6-Year-Old Boy Is Victim Of Drowning

A 6-year-old boy drowned in the Sheboygan River late Monday afternoon when he slipped from a boat landing pier in Kiwanis Park.

The body of William Robert Heinemann, son of Mr. and Mrs. Arthur F. Heinemann Jr., 1720-A Wisconsin Ave., was recovered by coast guardsmen at 7:15 p.m.

The Heinemann boy and two companions, Allan and Howard Sprengle of 1111-A N. 16th St., were playing on the pier when Billy lost his balance and fell off the dock shortly before 5:30 o'clock.

Attempted Rescue

An unidentified 14-year-old boy dove into the water in a rescue attempt, but the child disappeared beneath the surface and the body was swept north by a swift current before settling to the bottom.

Police arrived at the scene minutes later.

Four rowboats - two manned by police officers, one by coast guardsmen, and another by a private boat owner - dragged the river with grappling equipment for almost an hour and a half.

Coast guardsmen used grappling hooks to pull the body from 10 feet of water in a treacherous spot 30 feet north of the pier and about 20 feet offshore.

Resuscitation efforts by a fire department squad were unsuccessful. Firemen applied artificial respiration at the scene for 20 minutes after the body was brought ashore.

Second of Season

It was the second drowning fatality of the season in Sheboygan County.

Billy Heinemann was born in Sheboygan Jan. 21, 1947. He was a pupil in the junior kindergarten at Jefferson School during the past school year.

Survivors, in addition to the parents, are a 20-months-old sister, Betty; the paternal grandfather, Arthur Heinemann Sr., and the maternal grandmother, Mrs. Florence Bruss, all of Sheboygan.

Funeral services will be held at 3 p.m. Thursday at the Ballhorn Funeral Chapels with the Rev. E.T. Schmidtke, assistant pastor of Immanuel Lutheran Church, officiating. Burial will be in Lutheran Cemetery.

The body will lie in state at the funeral chapels after noon Wednesday.

Rev. John George Holzapfel, a retired minister of the Evangelical church, died suddenly at his home near the fairgrounds on Wednesday, June 24, at the age of 70 years.

It is supposed that his death was due to a stroke of paralysis.

Four years later he was married to Miss Wilhelmina Scholl of Ada, Wis. {at St. John church, Herman Twp., on Oct. 22, 1871}. They resided at Mosel for 25 years.

Mrs. John Holzapfel Passed Away Dec. 12

Wilhelmina Scholl Holzapfel was born on Oct. 21, 1853, in Town Rhine, Sheboygan county Wisconsin, {a daughter of Christian and Jacobine Becker Scholl}, and has been a citizen of the United States all of her 96 years. She attended the schools of that section and, at the age of 18, in 1871, she was united in marriage with Rev. John Holzapfel. Ten children were born to this union, five of whom survive. After the marriage, the couple lived at Mosel, Wis., for 24 years. At that time Rev. Holzapfel received a call from Ackerville where the family resided for three years. In 1897 the Holzapfel family came to Tomah, where Rev. Holzapfel served as pastor of the Evangelical church until 1902. Here the deceased spent the remainder of her life, 52 years. During those 52 years the deceased lived in the same home where she passed away on Monday, Dec. 12, 1949. For about 12 years she had been a devoted member of St. Paul’s Lutheran church here, always keenly interested in the congregation, the pastor, and the welfare of the church in general.

Mike Petrie shared this information

Rev. Father Michael Haider, of the Catholic Church of this city, passed away at 11 o'clock Thursday night, at the age of 64 years. His illness, the result of a fall one year ago, has been of about three months duration, incapacitating him for the doing of his pastoral duties, and for some weeks confining him to his bed. He suffered greatly during much of the time, but bore his sufferings with serene courage and fortitude, his thoughts seeming to rest more on the welfare of his large church and congregation than upon himself.

Mr. Haider came to Sheboygan twenty-four years ago, direct from the province of Tyrol, in Germany, and has accomplished a work here in harmonizing discordant elements in the interests under his charge, in building up a large church membership, and erecting one of the largest and most substantial stone church edifices in the west, that few men could have done. He was a man of happy disposition, made friends of all with whom he came in contact, and had the fullest confidence and filial regard of his parishioners. Coming here at the beginning of the war of the rebellion, he warmly sympathized with the Union cause, and the government in its effort to maintain its integrity. The deceased had no relatives in this country, but two sisters are living in Europe. To each of them he left a portion of his property, and the residue to his church. The funeral services will be held at the church at 11 o'clock Monday forenoon.

