GEYER, GEORGE From Der Nord Westen, 07 May 1908: Sunday three boys 14 year old George Geyer, son of the proprietor of "Lake House" on Buffalo Street, his somewhat younger brother Tony and Harry Tuege took a trip on the river in a canoe from the 8th Street bridge. They went first to the Goodrich dock and then to the Northwestern Railroad bridge where they turned around. On their way back Harry Tuege was feeling sick and asked to be let out. George, who was steering, pulled over to the bank at State Street and let off Tuege and his brother Tony, and then he went to take the canoe back. As he got near the Wisconsin Central Railroad freight shed, a steamer pulled into the slip and the canoe wobbled, then the wave from the wake of the steamer hit the tottering canoe and George Geyer fell into the river. There were men standing outside the warehouse and saw the accident and immediately went to his help. He appeared once and then was never seen again. The police station was phoned and Police Chief Drews came over with officers and grappling irons. They were able to reach the boy's body almost immediately and pulled it from the water. From the time of the accident until his body was pulled out, only about 15 minutes had elapsed, and several witnesses said that when he was pulled out the body showed signs of life. Dr. Meany had been immediately called, but despite all efforts of over an hour the boy was declared dead. The body was turned over to his parents.

GLYSZ, VERONICA CHILD'S PLAY IS FATAL Veronica, Six year Old Daughter Of Michael Glysz, a Victim Of the Flames ATTEMPTS TO LIGHT A FIRE And Her Clothing Is Inflamed, Burning Her In Most Frightful Manner- She Cannot Survive-A Strange Coincident Another fatality was added to the long list of the past few months when Veronica, the six year old daughter of Michael Glysz, a laborer residing on Twentieth street, was terribly burned and will die from the effects of the burns. The accident happened shortly after 2 o'clock. The child was playing in the road and in attempting to light a pile of rubbish that had been raked up, the match ignited her clothing and before assistance could reach her, she had been fatally burned. The entire lower portion of her body was charred and when a physician arrived he held out no hope for recovery. The child suffers intensely and her condition is most pitiable. A number of other children were playing with the child but they were so frightened that no assistance could be rendered, even had they been old enough to appreciate the seriousness of the accident. It is a strange coincident that just three years ago this time the girl's mother lost her life in a similar manner, being badly burned and suffering the most intense agony for five days before death relieved her. A father, four brothers and two sisters make up the afflicted family. Manitowoc Daily Herald, Friday, May 04, 1900, Page 1 ********* SUFFERS NO MORE Little Veronica Glysz Dies From Her Burns Just as the birth of another day was announced by the tolling of the midnight hour Friday, death relieved little Veronica Glysz from her sufferings and the soul took its flight to the maker. For hours after the sad accident wherein her body was burned so terribly the child suffered the most excruciating pain and all that medical skill could suggest was powerless to afford relief; until death mercifully interposed and claimed her for its own. The accident is one of peculiar sadness and the sympathy of the entire community will be extended to the bereaved father and family. Veronica was a bright child and very popular with her playmates. The funeral will probably be held Monday morning. Manitowoc Daily Herald, Saturday, May 05, 1900, Page 1 (NOTE: There is a Veronica Glhyz(sic) d. May 4, 1900 co. death index v.6 p.249)

She picked up the kerosene can to douse the apparently cold wood, and flames shot up, exploding the can, throwing burning oil all over Mrs. Glyz. Michael Glyz, her husband, was ill but was summoned by her cries so that he began to attack the flames but at the same time warned the still sleeping children. Neighbors came over to put out the burning clothing of Mrs. Glyz, but she was already burned over her entire body. Medical help was called, but the poor lady lingered in pain from Fri. morning until Tues. noon before passing away. She leaves 7 sorrowing children as well as her husband.

