SABLES, CHILD OF W.J.

Death of a Two Rivers Baby Causes a Cholera Quarantine
If reports are true, the first death of a Wisconsin person from Asiatic
cholera has occurred, an 8-months old child of W.J. Sables, of Two Rivers,
having died on board the steamer India while enroute to Syracuse, N.Y.
The steamer has been quarantined on account of the child's death which
occurred Monday. The Sables family came in contact with some European
emigrants at Duluth. The doctors say the child died of cholera morbus,
but to be on the safe side the body was cremated at Detroit.

ST. MARTIN, MAXIM Maxim St. Marten(sic), an old resident of the county, died at the home of his daughter, Mrs. Wm. Elliot, in Two Creeks, at the age of 95 years. His wife, who was said to be 103 years of age, died about a month ago. Some of the old residents of Two Creeks claim Mr. St. Marten was 107 years old, but this is doubted. About ten years ago Mr. St. Marten put out one of his eyes while working in his garden and about two months ago he put out the other eye in exactly the same way. He suffered much pain from his eye during the last few weeks of his life and, no doubt, his death was hastened thereby. The funeral was held at Two Rivers Monday. Manitowoc Daily Herald, Wednesday, November 1, 1899 P.2 ******** Death on Fri. of one of the oldest men in our county, Maxim St. Martin in the home of his daughter Mrs. Elliott in Two Creeks. It is said he was 107, which is way too much, although surely he is above 93 but not over 97. He wouldn't give his age. While working in his garden several years ago, he somehow was poked in the eye and lost the sight in that eye. His wife died of old age several weeks ago.

SAVAGE STEPHEN STEPHEN SAVAGE HURT DAY AFTER FATHER'S DEATH Stephen Savage, a town of Cato farmer and a son of James Savage who died Sunday, was seriously injured Monday when the team he was driving became frightened and overturned the wagon on which five heavy milk cans were loaded. Mr. Savage was buried under the debris with one of the heavy cans, filled with milk, pinioning him to the ground and he was unconscious when found. The runaway occurred as Mr. Savage was leaving his farmyard for the cheese factory. The horse tore from the wagon and at first it was not known whether Mr. Savage has been in the rig or not.

SCHAFFT, JOSEPH GIVEN NO WARNING Death Summons Came to Joseph Schafft as he Labored. NEARLY 75 YEARS OF AGE. Engaged In Building a Fence when He Suddenly Fell to the Ground-Never Regained Consciousness. Suddenly, and without warning, the Death Angel came to Joseph Schafft yesterday and called from its earthly mission the spirit of an aged and respected citizen. He died at the home of his daughter, Mrs. Matt Ruguskey, Nineteenth and Washington streets, at 2 o'clock as a result of appoplexy. Mr. Schafft arose early yesterday morning and was about his house as usual. He attended services at church in the morning and upon his return was working about the place. About 11 o'clock he started to build a fence about a lot he owned on Marshall street between Nineteenth and Twentieth. About an hour later he was found in an unconscious condition, and friends picked him up and carried him to the home of his daughter. Medical aid was summoned and every effort made to revive him. It proved of no avail and at 2 o'clock he quietly breathed his last, never having regained consciousness. Deceased was born in Germany March 4, 1825, and came to America in early life. In 1872 he removed to this city, where he has since resided. He was a man highly respected by all who knew him. An aged wife and one daughter survive to mourn his loss. The funeral will be held at 9 o'clock to-morrow from the home of his daughter. Manitowoc Daily Herald, May 4, 1899 P.1


SCHALOWITZ, CHILDREN OF MR. From Der Nord Westen, 10 Oct. 1878: Death of a son and daughter, of Mr. Schalowitz of Mishicott, from typhus. Another son is critical and the whole family is ill.


