On Thursday morning, Feb, 16, at 2:00 o'clock, George Way Howe, who had been a patient suffer for a great length of time, was released by the Angel of Death at his home in the viliage of Stockbridge. The death of Mr. Howe entails more than ordinary regret to the people of his own town and the county in general for he had been a resident of the county for nearly that length of time. At the time of his death he had attained the remarkable age of eighty-eight years and until his last sickness came upon him was vigorous, hale and hearty for one of his years.

George W. Howe was a native of Conneticut, having been born at Litchfield, that state, June 29, 1823. In 1843 he was married at Chautauqua, N.Y., to a Sarah Featherly, who died in 1847 leaving one child, Geo. W. Jr. now deceased, a soldier in Co. C of the 17th Wisconsin infantry. In 1845 he came west and located in the lead mine district at Mineral Point, Wisconsin, remaining there untli 1848 when he married for the second time Mary White of Chautauqua, N.Y., and moved to Stockbridge, maintaining his residence in that place until his death. He engaged in farming and has also followed the carpenter trade. He enlisted at Chilton the second year of the civil war, Aug 15, 1862, in Col. Harrison C. Hobart's regiment, company E of the Twenty-first regiment, experianceing his first fight with the rebels at Perryville, in October 8th of the same year, and being in everyone of the small skirmishes from that time to the battle of Chickamauga. He was among those captured with Col. Hobart and taken to Belle Isle and thence to Richmond. Mr. Howe was removed to Danville and later to Andersonville prisons made historic by the civil war. He was one of the party who tunneled out of the prison at Danville but was recaptured and con- {missing a line of article} being sent to Andersonville, from which he and others again tunneled out but was recaptured and put in the stocks. Although the various attempts to escape, from prison were frustrated this did not dampen his spirits and he and his comrades repeatedly made attempt to escape confinement until they were finally paroled, given rations and sent north. He joined his regiment at Alexandria, Va., later and was honorably discharged June 9th, 1865, shortly after returning to his home and family at Stockbridge and again taking up his home and family at Stockbridge and again taking up his previous occupation, and farming and carpenter work. Mr. Howe was prominently identified with the growth and progress of the western portion of the county. He was a man that who took deep interest in public affairs and was never afraid to express his opinion. He was one of the early members of the I.O. of O.F. lodge and lived up to the rules and regulations of the order in every respect. He was also one of the charter members of the B.J. Sweet Post, G.A.G. and stood high with his comrades who elected him commander and adjutant a number of times. As a citizen he was active in everything that aided in the upbuilding of the village. No better neighbor could be desired for he was ever ready ready to lend a helping hand, extend a courtesy and do a kindly act for friend and neighbor. For a number of years he was elected to the position of justice of the peace and he dealt fairly with everyone who had business in his court. No gathering was complete without his presence for his genial, good nature made him the life of all meetings.

The funeral took place on Saturday Feb. 18th, with services in the M.E. church conducted by Rev. O.A. Nuss, the burial being under the auspices of I.O.O.F. lodge of which he was a charter member.

Patricia Willis Shared this obit

In the town of Chilton, on the morning of the 17th inst., Mrs. Margaret {Lannan} Higgins, wife of Thomas Higgins, Esq., aged 70 years.

The deceased was a native of the Parish of Lissenuffy, County Roscommon, Ireland. Twenty-four years ago, in company with her husband and a large family of children, she bade farewell to her native land and came to this country in order that her children should grow up and enjoy the advantages of our free institutions.

For six years she was a resident of Rhode Island, and then removed to Calumet County, which she made her permanent home. Of the many virtues of the deceased to all who were personally acquainted with her, it is unnecessary to speak. She was a true type of a genuine perfect Irish woman: Open handed, open hearted, hospitable, kind, affectionate and agreeable to all with whom she came in contact, she won the regard of all who knew her, and we know of none of her acquaintances but what deeply regret her departure for the other and better world. For years she has been afflicted with the disease which caused her death, and although her sufferings were acute and at times almost unbearable, she bore them with a fortitude becoming a true and upright Christian.

It was hard to part with the aged companion of her earthly pilgrimage, and the beloved sons and daughters and affectionate grandchildren; yet when summoned to meet her Maker, she obeyed the call with s smile upon her lips and a "God bless you," for her fellow beings believing that "He doeth all things well." Requiescat in pace. Our venerable and respected friend, Mr. Higgins, and the other members of the family have the heart-felt sympathy of the community, as was evinced by the large turn-out at the funeral.

This obit was donated

On Saturday afternoon last, Wm. H. Honey was found dead in his stable, from violent blows upon his head, either by some person or by the kicking of a horse. Mr. Honey resided on Morris Street, kept a poultry yard, was a man of good habits, was aged about 60 years. When found he held in his arms a portion of the harness of a horse, that stood unhitched near by-the collar and hames still remaining on the horse. The position of the body, the number and character of the wounds on the head, the finding of a key and pocket rule, the missing of the pocket book, which he always carried in his pants blood on a fork, and other things seem to indicate that he was murdered and that his body was arranged to give the impression that it was the result of being kicked by the horse. The coroner's jury had not sufficient evidence before them to decide as to the agency of the death. It is to be hoped that time will unravel the mystery.-Fond du Lac Journal.

