UMBELLUS, BONASA TERRIBLE MURDER: A Vivid Description of the Killing. Just as we go to press we learn of the most melancholy occurrence that it has ever been our painful duty to record. Death is always a solemn event, but when the rude hand of the murderer woefully and maliciously sends the leaden messenger that summons the spirit to another sphere of action, then, truly is it horrible! But to be brief, the circumstances as we learn them are as follows: On Monday last two men from this place went out to a sugar bush ostensibly to get some sugar, but taking a shot gun with them they put it to a terrible use. When going through a dense thicket they met Mr. Bonasa Umbellus a resident of that neighborhood and without hestitation fired; and it is said, killed him instantly. Our informant is Mr. App. Reil Fule, who came to town early this morning. Manitowoc Tribune Thursday, April 1, 1869 pg. 4
UNKNOWN, UNKNOWN BODY FOUND--We learn that on Thursday last the body of a man was found at Centerville having drifted ashore. He was rather short--little over five feet--and appeared to be a sailor. He had not been in the water very long. Name unknown. The Manitowoc Tribune Thursday, April 25, 1867 pg. 4
UNKNOWN, UNKNOWN MAN, LISTED HERE AS BEING BURIED, DENIES DEATH TALE Reports that he had met an untimely death in the Manitowoc river during the past winter were branded as not only being entirely premature but also false by George Fox, itinerant painter who returned to this city yesterday with the statement that he had spent the winter in New Orleans. He also denies that he is buried in Potters' field at Evergreen cemetery. Several months ago a floating body was taken from the Manitowoc river at the shipyards after employes of the company had noticed the corpse in the river. Partial identification was made by two West Side residents who knew Fox and his name was listed on the police records as the victim of an unexplained death. Manitowoc Herald News, Manitowoc, Wis. Tuesday, June 24, 1930 P. 6 (Note: Cemetery office can't determine which burial this would be since none seem to match it) ******** DEAD MAN IS TAKEN OUT OF RIVER AT YARD Identity Unknown As No Marks on Clothing and No One Reported Missing Here Mystery surrounds the identity of a man whose body was taken from the river in the rear of the offices of the Manitowoc Shipbuilding Corporation this morning after discovery of the body had been reported by Frank Kinstry, laundryman, on occasion of his daily visit to the yards. Kinstry noted the body floating in the river and it was pulled out by employees at the yards and turned over to the police. That the man had been dead for many days was indicated by the decomposed condition and search of his clothing failed to reveal anthing that might identify him. There was no money or other valuables, no papers and no mark on the clothing that might aid in establishing who the man may be. Dead Man About 50 The dead man is about 48-50 years of age, weighs 165 pounds, 5 feet, 7 inches and wore a pair of top boots, a combination wool and leather jacket and overalls. There were no marks on the body except a small cut on the leg, due probably to contact with some obstruction in the river. It is possible the man may have been lost from a boat although this not accepted because the body has probably been in the water for so long and with little operation of boats that far up river. The body was taken to the Vogelsang morgue and if it is not claimed, will be buried by the county. Police said that they had no report of any person missing here and no one who has viewed the remains has been able to assist in identification. Manitowoc Herald News, Manitowoc, Wis. Friday, May 2, 1930 P. 11 (Note: This entry and the one above may be the same person)
UNKNOWN, UNKNOWN Two Rivers section: BODY IS UNCLAIMED, STRANGER SOUGHT TO CONCEAL IDENTITY TORE PAGES FROM NOTEBOOK IN HIS POCKET Remains taken to Cemetery and Will Be Buried By the County After 3 Day Wait BULLETIN A message received shortly before two o’clock this afternoon by Sheriff ? the Milwaukee Police Department advised him that some parties, who believed that the stranger found hanging in a deserted shack north of Two Rivers Monday afternoon, was a relative of theirs were enroute to Two Rivers in an effort to identify the remains. The message did not give the names of the persons who were coming but indicated that from the description they thought they could identify the body. With no one being able to identify the stranger found hanging in the lonely shack near the Twin River Point lighthouse Monday afternoon, by Capt. Peter Pietroski Jr. of the local fire department, the body was, late today, taken to the receiving vault at the city cemetery here from the Beduhn and Goetz chapel, where