Sheboygan County News - Wednesday - February 25, 1885 - p.1 - c.2

The Rev. Father Michael Haider of the Catholic Church of this city died at the age of 64 years, Thursday night Feb. 19th, 1885, of inflammation of the bowels. He held his last service at the church Nov. 20th, last, after which time he was confined to the house and bed until death. He suffered severely at times during his sickness, but so devoted was his love for the people of his church that his mind was upon them almost constantly, seeming to trouble him more than his own welfare.

Rev. Father Haider was born Sept. 9th, 1820 at Absem Tyrol, Austria. He studied at Hall, Innsbruck and Brixon Tyrol, and was ordained at Brixon Tyrol in 1845. He served in 1848 as Chaplain in the army during the war between Austria and Italy, and came to America in 1850, being first stationed at East Troy, Jefferson and Madison, until 1862 when he came to Sheboygan where he succeeded the Rev. F. Schraudenbach. His labors during the past twenty-two years in the interests of the church here have met with the most fruitful results. He was the means of swelling the congregation threefold or more, and building one of the largest and most substantial church edifices in the west. While most men would have failed in so great an undertaking, his remarkable perseverance, coupled with the full confidence of his congregation among whom he had wrought the fullest degree of harmony, enabled him to carry out his project, and now, the massive stone church, with its twin spires reaching heavenward, stands, a monument to his memory. In brief, Father Haider was a true gentleman in the broadest sense of the word, dearly loved by his church people, strongly admired and highly esteemed by all who knew him. His body lay in state in the old church, where numerous choice floral tributes were deposited by admiring friends, and hundreds of people visited the place from Friday morning until burial day.

The funeral took place Monday and was attended by friends from all parts of the county and the following clergymen from away:

Rt. Rev. Monsignor L. Batz, V.G., Milwaukee,
Rev. A.P.M. Abbellen, Notre Dame, Milwaukee,
Rev. Anselm Sautner, O.S.B., Belgium,

Shortly after 10 o'clock, a procession was formed under the direction of Father Matthew, O.M.C., at the frame church and marched in the following order to the stone edifice, where the funeral service was conducted:

School Children, 360,
St. John's Young Men's Society, 50,
Young Lady's Society, 78 {each bearing bouquet of flowers and candles},
Male Choir {with badges}, 28,
Clergymen Bearing Corpse {and singing Miserere},
St. Boniface Society, 125,
Lady's Society, 115.

At the church the corpse was placed before the Altar and the clergy offered prayer, the officium. Rev. L. Batz then celebrated the requiem, assisted by Rev. J. Rainer, Rev. Math. M. Gerend, and Rev. T.B. Meyer, after which, Rev. Batz delivered a sermon in German and Rev. Thill in English. The blessing of the corpse followed and the procession again formed and proceeded to the cemetery, about a mile and a half distant, where the final ceremony was conducted by Rev. Math. H. Gerend, the male choir singing an appropriate air. The church contained 2,000 people during the service and it is estimated that about 2,000 attended the funeral, notwithstanding the roads were in poor condition. There were twenty-two clergymen present and had the funeral been a day later, there would have been as many more.

Deceased, who was of very pious Catholic parents, leaves no relatives in this country but three sisters and one brother survive him and reside in Brixon Tyrol, Austria. It is not yet known whom Archbishop Heiss will appoint as Father Haider's successor, but until an appointment is made the Capuchins will conduct the services.

The trustees of the congregation desire to extend their sincere thanks to the community in general for the kind sympathy manifested.

