was heard, and they were probably suffocated by the smoke before the flames reached them. Mr. and Mrs. Boutin were absent at Green Bay visiting at the time, and Mrs. Martell supposed that her child was safe at home. Milwaukee Daily Sentinel, June 04, 1870, Issue 131, col. F.
