Schaap of Sheboygan; Jerry, Nora, Clara, and Lucy at home, Julia a child, Mrs. L. Hand and Willie, the two older members of the family having preceded him in death.

The deceased was a kind and loving father, a good neighbor, and honest and upright citizen, and his kind disposition and temperate habits made him honored and respected by all who knew him. The funeral took place Tuesday morning at 10:30 o'clock at St. Patrick's Church of which deceased was a devout member.

A telegram has been received from Chicago announcing the death of Mrs. Sarah Lamb, widow of Michael Lamb, who was one of the early settlers in the town of Holland. Details regarding the cause of death are not available, but it is believed her death was due to old age.

Before his death Michael Lamb lived on a farm near Adell, and was one of the best known pioneers in that section of the county. Soon after her husbands demise, Mrs. Lamb came to this city where until three years ago she resided with her three unmarried daughters at 61S End court.

Sarah Lamb Obituary from Plymouth Reporter

Another early pioneer of the Township of Holland was called to her heavenly reward when the spirit Mrs. Sarah Lamb took it's flight to that beautiful beyond from which no wanderer e'er returns. The end came peacefully Wednesday Dec. 21 at her home in Chicago, her death being due to general debility. Deceased, whose maiden name was Sarah Needham, was born May 20, 1842 in Tipperary County, Ireland and at the age of 11 years emigrated to America and settled down in Chicago where she grew to womanhood. She was united in Marriage to Michael Lamb at St. Patrick's Church on May 4th, 1862 and came direct to Wisconsin and settled down in the Town of Holland where she remained until two years after the death of her husband when she moved to Sheboygan where she resided with her daughters until 1918 when she took up her residence in Chicago where she remained until she was claimed by the grim reaper. Death.

The remains arrived here Saturday evening and were conveyed to the home of her son, Frank Lamb, where the funeral took place at nine o'clock Monday morning at St. Patrick's Church. Rev.

Florence Lamb - 1914
Kay R. shared this information

{Can't read first line} the news was imparted Tuesday afternoon of the death of Mrs. Patrick Lamb residing a few miles from our village, her death having taken place at 2 o'clock. The decedent had given birth to a son on Wednesday of the week prior, following which she was taken with rheumatism, her condition growing worse daily to the end.

Before her marriage to Mr. Lamb on April 19, 1912, the decedent was Miss Florence O'Connor, having been born in the town of Mitchell {Sheboygan county} and she attained the age of 24 years. Besides the young husband and wee son, she leaves a daughter, her father and one brother Frank, the latter of Fond du Lac.

It is sad to think that she had been called from the home, which held out so much happiness to her and at a time when her motherly affection and attention is so indispensable, but the dear ones left behind realize that it is the decree of the Almighty and accept the great sorrow thrust upon them with the solace that it is well with her. She is gone from their sight! but because life and love are stronger than death, she is theirs still. She is still the mother of the dear little children, that were her own, and the companion still of him who mourns earth's greatest loss.

The funeral service was held from St. Patrick's church Friday morning, Rev. Hillenbrand officiating. Internment followed in the adjoining cemetery.

Thomas Lamb
Kay R. shared this information

Thomas Lamb, an old pioneer of the town of Holland passed away at the St. Nicholas hospital in Sheboygan, where he had made his home the past year. Mr. and Mrs. Lamb went to that institution a year ago to spend their remaining days, but only three months elapsed when Mrs. Lamb passed to the Great Beyond, which left the old gentleman in his utter loneliness and he mourned her departure very grievously, as for sixty years they had trodden life's pathway together and the final separation was very pathetic indeed.

At the age of twenty three years Mr. Lamb left the shore of the Emerald Isle to make his fortune and how well he succeeded is fully attested by the beautiful farm home he retired from about ten years ago, so from a temporal standpoint he accomplished his life's purpose and died full of years.

Mr. Lamb was born in Ireland in 1830 and twenty three years later came to America and settled in New York where two years later he was married in Syracuse to Miss May O'Connor and a year later came to Wisconsin and lived in Kenosha for a while. Fifty years ago they came to the town of Holland where they resided on his farm until ten years ago. He is survived by eleven children, James and Miles of Holland; Hugh Lamb, Mrs. John O'Reilly and Mrs. John Crosby of Milwaukee; George, Thomas and Mrs. John Moynihan of Sheboygan; Mrs. Matt. Spranger of Adell; Mrs. James O' Reilly of Cascade and Mrs. Michael Dunn of Holland. The late Jerry Lamb of this city was a brother of the deceased. He also leaves forty one grandchildren. The remains passed through this city from Sheboygan Saturday morning to Adell where the funeral took place Monday morning from the home of his daughter, Mrs. Matt. Spranger and at St. Patrick church, where services were held. Interment was made in St. Patrick's cemetery, Rev. F.J. Hillenbrand officiating.