the same has been kept in the hope that someone would be able to identify it. The remains will be kept in the vault there for three or four days, and then if no one claims the body, the remains will be buried at the expense of the county. That the stranger made every effort to conceal his identity is evident from a further examination of a small notebook found among his effects. Two or three pages in this book which probably contained writing and possibly the address of a relative had been torn from the book, so that only blank pages remained. While the man carried a receipt made out to “L.S. Williams” the laundry mark on his shirt and collar bore the initials “K.N.” which would indicate that his name was not Williams. Scores View Body. Scores visited the undertaking parlors yesterday and today but none could identify the stranger. A south side school teacher, whose parents reside on the Sandy Bay road, stated that the stranger looked like a man that passed them on the road Sunday evening and acted suspiciously, seeking to avoid them. She paid little attention to the incident then but recalled the actions of the stranger when the body was found. No Foul Play. There is no indication of foul play. The dead man methodically prepared for death. He hung his hat on a peg, put his rubbers under the bench and then dropped the rope over the rafter, tied one end about his neck, stepped on the bench and kicked the same out from under him to drop to his death. Had the rope been an inch longer, his plan would have failed as when Pietroski found the body his toes were touching the boards on the floor of the shack. The electric railway receipt indicated that he had probably been in Sheboygan on Saturday. The general theory now is that the dead man did not want his identity discovered and used every effort to destroy any means of identification. Manitowoc Herald News, Wednesday, April 25, 1928 Page 11 ********* (NOTE: Subsequent articles found no one who could identify the man, so they decided to bury him in a paupers grave in the pauper's cemetery by the hospital, but there's no stone there for him.

WHELAN, HORTON MAPLE GROVE MAN FOUND DEAD AT SIDE OF ROAD MYSTERY IN DEATH OF HORTON WHEALAN(sic), 28, WHOSE BODY WAS FOUND BY NEIGHBOR EARLY TODAY. INQUEST TO BE HELD. Horton Whealan, aged 28, a resident of Maple Grove where he had lived all his life, was found dead on the roadway a half mile from the Watt store early today, the man’s death being shrouded in mystery which District Attorney Schmitz and Coroner Falge will seek to solve by holding of an inquest. The dead body of Whealan, who is said to have been a character of the town, was found early this morning by John Gorgan as the latter was driving his cows to pasture. Report was made to District Attorney Schmitz and Sheriff Engelbrecht and Mr. Schmitz immediately departed for the scene. Later Coroner Falge was summoned and an investigation is being made. Details received from Maple Grove are meager and it is said the authorities have been unable to find anyone who was with Whealan last night. It is said there are no marks on the body to indicate that Whealan might have been the victim of automobile speeders as it was at first suggested. Whealen, it is said, was not about his usual haunts last night and nothing is known as to his whereabouts yesterday. The man is said to have been addicted to drink and may have been a victim to exposure, though the weather was not cold last night. It is believed that Whealen met death sometime late last night as physicians say the man had been dead some hours when the body was found. District Attorney Schmitz and Deputy Sheriff Engelbrecht had not returned from Maple Grove late this afternoon. Manitowoc Daily Herald, Friday, October 22, 1915, Page 1 ********* WHEALAN DIED FROM NATURAL CAUSES IS BELIEF INQUEST OVER DEATH OF MAPLE GROVE MAN IS ADJOURNED UNTIL NEXT WEDNESDAY. BLOOD ON CAP OF DEAD MAN CAUSES INVESTIGATION INTO DEATH Although authorities are inclined to believe that Horton Whealen, the Maple Grove man whose dead body was found at the roadside yesterday came to his death from natural causes, there are circumstances revealed by the investigation made yesterday that may result in unearthing a crime, it is said. The inquest called yesterday was adjourned until next Wednesday after the drawing of a jury, members of which are Patrick Cahill, John J. Cohen, Joseph Remiker, Edward Weld, William Kirby and J.D. Nate. Whealen was last seen alive about 6 o’clock Thursday night when Thomas Fenelon passed the man seated at the roadside a short distance from the point where the body was found later. It is said that Whealen appeared to be under the influence of liquor but no trace of his whereabouts from that hour has been found. Whealen’s