DAVIS, JEAN D Actually, it is D. Jean Davis - the 'D' stands for Doris, but she hated the name Doris, so she used the name Jean. Her maiden name was Morrison, she was born in Missouri. The social security number was issued in Oregon, because that is where she lived with her first husband - his name escapes me. She has a daughter who lives near Valders, and a son who lives in Milwaukee. Jean died of cancer; and per her request, there was no obituary in the newspaper, and only one broadcast on WCUB radio - no other station. She did not have a formal funeral - she was cremated, and her ashes were spread over Lake Michigan, off Maritime Drive. The ceremony was invitation only, and she wanted absolutely no tears. OK for me, not so easy for my kids. I just happen to know all this because I was her "gopher" and friend for about 8 years - starting when she was living in Francis Creek, and broke her knee; through her moves to/in Manitowoc, because she was never satisfied. One of the people she lived with was Howard Hoppe - she had moved out of there shortly before he fell asleep in his chair with a cigarette, burned his house down, and died in the fire! After I saw her through her physical therapy, I did her checkbook, her taxes, ran errands, accompanied her places. Extremely interesting woman. 30 September 1927-19 July 1999 soc. sec. issued OR (sent in by a friend)

DILLON: Catharine Died - In this city, on January 7th, wife of John Dillon, born in Kil?dane, County of Clare, Ireland. Aged 60 years. May she rest in peace Amen. The deceased was one of our oldest residents and universally esteemed and respected for her goodness of heart, which has been noted in many quiet acts of charity to the more unfortunate in distress. While she was able to walk about among her neighbors her pleasant and sympathetic nature made her ever a welcome visitor and participator in their joys or sorrows. She leaves a husband and son to mourn her loss. Her son, Patsey Dillon, deserves more than a passing notice. Each summer for several years he has sought employment in Chicago, while each succeeding winter has found him at his mothers bedside faithfully ministering to her every want. His efforts in this direction will prove double beneficial to him in after years, as his own conciousness of having smoothed her pillow in her declining years will always strengthen and ennoble his manhood, while the fact as known in this community will serve as a certificate of character wherever it is known. Manitowoc Pilot, January 14, 1875

DILLON: Tim From Wisconsin Histories - microfilm #18, Patron's Directory 1893, Two Rivers Library: Ditcher. Patronage solicited. Post Office, Osman; Section 26, Liberty Township. ********** Tim Dillon of Liberty was perhaps fatally injured yesterday morning. He was on his way home from Osman and stepped into the barn of Frank O'Niel where he stumbled against a horse which kicked him in the head inflicting injuries which may prove fatal. Manitowoc Pilot, Vol. XXXV No. 24, March 15, 1894, Page 3 Column 3 (sent in by Lisa) ********* On the morning of March 14 Tim Dillon was found in the barn of Frank Kelley of Liberty unconscious, from the kicks of a horse against which he stumbled while in an intoxicated state, as it was supposed. Dr. O'Brien and Schmitz of St. Nazians (sic) were called, and the wounds were dressed. Dillon was brought to the city hospital and died the following day but with no period of consciousness intervening. These facts were published before in The Pilot, but are reproduced as the case is now being investigated by the district attorney and a post mortem examination is in progress before Justice of the Peace P.J. McMahan. Dillon had seven wounds in his head and those on the back of the head were of such a character as to lead to the suspicion that they could not have been inflicted by the cork's of a horse shoe. The cuts were not ragged but appeared to have been made by a sharp instument (sic). Dr.Luhman found that the skull was not broken but that a clot of blood pressed upon the top of the brain. Dillon was buried in the cemetery at Meeme but this did not quiet the rumor that he met his death by other means than the kicks of a horse. The district attorney in company with Constable Pierce and Marshal Bolen visited the section last week and after gathering all the information possibe, decided to have the body exhumed and a post mortem examination held. On Tuesday, District Attorney Chloupek, Constable Pierce and Doctors Luhman and Frazer went out to Meeme to have the body exhumed and examined. The inquest opened on Wednesday before Justice McMahon. Dillon was a bachelor, and though born in Liberty has no relatives living there now as the family was broken up and moved to Texas. He lived alone in a shanty which he built and cultivated a small area which he rented and made his living mainly by doing jobs for the farmers. The evening before he received the injuries which proved fatal to him, he went to the village of Osman with Patrick O'Neil who had lately returned from the lumber woods. They remained there quite late and he O'Neil and Ed Burns left for home in company. Burns left them at the town line road and went home. It seems a quarrel of some kind took place here, as people were awakened by the noise. This was about 2 o'clock in the morning. Apparently the altercation did not lead to blows as the two men were known to leave. The barn in which Dillon was found is about half a mile from the town line. The district attorney does not choose to say yet what theory the state has formed with regard to the case. It will be made known in good time. The doctors returned from the autopsy yesterday. They say the cuts in the head must have been made by some sharp insturment.