GOETZ JOHN MARTIN HORRIBLE ATROCITY! A horrid murder was commited near the Branch Mills in this County on Sunday evening last. We gather the following from the statement of one of the Coroner's jury, and it is a review of the evidence, which came before it. A German named John Martin Goetz, hearing a noise about his premises went out and found two men whom he ordered off, and on their refusing to leave attempted to drive them away. They commenced beating him with clubs and he called his son to his assistance, the boy received a severe blow on the head which knocked him down, and he retreated to the house. When he left the two men were pounding his father with clubs and the appearance of the ground indicated a severe struggle. When he again returned in company with a neighbor the men were gone, and groping about he stumbled over the corpse of his Father already stiffening in death. Near the place where the body was found, two clubs newly cut and trimmed, were picked up, and an axe covered with blood and hair was also found lying near the spot. The head of the corpse was horribly mangled and bruised, the shoulders, arms and sides bore the marks of blows, inflicted with bludgeons. Goetz leaves a wife and six children, the youngest less than a year old. We have seldom heard of a more aggravated case of homicide, and the b??? recital of the outrage is sufficient to chill the blood with horror. The boy has a large gash on the top of his head, which he says was inflicted with a club. Sheriff Adams has offered a Reward of $200, for the apprehension of the Murderers, and the officers are on track of those on whom suspicion rest. Manitowoc Tribune, Manitowoc, Wis. Thursday, January 31, 1856 P. 3 ********** $200, REWARD! The above reward will be paid for the arrest of the person or persons who murdered John Martin Goetz in the town of Manitowoc Rapids on the night of the 27th inst. Suspicion rests upon James Batler and John Ryan. Batler is about 6 ft. high 27 or 28 years of age, black hair and whiskers, is good looking, wore when he left a Grey sack coat blue overalls and black hat. Ryan is about 23 years of age, light brown hair, has a scar on the top of his head, wore a brown sack coat and gray striped pants. Manitowoc Jan. 28th. 1856 F.W. ADAMS. Sheriff of Manitowoc county. Manitowoc Tribune, Manitowoc, Wis. Thursday, January 31, 1856 P. 3 *********** From the Green Bay Advocate, February 7, 1856: MURDER MOST FOUL We learn that a horrible murder was committed in Manitowoc county, last week, under the following circumstances. - A German was preparing to leave his home for Manitowoc with a load of shingles, when he was met by three Irishmen who insisted upon turning his load over, and when he resisted them, they took an axe which they found on his sled and deliberately cut him to pieces. The son of the German, a small lad, came to the rescue of his father, but was soon overpowered by the Irishmen, chased into the house, and stabbed several times with a knife; but we learn that he will probably recover. One of the three murderers was captured and is now in jail in Manitowoc. The other two have been traced through this place on their way, it is supposed, to Lake Superior. The Deputy Sheriff of Manitowoc Co. is on their track. ....also this from the Green Bay Advocate, February 14, 1856: The name of the German mentioned by us, last week, as having been murdered, by two Irishmen, near Manitowoc, was John Martin Goetz. He leaves a wife and seven children, the oldest 15 years, and the youngest less than six weeks, and in destitute circumstances. We learn that the men supposed to be the murderers of Mr. G. worked last summer on the River Improvement and lived in the woods a few miles east of Wrightstown. The Sheriff of Manitowoc Co. offers $200 reward for the arrest of the murderers.

GRAYCAREK, JOS. JOS. GRAYCAREK, 24, MARIBEL, ENDS LIFE AS RESULT OF WORRY OVER LAWSUIT INVOLVING OWNERSHIP OF A HORSE - FOUND IN BARN Despondency caused by worry over differences with his father is believed to have been responsible for the suicide of Joseph Graycarek, a Coopers- town youth whose dead body was found late yesterday hanging to a rafter in the barn on the premises of Joseph Kellner, where he had been employed since April as a hosteler. Graycarek left the hotel late in the afternoon and was missing at supper and when search was made for him, the body was discovered in the hay loft of the barn. Graycarek had secured a heavy rope in the barn and had thrown the end over a rafter and then placed the noose he had made over his head. The feet were within an inch of the floor. The man had been dead for only a short time when the body was found as he had been about only an hour previous. The body was cut down and Dist. Atty. Healy and Coroner Falge in this city were notified and Dr. Falge immediately left for the scene to conduct an examination of the body and investigation of the case, which was clearly one of suicide and no inquest was ordered. The dead man was a son of Frank Graycarek, of Cooperstown, and was a hard working, industrious young man who bore an excellent reputation. He had recently purchased a 40 acre farm, paying $4,000 for the property which he had leased to a relative. A short time ago Graycarek became involved in a law suit over a horse, it being said that his father was interested in the case, and the boy had worried over the matter and it is believed that this caused despondency which led to his rash act. Graycarek had given no indication that his trouble had affected his mind, and a short time previous to his death was about the place in apparently cheerful frame of mind. Graycarek's mother who died twenty years ago is said to have suffered from an attack of mental disorder before her death and it is possible that worry over his affairs had unbalanced the mind of the son and that he committed suicide in a moment of temmporary insanity. There is little doubt but that Graycarek was insane. Several months ago the young man was in court upon complaint of his father, charged with having threatened the life of his father and sisters as result of trouble over the horse case. The body was taken in charge by relatives and will be buried at Maribel, probably tomorrow. Manitowoc Daily Herald, Wednesday, May 21, 1913 p.5