SCHARF, HENRY From Der Nord Westen, 14 Feb. 1901: Henry Scharf, who died of typhus in Manila, was not from Brillion as we had earlier reported, but was a son of Mr. Wilhelm Scharf of Rockland. His parents were quite upset when he decided to join the regular army, but the desire for adventure was too strong and he wouldn't listen to them. ********* GAVE HIS LIFE IN HUMANITY'S CAUSE Another Manitowoc County Boy Numbered With the Soldier Dead in the Philippines Henry Scharf, Rockland. Dies From Disease While Serving in Co. H, Third Reg. - Enlisted in 1898 - Roll of Honor of County Has Seven Names Another Manitowoc county boy has yielded up his life in humanity's cause and is now numbered with the soldier dead in the far-away Philippines, Henry Scharf, son of Mr. and Mrs. William Scharf, of Rockland, having died at Manila January 30, of typhoid fever. The first news of the demise of their son came to the parents in the published reports of death in the army under that date, and the investigations since made have no doubt as to the identity of the dead. Young Scharf had been in the service some considerable time, first with a Wyoming Volunteer company and later enlisting in the regular army, being assigned to Company H, Third Infantry, stationed near Manlia. The date of his last enlistment was December 1898 and since that time he had been in the field with his company. A few weeks previous to enlistment, Scharf, who had been in Wyoming visited his parents at Rockland, and stated his intention of entering the regular army. Objection was raised, and later persuasion, the young man apparently conceded to the wish of relatives and gave up the idea of enlisting. He left home ostentiously to resume work in Wyoming but in a few days it was learned that he had joined the regulars and was on his way to the Philippines. Days, weeks and months, passed with no word from the absent one until in November of last year, when a letter was received stating that he was ill of typhoid fever and then, following on January 30, the name appeared in the list of dead. No doubt exists in the minds of the parents as to the authenticity of the report, in-as-much as the regiment and company given are the same as those in which their son served. Communication has been opened with the authorities at Washington with a view to having the body returned here, and of ascertaining more complete details of the demise. Henry Scharf was 26 years of age and previous to his residence in Wyoming, was engaged with his father in farming, the elder Scharf being an extensive land holder in the town of Rockland. He was known in this city, through frequent visits and is spoken of as a young man of high character and exemplary habits. His untimely death will be deeply regretted by all with whom he has acquainted. The death of Scharf adds the seventh name to the roll of honor of Manitowoc county in the war for humanity. The list is made up as follows: William Hein, died at sea while on the return voyage from Porto(sp) Rico. Fred Schwalbe, died at Chickamauga of disease contracted in the army. Fred Engel, died in military camp at Charleston, of disease. Gustave Thronson, came home ill and died after long suffering from disease contracted in service. Emil Kuwalle, died at Holy Family Hospital from disease. Chas. Singlemann, killed in battle while serving in the Philippines. Brought here for burial.

SCHMIDT, JOHANN JR. TEN YEAR OLD BOY DETAINED AT ELLIS ISLAND, ADMITTED TO JOIN MOTHER AT TWO RIVERS. Johann Schmidt, Jr., ten year Bavarian boy who was detained at Ellis Island when he arrived on December 19 from Germany in company of his uncle and denied admission by immigration authorities because he is deaf, is enroute to Two Rivers where he will arrive tonight to join his mother, Mrs. Isadore Leicht. A message from the boy himself at Chicago. Father Killed in War The boy's father was killed in the World War and later Mrs. Schmidt, the widow came to the United States to make her home with a brother at Two Rivers. Her young son was left behind and recently when Johann Schmidt, an uncle, decided to come to America the boy accompanied him. Upon arrival at Ellis Island however the lad was refused permission to enter the United States and was about to be sent back to Europe when Senator Lenroot was appealed to. Mother Has Remarried Mrs. Schmidt, who made her home with her brother Adam Nebel at Two Rivers, has remarried and is the wife of Isadore Leicht of that city. In the appeal to the immigration department it was pointed out that if the boy was sent back to Europe he would be a waif, having no relatives there. Assurance that his mother and relatives here would care for him led to the suspending of the order against his admission and there will be a happy reunion at Two Rivers tonight between mother and son. (No newspaper named, end of December 1922) (Note: I cannot find Mrs. Leicht on the site)

