J. M. Clifford - The Sheboygan Press - February 3, 1917
Kay R. shared this information

{Green Bay Gazette}

J. M. Clifford, railroad builder and Milwaukee Road official, died shortly before 10 o'clock today in a hospital here after fighting a number of days against arterial sclerosis. Complications set in and caused the demise. Mr. Clifford was 55 years old.

Beginning railroad work as a boy of fourteen years, Mr. Clifford performed duties of brakeman, agent, auditor, dispatcher and superintendent. He climbed in the ranks by hard work and was recognized as one of the best operating men in the middle west. His capacity for work seemed to have no limit and it is the conviction of his family and men who worked with him that his death was hastened by long hours of labor. It was his practice to arise early every morning and work through the day. He was often at his desk until late into the night. He was a popular official and held the respect of men working under his direction.

Born on Farm.

Mr. Clifford was born on a farm in the town of Scott, Sheboygan county, on Sept. 21, 1862. In 1876, when he was fourteen years of age, he went to work at Random Lake for the Milwaukee and Northern road, which later became the Chicago, Milwaukee and St. Paul road. He held the position of agent at every station between Cedarburg and Iron Mountain on the Milwaukee road. At more than one point his depot and office was a box car. His duties required him to perform all kinds of service in those pioneer days of railroading. While working in 1880 in Ledgeville, a station near Greenleaf, his pay was so small that he asked for a vacation to earn enough money to buy a suit of clothes. The superior officer saw to it that his pay was raised and that he was granted a vacation. For a time after starting at Random Lake, Mr. Clifford went west, then he returned and served as agent at Hayton, Ledgeville, Hilbert, Chilton, Ellis Junction and other points. When the road built from Ellis to Iron Mountain, Mr. Clifford was in charge of the construction. In 1883 he was appointed traveling auditor for the Milwaukee line, then he worked as brakeman for the Wisconsin Central for a short time.

Became Superintendent in 1901.

Operation of trains was part of his work when the Milwaukee road was being built. In 1886 he became agent in Iron Mountain and was in charge of the terminal there. He remained there in charge of the ore business for a number of years. In 1901 he was appointed superintendent of the ore docks at Escanaba. The Milwaukee road built its own docks in Escanaba, ran tracks into Escanaba and placed Mr. Clifford in complete charge there. He was promoted to the office of superintendent of the Superior division of the road with headquarters at Green Bay, in October, 1913. At that time he retained control of the entire business of the Marquette and Menominee iron range.

Family Survives.

Mr. Clifford is survived by a widow, two sons, Dr. Paul M. Clifford of Detroit, Gerald F. Clifford, lawyer, of Green Bay; a daughter, Genevieve Clifford, of Green Bay; one brother, Daniel, of Escanaba, and two sisters, Mrs. Fred Bowser, of Sheboygan, and Mrs. Alice Foley of Fond du Lac.

The funeral of the late J.M. Clifford, brother of Mrs. Alice Foley of this city, whose death occurred at Green Bay Thursday, will be held Saturday at Green Bay.

Communicated


Wednesday, Jan. 5, at 10:30 P.M., the death angel came to the home of Edward Cummings and called him to the Better land, leaving many sad hearts to mourn the seemingly untimely death. Edward Cummings was born in the town of Osceola, Fond Du Lac county June 29, 1882.

There he grew to manhood and by his sterling qualities and genial kindly disposition made hosts of friends.

On Oct. 4, 1905, he was married to Margaret Furgeson two children were born to them, John Francis and Lucille. The dread disease pneumonia which was to cause his death attacked him. All that medical skill and loving hands could do was done for him but proved to no avail. His happy faculty of always looking on the bright side stood by him till the end, making him a patient, uncomplaining sufferer.

The great esteem in which he was held by the community was shown by the large company who gathered at the Catholic church in Dundee, Saturday Jan. 8, 1910, to pay their last tribute to his memory. High Mass was read by Rev. Father Haeusler and choir of Osceola. The remains were laid to rest in the adjoining cemetery beside his infant son John Francis.

