Ray G. Frosch County Stove Pioneer, Dies

Grimms - Ray G. Frosch, veteran hardware and automobile dealer and the first in Wisconsin to introduce oil and gas burning stoves in the rural area, died at his home in this village Thursday night. He was 80.

Funeral services will be at 2 p.m. Monday at St. John St. James Lutheran Church, Reedsville. The Rev. John Wendland will officiate and burial will be in Evergreen Cemetery, Manitowoc.

Born April 18, 1877, at Wayside, Brown County, son of the late Frank and Elizabeth Beattie Frosch, he began his business enterprise several years before the turn of the century and a year before he married Emma Rader at Sheboygan Falls June 7, 1899.

Clerk Of Court F. E. Fritsch Passes Away Early Today After Brief Illness Of Only A Week

F. E. Fritsch, 38, well known clerk of court for the past three years, passed away at 4:20 a. m. today at his home at 821 High avenue, after a week's illness.

As clerk of the circuit court for three years, clerk of town Wilson for five years and chairman of that town for four years, Mr. Fritsch was a public official who had a wide circle of friends throughout the county, and his sudden illness and death will be a severe shock to the many that knew him.

Mr. Fritsch was particularly adapted to the work of a public servant, and he was recognized as one of the most efficient officers the county has ever had. He was at his duties early every morning, and frequently worked late into the night during circuit court and naturalization periods, in order that his work might be done efficiently.

Cited For Efficiency

During his term of office, Mr. Fritsch handled some of the biggest lists of court cases in the history of the county, and he has the distinction of being especially cited by a circuit judge for his accuracy in making out court papers.

It was during the Pooler trial that his merit was particularly praised. In addition to that, every government naturalization examiner complimented him on his work of preparing papers for naturalization hearing, as well as the dispatch with which he issued the citizenship certificates after admittance has been granted by the court.

Mr. Fritsch was born on January 1, 1886, in the town of Wilson, the son of the well known Mr. and Mrs. F. A. Fritsch who now reside at 821 High avenue. After attending the rural school in the town of Wilson for a number of years, Mr. Fritsch came to Sheboygan and was graduated from the eighth grade of the First ward school.

Attends Business College

Following graduation, he entered the Sheboygan Business College and had training which particularly fitted him for his later work as a public official. He completed a regular commercial course and a course in shorthand and typewriting. The commercial course included the subject of law which was of great assistance to him later, and the shorthand and typewriting was valuable in the routine of the clerk of court's duties.

It was on May 20, 1911, that Mr. Fritsch was married to Miss Mary Sebald, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Richard Sebald, town of Lima. At that time Mr. Fritsch was clerk of the town of Wilson, a position which he held for five years, after which he was town chairman for four years.

During his last term as town clerk, Mr. Fritsch was elected to the office of clerk of the circuit court in November, 1920, and he assumed his duties as clerk in January, 1921. He had resigned as town clerk when nominated for the clerk of court office.

Head of Insurance Company

While in the town of Wilson, Mr. Fritsch was also president and director of the Town of Wilson Mutual Fire Insurance company. As a candidate for clerk of court, Mr. Fritsch has always received large majorities in the elections, which indicated his popularity throughout the county.

Deceased is survived by his wife and a daughter Audrey, 11, his parents, Mr. and Mrs. F. A. Fritsch; three sisters, Mrs. Fred Gartmann of Hingham, Mrs. August Klewe, Sheboygan, and Mrs. Detlef Nath, town of Wilson; one brother, Alfred Fritsch, town of Wilson.

Funeral services at the home, 821 High avenue, will be private and will be held at 1:30 p. m. Wednesday. Church services will be held at 2 p. m. at Bethlehem Lutheran church, the Rev. William Wambsganss officiating. Burial will be made in Lutheran cemetery.