SIGMAN, DAVID Mr. David Sigman, age 81, passed away at Saddleback Community Hospital in Laguna Hills, California, February 1. born in Brest-Litovisk, Poland, at the age of three, he immigrated to the United States where he settled with his parents, Leo and Bessie Sigman at Two Rivers, Wisconsin. While attending the Two Rivers High School, he developed skills in oratory and debate. In a one year period, he and three of his brothers, each representing a different high school class, secured a state championship for oratory. David Sigman's love of a good political fight was enhanced by his meeting Bob LaFollette. While attending the University of Wisconsin, David campaigned and won a three term seat in the state assembly. His interest in politics and economics led him into the labor movement where he became AFL regional director for a five state area. Among his friends were the labor movement greats of the era, including William Green, the Reuther brothers and John L. Lewis. The American Jewish Committee asked him to form the National Labor Service whose function it was to discourage discrimination of minorities. This job he held for eight years. Following retirement from the labor movement, he joined his brother-in-law, Mr. Marshal Rotter in partnership in a hardware business. Again he worked at this job for eight years. Following what he thought was his final retirement, he was summoned to serve on several federal committees in Washington D.C. where he contributed to the writing of Social Security and Workman's Compensation laws. This led to another cause which was the welfare of Senior Citizens. Mr. Sigman was instrumental in forming the Allied Senior Citizen's Council, Project AWARE and was on the committee that established the first Senior Citizen's Center in the state of Wisconsin. He encouraged political activism as well as recreation. Survivors include his wife; Bernice (Rotter) Sigman; a daughter, Barbara Subeck of Fullerton, California; a son, Richard of Ottawa, Illinois, and three grandchildren. He was preceded in death by four brothers and two sisters. Memorials may be sent to the local Senior Citzen's Center. Manitowoc Herald Times, Mon., Feb. 9, 1987 page 15

SMITH, FLOYD ABANDON ALL HOPE THAT MISSING BOY LIVES (photo) Hope that Floyd Smith, the missing South Side boy, might be alive, to which the mother and friends have clung for a week, has all but been abandoned and the conviction is being forced that the lad met his death in the river, all facts developed by the investigation seeming to point to this fate for the boy. Floyd disappeared a week ago and while at first there was a theory that the boy might have been kidnapped by his own father, who resides at C?are, Mich., it is pretty well established that the boy was drowned in the river in vicinity of the up river docks, though efforts to recover the body have been futile, the dragging of the river during the week having been without result. Another effort will be made Sunday to recover the body by dragging the river. Friends of Mrs. Smith have volunteered to aid and the proffer of assistance is appreciated by the mother who is suffering from the terrible uncertainty as to the fate of her boy. The public will assist in the work tomorrow. The missing boy was a bright lad and came here with his mother several weeks ago when Mrs. Smith accepted a position in the city. The above picture is an excellent likeness of the boy. Manitowoc Daily Herald, Saturday, October 14, 1911 P.1

SOENKSEN, HUGO Died - On Thursday, February 28, at his father's residence in Mishicott, Hugo Soenksen, aged 24 years, after a short illness. So has passed away a young man of more than usual promise in life. A character comparatively rare in these fast days was the deceased, quiet, unassuming in demeanor, strictly correct in his habits. A gentleman in his intercourse with others. Of strictest integrity in business. Young as he was he had laid the foundation of a character which time could not have failed to build up into the highest type of manhood. He was put about to start into business on his own account. Soon to have been married to the woman of his choice. The future seemed all fair before him when death blotted out all the bright and fair hopes built upon him. "The good die young, But they whose hears(sic) are dry as summer dust, Burn to the socket." An immense concourse of people gathered at the funeral on Sunday afternoon and testified by their presence to the respect and esteem in which the deceased was held and the sympathy felt for the afflicted ones. An eloquent oration was pronounced by the grave by Fred Heineman Esq., of this city. Manitowoc Lake Shore Times, Tues., Mar. 4, 1884 page 1