Mr. Lamb was of a sturdy nature and of an industrious bent of mind, besides being a man of practical ideas, together with unflinching integrity, which qualities will enable most any man to succeed in life. He was loved and respected by his neighbors and friends for his kind {?} disposition. Condolence {Article cut off}.

Death in Railroad Accident

On Thursday, August 10, occurred the death of John Leonard in a railroad accident in Edmunton, Province of Alberta, Canada. At the time of his death he was employed by the Pacific Grand Trunk railroad having gone there from Ekalaka, Mont., about a month ago. He was struck by the fender of an engine and was not missed for some time. His lower limbs were injured and he lost so much blood, that when he was found and taken to a hospital, his life could not be saved, although everything was done for him that could possibly be done.

His mother was at once notified and the body was shipped to Plymouth {Sheboygan county}accompanied by a Brother Trainman as far as Winnepeg. T. H.

The funeral was held this morning from St. Michael's Catholic Church, Mitchell, and the Rev. Father Fischer officiated. The remains rest in the {Article cut off}.

Mitchell - September 20, 1908

It again becomes our painful duty to chronicle the death of another old pioneer of this locality, in the person of John Leonard, who departed this life at his home near Rathbun in the town of Greenbush on September 20, 1908, in the 69th year of his age strengthened by the sacraments of his church, and surrounded by his children, his wife and his grand children, peacefully and resignedly.

Mr. Leonard was born in Clare County, Ireland and came to America in 1860. He lived two years in New York, coming to Wisconsin and Fond du Lac in 1862, where he lived for 15 years. In 1866, he was married to Miss Ellen Doogan, at Fond du Lac. In 1877, with his family he moved onto the farm, on which he lived till the time of his death. To Mr. and Mrs. Leonard were born 12 children of whom 5 sons and 3 daughters survive. His wife and grand children also survive. Hid children are: John of South Dakota, George, Michaels{sic?}, Edward, Francis and Miss Anna, living at home and Mrs. Thos. Tierney and Mrs. Adolph Maritz of Milwaukee. All were at the bedside at the time of his death.

The funeral was held from our Lady of Angels church in Osceola on the 23rd inst. Requiem high mass was celebrated by Rev. Father Haeussler, who in his sermon paid high tribute to the christian character, and the moral worth of the deceased. Interment was made in the family lot in the adjoining cemetery. The pall bearers were Ed. Dooley, Gus. Cosgrove, Henry Herbert, Jas. Hanlon, Philip Gannon and John Baker.

The funeral cortege was the largest that approached the Osceola church in a long time, and the esteem in which he was held by his friends and neighbors was shown by the large number who gathered to pay their last tribute of respect to their departed friend.

Those from away who attended the funeral were: Mr. and Mrs. Donahue of Kaukauna, Mr. and Mrs. Edward Doogan, Mr. and Mrs. Salar, and Mr. and Mrs. McDonald of Antigo, Mr. and Mrs. Thos.

Mr. Leonard was one of those quiet, unobtrusive, modest, retiring, kindly men, who had to be intimately known to be fully appreciated. If his left hand extended a favor, the right was not to know it. He was a loving husband and indulgent father, as is attested by his splendid family of sons living at home in peace and happiness and by their industry and cooperation with their worthy father have built a splendid and luxurious home, where plenty reigns and hospitality the rule of the household.

He was a faithful member of his church and gave liberally for its support and lived strictly up to its teachings. He was the noblest work of God - an honest man. He died as he had lived, at peace with himself, at peace with all men, and at peace with his God, and he never allowed anything to interrupt that holy peace for he lived an exemplary christian life. He was a public spirited and loyal citizen of his adopted country and to a worthy cause he never refused his aid. His wife, his children and his friends have the sincere sympathy and condolence of the community in their great and irreparable loss. May his soul rest in peace.

George Lindsay Dies Sunday in Town Mitchell

Last Sunday morning George Lindsay, one of the old pioneers of the Town of Mitchell, laid down the burden of life after a protracted illness, which made him an invalid for the past few years. Being of a strong and rugged nature, he withstood the effects of his ailment a great deal longer than the ordinary would have, but like all mortals he succumbed to the fatal malady in the end.

A few days previous to his death, he was in an unconscious state but passed away without an apparent struggle when the end came.