Plymouth Reporter, Feb. 26, 1885, p. 5, c. 3 & 4. The intelligence of the demise of Rev. Michael Haider, which occurred, Thursday evening, spread a pall of gloom over the large Catholic Congregation of Sheboygan. During the long illness extending over a period of three months, the patience and fortitude with which he bore his great suffering were remarkable, and nearly until his voice ceased forever, the numerous friendly visitors were received in the same cheerful loving manner that was inherent with him. When the last moments of earth came he directed to the weeping friends at his bedside, the last requests relating to the final sad rites. Friday, the remains were place in the school building adjoining the priest's residence, remaining there until conveyed to the large church, and during the interval, thousands of people visited the apartment. Monday, the day chosen for the funeral obsequies, many of the leading factories closed and the whole city was in mourning. At the old church a long procession formed, consisting of school pupils, various societies and nineteen visiting clergymen, robed in mourning and chanting hymns for the soul gone on before. When the doors of the great stone cathedral were opened, the vast multitude occupied every available niche, and hundreds were unable to gain admission. The beautiful and impressive ceremonies will ever be remembered by those present. During the service everyone in the congregation was visibly affected. The Rev. Bishop Baats, assistant to Archbishop Heiss, delivered an eloquent discourse in the German language, followed by the pastor of St. Mary's Milwaukee, in English. During the time the sermons were spoken many eyes were dimmed with tears. At the conclusion of the mass, the bells in the tower signaled the formation of the procession, which was one of the largest ever formed in the state. The casket was borne from the hearse to the grave near the centre of the cemetery, by the priests chanting the litany for the dead. The choir joined with solemn hymns, the voices blending in sweet, low tones, amid which one of Christ's most earnest disciples, was lowered to rest. Father Haider was born in the romantic Tyrol district of Germany, sixty-four years ago. He assumed charge of the church here nearly twenty-three years ago, and during the period his history was closely allied to the parish. The school building, the one recently completed, the massive church edifice with the interior decorations - in short, all of the great improvements were inaugurated and completed by him and the sincere respect of all citizens of all denominations was tendered him, throughout his existence. But by those who knew the great-souled priest, who were comforted by his consoling words in the hours of distress and affliction, he will ever be held in remembrance.

Funeral of Rev. Haider


The funeral services and burial of Father Michael Haider took place at the Catholic Church on Monday forenoon, as we last week announced that it would. The body had lain in state environed with elegant symbolic floral tributes, since Friday forenoon, in the auditorium of the old church building, where it was visited by many hundreds of people who knew, respected and loved him in life, and now cherished and revered his memory. The rich burial casket nearby was almost embowered in choice flowers, and on a silver plate upon the cover was engraved the following inscription:

Rev. Michael Haider, natus die 9. Sept. 1820; ad Sacerdotium promotus 1845; Congregatione Sheboygan donatus 1862 mense Maji; ejusdemque Congregationis Pastor defunctus est die 19. Febr., sepultusque die 23. Febr. 1885. R.I.P.

Early in the morning the people began to arrive from adjoining towns to attend the funeral, until the number came to be very large. On the 9:55 Lake Shore express train from Milwaukee, there came a large delegation of priests and church officials from other portions of the state to assist in the performance of the burial rites. Among those present were:

Right. Rev. Monsignor L. Batz, V.G., Milwaukee,
Rev. A.P.M. Abbellen, Notre Dame, Milwaukee,
Rev Anselm Sautner, O.S.B., Belgium,
Rev. H. Reinhardt, St. Francis Seminary.
Prof. Jos. Rainer, St. Francis Seminary,
Rev. Aloys Zitterl, Madison,
Rev. John Friedl, Saukville,
Rev. M. Heigl, Franklin, Milwaukee Co.,
Rev. H. Wilimes, Port Washington,
Rev. A.J. Decker, Milwaukee,
Rev. W.J. Peil, Manitowoc,
Rev. P.J. Stupfel, Newberg,
Rev. Philip Bogt, Granville,
Rev. H. Heilstern, St. Wendel,
Rev. Geo. Fessler, Silver Lake,
Rev. Wm. Franz, Holy Cross,
Rev. Math. M. Gerend, Westport,
Rev. T.B. Meyer, Wilson,
Rev. A Schleyer, St. Anna,
Rev. Smith, Meeme,
Rev. Matthew Holzmueller, O.M.C., Milwaukee.
Rev. Dominick Thill, Milwaukee.

The procession was formed at the old church, but it was nearly 11 o'clock before it started for the large stone church where the services were had. The procession contained nearly one thousand persons in the following order:

Children of the Catholic School,
St. John's Young Men's Society,
Young Ladies' Society,
{Each with a bouquet and candle in hand.},
Male choir with badges,
Clergymen in Robes singing Miserere and DeProfundis,
Clergymen in robes bearing Casket,
Men's St. Boniface Society,
Old Ladies' Society.

It was supposed that not near all present would be able to get inside the church, the doors of which were not opened until the procession arrived and was ready to enter, it being first admitted. But it proved differently, and all who desired to got inside, though scores had to stand throughout the services, there being about 2000 persons in the building.