The pall bearers were Messrs. John and William Mangan, John and Carl Gahagan, James Murray and James Reilly, of Mitchell {Sheboygan county}. The funeral was in charge of Gilboy and Senn. He is survived by his wife and little daughter, father and mother Mr. and Mrs. Owen Cummings of Dundee, one sister, Mrs. W.T. Armstrong of Sheboygan and one brother, John of Milwaukee. A devoted husband, loving father and son, helpful neighbor and worthy citizen, he will be sadly missed and the sympathy of the community is extended to the bereaved family.

Calm and peaceable in his coffin
Lies our Edward now at rest
To rise upon some fairer shore
Hands clasped meekly o'er his breast.
Now for him all cures are ended;
Pains and sufferings all are o'er;
But his spirit being immortal,
Lives on yonder shining shore.
Once he was a joyous youth
Happy hearted, blithe and gay,
Ere that dread disease pneumonia
Ebbed the tide of life away.
But for him death had no terror
And the grave had lost its gloom,
For he knew his body only
Would slumber in that silent tomb.
But we sadly miss thee Edward;
Miss thee more than tongues can tell,
O, tis hard to lose our loved ones
But God doeth all things well.
And we hope again to join thee,
When life's pilgrimage is o'er;
Safe with him the realms of glory,
Where death and parting are no more.

Mrs. Jerry Connors


Margaret, the wife of Jerry Connors, died at the family home one mile north of this village, on Sunday, January 31, at the age of 42 years. Mrs. Connors was the oldest daughter of Richard Breen and is survived by her husband and six children; James, Harold, Frederick, Michael, Florence and Mae. Vain is any attempt to measure the loss of a mother to her children. Outside of heaven there is no love like mother love, but we have the beautiful assurance that it still lives, to guide, support and form the lives and characters of the motherless left behind. We may think of her awaiting them in that better land, in one of the "palaces of ivory, its windows crystal clear" of which old Bonar sang.

Mrs. Connors was a christian woman of the noblest type. Her life was devoted to her family and her church. She was an ardent worker in the Ladies Sadality {sic} of St. John's Catholic church {Sheboygan county} of which she was a member. Besides the immediate family Mrs. Connors is survived by three sisters Mary Breen, Mrs. John Mullarky, of this town, and Mrs. McDonovon, of Throop. One brother, Michael W. Breen also mourns the loss of a loving sister.

The funeral service was held at St. John's Catholic church on Wednesday, February 3, Rev. J.J. Cosgrove officiating. Interment was made in the St. Joseph's cemetery at Weedsport.

Thomas Cain, Sr., True County Pioneer Dies

Thomas Cain, Sr., one of the true pioneers of Sheboygan county, died at the home of his daughter, Mrs. Owen Minch, at Sheboygan Falls at 10 o’clock Sunday evening from heart trouble, at the age of 74 years.

For the past several months he had been in failing health, heart trouble developing, and for a time he was at the Plymouth hospital. Later he expressed a desire to be taken to the home of his daughter, Mrs. Minch, in Sheboygan Falls, and here he ended his earthly labors.

Mr. Cain was born in the town of Rhine October 31, 1851, and when ten years of age the family moved to the town of Russell and at the age of 25 years he was married to Miss Margaret Gannon and they took up their residence on a farm in the town of Greenbush. He was a most successful farmer, and acquired large land holdings, attesting to his worth as a tiller of the soil. Ten years ago he retired from active labor, his son, Thomas Cain, Jr., taking over the farm. He built a home in Glenbeulah and resided there, but the call of the farm always appealed and until the last year he spent much of his time out amid the scenes where he had labored so many years.

He was married to Miss Margaret Gannon, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Patrick Gannon, Sr., South Prairie, on April 30, 1876. Of six children born to them, all are living except Jennie. The others are George Cain of the town of Greenbush, Mrs. Own Minch of Sheboygan Falls, John Cain of the town of Greenbush, Thomas of the town of Greenbush, and Philip of Sheboygan Falls. There are two brothers, John of Kiel and William of the town of Russell, and four sisters, Mrs. B.H. McCabe of Fond du Lac, Mrs. M.L. Goggins of Chilton, Mrs. Joseph Reed of Spring Green, and Mrs. J.B. Huberty of Fond du Lac. Eight grandchildren also are among the survivors. Mrs. Cain died July 3, 1912.