DOUCETT, JOSEPH 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. JOSEPH DOUCETT Came to this place about fifteen years ago from Calais, Me., we believe. He was of Scotch descent and was born in New Brunswick. He has generally been engaged in the lumbering business, though we believe he has lived on a farm a part of his time. He was a member of the 14th Regiment and one of the bravest of the brave. At the battle of Corinth he was one of the color guard which consisted of eight men. The rebels charged but the 14th would not break; five of the color guard were killed but still the fight went on around the colors. A rebel reached out to take them and Doucett killed him with his bayonet, at the same time he received a bayonet wound through the abdomen and was pitched into a brush heap from which he was afterwards taken by the rebels. He was reported dead; his wife dressed in mourning, and all thought he was gone, but he came home and when the Regiment re-enlisted he went along. At the close of the war, being disabled by his wound he started a grocery but did not do very well and sold out. For a year or two he has lived in the country and done very well. Mr. D. was strictly and honest man, generous and kind. He had hosts of friends who with his wife and two children mourn his loss.

DRUMM, MRS. WILLIAM (Barbara on census) MAPLE GROVE MAN FINDS BODY OF WIFE HANGING IN GRANARY WM. DRUMM RETURNS FROM CHEESE FACTORY TO FIND WOMAN MISSING, SEARCH REVEALS DEAD BODY MRS. DRUMM HAD BEEN ILL, DESPONDENCY PROMPTED ACT Despondent over continued ill health, her mind probably unbalanced, Mrs. William Drumm, a well-known town of Maple Grove woman, committed suicide early this morning by hanging, at her home two miles from Reedsville. Mrs. Drumm’s dead body was found hanging from a rafter in the granary on the farm. Mrs. Drumm ended her life during the absence of her husband from the farm, when he visited the cheese factory to deliver milk. Mr. Drumm left home about 6 and upon his return at 7 found his wife absent from the house. Believing that Mrs. Drumm had left the house to visit the barn or some of the buildings on the farm, Mr. Drumm prepared for his day’s work. Visiting the granary to attend to some chore he found the door open and upon entering made the ghastly discovery of his wife’s body hanging from the rafters of the building. Mr. Drumm hurriedly cut the body down and called for assistance in an effort to revive the woman but it was futile, death having occurred some time previously. The body was removed to the house and efforts were continued in the hope of recalling a spark of life, while a physician was summoned. The physician said Mrs. Drumm had been dead some time. Mrs. Drumm was 35 years old and is survived by her husband and two children, the oldest 12 and the youngest four years old. She had been in ill health for some time past and is said to have been a patient at a Milwaukee sanatorium for a time but her condition showed no improvement and she returned to her home at Maple Grove. Report of the death of Mrs. Drumm and the circumstances attending was made to District Attorney E.S. Schmitz this morning, and it was stated that the case was suicide and no inquest was necessary.