Cascade
He Sleeps in Peace
Death Comes to B. R. Ford as a Sweet Relief From His Long Suffering
Remains Interred Sunday Dec. 31

The community was universally depressed by the sad news of the demise of Bennie R. Ford who passed over the river to that better land on Wednesday morning Dec. 27, 1905 at 9:45 o'clock at his late home at Ontonagon, Michigan. The deceased was a highly respected young man of a most amiable disposition, and he was dearly beloved by his friends and relatives. He was the younger son of Mr. and Mrs. Frank Ford, who feel the loss of their son as deeply as only loving parents can. He has left us for a reason, but we rest in the assurance that our loss is his gain and that by and by we shall meet our loved one, never again to part.

Mr. Ford had been ill ten years or more with kidney trouble, but it was only for the last two weeks of his existence that his case became hopeless. During the last week of his illness his brother W.W. Ford and wife assisted Mrs. Ford in caring for him, and he received the most careful attention and nursing. He leaves a wife, parents, a brother, William, and sister Vernie.

B.R. Ford was born April 28, 1876 on a farm one-and-a-half miles northeast of Cascade in the house now owned by Selmer Ford. About ten years ago he began learning the jeweler's trade with D.P. Heath of Tomahawk, Wis. and a few years later he had a good business started in Cascade. Some four years ago on the advice of the businessmen of Ontonagon he located in that city where he prospered until he was forced by illness to relinquish his work. His marriage to Miss Alice McCann took place four years ago. The union proved an exceedingly happy one, their desires being mutual to increase each other's joys.

The remains reached Waldo from Ontonagon on the two-thirty train Saturday morning in care of Mrs. Ford and Mr. and Mrs. W.W. Ford. They were taken to the home of his parents, where they remained until Sunday afternoon at one o'clock when the funeral took place from the U.B. church at Cascade. The services were conducted by Rev. Warren, pastor if this church, assisted by Rev. Hood Muscoda, Wis. No attempt will be made to enumerate the many floral offerings. They were numerous and beautiful and of various designs. The hymns were beautifully rendered by Mrs. Lennoy, Miss Nettie Atkin, Bert Wierman and Miss Anna Wierman on organ. Pall bearers were Messrs. H.G. Ford, J.R. Clark, Alton Goodell, E.F. Clark, Harold Goodell, and Charles Ford, all cousins of the deceased.

Mr. and Mrs. P.K. Wheeler of Plymouth and Mrs. E.A. Bemis of Batavia, Mrs. Frank McCann of Sheboygan, and Messrs. George McCann of Nebraska, J.R. Clark of Milwaukee, Charles, Harold and Alton Goodell of DePere were the relatives present from without the town. The very large attendance at the funeral attest the esteem in which Mr. Ford was held by the citizens of this town. His remains rest in the pleasant cemetery of Winooski.

Another Citizen Gone

Saturday evening at his home in Lyndon and his bedside surrounded by a loving family and grief-stricken relatives witnessed the demise of Benjamin Ford, a genial and respected citizen and a pioneer resident of the town in which he lived.

The deceased, the second in age of the three brothers Caleb, Benjamin and Elisha, all sturdy and well-to-do citizens of Lyndon with adjoining farms and respected for all the attributes of true manliness and good citizenship, was born at Perry, Lake county, Ohio and was in the fifty fifth year of his age and had been a resident of the town and county for a period of over thirty years, and accordingly enjoyed an acquaintance throughout the county that was confined to no particular portion, and by all who bore his acquaintance was deservingly held in high esteem for his rare geniality, kindliness of disposition, and the integrity of purpose which characterized his life. Mr. Ford leaves a wife and five children to mourn his death. Of the older children are Mr. Frank Ford of the same town and Mrs. Charles Goodell of Waldo. Death ensued from a chronic form of diabetes, which had in many previous instances in the county of late years has baffled the physicians' skill.

The funeral services occurred from the residence yesterday morning at ten o'clock, the ministrations being by Rev. Mr. Jones of Waldo, the interment taking place at the Winooski cemetery. The almost impassable conditions of the roads, contributing to prevent general intelligence of the demise, as well as to keep away many who would otherwise have been present at the funeral rites, which, circumstances as they were, were still largely attended. Thus has passed away another of Sheboygan county's pioneers who are fast being gathered to the land of their fathers.

