RIECHEN, CHARLES 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. CHARLES RIECHEN Was a German. Came to this country in 1853, and in 1855 came to Manitowoc. He was a carpenter and joiner and for some years past has worked for A.E. Goodrich. In the winter of 1866 he was appointed a foreman of the repairing business, at which he has worked continually since. He was a superior workman and gave very good satisfaction to his employer. He frequently traveled up and down on the line and this spring received an order to come to Chicago. His wife feared to have him go, why shoe could not tell, but duty called so the day before starting he made his will and had his life insured for $1000. Thus she is cared for although he is no more.

ROBINSON, MARY DIED. - September 2d, 1870, at Cato, Wis., Mrs. Mary Robinson aged 70 years, wife of Elder Daniel Robinson, M.D. Mrs. Robinson was a native of Sutton, Mass. In tender years she removed with her parents to Hubbardtown Vt., where at the age of eighteen she was married to Dr. Robinson. For the last 26 years she has resided in Wisconsin - 20 years in Racine Co., and since 1864 in Manitowoc County. Her married life extended to a period of over 51 years. As a wife, she was a model. As the mother of six children, it seems enough to say, that of those who have died, and of those who survive, she had evidence that all were hopeful subjects of covenant mercies. She led her children one by one to the closet of prayer; and God answered her requests. A life in such beautiful harmony with her Christian professions, made one of the most charmingly modest of women, a constant, eloquent preacher of the Gospel of Christ. For such a one to die, all who knew her was gain. Manitowoc Tribune Thursday, September 8, 1870 pg. 1

ROMMARE, CHILDREN OF JACOB Melancholy Casualty. - The house of Jacob Rommare, in the vicinity of the Tannery, near Two Rivers, was burned down on Tuesday afternoon last, and with great sorrow we are obliged to state that two of his children - aged 5 and 2 - perished in the flames. The father was engaged at his occupation in the Tannery, and the mother was calling at a neighbor's but before leaving her house she locked the door. It is supposed that the children were suffocated by the smoke before the fire had communicated to their persons, a supposition, which if true, relieves the sad accident of one of its most horrible features. All the men working in the two tanneries were promptly on the ground upon the first alarm but too late to render any assistance.
