CHUDZINSKI, KATHERINE WOMAN, BELIEVED TO BE OLDEST IN STATE, DIES HERE, AGED 109 MRS. KATHERINE CHUDZINSKI, INMATE OF ST. MARY'S, WORKED IN GARDEN AT HOME UP TO YEAR AGO Believed to have been the oldest resident of Wisconsin, and with a record for longevity that has been surpassed by few people in the United States, Mrs. Katherine Chudzinski died at St. Mary's hospital Sunday, aged 109 years. Mrs. Chudzinski's death was due to a general breaking down, which had been going on for a time and peaceful, her life passing quietly and without struggle. Mrs. Chudzinski's great age was well authenticated by records at the hospital and by incidents which she recalled having witnessed as a child. Up to a year ago the aged woman was in good health and insisted upon working in the garden at the hospital daily. She began to decline a year ago and for several months ???? had been confined to her room, unable to care for herself. Previous to that time she conversed freely with visitors and recounted many incidents of her youth which established her age. She was in possession of all her faculties. She had a remarkably retentive memory and recalled events of three-quarters of a century ago. Little is known of Mrs. Chudzinski's past, aside from the records showing her birth in Poland and emigration to America. She came to St. Mary's eighteen years ago, then 91 years old, and had since been cared for there. It is not known that she had any relatives being but inquiry will be made. A few years ago when Henry Mulholland was engaged in taking the census in the city Mrs. Chudzinski gave her age, residence and other facts of life, desired for the census, without difficulty. At the time Mrs. Chudzinski received extended mention in newspapers of the state as the oldest woman in Wisconsin. Manitowoc Daily Herald, Monday, March 23, 1914 P.1

CIHAK, VACLAV a.k.a. Paul Novak BELIEVE MAN DELIBERATELY CHOSE DEATH UNDER TRAIN Aged Man Is Run Down At Junction at Noon Did Paul Novak, aged wayfarer, killed by a North Western train at Two Rivers Junction shortly before noon today, deliberately choose death? Trainmen believe that he did and in support of their belief cite the testimony of Engineer John Watson who says that Novak, walking on the tracks, heard the signal of the approaching train, turned around about, and then continued walking the tracks, making no attempt to get out of danger. Novak, who appears a man of 65 years of age, was killed by the North Western train which arrives here from Green Bay at 11:30 as he was walking the tracks near the Junction. The man's death is believed to have been instantaneous and the body was brought to the station here by the train crew. Sister identifies man. Identity of the dead man was established by letters found on the person. These were written by a sister, Mrs. Peters of 815 Collingwood avenue, Baltimore, Md. In one of the letters the writer urged Novak to come to Baltimore, assuring him of a home for the balance of his days and it is possible he had started on the long trip East when he met death here. One of the letters was written in Bohemian and one in Polish. The train was in charge of Conductor Morris, of Green Bay and John Watson of this city was the engineer. According to a statement by Mr. Watson, Novak turned and looked at the train when signaled to get off the track and the deliberately continued on his way with no efforts to leave the tracks. District Atty. Brady and Coroner Kemper were summoned and secured the facts of the accident. Members of the train crew were to be questioned later this afternoon. It is not probable that an inquest will be held. Novak had no money but carried a small sack of coffee, a bar of soap and other supplies which indicated that he was tramping it. A message has been dispatched to the address given in the letters on the body. Manitowoc Herald News, September 23, 1921 P. 1 ********* IDENTITY OF TRAIN VICTIM IS ESTABLISHED Identity of the man killed by a Northwestern train at Two Rivers Junction yesterday, believed to have been Paul Novak, has been established by messages from Mrs. Peters of Westminster, Md., a sister, notified by the police of the tragedy. In a telegram asking particulars of the accident, Mrs. Peters says the dead man's right name is Vaclav Cihak, but gives no further information. Mrs. Peters, whose name was found in letters on the person of the dead man, had been asked what disposition should be made of the body, but she gave no instructions in her message. The body will be held a few days pending further word after she has been advised of details of the accident. Manitowoc Herald News, September 24, 1921 P. 9 ******* TRAIN VICTIM BURIED HERE POTTER FIELD Chief of Police Anton Trochlell is in receipt of a telegram from Mrs. Mary Peters, Westminster, Md., stating that she has not funds with which to meet the expense of the shipment of the body of Valca (sic) Cihak, killed by a Northwestern train here Friday, and asking that burial be made here at the expense of the county. Mrs. Peter (sic) says that she may claim the body later if conditions permit. The burial was made today with interment at Potter's field.