At times for the past few years she was almost at death's door with heart trouble, but she was able to rally and for the past few weeks the family and friends were greatly encouraged and hoped that she might be spared yet a long time to her devoted daughters and son and anxious friends. Mrs. Ford was a highly respected lady, a good neighbor and a kind and affectionate mother, always ready and willing to help her family or friends. Mrs. Lucy Pound had just arrived at her home in Montana after having a pleasant visit with her mother when the sad news went to her by wire that her mother has passed over the river. Deceased leaves two sisters, Mrs. Emma Abels of Ohio and Mrs. C.L. Calwell of Waldo, one brother, H.W. McMurphy of Waldo, two daughters and one son, Mrs. Lucy Pound of Montana and Miss Lucy and Harry Ford on the home farm and many friends to mourn her departure. The family has the sympathy of all in their great bereavement.

Mrs. Ford was born in Perry, Lake county, Ohio, Dec. 29th, 1824, united in marriage with Mr. Ford June 29th, 1848 and came to Wisconsin in 1852 and settled on the farm where she died. They shared the cares and toils of life over fifty years, when he was taken away. Funeral occurred at one o'clock Thursday afternoon at the family residence, Rev. Cody of Waldo officiating. Rev. Cody delivered a good sermon from Psalm, "The Lord is my Shepherd." The singing and music of the organ was nice. The casket was covered with beautiful floral offerings from kind hands. The remains were laid at rest beside her husband in the pleasant cemetery at Winooski. The funeral was largely attended and attested the esteem in which the deceased was held by our citizens. The pallbearers were Messrs. E. Hulee, L.C. Bartlett, C.B. Briggs, S.C. Wiggin, John Buelke and {G?} W. Clark.

Worker Electrocuted At Factory In Falls

A 20-year-old factory worker was electrocuted late Friday while he was operating a machine at the Bemis Manufacturing company at Sheboygan Falls.

The victim was Edward Fenner, son of Mr. and Mrs. George Fenner, 620 Pine Street, Sheboygan Falls.

Plant employees told Dr. James F. Hildebrand, Sheboygan county coroner, that they saw a flash of flame when Fenner reached up to pull a switch on the machine. Fenner fell to the floor after the flash.

Workmen rushed the victim to a nearby physician's office. A 20-minute effort to revive Fenner through artificial respiration and medical stimulants proved unsuccessful.

Dr. Hildebrand said the youth apparently died instantly.

F.K. Bemis, president of the firm, said that an investigation was being made today to determine the cause of the accident. It was the first fatal accident in the company's history.

Three fellow workmen -Roland Veenendaal, Sheboygan Falls, Ted Lueck of Batavia, and Ed Zimmermann, Plymouth - said there was a blinding flash when Fenner raised his arm to pull a handle on the machine. They were not hurt.

Born Oct. 29, 1929, at Sheboygan Falls, Mr. Fenner was confirmed at St. Paul's Lutheran church in 1943 and graduated from the Sheboygan Falls High school with the class of 1947.

After attending the Sheboygan Vocational school for a short time, he entered the employ of the Bemis Manufacturing company about two and a half years ago.

Survivors are his parents; two brothers, Carl and Marvin, and the paternal grandparents, Mr. and Mrs. William Fenner, Sr.

Funeral services will be held at 1:30 p.m. Monday at the A.E. Rauschert Funeral home and at 2 p.m. at St. Paul's Lutheran church in Sheboygan Falls. The Rev. Edward Albertin, pastor, will officiate, and burial will be in the Falls cemetery.

Deceased was seriously injured last Monday while taking a load of hay to Sheboygan. When about a mile from the city the wagon tipped over and he was thrown to the ground with considerable force sustaining a fractured skull and other severe bruises. He was at once taken to the St. Nicholas hospital in Sheboygan but medical skill and tender nursing was of no avail and he quietly passed away last Saturday night. He leaves a wife and seven children to whom we extend our sympathy. A more extended obituary notice will be given in next week's issue.