SOUPANZI, TONY KILLED A MAN, DIDN'T KNOW IT An Italian Laborer at Grimms Line Kilns Quarry Strikes a Fellow Worker Over the Head and Kills Him Alleged Murderer Returns to Work not Knowing That he Had Killed a Man Tony Soupanzi, an Italian laborer at the Grimms lime Kiln was killed yesterday by a fellow worker named Nick Shupina. The two men became involved in a quarrel during which Shupina claims that Soupanzi struck him and struck him in the face. Shupina claims that he acted in self defense when he struck Soupanzi over the head with an iron bar. It is claimed that the two men were enemies of long standing and it appears that they became involved in an altercation immediately after returning to work after dinner. According to Shupina's statement, Soupanzi struck him in the face. This is substantiated by a gash in the man's face where he was struck. It appears that Shupina then struck Soupanzi with a bar crushing his skull. The two were alone when the quarrel occurred and no one saw the deed committed. Shupina returned to his work immediately having struck his comrade down and appears not to have been aware of the serious effect of his blow. Sheriff Cary and Deputy Puls were at once notified and immediately left for Grimms by team. Puls arrived first and took Shupina into custody and he was taken to this city to the county jail. Shupiina is unmarried but Soupanzi had a wife and family in Italy to whom he was sending money to have them come to America. A coroner's jury to view the remains of the murdered man was drawn today and will hold an inquest tomorrow. The members of the jury are Frank Walters, 4th Ward, Two Rivers; Chas Wallechlaeger, 3rd Ward, city; Fred Massman, Two Creeks, Chas Kunz, 2nd Ward, City; Sam Rouiller, Mishicot and Fred Schech, 3rd Ward, city.

STUEBER, FRED AGED WHITELAW MAN FOUND DEAD IN HIS HOME, VICTIM OF POISON AT HIS OWN HANDS Grief over the death of his wife several months ago, coupled with worry over business affairs which he had been unable to handle and which had resulted in appointment of a guardian for him, is believed to have prompted Fred Steuber, an aged Whitelaw man, to take his own life. Stueber was found dead in his home yesterday, a victim of poison, self administered. Stueber had mixed a quantity of paris green in an earthen bowl and drank a portion of the mixture. The unfortunate man was found seated at the table in his home by neighbors who investigated when Stueber failed to visit his unusual haunts for several days. The man was last seen Friday afternoon and it is believed that he had been dead since Friday night or Saturday morning. No inquest was held, District Attorney Brady and Coroner Falge after investigating deciding that there was no need of an inquest, the evidence of suicide being complete. Stueber was 65 and had resided at Whitelaw for years, being a mason by trade. He was the owner of a small home and an acre of land which he had disposed of following the death of his wife, but there was some difficulty over the deed and a guardian had been named for Stueber and the ? was to have come up at the next term of court. It is believed that worry over this, coupled with grief over the death of his wife prompted the suicide. Mr. Stueber is survived by no immediate relatives, though step children of a former wife survive him. The burial will be held at Whitelaw. Manitowoc Daily Herald, Tuesday, May 29, 1917, Page 1

