KAMINSKY, CHARLES Killed by the Cars. Yesterday morning about 8 o'clock the news spread that a man had been killed by the cars at the railroad depot. A reporter of the Times immediately repaired to the scene of the accident and found the rumor to be only too true. A man by the name of Chas. Kaminsky, a Polish laborer in the employment of the railroad company, was standing on the side track, about midway between the passenger depot and the freight depot, when he saw a train on the side track nearing him. He jumped over onto the main track, not seeing the cars which were being pushed on this track by the switch engine. The cars were so near that it was impossible to stop them, before the unfortunate man had been thrown under and crushed by the iron wheels. the cars passed over the upper part of his body, killing him instantly. Parties who witnessed the accident say it was horrible to behold the mangled mass of human flesh. The accident is the result of no carelessness, either on the part of the deceased or on the part of those in charge of the train. It is an unfortunate accident, ordained by fate. On account of the noise made by the train he saw approaching, the poor man probably did not hear the train that brought him death. The deceased was a married man, about thirty-three years of age. He leaves a wife and five children, the eldest of whom is eleven years of age. They own a house and two lots in the Third Ward, but otherwise are poorly situated.

KLOZINSKY, GUSTAV MIRROR USED TO AID IN SUICIDE Gus Klozinsky, Newton Farmer Gazes in Glass As Fatal Shot Is Fired. BUSINESS LOSES, CAUSE Series of Misforturnes Prompt the Deed Which was Long Premeditated- Formerly a Resident at This City. Business reverses which in the last few years has caused him the loss of the greater share of his property, prompted the suicide of Gustav Klozinsky, a town of Newton farmer who ended his life on Tuesday with a bullet in the brain. Long premeditated and oft times threatened, the deed was not entirely unexpected by members of the family who heard the fatal shot and immediately discovered the dead body. Klozinsky was seen to enter the wood-shed which adjoins the house, with a small hand mirror and the revolver with which he committed the deed must have been concealed about his person at that time and although it was thought strange that he would take a looking glass into the shed no suspicions were aroused because of the fact that the weapon was not seen. Within a few minutes the report of the pistol, a 32 calibre one, was heard and no further doubt existed as to the object of the man's visit to the outbuilding. Fearful of the grewsome sight which it was expected would meet their gaze, members of his family were loath to break open the door to learn the awful truth and a constable living within a short distance was summoned to enter the place. Leaning upon a stool with the right hand tightly clasping the revolver and a gaping, bleeding wound in his head. Klozinsky was found stone dead, the bullet which had lodged in his brain, effectively accomplishing his end. The purpose of the mirror was explained in the fact that its position on a table denoted that it had been used to reflect his position and made doubly sure the killing process. A wife and four children survive to mourn him. Klozinsky formerly resided in this city, his occupation being that of a laborer. Believing that he could better his position, he moved to Nordheim two years ago where he purchased the Weber Bros. store and saloon, going into debt by so doing. Prosperity did not follow, however, and soon after he again changed residence selling the property at a loss of over $2,000 and purchasing the saloon of Charles Rick, near St. Wendel. Here, also, he was unfortunate and after a short period, during which creditors began to pursue him he gave up the struggle and ended it all, as told. Afflicted by a nervous disposition and of hasty temperament, the suicide had often threatened to kill himself and especialy was this true when in outbursts of passion he would rail against Fate and his adversities. Given to brooding over his misfortunes and trials the man would suffer aberation of mind for long periods and it was during one of these spells that the deed was committed. Manitowoc Daily Herald, Wednesday, June 22, 1904 P. 1 ********* On Tuesday morning at 8 o’clock Gustav Klozinsky, who ran a saloon in Centerville, killed himself by a shot in his head. In former times Klozinsky had run a farm in Kossuth, but later moved to Manitowoc. Some time ago he had bought the place of the brothers Weber in Nordheim at a rate of $3,500 but was soon very happy to be able to get rid of it for $1,500. A few months ago he had bought the place of Rieck’s in Centerville – again at a high rate. On Monday he drove through the neighborhood and stuck bills concerning a picnic which he was supposed to arrange. Back at home at night he told his saloon guests that everything was for free this night. Finally he destroyed all the furniture in his saloon. The next morning at 8 o’clock his wife heard a shot in the shed and she immediately found out that Klozinsky had taken the revolver from the place where it was supposed to be and she suspected something really bad. But because she feared her husband and his violent character she didn’t have the heart to check on him. Klozinsky himself did not reappear until noon and finally people went into the shed where they found the man sitting on a chair with a deep gunshot wound on his head. He had placed a mirror on the table in front of him to be able not to miss the target. The bullet had hit his right temple, had gone into the brain before it went out of the head again at a point over his left eye. The death must have occurred immediately. The repeated losses of his investments mentioned before might have driven the man to desperation, to alcohol and finally to death. Der Nord Westen, 23 June 1904

KNAPP, ELIZABETH From Der Nord Westen, 25 Feb. 1897: Death in Town Gibson last week of 80 yr. old Mrs. Elizabeth Knapp.