Death of Edward J. Fritsche


In the death of Edward Fritsche it may be truly said, that a good man is gone. Brief mention was made in last week's items that his death occurred on Saturday, Jan. 4th, and was due to a fractured skull and other injuries which he sustained by falling from a load of hay, while taking it to the city on Monday previous. He was at once taken to the St. Nicholas hospital at Sheboygan for treatment but in spite of all that medical skill and tender nursing could do he passed away quietly at 8 o'clock on Saturday evening, Jan. 4. Deceased was born in Germany 43 years ago and came to this country while still a small boy, being married to a Miss Lemeness in 1884 and has resided here since. He always possessed a sunny and cheerful disposition and was beloved by all who knew him. Thus a kind friend and good neighbor has been gathered to the beautiful home of the dead. He leaves to mourn his death a widow and family of seven children, also a brother Fred and a sister, Mrs. Val. Reyer, both of this place, besides a large circle of friends who feel the deepest sympathy for the bereaved ones.

Sheboygan Man Dies While Duck Hunting

The body of a Sheboygan hunter was found late Sunday afternoon in a swampy area off the Woodland Road, about six miles northwest of the city.

He was William D. Fenner, 39, of 815 Bell Ave., who had been duck hunting earlier in the day with his 16-year-old twin sons, ....

The boys told authorities they had last seen their father about 1 p.m.

Hunter Finds Body

His body was discovered about four hours later by Wallace Mitchell of 1633 N. 13th St., who was hunting just west of the Kenneth Boll farm in the Town of Sheboygan Falls.

Mr. Fenner was known to have suffered epileptic seizures in the past and was not in the best of health, investigating sheriff's deputies said, but the exact cause of his death was not determined.

Mr. Fenner was employed by the City of Sheboygan park department.

Mitchell, who was hunting in the swamp area with William E. Kaemmer of 1231 Huron Ave., told authorities he had downed a bird and was retrieving it when he found Fenner's body floating face down in about two feet of water at about 5 p.m.

Officer LeRoy Nennig of the sheriff's department donned waders and went to the scene along the Woodland Road at the north boundary of the Sheboygan County airport, about a mile west of Highway 32.

He found Fenner's shotgun, fully loaded and with the safety on, underneath the body. The body was removed from the area on a stretcher.

The Fenner twin brothers, who had been searching for their father since they had become separated from him, were nearby when the body was discovered.

It was the first Sheboygan County fatality of the waterfowl hunting season which opened Saturday.

A World War II veteran, Mr. Fenner had served in Japan. He was married on May 15, 1948, to Jeanette Millert at St. Luke's Lutheran Church in the Town of Sheboygan Falls.

Henry Franey Passed Away at a Hospital at Fond du Lac

Funeral was Held Yesterday

Henry, the son of Mr. and Mrs. Thomas Franey of this village, died very suddenly about seven o'clock Monday evening. For a number of years he had been troubled with a lung difficulty, and a few weeks ago while in Plymouth, he had a hemorrage. He went to the southern part of the state to consult with a physician who was an old friend. When he reached his friend's home, he found that he had gone to California. Mr Franey started for home but at West Bend was obliged to stop and call for medical aid. The medicine given him appeared to produce bad results. At Fond du Lac, a physician was summoned who feared that he could not counteract the effects of the medicine. He, however, had Mr. Franey taken to the hospital and sent for his father. When Mr. Franey, Sr. came back from there Monday, the physician told him that in 10 days his son would be able to come home. In fact, he was able to walk to the door with his father when the latter took his departure. Mr. Franey had been home but a few minutes when he received work that his son was dead.

Henry Franey would have been forty years old next September. He was born in Greenbush and had spent most of his life in this vicinity. For the last two years he had been making cheese in Eden and Greenbush. He was the only son of Mr. and Mrs. Thomas Franey and besides his parents he leaves 4 sisters. Mesdames E.C. Wehe, T.F. Volk, and W.W. Giffin of Plymouth and Mrs. Louis Wessendorf of Sheboygan Falls.

The funeral was held from the home in this village yesterday afternoon and was in charge of the Odd Fellows of which lodge he was a member. Interment was in the village cemetery. A delegation of Plymouth Odd Fellows was in attendance.