cap was bespattered with blood though there were no marks of violence on the body to indicate that the man had been attacked. The presence of blood is a mystery which the authorities will seek to solve before the inquest is called. Whealen’s body was found near the Morrisey home and was face down. The remains were taken in charge by Undertaker Ed Watt of Maple Grove. Whealen has a brother residing at Mishicott and is also survived by two sisters. Manitowoc Daily Herald, Saturday, October 23, 1915,Page 8 ********* There is an article in the Maple Grove section saying he is buried in "the potter's field". I don't know if that's supposed to be by Maple Grove or in Manitowoc. He's not listed in the Manitowoc one. The article is not transcribed because it repeats the other articles already transcribed, but does add the potter's field bit at the end. ********* DECLARES BROTHER WAS VICTIM OF MURDEROUS ASSULT, ASKS INVESTIGATION BE REOPENED FRED WHELAN, MAPLE GROVE, WHOSE BROTHER WAS FOUND DEAD AT ROADSIDE, SAYS HE HAS CLEW TO IDENTITY OF MEN HE ALLEGES ATTACKED AND KILLED MAN - SCHMITZ TO CONSIDER INFORMATION GIVEN Declaring that he is in possession of facts which leads him to believe that his brother, whose dead body was found at the roadside in the town of Maple Grove two months ago, was the victim of a murderous assault. Fred Whelan has appealed to District Attorny Schmitz and Sheriff Engelbrecht to reopen investigation of the case. Whelan conferred with officials this week. Whelan's brother, Horton Whelan, was found dead at the side of the road in the town two months ago after having been missing for a day or more. While the circumstances surrounding the death were considered rather peculiar and warranted an inquest, the coroner's jury returned a verdict of death due to natural causes. At the time of the inquest there was a suspicion that the body had been carried to the spot where it was found but there was no evidence to substantiate this theory. Indians who are said to have been in the neighborhood were also referred to. In his statement to the authorities this week Fred Whelan claims to have secured a clew that leads him to believe that his brother was killed by an attack upon him by an indian and white man in a shack near where the body was found. Whelan is of the opinion that his brother may have been killed in a fight, or by ????? upon and that the body was later carried to the spot where it was found. Just what information Whelan has secured has not been made public but District Attorney Schmitz will consider it and if warranted will re-open the investigation. Report is said to have been made to federal authorities that Indians have secured liquor and it was said that some prosecutions might follow but no action has yet been taken.

WHITE, BRIDGET From the Manitowoc Herald, 24 Mar 1859: Bridget White died, wife of John White.
WHITE, CHARLES W. From Der Nord Westen, 13 Mar. 1902 Charles W. White died Fri. night in a railroad accident in Texas. Following the death of his wife he had been living with his son in Antigo and recently took a trip to the east and south. A few weeks ago it was reported that he met his daughter-in-law in Washington, the wife of his son Clarence who resides in St. Louis. From there they undertook a rail trip through the south and were on a Southern Pacific train last Thurs. night going to Alabama. The train was 2 hours late and in an attempt to make up time by increasing speed, one car of the 6-car train left the tracks on a curve in Sanderson, Texas, and pulled the other cars, locomotive and tender with it. The Pullman car stayed on the tracks. The first car to leave the tracks burst into flames and no one was able to help as its passengers were consumed. 12 people died in this fashion, including Charles W. White and his daughter-in-law. Mr. White was born, if we are correctly advised, in 1826 in New York State and came as a boy with his parents to Wisconsin. His father was a missionary to the Indians in this part of Wisconsin, settling first near Green Bay and then later in Calumet County. Charles learned the Indian language and their hunting methods. As a boy he delighted in playing with the Indian children. In the late 40's he made a trip to Germany with a Mr. Ostenfeldt, brother of F. Ostenfeldt here, and became acquainted with Miss Louise Ostenfeldt there with whom he married in 1849. The young couple resided in Green Bay, Chilton, and Two Rivers, and then settled in Manitowoc in the late 50's where Mr. White practiced law. Mr. White served with the 45th Wisconsin Regiment during the Civil War and was a member of the local G.A.R. Post. Mrs. White died about 2 yrs. ago and Mr. White went to Antigo to reside with his son. He leaves 3 sons, a 4th son having died many years ago.