Monsignor Batz was the leading official, and began the services by offering with the clergy the prayer for the dead, the officium. He then celebrated the requiem assisted by Rev. J. Rainer as Deacon, Rev. M.M. Gerend as Sub Deacon, and Rev. T.B. Meyer as Master of Ceremonies. The singing portion of the services was excellently given by the Male Choir in the gallery, with accompaniment from the organ. A brief address in German was given by Vicar General Batz, followed by one in English by Rev. Father Thill, in which the good works and merits of the deceased and the spirit in which he labored were set forth as worthy of veneration and imitation.

About 1 o'clock the procession was formed and proceeded to the Catholic cemetery, over a mile distant, where all of earth of the deceased was laid away for final rest, as he desired, in the midst of those of his congregation who have gone before.

It is reported that Rev. Dominick Thill, of Milwaukee, is to be Father Haider's successor, although we are not advised that the appointment has been actually made.

Widely Known Editor of German Paper Dies at Memorial Hospital


Oscar F. Huhn, editor of The Sheboygan Amerika, Sheboygan German language newspaper, for the past thirty-two years, died at Sheboygan Memorial hospital at 10:10 a.m., Sunday.

He had been in ill health during the past several years, but his condition became critical last week when he submitted to an operation.

With his passing, Sheboygan county loses one of its most valued citizens, one of the most scholarly German language newspaper editors in the state, one of the most loyal and patriotic Americans of this community, a man who began his public services as a youth, and continued to do so until the time of his illness. The entire community will be shocked to learn of the death of this widely known and greatly revered gentleman.

Born in Centerville

Mr. Huhn was born in the town of Centerville, Manitowoc county, on October 2, 1863, the son of Ferdinand and Henrietta Mueller Huhn. His father was one of the German pioneers, who immigrated to this country with his father in 1848. He was one of nine children in the Huhn family.

He attended the rural school in the vicinity of his home, after which in 1879, he entered the Oshkosh Normal school. He earned his way through school by teaching a rural school at Nenning's Corner. In 1882, he completed his normal training and was graduated.

School Principal

After his graduation from the state normal, Mr. Huhn obtained a position as a teacher in the Horace Mann school. Later, he was made principal of the Horace Mann school, and held that position for five years.

Mr. Huhn was engaged in various clerical capacities during his life. After resigning as principal of the Horace Mann school, he was appointed as assistant journal clerk of the state legislature, which position he held two years. Then he was elected city clerk of Sheboygan, serving in that capacity for eight years. In 1901, he accepted a position as editor of the Sheboygan Amerika, and he held that position continuously up to the time of his death.

When Mr. Huhn became ill recently, Walter Knippel, formerly on the staff of the Milwaukee Herold, came here and has performed Mr. Huhn's editorial duties since.

Served County

Mr. Huhn served the county of Sheboygan for several years as a member of the county normal school board, of which he was chairman, and as assistant county clerk during the sessions of the county boards for many years. His duties in the latter capacity were to read the various resolutions, bills and other material brought before the board, and to advise the board on methods of procedure.

A progressive politically, Mr. Huhn was always an influential factor in the politics of this community. He was a close friend and ardent admirer of the late Senator Robert M. La Follette.

Mr. Huhn was an honorary member of the Sheboygan Gymnastic society, a member of the North Side Improvement association, and other organizations.

Married in 1889

On December 24, 1889, Mr. Huhn and Miss Ottilia Abele were married. They had one child, who died twelve years ago. His immediate survivors are: Mrs. Huhn, five sisters, Mrs. William Wagner of Haven, Mrs. William Belitz of the town of Manitowoc, Mrs. Theodore Frohme of Wauwautosa, Miss Louise Huhn of Chicago, Mrs. Lueloff of Milwaukee, and two brothers, Henry Huhn of Manitowoc, and August Huhn of Great Falls, Montana.

Kills Self But With Effort

Fond du Lac WI, Nov. 26. - Despite four gashes in her throat, two ounces of carbolic acid, six sleeping potions and a bottle of cough medicine, Mrs. Marie Hageman's frantic efforts at self-destruction failed to prove fatal immediately and she lingered from Tuesday morning until the afternoon of Thanksgiving day before she finally succumbed. Mrs. Hageman was 54 years of age and the mother of six sons and six daughters. Her husband is Carl Hageman, a farmer of this county. For some time her family noticed peculiar actions at times on the part of the woman, but they were given only passing comment.