CLARK, LYDIA DIED: At Clarks Mills, on Thursday the 15th inst., Mrs. Lydia Clark, aged 74 years. Mrs. Lydia Clark (or as she was more generally known among her friends and neighbors) Grandma Clark, whose death is recorded in this week's Tribune, was born in the State of New York, where she passed the most of a long and useful life. She was married early in life and reared a large family, consisting of five sons and five daughters, of all, only four sons are now living. She was a devoted wife and mother, and none but those afflicted in like manner can realize the depth of her anguish as she beheld that insidious disease, consumption, claiming one after another of her daughters, all grown to womanhood and all but one married, till all had fallen victims to its fatal power. About thirteen years ago she came west to the Village of Clarks Mills, with her husband and youngest daughter, Mrs. Eddy, then in the last stage of consumption, hoping the change of climate might avert the threatened doom, but it availed nothing, and she was soon resting in the silent grave. Hardly was the first agony or this bereavement over, for the companion with whom she had lived happily so many years, was stricken by disease and in a few days he too had gone to that bourne whence none return. It then seemed as though her cup of grief was full. It was not long after this, that the writer of this sketch became acquainted with her and though one might well have expected to find a gloomy sorrowing woman, yet after the first agony was over she became cheerful, recognizing in her afflictions the hand of her Divine Master, who doeth all things well. Eminently social in disposition she took an active part in all the social gatherings of the village, and for her was reserved the seat of honor. Public spirited, and patriotic, she could not bear that our National Birthday should ever pass unmarked by some public token of respect, and her purse was ever open to assist in any good work. About seven years ago she united with the Episcopal church of Manitowoc, then under the Pastoral charge of the Rev. G. B. Engle, of which she remained a member while she lived. Her last sickness was long and severe, but, Her life it is ended, her sorrows all o'er Earth's trials and troubles can reach her no more An angel of light in the home of the blest, In the arms of her Saviour forever at rest.

CLEMENS, JOHN From Der Nord Westen, 05 Nov. 1908: A fatal accident occurred Saturday afternoon at the Wisconsin Central Railroad coal dock. The new machinery being installed there had a defect requiring repair by a crew of experts, one of whom was John Clemens, a former blacksmith living on 24th Street. The cable stopped again Saturday afternoon and Clemens set out to repair it. He climbed onto the bridge about 60 feet above the ground to make the repairs and reaching for a crowbar fell the entire distance to the ground on his head. His fellow workers immediately sought to help him but obviously he was already dead. Dr. Pritchard was immediately called and could only establish that Clemens had broken his neck and had died in the blink of an eye. The unfortunate man was 28 years old and the son of Peter Clemens who still lives in Town Kossuth. The deceased had lived in Manitowoc for many years. He is also survived by a widow and 3 children of whom the youngest is just 2 months old. The body was taken to the Kappes Funeral Home and from there to the deceased's residence. The funeral was held Tuesday morning from St. Boniface Church. This is the first serious accident to have occurred at the new coal dock.

CONYE, JOHN MYSTERY IN MAN'S SUDDEN DISAPPEARANCE John Coyne, Soo Line Switchman, May Have Met His Death WAS LAST SEEN LATE SATURDAY NIGHT Missing since Saturday night, mystery surrounds the sudden disappearance of John Coyne, a well known South Side man who is employed as a switchman in the local yards of the Soo line, and the police department is working on the case in an effort to locate Coyne, or learn his fate, but up to the present the search has been futile. Several theories have been advanced [to] explain Coyne's mysterious disappearance but none have been satisfactory or developed a clew that might clear up the case. Relatives fear that Coyne may have met his death in the river by walking off the dock, and the police are maintaining a close watch on the river and have made some search in this direction. If Coyne is dead it is believed probable that his body will be found in the river as in any other event, the body would probably have been discovered before this time. Coyne was last seen late Saturday night when he said he was on his way to his home on Washington street but he faled(sic) to reach there. The continued absence of Mr. Coyne Sunday alarmed the family and the matter was reported to the police and inquiries were made in an effort to trace him but the man seemed to have disappeared as effectually as though the earth had opened up and swallowed him. All week the department has been working on the case but without results. Mr. Coyne was well known about the city and had been an employe of the Soo line and the Wisconsin Central under the old management for a number of years. He was a reliable and conscientious man in his work and was steady and if he has not met with an accident, his conduct is in married and with his wife resided on explainable, it is said Coyne is Washington street. (This line was garbled) One thing that strengthens the belief that Coyne has met with an accident is that the man gave no notice to the Soo officials here of an intention to take a lay-off or quit work as would have been the case had he intended to leave the city for a short stay. If as is feared by some of his friends Coyne lost his life in the river, there is little possibility that the body will be recovered until sparing owing to the ice. Coyne is a man between 40 and 50 years of age and has resided in the city for years.

