Frederick A. Boardman - May 21, 1864
This obit was donated

The youngest and one of the most promising Wisconsin officers, was Colonel Frederick A. Boardman of the Fourth Wisconsin Regiment. The painful intelligence reached this city Wednesday that he was shot through the head and instantly killed, while on a scouting expedition near Baton Rouge, on the 4th inst. The despatch bringing the news was followed by his remains which left Gairo Wednesday, and will arrive here this afternoon.

Col. Boardman was born in Herkimer county, New York, and was but thirty years of age at his death. He has been actively engaged in the service of the government ever since he came to manhood. Graduating regularly from the naval school at Annapolis, he was first assigned to the Susquehannah, one of the vessels comprising the noted expedition to Japan, commanded by Commedore Perry, during President Fillmore's administration. While in the navy he visited the most distant portions of the world, proving himself on all occasions a promising and competent officer. When the war broke out, he accepted a commission as Major of the 4th regiment, since which time he has accompanied that regiment in all its battles and expeditions, the attack on Port Hudson excepted, at which time he was lying sick in hospital. At the capture of New Orleans, he was selected by Gen. Williams, with two companies of the 4th regiment, to accompany the expedition for cutting off the communication between Fort Philip and the city, and it was in great part owing to Col. Boardman's experience, that the expedition was successful, himself leading his men on foot through the currents which threatened to defeat the enterprise. When the city was entered, he was appointed to the command of eight companies of infantry assigned tot he duty of taking possession of the public building. Gen. Butler subsequently appointed him one of the provost commissioners for the administration of the judicial business of the city, which position Major B. declined, preferring to accompany his regiment. Upon the promotion of Col. Paine, Maj. Boardman was commissioned Lieut. Col., and upon the death of Col. Bean he was promoted to the chief command of the regiment, which place he has filled with marked ability. He was by nature honest, generous and brave. In the midst of the temptations and facilities for plunder which surrounded him. His personal integrity has remained as unquestioned and unsuspected as his personal courage. His death is undoubtedly die to that fearlessness in action for which he was distinguished. The state could not have lost a man who has reflected more honor upon the service.

Col. Boardman was a nephew of Mrs. Josiah A. Noonan of this city, and the funeral will take place from the residence of Mr. Noonan tomorrow. Notice of the hour will be given in the morning papers. - Milwaukee News May 13th.


Judge John A. Bryan - June 11, 1864
This obit was donated

We regret to learn from The Appleton Cresent, that Judge John a. Bryan of Menasha, died at his residence near that place last week. His age was not given but at his death his years must have numbered nearly four scores. In the prime of his life, Judge Bryan was recognized as a man of marked ability, and as a far sighted and successful politician. For many years he was Chairman of the democratic state central committee of Ohio and contributed largely to the success of liberal principles is that state.

Under the administration of President Tyler, he was appointed Assistant Postmaster General, which position he held for some years. About the year 1850 he removed to Wisconsin and became the editor of this paper, then published by the late Dr. B. b. Cary of Racine, in which place he continued until a change in the proprietorship of the office, when he was appointed register of the land of office at Menasha, a position which afforded him a kind of occupation and retirement suited to his advanced age, and which he held during the administration of Pierce and Buchanan. He was highly connected by marriage 1 being the father-in-law of Gov. Weller of California and of Hon. Mr. Edgerton of Ohio for several years a member of congress from that state.

Judge Bryan was a man of pure impulses and unquestioned integrity. In his daily intercourse with his friends he was uniformly courteous, affectionate, unassuming and genial exhibiting all the nobler characteristics of the old fashioned well bred gentleman. His private correspondence was voluminous and he numbered among his personal friends many of the most distinguished public men of the country. To the day of his death he was a firm and consistent democrat, and bitterly deplored the troubles into which the nation had been plunged by an abandonment of those old-time principles, to the advancement of which his life had been dedicated. Peace to the good men's ashes. - Mil. News.

Death of a Pioneer
One of the Early Settlers of New Holstein Died on Wednesday at the Age of Eighty-Eight Years


On Wednesday, November 10, another of the sturdy pioneers of New Holstein passed to that mysterious world beyond the grave. A message received in this city that day brought news of the death of Nicholas Boie, father of Mrs. E. W. Paulsen, who lived to the age of 88 years, 4 months and 5 days. Mr Boie had been in feeble health for the past year and although his death was not entirely unexpected it brought the deepest sorrow to the members of his family and to old neighbors and friends in the community of which he was a part for the past fifty-five years.