To know “Tommy” Cain, as he was familiarly called among his associates, was a pleasure. He had a pleasing personality and a friendly greeting for everyone. He was the kind of a man that helped make up the sturdy pioneer class.

The funeral will be held at 9 a.m. Wednesday from the home of Mr. and Mrs. Minch and at 10 a.m. from St. Fridolin’s Catholic church at Glenbeulah. Burial will be in the Greenbush cemetery. Father Sippel will officiate.

Died Of Cholera, on Thursday, the 21st, ult. at Sheboygan Falls, William II. Cole, aged 31 years.

The following resolutions were unanimously adopted by Fidelity Lodge, No. 34, I.O.O.F.

Whereas, it has pleased the Supreme Ruler of the Universe, to remove from us, by death, our beloved Brother, Past Grand, Wm. II Cole, it is fitting at this time, that the Lodge should express its deep sense of the loss our Order has sustained.

Without entering into an extended eulogy upon the services or character of him, whose loss we are now called upon mourn, we think that services such as Past Grand Cole has performed, cannot easily be forgotten by his associates.

It was not in the Lodge Room alone that the excellence of his character was exhibited.

He was a firm friend, and agreeable companion, while his engaging manners, and kindness of heart, failed not to endear him to all who had the happiness to know him. Therefore:

Resolved, That we as Odd Fellows, sincerely sympathise with the family and friends of our deceased brother; and while we mingle our regrets with theirs, we will honor his character, and memory.

Resolved, That in token of respect for the memory of the decased, the charter of this Lodge be shrouded in black, and the usual badge of mourning worn by each officer and member for 30 days.

Resolved, That, to the grief stricken Widow, we extend our warmest sympathy in this her heart rending affliction; believing that in the Order to which her departed husband was so devotedly attached, she will ever find sympathy and aid.

Sheboygan Falls, July 26, 1854 - {Evergreen City Times}

Resolved, That a copy of these Resolutions accompanied by our best wishes for her future welfare, be presented to the widow, under seal of the Lodge, and another for publication to the Evergreen City Times.

Tramp Dies At Hospital

Matt Campbell the tramp who was sent up to the county jail from Plymouth and who has been a character around police courts in Wisconsin for years, died this morning at St. Nicholas hospital, to which place he was taken a few days ago. Death was due to dropsy and Brights disease, from which he had been a sufferer for some little time. Campbell was a man about 70 years of age and had tramped all over the country.

Laid to Rest in Wildwood


Today the last sad rites were performed over the remains of Matthew Campbell, at one time foreman of the Richardson Shoe Co. of Menominee and the remains were laid to rest in Wildwood cemetery, a daughter and son-in-law, Mr. and Mrs. O.E. Virum of Grand Rapids being in attendance. When Mr. Campbell died at the hospital several days ago, little was known as to his former life, but information came to the daughter of the death of her father in Sheboygan and she sent word asking that his burial be withheld until her arrival here. The papers of Sheboygan did an injustice when they referred to Mr. Campbell as a tramp. While for a time he had been traveling about from place to place, it is evident that his wandering life was due to an injury received at the base of his brain by a fall on the ice in Menominee. When he was brought here the county officials furnished information upon which the articles were based and it seems this was misleading and did an injustice to not only the decedent but members of his family. After the injury and his leaving Menominee Mrs. Virum received letters from her father until a few months ago when she lost track of him, no doubt the time he was taken ill. The services which were held this afternoon at Wildwood cemetery were in charge of Rev. Nemitz pastor of the Methodist church, and all of the funeral expenses were paid by his daughter. While in the city Mr. and Mrs. Virum are guests of B.C. Meyers, Ontario Ave.