KNEEVERS, BETTE (b. 02 Jan 1900/d. 18 Feb 2003/Manitowoc, Manitowoc, WI/SSDI) Born on January 2, 1900, Bette grew up with one thought: “All I talked about was being in show business,” she says. Working in Milwaukee as a waitress, she saw an advertisement to join the “Fearless Gregg” show. Bette not only joined the show, but a year later, married the owner, Fred Gregg. Bette performed a stunt called “Autos that Pass in the Air”: She and Fred climbed a tall ladder, then got into two cars parked one behind the other at the top of a ski-type jump. The vehicles took off, reaching 150 mph. As they flew off the ramp, Fred’s car did loops above Bette’s, then both landed on a special platform, built to absorb shock, “or we would have been killed. I was never afraid; what a daredevil I was,” she marvels. The “Fearless Greg” show traveled for 20 years, entertaining the King of England and the Emperor of Japan. Bette and Fred met Bing Crosby who asked them to perform in “Pennies from Heaven.” It was their last performance. Fred’s age kept him from continuing, so they settled in California until his death in 1965. Bette then moved to Plymouth. In 1978, at the Plymouth Senior Center, she met Earl Kneevers, a retired court reporter. They married and lived happily until Earl’s death in 1993. Bette says, “I had the life I wanted. Not many people can say that. You just have to go out and get it.” From "The Centenarian Spirit in Wisconsin", interviews produced by the Wisconsin Bureau on Aging and Long Term Care Resources. Photo

KUBRITZHSZK, JOHN John Kubritzhszk of Two Rivers committed suicide yesterday at that place by drowning. He was a single man with no known relatives, and as strongly addicted to drink, which together with poor health impelled him to the act. Manitowoc Daily Herald, Tuesday, December 18, 1900, Page 3 ******** Two Rivers Man Who Took His Life Was Well Known Character John Cubicek, who committed suicide at Two Rivers Monday, was well known in this city, having spent considerable time here. He was formerly a resident of Tisch Mills and was at one time prosperous. A few months ago he broke his leg by falling from a wagon and was brought to the hospital here to be cared for at expense of the city. The Two Rivers Chronicle says: "He was quite an old man and was much addicted to drink. No one knew of his suicide or of his intention to end his own life, but Monday afternoon the finding of an overcoat and cap under the south approach of Washington street bridge which were identified as his caused the truth to be at once suspected. It took but a short time to find his body over which an inquest was held and a verdict of suicide rendered. The body was taken in charge and buried in the city. He was last seen alive about ? o'clock Monday morning. He was then crossing the bridge [and] was apparently on his way to the depot to take the morning train. It was Anton Bond, porter at the depot, who met him on the bridge. The journey he took was a long and distant one, but it was not by rail.