Nicholas Boie was born in Germany, July 21, 1821. In 1850 he was married to Cecilia Tonner and three years later they emigrated to America and located in the woods in the town of New Holstein, one mile south of the village. The task set before him and his life partner was no easy one. Located in a dense forest with little or no experience they began the work of carving out a home. The privations and hardships which they underwent would have discouraged a less determined couple and caused them to abandon the work, but not so with this couple, for they were determined and their efforts were crowned with success.

For nearly fifty years, or until some six years ago, they resided on the farm which they secured from the government when they located in New Holstein. Some six years ago they disposed of the farm and moved into the village where they spent their declining years enjoying the fruits of their labor. About a year ago Mr. Boie's health began to fail, owing to old age, and he was given every care and comfort that his children could secure for him.

During his long residence in New Holstein he was recognized as an upright and patriotic citizen, a good neighbor, devoted husband and father. He is survived by his widow, three sons, John of Clark county, Henry and Wm. Of Spokane, Washington, and six daughters, Mesdames, Ferd Hachez, Fred Matzen, Aug. Hansen of New Holstein, E. W. Pauisen of Chilton, Chas. Sebelin and Albert Arps of Ouray, Colorado. The funeral will take place this Saturday afternoon.


Mathew Benson - Chilton Times February 6, 1892
This obit was donated

The following was taken from the Cherokee, Iowa, Democrat: The death of Mathew Benson, which occurred in this city Monday evening, brought universal sorrow to the community. "Matt" as he was familiarly known, had been ill about ten days, but from the start his sickness was of serious nature-pneumonia being the complaint-and for several days it was felt that he could not survive. He was a man of splendid physique and apparently always in the enjoyment of good health. His only weakness was in his lungs, and this made him comparatively easy victim for the dread disease which so quickly carried him away. The diseased lacked two days of being 35 years of age. He came to Cherokee from Wisconsin some fourteen years ago and has spent these years here in various pursuits. Among his fellow men he made a reputation and a record for goodness of character which any young man might be proud to leave behind. He was quiet and unassuming, reliable in every position of trust, honorable in the highest degree and generous to a fault. When we hear the living speak so kindly of the dead as they have of Matt Benson we feel that the life of such a one is worthy of emulation.

The funeral services were held at the Catholic church at noon yesterday, where the remains lay until 10 o'clock, when they were taken to Elkhart Lake, for interment. The fire department of which deceased was assistant chief and treasurer, escorted the remains to the depot. Richard Benson, a brother, and M. H. Goggins, a cousin arrived from Wisconsin previous to Matt's death and accompanied the remains to their last resting place. A father, four brothers and three sisters are left to mourn.

Loving friends, weep not for him, he longed to be at rest.
How happy happy he shall be when pillowed on his Savior's breast.
O, the hope, the hope is sweet, that we soon in Heaven may meet:
When we shall happy be, rest from pain and sorrow free.

This obit was donated.

Died of brain fever at the state hospital, at Oshkosh, March 17th 1882, {sic} Bela S. Bishop, aged 49 years and 10 months.

The deceased was born at Readsbora, Vt. And moved to Wisconsin with his parents when about 15 years of age. In 1861 he enlisted in Co. C., 10th Reg., Wis. Vol., and remained with it until a shot though the shoulder, while in battle, resulted in his discharge in June 1863. Since that time he has been engaged in several mill enterprises and was well and favorably known in business circles. Last Sept. he had a fall by stepping on a log where the bark was loose, which slipped off, causing him to strike his whole weight on his left side, breaking two ribs and producing his physician said, partial paralysis of the kidneys. From the injury he never fully recovered. But being unusually strong by nature, he exerted himself as soon as possible, to a greater degree than the average man would do in perfect health. In his attendance at the industrial convention at St. Louis, he was without sleep for three successive night and he only obtained one night's rest after his return, when family sickness kept him up two nights more. He soon began to show of undue brain excitement. Neglecting sleep and rest so much needed and continous exercise of both mind and body, his condition rapidly terminated in insanity. And the rumor that it was caused by christian science was die to the fact that as that peculiar theory had recently been brought to his notice, he discussed it while insane and it seemed to produce a determination to resist any medical treatment and to deny that he had any disease. There seemed to be no alternative but the asylum, where it was hoped skillful treatment would restore his health, but medical skill failed. His brother, W. R. Bishop, was with him when he died and on Saturday, the 19, he was laid beside his wife in the Neenah cemetery, and covered with choicest flowers, brought by a host of Wausaukee friends, many of whom, as employees had followed him from the old saw mill in Brillion to the new one in Wausaukee and thence tot he grave. A beautiful arched gateway covered with rare roses, white lillies and smaller fragrant flowers, with the "flowry gates ajar" was surmounted by a white dove with uplifted wings and holding in its beak the fruits of the harvest. At the base in purple immortelles, was his name. This has been photographed. Many Odd Fellows and Good Templars from several lodges were present, he being a member of both. Mr. Bishop leaves two little girls Ellarene and Beulah, who have been cared for by his niece, Miss Alice Bishop since the death of his wife, three years ago. The stereotyped words of praise which compose the ordinary obituary of good, bad and indifferent alike, are not needed to express the position he held in the hearts of a multitude of friends and acquaintances. In the memory of each and all, are treasured his acts and words of humanity, and kindness, which will never be effaced through life. What was truly said of him cannot be as truly said of all. He had not a known enemy in the world.