Mr. Lindsay was born about seventy-five years ago in some one of the eastern states and came with his parents to the town of Mitchell {Sheboygan county} when a mere child. He participated in all the hardships and trials incident to the frontier life in those early days in Wisconsin. He was of a very humorous nature, and was the life of any social gathering at which he was present. Conscientious in all of his dealings with his fellow men, he never shirked a duty that was imposed upon him for the betterment of the community in which he lived, and his passing will be a reminder to those who knew him in his younger days of the admirable qualities which he so happily possessed.

He was married to Miss Agnes O'Connell about forty years ago, and several children were the result of the union, some of whom died at an early age. The remaining survivors are his widow, four daughters, Mr. James Nielling{sic} of Mitchell; Mrs. William Ninneman, also of Mitchell; Mrs. John Harkins and Mrs. Charles Ford of Milwaukee. One son, William at home, and one sister, Mrs. Michael Murray, also of Mitchell.

The funeral took place from the home on Wednesday morning with services at St. Michael's Catholic Church and interment in St. Michael's cemetery, Rev. David Regan officiating. To the bereaved relatives a host of sorrowing friends extend a heartfelt condolence.

Parnell Resident Dies

After having been ill for the past six months, John A. Lindsay, a worthy and highly respected pioneer resident of the town of Mitchell passed away on his farm near Parnell {Sheboygan county} on Monday. His condition has been precarious for some time past and the end was not unexpected, all of the children were with him when the end came.

Mr. Lindsay was a native of New York State having been born at Syracuse, N.Y., on May 5, 1850. When he was but four years of age his parents decided to move west and came to Wisconsin, settling in the town of Mitchell on a farm. He lived on the farm for many years, growing to manhood there. On January 14, 1863 he was united in marriage to Miss Marguerite O'Brien and taking his bride to the homestead of his parents, he followed farming until eleven years ago, when he moved to Parnell. He purchased the West Side Hotel at Parnell and conducted that hostelry for ten years. Honest to the last degree, his integrity never questioned, he builded{sic} a prosperous business there. He had a genial disposition, was of a kindly nature and generous. With the passing years he made many friends all of whom hold him in the highest esteem. His home life was ideal, the same spirit prevailing there as prevailed in business life and he was a kind father and a loving husband as those who knew him best will attest. A year ago, feeling that his health was failing, he moved to the farm which he had purchased some time previous in the hope of improving his condition. His constitution however was unable to combat the illness which was even then gaining a foothold and six months ago there began an illness from which he never recovered. His demise is a sad blow to the family and his passing will long be mourned by those who were closest to him. Besides his wife he is survived by five children, Mrs. John Manley, Pomona, Cal.; Miss Catherine, who lives at home; George of this city; Edward of Van Buren, California and John who lives at home; one brother, George, of Mitchell; one sister, Mrs. Clara{sic} Murray of Mitchell and nine grandchildren.

The funeral service was held yesterday, Rev. Hoog of Cascade being in charge. Funeral services were held in St. Michael's church in the town of Mitchell and the remains were laid to rest in the church cemetery.

Maurice Lindsay - 1906

Mitchell

The community was shocked Wednesday when the sad news of the death of Maurice Lindsay was heard. He was eighteen years of age, the youngest son of Mr. and Mrs. John Lindsay and has always lived here. Maurice was born here. He lived a Christian life. It was here he grew nearly to manhood, adored by his fond parents and brothers and sisters, loved by his companions and admired by his countless friends. Maurice was of a very sunny disposition and was the life of the home he left so desolate. This is really attested in the fact over 200 carriages followed the remains to the scene of his last resting place.

Conscious to the last fortified by his holy religion and knowing the end was near, he had no fear for himself only for the ones he left behind.

Grouped about his bedside when the end came were his parents, brothers and sisters.

His death at this time is an extremely sad one and the sympathy of all goes out to the family in their great sorrow. Since the beginning of Maurice's sickness he was a patient sufferer always looking on the bright side of life. Nothing was left undone by the fond parents sisters and brothers but to no avail, he was called to that better land where his trials and tribulations are ended.

Maurice leaves to mourn his untimely death his parents, four brothers George of Fond du Lac, Edward, of California, John and Robert at home, and two sisters, Mrs. John Manley of Milwaukee and Kathrine at home.

The funeral was held March 2nd from St. Michaels church at Mitchell {Sheboygan county}. High mass was celebrated by the Rev. B.J. Burke.

Six of Maurice's life long friends and cousins bore his remains to the grave. George Murphy, James Murry, Joseph Dewire, John Bowers, Joe and James Reilly, Jr. acted as pall bearers.