WICKERT, LIZZIE Died In Life's Morning. Miss. (sic) Lizzie Wickert, daughter of Mrs. Catherine Wickert, died at the home of her mother on South 9th street at 11 o'clock last night. Consumption, that elusive, insiduous foe of humanity, was the cause of her death. She had been sick for about a year but, although the ravages of disease had been apparent to friends, death was not expected. The deceased was born June 28, 1876 and most of her short life was passed in this city. She will be remembered as one by whose presence the world was made a little brighter, a little more loving. Of a sweet considerate disposition, her friends were limited only by her circle of acquaintances. Of a bright, sunshiny dispostion, her mere presence brought with it a cheering influence, a gleam of solace for the care-weary hearts of those who were near and dear to her. Death, ever a sad visitor, seems doubly cruel in this instance. Standing in full sunshine of life's morning, surrounded by those she loved and happy in the consciousness of love returned, she seemed to be just entering upon a life of fullest happiness. Within a few short weeks she was to have become the bride of her heart's ideal and, with the pathetic hope of consumption's victims, she fondly believed that her health would be fully restored 'ere the wedding day arrived. But it was not to be. She has passed beyond the reach of human joys or sorrows. Freed from its frail and earthly tenement her spirit has passed beyond the vail (sic). The bereaved hearts left to mourn her loss may surely find solace in the rememberance of her pure and generous character, her life so full of love and kindness.

WIEMANN, MR. SUICIDE - It is our painful duty to inform our readers of the sudden death of one of the oldest and earliest settlers of our county, Mr. Wiemann, of Neshoto, who in a fit of insanity took his own life last Monday evening in the rear of his farm on the Neshoto river, by shooting himself. We have known him since he first landed in Two Rivers some twenty five years ago, with his wife and a numerous family of little children. He bought a farm near Neshoto on which he has worked hard ever since, so that he was in quite good circumstances; still the fixed idea grew upon him that he was poor and that his credit was ruined forever, which, with increasing conjugal difficulties, led him to end his troubles by taking his own life. He was well educated and, wherever known, highly esteemed for his strict honesty in every transaction and urbanity and kindness to his family and friends.

WILDE, AUGUST 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. AUGUST WILDE His family lives two miles from town, on the Calumet road. He was 18 years of age; a shoemaker by trade, but went sailing this spring as deck hand on the Sea Bird. He came to this place when a small boy. We learn he was a quiet, industrious, well behaved young man. (Article continues in the same manner for each individual lost on the SEA BIRD; Geo. W. Emery, James A. Hodges, Capt. N.T. Nelson, Capt. John Sorenson, Charles Riechen, Joseph Doucett, Henry Nieman, Henry Pfeffer, James Leykom, Richard Flossbach, Amos Meyer, John Melka, Martin Rozezguiatee, Wm. Barter, Casper Klimer, John Foucks, Herman Jacoby, Wenzel Hawlichek, P.C. Danahy, Raymond H. Hunt, Fred Henning Jr., and Thorine Oleson.) OTHERS. We hear of others who were on the boat beyond a doubt--one a Norwegian who has been chopping wood in this vicinity, could not learn his name; and two girls from the country who took passage from here with the intention of going either to Milwaukee or Chicago have not been heard from since the disaster. So it will be seen there were Thirty-one from here certainly, and two doubtful, lost on the SEA BIRD. The Manitowoc Tribune Thursday, April 16, 1868 pg. 4

YATES, MARY From the Manitowoc Herald, 03 July 1858: Mary Yates committed suicide in Kossuth, she hung herself. She was the wife of William Yates. SUICIDE.-Mrs. Yates, wife of a farmer at Frances Creek, town Kossuth, we learn, committed suicide yesterday forenoon, by hanging, in her own dwelling. A messenger arrived in our village in the afternoon, in search of a coroner. We shall have the particulars to-morrow. The Daily Tribune, Manitowoc, Wis. Monday, June 28, 1858 P. 3 ******** The Particulars of the Suicide on Saturday last. On Monday last we gave a brief account of the melancholy suicide of Mrs. Yates, in the town of Kossuth, which occurred on Saturday evening. Mrs. Y. was an English lady nearly 60 years of age, and much respected by her neighbors and friends, and we are informed that she was a member in good standing in the M.E. Church. A desire to return to the land of her birth has been her leading thought for some time past, making her discontented with her situation here. The fear of poverty induced by the depression of the times, perhaps increased the feeling, and doubtless contributed to the causes which deranged her intellect, and led to the commission of the fatal act. She arose from her bed during the night and climbing a ladder in the barn, fastened the rope around some poles above the threshing floor, and descending the ladder a short distance, fixed the noose around her neck, with the knot under the chin, and swung off. As her death was the result of congestion, rather than strangulation, she must have suffered the most terrible agony, and if discovered a short time earlier might have been saved. The circumstances of the case are most lamentable. The Daily Tribune, Manitowoc, Wis. Thursday, July 1, 1858 P. 3.