At A Ripe Old Age

Death Claimed One of the Early Settlers of Chilton


By the death of Mrs. Olive S. Breed, which occurred at her home on Lincoln street on Wednesday afternoon, Nov. 8, 1905, Chilton loses one of the earliest pioneers. Mrs Breed at the time of her death had attained the remarkable old age of 84 years, 9 months, and 5 days. She was a woman of wonderful constitution and never had many days of sickness until June last, when she was taken ill and obligated to keep to her bed. Previous to her last illness she was able to read without glasses and occupied her leisure time in making lace and doing other fancy work. Her illness came on suddenly and it would seem that the human machinery gave out all at once, her death being the result of old age. She was born in Pitcher, Chenango county, N. Y., Feb. 3, 1821, and in 1842 she was married to J. H. Breed, remaining at Pitcher until 1847, when they moved to Sharon, Pa., where they resided three years and then came to Wisconsin and located at Sheboygan Falls. Where she and her husband engaged in the hotel business. They remained there until1854 when they moved to Fond du Lac and spent a year. In 1855, when Chilton was but a hamlet with a few small cabins, they came here and conducted a tavern on the present site of the Hotel Chilton. They followed this business for a short time when Mr. Breed opened a store on the corner which the Gutheil block is located. This store her husband was conducting when the call for troops was made by the government in 1861, and he enlisted in Co. K. of the Fourth Wisconsin regiment going to the state camp. While there Mr. Breed became ill, was sent home and died on Sept. 8, 1861. Mrs. Breed, like many another pioneer, was left with little of this world's goods a family of four small children. Filled with that spirit that is invarialby shown by women who are made to rely on their own resources she went in work with a determination to provide a home and educate those in her care. In this she was successful and lived to see them grow up into respectful and useful citizens. During the early days of Chilton she was always among the first to offer her service to her struggling neighbors and her good work has been repeatedly spoken of by those who knew her in the early days. The last years of her life have been happy ones and free from care. While she has made her home with her daughter, Mrs. Frank Fox, she has nearly every year travelled about visiting other members of her family and has enjoyed it as few women of her age would. Her entire life has been of usefulness, good deeds, always endeavoring to make those around her happy. The world has been made better by her example of self-denial and her reward in the world beyond is assured.

The funeral will take place today, Saturday, at ten o'clock with interment in the family lot in the Breed Cemetery.

She leaves one son, J. H. Breed, of Vastron, Wash., and three daughters, Mrs. Thomas Morgan, of Waupaca, Mrs. Helen Miller, of Groton, South Dakota, and Mrs. Frank Fox, of this city, to mourn the death of a true and devoted mother.

Prayer Card for Art Berrens

In Loving Memory of Art Berrens

Born: June 8, 1925

Died: September 8, 1997

A limb has fallen from the family tree.
I hear a voice that says, "Grieve not for me."
Remember the good times, the laughter, the song.

The good life I lived, when I was strong.
Continue my heritage, I'm counting on you.
Keep smiling and surely, the sun will shine through.
My mind is at ease, my soul is at rest.
Remember the good times, I truly was blessed.
Continue traditions, no matter how small.
Go on live your life, don't just stare at the wall.
I miss you all dearly, so keep up your chin.
Until the days comes, we're together again.

"I'm free"

Don't grieve for me for now I am free.
I'm following the plan God laid for me.
I took His hand when I heard Him call.
I turned my back and left it all.
I could not stay another day, to laugh,
to love, to work or play.
Tasks left undone must stay that way.
I found that peace at the close of the day.
If my parting has left a void,
then fill it with a remembered joy of a friendship shared,
a laugh, a kiss, and yet these things I too will miss.
Be not burdened with times of sorrow,
I wish you the sunshine of tomorrow.
My life's been full, I savored much,
good friends, good times and a loved one's touch.
Perhaps my time seemed all to brief,
don't lengthen it with undo grief.
Lift up your heart and share with me,
God wanted me now....
He set me free!!!