Those from out of town who attended the funeral were Mrs. J. O'Brien, Miss Anna O'Brien, John O'Brien Jr., Mrs. J. Manning of Fond du Lac, Jesse O'Brien, Oshkosh, John O'Brien of Greenbush, Kathrine Murphy of Kenosha, Wis.

Calm and peaceful in his coffin
Lies our Maurice now at rest
To rise upon some {?} shore
Hands clasped meekly o'er his breast.

Now for him all care has ended;
Pains and sufferings all are o'er;
But his spirit, bright, immortal,
Lives on yonder shining shore.

Once he was a joyous youth,
Happy hearted, blithe and gay,
Ere that dread disease consumed,
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 Maurice;
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 within the realms of glory,
Where death and partings are {no} more.

Florence Lindsay

Communicated

We are called upon this {?} chronicle the news of the {death of} Florence, the youngest dau{ghter of} Mr. and Mrs. John Lindsay, {at the age of ?} years, 2 months. Her death was caused by an accident which happened about a month ago. While carrying a lighted lamp through a hall way in which was an open trap door she fell through, setting fire to her clothing and badly burning her face, neck and arms. Since that time she has been under the doctor's care and has proved a very patient little sufferer, although considering the extent of her injuries, the amount of pain she had to endure was almost surprisingly small. Fond parents, sisters and brothers left nothing undone that might contribute to her comfort and happiness, and she was often visited and consoled by her beloved pastor. She expired very peacefully Friday evening surrounded by all the members of the family, of which there are a father, mother, two sisters and six brothers. Florence was a faithful, loving child, and will be sadly missed from the home and community. The funeral took place Monday with a requiem Mass by Father Burke. The attendance was unusually large, and many relatives from away were present. A beautiful white casket contained the remains which were borne away to their last resting place by her six brothers acting as pall bearers. T.F. Franey of Plymouth had charge of the funeral.

The curtain has been dropped, it would seem, at the beginning of the second act in a life's drama which was full of promise for a bright future. Robert Lindsay had passed his boyhood and was nicely launched on his duties and responsibilities of young manhood, when death dropped the curtain, leaving the dark side for those who are bereft and the bright lining for the soul departed. Death came near sunset on Tuesday, Jan. 30th, at the home of his sister, Mrs. John Manley, in Milwaukee and was due to typhoid pneumonia.

The remains were brought to Waldo, Wednesday morning and from there were taken to the home of his parents, Mr. and Mrs. John A. Lindsay, in Parnell. The funeral services will be held this morning from St. Michael's church, Rev. Father Fisher officiating. Surrounded by the scenes and associations of his boyhood he will find a last resting place in the cemetery at Mitchell.

Robert Lindsay was born July 8, 1885 in Mitchell, where most of the short span of his days was spent. He also worked for some time at the Central House and for the Davis Bros. Co., of this city. Later he found employment in Milwaukee, where he was overtaken by death. He was gifted by those qualities which not only make friends, but which gave promise of a bright career.

He leaves his parents, three brothers, Ed. W., Ventura, Cal.; George, Plymouth and John J. at home; two sisters, Mrs. John Manley, Milwaukee; Kathryn at home, and hosts of friends to mourn his loss.

He was a member of the Plymouth Hook and Ladder Company and the flag at the City has been lowered to half mast out of respect for his memory.

One of the largest funerals ever seen in Mitchell was that of Thomas Lindsay last Thursday; over two hundred carriages followed the remains to the church and cemetery and there were about one hundred mourners. But such might be expected for a model young man like Thomas, a man that interfered with no body's business but his own and one that had a pleasant word for everybody. The final summons came to him last Monday, Nov. 8 and the last rites were performed on Thursday, Nov. 12, by Rev. B.J. Burke in St. Michael's church. The pallbearers were as follows: Willie Murphy, Thomas Murphy, Edward McDonald, Patrick Conne{rs}, {Fra}ncis Heffling and George Boo{?}. The flower girls were Loretta Lindsay and Frances Murphy. A beautiful floral tribute graced the top of the lovely casket. T.F. Franey of Plymouth, conducted the funeral arrangements.

In Memory of Thomas Lindsay

The angel, Death, has come once more
To take one we shall sadly miss,
To plunge a home in deep despair,
To give a soul eternal bliss.

A summons we must all obey
Was brought by an angel of the Lord:
And a soldier in the cause of right
Has come to meet his just reward.

Could our gaze cross the river Death
And there behold the heavenly main,
"Twould cruel and most selfish seem
To wish our loved ones back again.

A young life budded, bloomed and died
If that were all 'twas sad indeed;
But we must hope beyond the grave
"Twas for our sake Christ's wound did bleed.

Then let our thoughts of death not be
A body laid beneath the sod,
But of a soul of sin devoid
Winging its flight with joy to God.