GUENTHER, ADAM COUNTY BOARD PROCEEDINGS REPORT OF VISITING PHYSICIAN TO THE TRUSTEES OF THE MANITOWOC COUNTY ASYLUM FOR INSANE; In conformity to law, I hereby submit my eighth annual report for the year ending July 1, 1917. During the past ????e months there have occurred ten deaths among our two hundred odd inmates as follows: July 5, 1916-Thomas Nash of cancer of rectum, aged 65 years.[Evergreen, Manitowoc] Aug. 14, 1916-Mary Heindl of valvular heart disease, 88 years.[Evergreen, Manitowoc] Sept. 7, 1916-William Welsh of aortic insufficiency, 55 years. [Evergreen, Manitowoc] Oct. 8, 1916-George Hartel, of pleurisy, 60 years. [Evergreen, Manitowoc] Dec. 12, 1916-ADAM GUENTHER, of cerebral hemorrhage, 74 years. [Can't find burial] Feb. 25, 1917-Frank Nooker, of arteric sclerosis, 72 years. [St. Mary, Mishicot twp] March 22, 1917-John Brost of pneumonia, 46 years. [Holy Trinity, School Hill] [John Braest on 1910 Manitowoc census-asylum list] May 5, 1917-Wilhelmina Pfeiffer of pneumonia, 75 years. [Pioneers Rest, Two Rivers] May 6, 1917-Wiedmaus Waston (sic) of cerebral hemorrhage, 70 years. [Wiedeman Wasten-Evergreen, Manitowoc] June 27, 1917-Catherine Johns, of arteric sclerosis, 76 years.[Evergreen, Manitowoc] Since the last report a portion of the Klingholz farm, lately purchased by the asylum has been set aside for a cemetery for the interment of those inmates dying, and unclaimed by relatives or friends. Under the humane management of Supt. Drews the patients are made as comfortable as possible under the circumstances. The systematic running of the farm furnishes an abundance of meat and vegetables, enough and to spare. To Mrs. Drews, the matron, praise is due for the efficient care of the kitchen and the preparation of plenty of plain but nourishing food. The many years of service the attendants have been employed testifies to their efficiency and trustworthiness in the care of the unfortunates. And lastly too much praise can not be bestowed to the trustees for the painstaking manner of the performance devolving upon them. For these various reasons our county asylum is ever acknowledged as one of the best in the state. Respectfully submitted. Louis Falge, M.D. Upon motion of Mr. Gennrich, the report was adopted unanimously upon roll call.

GUETSCHOW, CHRIS. NEWTON FARMER FOUND DEAD ON ROAD LEADING TO HIS HOME, HEART FAILURE OR COLD Chris. Geutschow’s Dead Body Found by Neighbor is Believed to Have Suffered Heart Attack or to Have Succumbed to Cold on Way Home. Had Been in Clark Co. for Visit With his journey almost completed and the lights of his home in sight, Chris Guetschow, a well known Newton farmer, on his way home, was stricken by heart failure and succumbed to the severe cold last night when returning to his home, his dead body being found near the road a short distance from his home early today. Mr. Guetschow was 57 years of age and is survived by a widow and one son, John, at Newton. Whether Mr. Guetschow succumbed to the cold or suffered an attack of heart failure will never be known but relatives are inclined to the latter belief as he was subject to heart trouble.

He spent the night here with friends and yesterday rode to Silver Lake with Mr. Kreuger, a friend.

The body of Mr. Guetschow was found near the Winkle farm, 20 acres removed from his own home and about 25 minutes walk from the point where the dead man met Mr. Fessler. It is believed that Mr. Guetschow was overcome by cold or that he suffered a sudden attack of heart trouble. Mr. Guetschow told friends here of the experience he had in getting from Clark county, trains being delayed by snow and he said that passengers were paid $1 an hour to help clear the tracks with shovels. Mr. Guetschow had expected to be home Wednesday. Two brothers, residing in the northern part of the state, and three sisters, also survive.

GYLLAND JOHN John Carl (Hap) Gylland John Carl (Hap) Gylland, age 64, of 11824 Point Creek Road, Newton, died unexpectedly Thursday morning, April 22, 1999, at his home of an apparent heart attack. A Memorial Service will be held at 3 p.m. Sunday, April 25, 1999, at the Meiselwitz- Vollstedt Funeral Home, Kiel. Rev. Erick Adams, Pastor of Kiel Alliance Church will officiate. Cremation has taken place. He was born May 14, 1934, in Superior, Wis., son of the late Carl and Edna Flaten Gylland. John was a 1952 graduate of Superior East High School and also obtained an Associate Degree in Tool Engineering. On October 16, 1953, he married Barbara Gamble. He worked as a railroad telegrapher in Superior after his marriage. From 1955-1958 he served with the United States Army Signal Corp. including a tour in Green land. In 1996 he retired from the Foster Needle Company, Manitowoc, where he worked for 39 years. During his retirement years he enjoyed golfing and genealogy. He was a past master of Manitowoc Masonic Lodge.

John was an exceptional man and an exceptional father. Through thick and thin he always stood by those he loved and never failed to show it in the little things he did. The never forgotten card on birthdays and Valentine's Day with the endless XOXOXOXOXOXO, says it all.