JOSEPH SVOBODA TWO MANITOWOC COUNTY BOYS HAVE MADE SUPREME SACRIFICE FOR COUNTRY— GIVE UP LIFE Name of Sergt. John Singer, Who Left Here With Co. H., in Casualty Lists, Death Due to Disease—Joseph Svoboda Dies Over There And News Received Two more Manitowoc County boys have made the supreme sacrifice for their country—given their lives. The name of Sergeant John Singer of this city appears in the casualty lists forwarded from “over there” by General Pershing on Saturday and confirmation of the death of the Manitowoc boy was contained in messages received from the war department by his parents, Mr. and Mrs. Alex Singer, the same day. Simultaneously with the news of the death of Serg. Singer, Mrs. Anna Swoboda who has been spending the winter at Huntington, W. Va., arrived here and brought the news of the death of her son, Joseph Swoboda, who was a member of the U.S. regulars, Swoboda’s death occurred some time ago and his mother was notified at Huntington where she was staying. It is presumed he was killed in action. News of the death of Sergt. Singer spread over the city Saturday night and caused sorrow to a large circle of friends. He was with Co. H in the border campaign and later left here with the command when it was mobilized at Camp Douglas preparatory to being sent to the European front. Singer’s death was due to pleuro-pneumonia and occurred at one of the base hospitals in France. No other details are known. Mr. Singer is one of the first Manitowoc boys to die “over there” and while he was not killed in active battle his memory will be revered, none the less as one of the brave heroes of the nation. Familiarly known as “Happy Jack” the local soldier boy was one of the most popular in his command. Previous to his enlistment and departure he had been employed with the Rathsack Sons’ Co. in this city. During the time Co. H was on the Mexican border, he was an assistant to the cook of the company and a brother, Alex Singer, left here with the command as a cook. It is not expected that the body of the Manitowoc boy will be sent home for burial at this time. His parents reside on Columbus street. Sensational rumors were circulated Saturday night that six Co. H boys had met death in the battle on the western front but the reports are untrue, as it is not believed that Co. H has yet reached the firing line.

SWENSEN, ALBERT (an article about his house) A Cobble Stone House With a deep ravine to the right, and hills to the rear as a setting, Mr. Swensen has constructed a beautiful home patterned after the English-Norman type of the fifteenth century, built of cobble stones taken from the basement, and which fits so well into the picture that it looks as if he had grown it there. Even the trees that grew there naturally seem to fit into the scheme of landscaping. When he started excavating for the cellar of this house he found so many beautiful cobble stones of such diverse colors that he decided to construct the house of them, and the effect is so absolutely in keeping with the ruggedness of the surrounding landscape, that all who chance to pass on the Calumet road toward Valders, marvel at its beauty. There are seven rooms and a bath in the house. The kitchen is finished in tile, and is one of the best equipped of its kind and leads directly into the dinnette, which in turn leads into the living room. One must sit in this room for a while and study it to really appreciate it. Along one side is a large fireplace built of cobble stones. To the left of this in a corner stands a grandfather clock, the works of which were brought to this country by his grandfather on his mother's side, Arne Asberg, in 1852. Mr. Swensen designed and built the case for the works, patterning it after the old Norwegian type of hall clock. Next to the fireplace stands an old spinning wheel which his mother brought over from Norway and which she used for many years. Music Came Natural Music came natural-to Albert Swensen, being one of the direct descendants of Johann Svendsen, one of the foremost musicians of Norway in his day. His grandfather (missing piece) Buys 40 Acres Mr. Swensen had his eye on the piece of rough land not far from his home- stead for many years before buying it. That deep ravine and stoney hills suited his idea of natural scenery, so in 1926 he purchased forty acres which included what his neighbors considered some of the most worthless land in the community. It was while he was excavating for the cellar that he hit upon the idea of building the house of cobble stones. He had his own ideas of how he wanted the house and supervised the building of the house from the time it started until the last stone was in place. Among the stones dug up was one which took the shape of a skull of some antediluvian creature that is supposed to have roamed the country before the flood. This stone was used in the construction of the fireplace upstairs as the central figure in the chimney above the firebox. Stones of many colors may be found in this fireplace, and each was selected by Mr. Swensen because it fitted into his particular idea of what it should look like when completed. Wild Game Preserve There are ten pairs of Silver Foxes on the place, nearly every breed of rabbit known to the domestic world, purebred Angora cats, and a high egg producing strain of White Leghorn chickens known as the Ta?????. He has a team of horses and three Jersey cattle. He has fenced off the ravine so that no stock can get to it, hoping, he says, to keep it in the wild state. A driveway laid up with stones leads to the basement of his house from the rear where he keeps his car. The landscaping has just begun about the place, he says, and plans to make new additions in the near future until he has it completed the way he wants it.