Our greatest comfort then should be
To know that loved ones gone before
A wait with joy our coming home
To rest in God forever more.

In Memory of John Lynch

Death, the relentless messenger, the implacable enemy of the human race, who has decreed the fate of every being that comes into the world, is always an unwelcome guest, particularly so it is, when the victim is a young man in the prime of life, with high prospects for the future in sight, the father of a family, the husband of a loving wife, the center of a large circle of near and dear friends and living in a beautiful home supplied with modern luxuries, the result of honest industry and sobriety. That such a man should be taken almost without warning, makes it particularly sad, and verifies the statement that the {?} signs of Providence are inscrutable and beyond the ken of human comprehension. Such were the thoughts of the writer as he gazed upon the dead body of his dear friend, John Lynch.

John Lynch was born in the town of Mitchell in 1864, which town was his continuous place of residence. He was a son of Hugh Lynch, one of the highly respected old pioneers of the town of Mitchell. His death occurred at his home on the evening of Aug. 26, of heart disease after a brief illness.

He was married to Miss Agatha Murphy of the town of Mitchell in 1896, who with an only daughter, Miss Maria, survives him. Three brothers and three sisters also survive as follows: Michael F. of Kansas City, Mo., James C. of Chicago, and Patrick, who lives at the home of the deceased, Mrs. Mary Allcox and Mrs. Hannah McBride of Cascade and Mrs. Ella Hannahan of St. Paul.

The funeral was held from St. Michael's church, Mitchell, on Monday, services by Rev. Father Fisher. The remains were laid at rest in the adjoining cemetery. The pall bearers were John and Pat Doherty, Ed Keyes, Jas. Cooney, John McLaughlin and Chas. Piper.

The funeral cortege was the largest that has approached Mitchell church in many years, there being 200 teams in line. All of his brothers and sisters with their families were present. All of the surrounding towns, Plymouth, Milwaukee, Chicago, Fond du Lac, Sheboygan and other places were largely represented, bearing silent testimony to the high esteem in which he was held in the community, Kiefer & Siemers had charge of the funeral.

Those who knew John Lynch through life will join with me in expressing the most ardent praise for the many estimable qualities of mind and heart he possessed. He was always a gentleman, honest in his dealings to the full extent of the word, faithful in all life's duties, considerate and kindly at all times and blessed with the spirit of true Christian charity, an affectionate father, a loving husband, a true friend, a devout and faithful member of the Catholic church, to whose teachings he strictly adhered in his home life as in his daily contact with the outside world. He was a modest {man} of a genial and charming dis{positio}n, to know him was to be{come} his friend.

{?}ot alone, by his death, does his {fam}ily and friends sustain a great {?} but the community at large {suf}fers, as he was a respected and {wor}thy citizen, a helpful, peaceable {nei}ghbor, a man without an enemy. {Hi}s wife and family, his brothers {and} sisters have the sincere sympa{thy} of the community in their great {irr}epairable loss.

Kiel Resident Is Killed In Crash With Gravel Train

Accident Occurs On Falls Road

Edward W. Lulloff Is Instantly Killed In Head-On Ciollision At Sheboygan Falls


Edward W. Lulloff, 25, of Kiel met instant death at 4:03 p.m. Monday when his Ford coach crashed into the front of an eastbound three-car gravel train on Highway 23 at Sheboygan Falls.

The accident occurred near Stop 13 where the Wisconsin Power and Light company's interurban line runs along the center of the highway.

Lulloff was traveling westward at 25 or 30 miles an hour, according to witnesses.

The impact of the heavy train loaded with many tons of sand and crushed stone completely smashed the front of the car and crushed the victim's head and chest. Broken glass at the point where the automobile was struck indicated that Motorman Otto Foerster, 1222 N. Twelfth street, brought the ponderous train to a stop within its own length of three cars. Theodore E. Uphoff, 936 Dillingham avenue, was the only other trainman with Foerster at the time of the crash.

Fred Albertin who witnessed the crash, and Chester Granger, who resides nearby, ran to the scene of the accident but found Lulloff dead. Dr. Adam Pfeiler of Sheboygan Falls was summoned and when his examination revealed there was no possibility of the victim being alive, Coroner C. N. Sonnenburg was called.

Had Sounded Whistle

The coroner's preliminary investigation disclosed that Motorman Foerster had sounded his whistle near the top of the long slope leading eastward and had expected the driver of the automobile to turn from the center of the highway to the right side.

"I saw the car coming toward us in the middle of the highway," Foerster said, "He turned out and then turned back. It was too late to avoid a collision but I stopped the train as quickly as it could be stopped on the down grade."