Death Of A Veteran

Nickolas Marshal Hephner, of the First Wisconsin Cavalry, Died at His Home in This City Sunday Last

The Times is called upon this week to chronicle the death of one of the most respected and beloved citizens of this county. At 5:30 o'clock, Sunday evening, October 22, 1905, Nicholas Marshal Hephner died at his home on State street in this city at the age of 78 years, 10 months and 2 days. Mr. Hephner has been in poor health since last spring and his friends and family could notice him gradually fail but they kept up hopes that he would recover and be able to be around once more. During his last sickness he never complained and was always pleased to have his old comrades and friends call and visit him. When the news of his death was announced it cast a shadow over the entire community although it was not unexpected.

Marshal Hephner was born at New Lisbon, Ohio, Dec 20, 1826. In 1849 he came to Wisconsin with his parents and settled in Center, Outagamie county, where he began to carve out a home in the then dense forest. The following year April 23, 1850; he was married to Ellen Sage, at Green Bay and the young couple began life as pioneers. They succeeded in getting a good start and everything moved along smoothly until the civil war broke out when Mr. Hephner left the plow to take arms in defense of the old flag. He enlisted in Company d. of the First cavalry and was an excellent soldier. At the time of the capture of Jefferson Davis he was detailed as a guard over the prisoner and for three hours he kept watch on this noted rebel. At the close of the war he returned to Center and the following year disposed of his farm and came to this county, purchasing a farm in the town of Charlestown. He remained in that town until 1901, when he disposed of the place to one of his sons and came to this city to reside.

Marshal Hephner was ideal citizen. In character kind-hearted and sincere, true and ever helpful to his family and friends. He was industrious and worked constantly but cheerfully from his early boyhood until he was by illness unable to do more. He was a devout Christian and a staunch member of St. Augustine's Catholic church. He took an active part in the building of the handsome edifice which that congregation has in this city, giving time and money to the cause. He was an ideal father and husband and made his home one that was filled with pleasure and happiness. During his last illness his family came from long distance to see him, making his last days on earth comfortable and happy.

The funeral took place on Wednesday morning from St. Augustine's Catholic church and was attended by a large number of his relatives, neighbors and friends. Delegations from every town in the county and from his old home in Center were here to pay a last tribute to a friend. The Jos. B. Reynolds G. A. R. Post, of which he was a member in good standing, attended the funeral in a body and buried him with the military honors that he had earned by his faithfulness to his country and fellow men. Envy hatred and emnity had no place at his grave and whoever dies thus certainly leaves to his beloved ones a dear consoling heritage-a memory unblemished.

He leaves beside his widow, four sons Peter, of Oklahoma, Michael, of Souty Dakota, John and James, of this place and four daughters, Mrs. J, H. Corcoran, of Kaukauna, Mrs. J. W. Gleason and Mrs. Edw. Barnaby, of Ironwood, Mich., and Mrs. Robt. McGrath, of Iron Mountain, Mich., also one adopted daughter, Mrs. Wm. Lavoillette, of O'Neill City, Nebr., to mourn his death.

Pioneer Resident Dies at Age 85

Funeral services for Ferdinand E. Hachez, 85, former resident of New Holstein, who died Sept. 25 at the home of his daughter, Mrs. Edward Kelm of Grand Rapids, Minn., were held last Wednesday at 2 p.m. from the Turner Hall with the Rev. A. G. Schmid officiating. Burial was made in the local cemetery.

The body was brought to this city Wednesday morning accompanied by Mr. and Mrs. Kelm and rested in state in the Turner hall until the time of the funeral. Mr. Hachez was one of the few charter members of the New Holstein Turnverein having belonged to the organization since its inception in 1867.

Pall bearers at the funeral included former friends and associates, George Schroeder, George Leverenz, Henry Libke, Herman Heft, Edward Funke and Diedrich Schaar.

Mr. Hachez was born in Alsace Lorraine, France, April 10, 1848, a son of Mr. and Mrs. Ferdinand Hachez Sr. He came to America in 1852 with his parents who located on a farm two miles northeast of New Holstein. He grew to manhood as a pioneer of this community and was one of its few remaining early settlers.

In June 1869, he was united in marriage to Miss Elizabeth Boie of New Holstein. They resided on a farm for a number of years and later lived in this city. After the death of his wife on March 6, 1919, Mr. Hachez resided with his daughter, Mrs. William Luehr of Manitowoc until her death. He then returned to New Holstein and resided with Mr. and Mrs. Ferdinand Matzen for three years. The past ten years he spent in the homes of Diedrich Schaar of this city, and his daughter, Mrs. E. Kelm at Grand Rapids.

Survivors include one son, Louis, Spokane, Wash., and two daughters, Mrs. Stephen Price, Louisiana, Mo., and Mrs. Ed. Kelm of Grand Rapids, Minn. Six sons and daughters preceded him in death.

NOTE: Ferdinand E. Hachez arrived in New York in July 1854 with his parents Ferdinand H. Hachez and Louise Hachez, according to his naturalization document. Naturalization and census records state that the elder Hachez husband and wife were born in the Hannover region of Germany, while the younger Ferdinand was born in Holstein, Germany. The reference to Alsace-Lorraine in the obituary is thought by family to refer to the home area of the Hachez family before the French Revolution when they moved to Germany.