CORNY, MRS. ED. Death in Town Cato Mon. of 65-old Mrs. ED. CORNY of a stroke. Der Nord Westen, 12 Oct. 1899
CORTES, HENRY From Monday's Daily DROWNED. - We have received two accounts of a sad catastrophe which occurred near Nachtway's mill, on the Neshoto river, in this county, last Thursday, resulting in the death of Mr. Henry Cortes, a German who, with his wife and one child resided in that neighborhood. One informant says that the deceased was engaged in hauling lumber from the mill with a yoke of oxen, and that while returning for a load, and while near the bank of the river (which at that point was about six feet high and very steep) the oxen, who were evidently very thirsty wanted to turn from the road and get water, and that while the driver was walking near the hind wheel, (next the river) the hub struck him and threw him over the bank into the river. He never rose after going into the water. Another informant says the oxen did go into the river, when the wagon, which had no box on, came apart and the unfortunate man went down never to rise until fished up by those who saw the accident.

CUMMINGS, MICHAEL From Der Nord Westen, 19 Apr. 1894: There were 2 deaths in the local mental facility during the past several days: Bettern Robert, and Michael Cummings, one from Town Franklin, the other from Cato.
CUMMINGS, MRS. ROBERT (possibly Honora Carey Cummings) MAPLE GROVE Mrs. Robert Cummings, Sr., who was one of the early pioneers of the town of Franklin, died at her home Jan. 31. Deceased was an aged and highly respected resident, and was about eighty five years old. She was born in the County Kerrie, Ireland, in 1830, being one of a large family. She came with her parents to the New World, at the age of 19, settling in the eastern states at first. After her marriage to Robert Cummings, and when duty called here to follow him, she came with other relatives to find a new home in the forests of Franklin. Since then she lived here until her death. Many were the tales of pioneer hardships which she took a delight in telling and it is from this sturdy stock that we, the younger gener- ation, are able to glean a few facts of the early struggles which our people had to contend with. She had a genial and kindly disposition, ever ready to lend a helping hand to those in need. Many kind acts and generous donations which "never saw the light" are attributed to this kind hearted and unselfish woman, whose neighbors all remember her generous nature and the happiness she found in doing good. She was the mother of ten children of which six live to survive her: Mrs. Curry of Buffalo, N.Y.; Hannah of Washington, D.C.; Mrs. McDonald of Superior, Wis., who was the first white child born in the town of Franklin; Sister Fatina of Pullman, Ill., John and Julia of the old home. She was a woman of more than the ordinary ability, a kind and loving mother, a devoted wife, a good neighbor and a devout Christian. She came from that Irish stock who in the early days settled in the wilderness and made homes for their children amid the danger and hardships of pioneer life. It is but a matter of a few more years, and few indeed, of her type will be left. Manitowoc Daily Herald, Tuesday, February 09, 1915, Page 4
CUNNINGHAM, RHODA From the Manitowoc Herald, 05 Apr. 1856: Rhoda Cunningham died at Clarks Mills, wife of Thomas Cunningham. ********* On Tuesday, the 1st inst., Mrs. Rhoda wife of Thomas Cunningham, aged 2? years. Mrs. Cunningham was highly esteemed and respected by all who knew her. Her amiable disposition and many lovely traits of character endeared her to a numerous circle of friends and acquaintances, some of whom can remember her when years ago with hopes ardent and glowing, she came to Manitowoc to gladden and beautify a home in the west and they will cherish the recollections which will associate themselves with the loving smile which ever beamed in the eye whose lustre is disarmed and whose light has gone out in the chamber of death. We forebear to draw aside the veil which hides the grief of the stricken mourners, but we may tender our sympathy, sincere and heart felt to those whose hearts have been saddened by this melancholy ????? mood.