EBERLE, FRANK F. EBERLE, 43, DROPS DEAD IN HOME SUNDAY Stricken Suddenly After Session with Two Companions in Barn; Coroner Kemper Summoned Following a several hour session with two companions last night in his barn on the farm in the Town of Cooperstown, west of Rosecrans, Frank Eberle, 43, was taken suddenly ill after returning to his house and died before his wife could summon Dr. J. H. May of Maribel. When the latter reached the home, Eberle was dead. Dr. May stated that his death was induced by excessive alcoholism. Coroner W.G. Kemper of this city, summoned this morning to the Eberle home doubted if an inquest would be ordered as Eberle had not been a victim of any violence. It was stated that his companions were Adolph Kaslofsky and a young man named Hoffman who resides on farms southwest of Denmark in Brown County. As the story was reconstructed to the coroner this morning, Kaslofsky and Hoffman visited the Eberle farm early Sunday evening and with Eberle proceeded to the barn where they indulged in home brew. It has been common report in that vicinity that it has been a practice among some of the makers of these home brew concoctions to mix with the same a quantity of lye, which it was said gives the liquor more of a "kick". Physicians have declared that if lye in any form was used in the liquor it would serve to bring on serious consequences for any one drinking it. Mrs. Eberle reported that her husband came into the house late Sunday night following the session with his two companions and was immediately taken with a vomiting spell. Alarmed, she summoned Dr. May from Maribel. In the meantime, Eberle had a more severe attack and fell to the floor. In a few minutes he was dead. While at the Eberle home in Cooperstown this morning, Coroner Kemper did not get in touch with Eberle's companions of last night, Hoffman and Kaslofsky, to learn from them just what took place last night prior to the time that Eberle returned to the house, but in the event that an inquest should be deemed necessary, they would be summoned to testify. Reports today were that the deceased farmer has been using home brew for some time and that the practice may have wore him down and resulted in his heart action being unable to throw off the effects of Sunday's affair, thus hastening his demise. Besides his widow, Mr. Eberle is survived by a family of children. Reports this afternoon from Denmark, where the body of Frank Eberle was prepared for burial at the Knutson Undertaking parlors, was that no inquest would be held. The remains are to be taken to the Eberle home in Cooperstown near Maribel tomorrow and funeral services will be held from the home on Wednesday afternoon. Contrary to first reports, it was learned that Mr. Eberle had no children. Besides his widow he is survived by his father, John Eberle who resided on the farm home with his son and three sisters, Miss Mary and Mrs. Emma Rose, both of Racine and Mrs. Joseph Bobblers of Chicago.

They found him dead, and his body mutilated in a shocking condition. Several of his limbs were broken, and his skull badly fractured. In chopping down one tree, it fell upon another, and in attempting to clear it away, it must have fallen suddenly upon him before he could escape.

FLINN, FRANCIS Francis Flinn was found dead/former mail carrier to Green Bay Manitowoc Herald, 24 Feb. 1855 (eulogy also) ******** FROZEN TO DEATH. One of the oldest inhabitants of this village named Francis Flinn, was found dead in the road on Thursday morning ???? ?? in the neighborhood of his own home. The old man was in the habit of indulging in the use of intoxicating stimulus to some extent, which habit doubtless was acqured during his experience as a pioneer, but it is not certain that over indulgence on the night in question was the cause of his death. His age was about 56 years and we believe that he has some experience as a soldier in the Black Hawk war. As a Mail carrier many years ago when there were but few settlers and the mail was carried on foot, he is said to have given repeated instances of fidelity to his trust and fairly earned the commendation of his employers.

FLOSSBACH, RICHARD 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. RICHARD FLOSSBACH Came here in 1856 from Sheboygan. Was a printer in the Nord-Westen office for some time but left we believe because he did not learn the English language while working in a German office. He applied for admission to this office once, but we had no vacancy. Had he applied one month sooner he would probably have been accepted. He leaves a widowed mother and two older brothers who live on the South side. His age was 18, and he sustained a good character.

FOBES, J.L. Shocking Accident - The tannery of the Wisconsin Leather Company was the scene of a terrible accident, yesterday afternoon by which Mr. J. L.

It appears that he was endeavoring to throw on a belt of the wash-wheel when his coat was caught between the gearing of the shaft by which motion is imparted to the wheel and he whirled through twenty revolutions. He was extricated and carried to his residence on Kinnikinnick Avenue, where Dr. Marks visited him and found that his back was broken in consequence of which his lower extremities were paralyzed. At last accounts of the infortunate man was not expected to live until morning. Fobes had been in the employ of the company for some time and while a resident of Manitowoc county twice represented the district in the Legislature. He leaves a wife and two children. The accident is attributed to his carelessness in attempting to pass between the shafting and the wheel, instead of stepping around them. Manitowoc Pilot, Feb. 23, 1871