Mr. Albertin, who was standing on the highway within a block of the point where the crash occurred, said Lulloff was traveling about 24 miles an hour and was on the tracks. He said he heard the whistle of the train but did not see the driver turn his automobile from the center of the highway.

Mr. Granger did not see the actual crash but he did remember seeing the automobile traveling westward. He estimated its speed at 25 to 30 miles an hour.

Sheriff L.C. Tasche, who was taking a patient to the state hospital at Winnebago, came upon the scene of the accident shortly after it happened and he, with Motorcycle Officer Harlan Case, aided in conducting the preliminary investigation. Chief Ed. George of Sheboygan Falls commented upon the fact that Lulloff was driving "into the sun" but he could not be certain that the driver was blinded by the sun at the time of the accident. It was noticeable that motorists traveling westward along that highway within the next hour or more after the accident experienced difficulty in keeping a clear view ahead because of the sun's rays.

Coroner Sonnenburg ordered an inquest and a jury viewed the scene of the crash Monday evening. The jurors also viewed the body at the Robert H. Kroos Funeral Home where it was taken before its removal to Kiel.

Members of the coroner's jury are: Bernard Fessler, Edwin Matthewson, John Rawlings, William Thaek, Captain N.P. Peterson, and Theodore Van Handel. The inquest will be held at the city hall at 10 a.m. Thursday.

Born In St. Nazianz

Edward A. Lulloff was born in St. Nazianz, Oct. 12, 1905, the son of Mr. and Mrs. Fred Lulloff. He attended the St. Nazianz parochial school and the Sheboygan Business college. Nine years ago the family moved to Kiel, where since Edward left business college, he was employed at the Lulloff & Son Hardware Co., operated by his grandfather, Herman Lulloff, and his uncle, William Lulloff. He is survived by his parents, four sisters, Misses Alexia and Eleanor of Sheboygan, Miss Marie and Antonia of Santa Monica, Calif., and three brothers, Alex, Alphonse and Frederick, all at home in Kiel.

Fellow employees in the hardware and furniture store in Kiel said he left Kiel at 2 p.m., Monday, stating that he was going to Sheboygan Falls and Howards Grove, on business. He had apparently completed his business without delay, and was on his way back home when the tragedy occurred.

Funeral services will be held at the home, 628 N. Third street, Kiel, at 9:30 a.m., Thursday, and at 10 a.m. at SS. Peter and Paul church in Kiel. The Rev. August Roden will officiate. Burial will be made in the Kiel cemetery.

Herman Lulloff Of Kiel Is Called To Rest Here Today

Herman Lulloff, 91, retired business man of Kiel, died at 11:30 o'clock this morning at St. Nicholas hospital, where he had been a patient for the past six months.

The well-known man was born in Town Mosel, Sheboygan county, on March 1, 1845, and was the son of the late Mr. and Mrs. Ludwig Lulloff. When their child was two years old, the parents located on a farm five and one-half miles northeast of Kiel, where the Lulloff family remained for quite a number of years. Mr. Lulloff attended the district schools in Schleswig township.

His marriage to Miss Rose Loss{?}, who resided near Kiel, took place on May 29, 1876. The couple operated a farm four miles northeast of Kiel for 28 years.

At the turn of the century, 1900, the Lulloff disposed of their farm, and Mr. Lulloff formed a partnership with a brother-in-law, William F. Christel, of Valders, and they operated a hardware and furniture business in St. Nazianz. After three years the partnership was dissolved, and Mr. Christel started his own hardware store at Valders. For another 19 years Mr. Lulloff continued to operate the St. Nazianz business. Then for a period of 23 years Mr. Lulloff conducted a hardware an furniture business in Kiel at 205 Fremont street, in company with his sons, Fred and William.

Following the death of Fred Lulloff on Oct. 28, 1945, and the departure of William Lulloff, who made Milwaukee his home, the business was run by three grandsons of the deceased. For the past 22 years Mr. Lulloff has been retired from business activities.

Of the four children born to Mr. and Mrs. Lulloff, only one, William, of Milwaukee, survives. The three who preceded Mr. Lulloff in death were a daughter, Mrs. Clara Bennin on Aug. 29, 1939, a son, John, on March 28, 1925, and Fred, referred to above. Mrs. Lulloff passed away on Feb. 10, 1930. Thirty-one granchildren and 21 great grandchildren also survive together with two sisters, Mrs. Tina Stark of Chilton and Mrs. Otillie Heinzen of St. Nazianz.

Christmas In Heaven

I see the countless Christmas trees around the world below with tiny lights like heaven's stars reflecting on the snow.