KURTZWELLY, JACOB FATAL CASE OF STABBING. Jacob Kurzwelly was stabbed at the Franklin Hall on Thursday night by C.F. Rosserse?uauer and died instantly. We learn that there had been some difficulty between the two but shall forbear commenting upon the circumstances of this unfortunate affair. The deceased had a wife and 4 young children and was about 35 years of age of ordinarily quiet disposition. A coroners inquest was held on Friday morning and a verdict of wilful murder rendered against the accused who surrendered himself to the authorities. Manitowoc Tribune, Manitowoc, Wis. Saturday, September 16, 1854 P. 6 ******** Fatal Stabbing- On Thursday night about 11 o'clock, Jacob Kurtzwelly was stabbed in the side by Charles Rosstauscher, inflicting a wound of which he instantly died. The event occurred in front of Franklin Hall, on Franklin street. Rosstauscher is in the custody of Sheriff Van Valkenburgh, and an examination was commenced on Friday morning before Justice Reuter. We shall publish the testimony as soon as it can be obtained and until then we forbear making any comments. Manitowoc Herald 1854 September 23 page 2 column 1 ********* The Stabbing Case- A Coroner's Jury was summoned on Friday by Justice Reuter, to view the body of Jacob Kurzwelly, who brought the verdict of wilful murder against Chas. Rosstauscher. On the examination it was proven that Rosstauscher, was seen to stab the deceased, and that at the time it occurred the two men had each other by the throat. The prisoner was fully committed and sent in charge of the officers to the Sheboygan jail to await his trial. In the mean time we do not deem it any part of our duty to allude to any of the rumors afloat, or to give any statements that may lead to prejudice one way or the other, until the sworn testimony becomes the property of the public. Manitowoc Herald 1854 September 30 page 3, column 1 ******** The Circuit Court commenced its regular Session on Thursday last. The case of Charles Rosstauscher charged with killing Jacob Kurtzwelly was brought to a close on Tuesday, and the Jury after an absence of three hours returned a verdict of acquittal. The trial has created much interest, and the Court room has been crowded most of the time. The charge of Judge Gersline was an able one, and during its delivery the room was as silent as the chambers of death. We were not present during the whole of the trial and shall not venture to comment upon the verdict further than to state that there were reasonable grounds of doubt, and we can readily believe that this was in favor of the accused, as it should be. The Jury were men who fully realized the responsibility which rested upon them, and their (next sentence is unreadable) effect upon the community may be unfavorable, there is no reason for supposing that any other jury would under the same circumstances have given a different verdict. The history of the case is one which should be a caution to those who carry deadly weapons, and a lesson of prudence to all, for though there may be reason to believe that the killing was in this instance to some extent justifiable, yet none will deny that the quarrel was a foolish one and that its consequences have produced a result which all must deplore. One of the parties a man of herculean frame is struck down in the pride of manhood and conscious strength, one instant alive and in the enjoyment of health; the next gasping in the agonies of expiring dissolution; the other shut up for months in the damp prison cell, away from the free air of Heaven, and with no companion, save the omnipresent fiend of remorse, his mind burdened with anxiety for the future, and his health and energies wasting under the torture of his situation. The testimony will be reported for the Tribune by one of the members of the Bar and we shall publish the most important parts of it. Manitowoc Tribune, Manitowoc, Wis. Thursday, March 29, 1855 P. 3 ******** A MOB-ALMOST! GREAT EXCITEMENT TRIUMPH OF LAW AND ORDER. Our village was last evening the scene of what had nearly been a tragedy worthy of the early days of California. The cause of the outbreak was the arrest of C.F. Rosstausher on a charge of rape upon a married woman. The excited populace principally German were determined to lynch him, but the daring and judicious conduct of the officers who had the prisoner in charge, and persuasions of some of the bystander, induced them to forego their purpose at the moment when chance had placed their intended victim in their hands. Rosstausher was tried on April last for murder, stabbing of Jacob Kurtzwelly ?? ?????? escaped be??? ???? the occasion of his arrest at the time and though he was accquitted, there were those of his countrymen who feel ???? him guilty of wilful murder and their ??????? has doubbtless op?tated in fanning the popular flame on this occasion. After an examination before Esq. Reuter, the prisoner was bound over on $1000 bond for his appearance at court and com??atte in default. As he was going down the stairs of the Court Room, a rush was made and the officers and prisoner were in the midst of a crowd of excited men, who were evidently thirsting for blood. In the melee the prisoner was thrown to the floor, and officer Carpenter received a severe kick in the chest, but succeeded in reaching the door, and when they passed our office were evidently making time that would be disgrace to 20-40 nag just starting on his first heat. They were followed by the crowd, some of them hooting and yelling for others to "come on." Others crossed the ice below the bridge and headed them off, but as they were about to pounce upon their prey, the officer drew a revolver and protested that he would drop the first who laid hands upon him, and before the mob had recovered from their surprise at his coolness, he had him in a place of safety, and it required but little persuasion to induce them to quietly disperse. Whatever may be the need of condemnation awarded to the individual object of this outbreak, we cannot forego the expression of our gratification at the complete triumph of law and order, for such we consider it. The law a pail?dom con?ine the antidote to every social evil, if it does not we have the power which the people of no other contry possess, we can change our laws when they are inefficient or unoperative. We sincerely hope that it will be long before we shall have occasion to chronicle the disgrace which will attach itself to our beautiful Village, when the overwrought passions of the human heart shall expand themselves in lawless deeds of violence.