He had mounted a freight car to set the brakes but fell and fractured his skull as well as sustaining other injuries. He was taken to Reedsville for medical attention but died Wed. He was a farmer living between Grimms and Reedsville and was 45 yrs. old. He leaves a widow and several children. ******** DIES FROM INJURIES. Charles Zohn Falls From Car At Grimms and Sustains Injuries Which Result In Death. ACCIDENT HAPPEND MONDAY. And the Victim Dies Early Yesterday Morning—Was a Well Known Farmer Funeral Tomorrow. Injuries which he suffered in falling from a box car in the quarries of the Union Lime Co. at Grimms Monday resulted in the death of Charles Zohn a short time later. Zohn was employed in the quarries and was assisting other workmen to move the car, being on top to set the brake when it should be place. In doing this he was thrown from the car and sustained a fracture of the skull and injuries to the spine from which he failed to recover. The accident happened late Monday afternoon and the injured man was immediately taken to Reedsville for treatment and died there at an early hour Wednesday morning. A coroner's inquest was held at Reedsville today and a verdict of accidental death was returned. Zohn was well known throughout Manitowoc County and was engaged in farming, residing midway between Grimms and Reedsville. He was 45 years of age, married and the father of a family. The funeral will take place tomorrow from the home. Manitowoc Daily Herald Thursday, May 21, 1903 pg. 1
ZUECKLER, FRANK From Der Nord Westen,05 July 1906: It was reported from Kellnersville that 33-year old Frank Zueckler had committed suicide by hanging himself. He was a single man and operated a farm in Kellnersville with his elderly mother keeping house. He was working in the fields Friday morning as usual and returned to the farm buildings for some reason. His mother called him for lunch, but on receiving no answer went looking for him and found him in an outbuilding hanging from a rafter. He was immediately cut down, but the body was already cold. It was obvious that he had been dead for several hours. It is puzzling why he took this action because he enjoyed the best of health, was financially well-off and had never shown any likelihood of such an action. Whether he led a secret life or was temporarily insane, no one can say. Because the facts of this case were so clear, the County did not call for an inquest. ******** HANGS BY ROPE AND ENDS LIFE Frank Zuekler, Well To Do Farmer Of County A Suicide On Friday Hanging to a rafter in and out house Frank Zuekler, a prominent, well to do young farmer of Kellnersville, was found dead by his aged mother at noon Friday when she made a search for him, alarmed at his failure to appear for the noon day meal. Zuekler had been dead for an hour or two according to physicians who examined the body, summoned hastily after the body had been cut down and removed to the house. Zuekler, who was 33 years of age and a bright young man, left the house early in the morning and was engaged in the field for a time. He returned supposedly to the house, but evidently had stopped at the barn to secure the rope with which he ended his life. No cause is known for the rash deed unless Zuekler may have had trouble of which the family knew nothing. He was well to do financially and had appeared in excellent health and spirits. With his mother he made his home on the farm for years and had never married. The funeral will probably be held Sunday. No inquest was held, it being deemed unnecessary.