The sight is so spectacular please wipe away that tear for I am spending Christmas with Jesus Christ this year.

Hear the many Christmas songs that people hold so dear but the sounds of music can't compare with the Christmas choir up here.

I have no words to tell you of the joy their voices bring for it is beyond description to hear the angels sing.

I know how much you miss me I see the pain inside your heart for I am spending Christmas with Jesus Christ this year.

I can't tell you of the splendor or the peace here in this place. Can you just imagine Christmas with our Savior face to face?

I'll ask him to lift your spirit as I tell Him of your love so then pray for one another as you lift your eyes above.

Please let your hearts be joyful and let your spirit sing for I am spending Christmas in heaven and I'm walking with the King.

W. H. Luehr, 69, Dies at Home of Daughter

Was Educator Many Years; Held State Offices Until 1929


William H. Luehr, former income assessor of the district comprising Manitowoc, Calumet, Door and Kewaunee counties and a well-known educator with a background of nearly 40 years in the teaching profession, died at the home of his daughter, Mrs. Howard Conger of Wauwatosa, at 5:30 o’clock Saturday morning.

Injuries which Prof. Luehr received over a year ago while on a vacation visit with his daughter considerably undermined his health and although he resumed his duties after an extended stay in the hospital, he never fully recovered from the effects of the accident. He continued in his post for several months after his return, but filed his resignation with the state tax commission in 1928, the resignation to take effect with the beginning of 1929.

For many years he was widely known and highly respected in this vicinity, making his residence in Manitowoc for about 20 years. He came to Manitowoc in 1896 when he assumed the position of principal of the old south side high school, retaining that post until the schools were consolidated into the central school system here in 1911.

Takes Sheboygan Falls Post

Following the consolidation of the schools here, Prof. Luehr became head of the Sheboygan Falls high school and was there for several years before he took a similar post in his native city of New Holstein. Later he came to Manitowoc as a teacher in the high school and remained there until he became chief examiner for the Wisconsin Civil Service Commission, a position he held during 1924 and 1925, with headquarters at Madison.

In 1925, he became assessor of incomes for the district including Manitowoc, Calumet, Door and Kewaunee counties. For 4 years he functioned as head of the department until illness forced his resignation.

Boyhood in New Holstein

He was born in New Holstein on June 26, 1861 and was 69 years of age at the time of his death. His boyhood was spent in New Holstein and he later attended the University of Wisconsin where he graduated with the class of 1887, assuming a position as head of the Wisconsin Rapids high school immediately upon graduation.

Prof. Luehr and Miss Clara Hachez of New Holstein were married in that city about 40 years ago, Mrs. Luehr preceding him in death about 10 years ago. Two children were born to them, Mrs. Howard Conger of Wauwatosa, and Robert Luehr of West Allis, and in addition three grandchildren survive.

Active in Organizations

The deceased was active in organizations and was a Past Exalted Ruler of the Manitowoc lodge of Elks and was affiliated with the Masonic order, the Manitowoc Kiwanis Club, the Eagles and was president of the Manitowoc county LaFollette Club for some time.

Funeral services were held at New Holstein on Wednesday afternoon with interment at the family lot in that city.

NOTE: A biographical sketch in the Educational History of Wisconsin, 1912, states that William H. Luehr attended New Holstein schools, Chilton High School, and then attended Oshkosh State Normal for two years and the University of Wisconsin Madison for two and one-half years, graduating in 1889. That latter year, he went to Wisconsin Rapids. He also did graduate study at UW Madison. Clara Hachez Luehr died October 21, 1920; see her obituary on this page.

An inquest will be held, it was announced. this week by the sheriff.

Mrs. Anna Lorenz passed away about 1:30 o’clock Sunday afternoon at St. Elizabeth’s hospital, Appleton, of injuries received that morning in an auto accident.

She was born at Millersville, Sheboygan county, in September, 1874, the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Christ Bennin.

William A. Langjahr, of 130 North St., Plymouth, one of the few surviving pioneers of the blacksmith trade in Wisconsin, died suddenly early today at Plymouth hospital.

He learned the trade at School Hill, in the town of Meeme, in 1878, and was a smithy at Plymouth for 70 years. Mr. Langjahr was 92 years old.

Born May 7, 1859, at School Hill, a son of Mr. and Mrs. William Langjahr, Sr., he was married to Miss Theresa Eberhardt at Plymouth on Dec. 26, 1886.

Learning the blacksmith trade in the Jac Hanson shop at School Hill when he was 19, he worked for Hanson until 1880, then moved to Sherwood and Hingham.

In December, 1881, he was hired by the late H. C. Bade, another smithy of Plymouth, purchased the shop and equipment the following year and opened his own establishment.

After a year in the old Bade shop, Mr. Langjahr sold out the business and purchased the Thurman blacksmith shop. It was in this smithy that he spent the major part of his working life.

In 1925 he sold the business to his son, Oscar, and “retired”. But up until a few years ago he seldom missed a day at the shop, doing small tasks that still required the hand of an expert on the hammer or at the anvil.

He was a member of St. John’s Evangelical Lutheran church and was one of the first members of the Plymouth Skat club and the Plymouth fire department.

Survivors are: a daughter, Mrs. Alfred (Martha) Krueger, Plymouth; two sons, Oscar, of Plymouth and Dr. Arno Langjahr of Milwaukee; 10 grandchildren; 13 great-grandchildren; and a sister, Mrs. John Blievernicht, Sioux City, Iowa.

His wife died July 3, 1931. One daughter, two brothers and two sisters also preceded him in death.

Funeral services will be held at 1:30 p.m., Thursday, at St. Johns Evangelical Lutheran church with the Rev. G. A. Karpinsky, assistant pastor, officiating. Burial will be in Union cemetery.

The body will lie in state at the Wittkopp Funeral home from 3 p.m., Wednesday, until 11 a.m., Thursday, at the church from Thursday noon until the hour of services.

Closes Earthly Career With Carbolic Acid

Louis Lampe Takes His Life at Home of his Mother 1112 St. Clair Avenue at 11:10 This Morning --- Dying When Discovered by His Mother.


Despondent, Louis Lampe, residing with his mother at 1112 St. Clair avenue committed suicide shortly before noon today, drinking an ounce and a half of carbolic acid. When discovered he was beyond need for medical aid. During the morning the young man was about the home and nothing was noticed strange in his conduct either by his mother or sister. A few minutes before 11 o'clock Mrs. Lena Lampe, mother of the young man and his sister Miss Anna, went to the home of George Lampe on 11th street, just a few doors away. Though absent but a few minutes the deed was done and Louis expired at 11:10 just as his mother returned with her daughter and sister-in-law whom she had hastily summoned. George Lampe who was at work was summoned to the home of his mother and word sent to Dr. Emil Guenther who was at St. Nicholas Hospital. Though he reached the home inside of 10 minutes the young man was dead and Coroner Feagan was notified. He reached there shortly before the noon hour and made a thorough investigation. The testimony of the mother, the sister and brother was all taken for file in his office. Everything indicates suicide and a certificate was issued that death resulted from the taking of carbolic acid. When Mrs. Lampe and her daughter MIss Anna left for the George Lampe home a few doors away, Louis Lampe was seated in a chair on the east end of the kitchen range. He did not appear to act strange and just before the mother left she was talking with him. A few minutes later when she returned the chair was vacant. Going to the stove to put in some wood she discovered an empty bottle in the stove and recognized the odor of carbolic acid. Her suspicions aroused, she hurried into the living room and discovered Louis seated on the lounge, his hands resting on his knees and his head back against the wall. He was groaning but all efforts to get him to speak were without avail. Mrs. Lampe endeavored to pour some milk down his throat but in this she failed. Rushing back to the home of her daughter-in-law, she gave the alarm and word was immediately sent to George Lampe, telling him of the suicide. Dr. Guenther was also summoned. An examination showed that his lips and mouth were badly burned and it is believed that he drank the whole amount in the bottle about an ounce and a half. Some weeks ago he had a sore over his eye and the carbolic acid was secured at that time and has been used diluted as a wash. He had used only a few drops and the bottle was nearly full. Louis Lampe had been despondent of late. He had gone with a girl residing at Sheboygan Falls until a short time ago when they had broken up, the young man of late having taken to drink. He did not do any work and seemed to take little interest in life. At the time of the suicide Lampe had his hate on, and had either gone outside or was about to do so when he took his life. His face was not distorted and there was nothing to indicate any great suffering. The large does evidently rendered him unconscious soon after the taking, and according to Dr. Guenther, death resulted in less than five minutes time. Mrs. Lampe states that Louis formerly worked industriously and had always brought his savings home, but ill health had preyed upon his mind and of late he had not acted as himself. There is little doubt that he was out of his mind at the time he committed the deed. Louis Lampe was 26 years of age the 12th of last May and is survived by his mother, Mrs. Lena Lampe an old resident of Sheboygan, one brother John of Racine, a brother George and sister, Miss Anna, both of Sheboygan. Much sympathy is expressed for the bereaved family. The body has been taken in charge of Mr. Hanchett and the funeral arrangements will be announced later.
