Greenbush Young Man Is Crushed To Death

Loses His Life Instantly When Tractor Falls

Oscar L. Raeder Is Instantly Killed At Roadside

Machine Capsized


Trivial Cause Contributes to Death of Highly Regarded Young Farmer -- Driving Heavy Motor at Roadside, Wheel Strikes Stone, Which Causes Overbalancing -- Driver Falls Under Machine

A farm tractor crushed out the life of Oscar L. Raeder, 24-year-old son of Mr. and Mrs. Valentine Raeder of the town of Greenbush, at 7:15 o'clock Wednesday night when it turned over on the Krumrey road east of Plymouth.

Mr. Raeder was taking the tractor to his brother's farm in the town of Sheboygan Falls at the time, and was traveling at the side of the road to avoid the hard pavement when the front wheels struck a stone and were deflected in such a manner as to cause the machine to lose its equilibrium and turn over.

He was instantly killed when the steering wheel and engine crushed his chest. A boy residing nearby witnessed the accident and sent out the alarm. Fred Schreiber and Henry Schoenfeld, living nearest to the scene of the accident, rushed to his assistance, but were unable to do anything to save his life. They notified a Plymouth physician who was summoned. The body was removed to Wittkopp Undertaking parlors.

Coroner Van Zanten made an examination of the circumstances surrounding the accident this morning and came to the conclusion that death was accidental and that no inquest was necessary.

Mr. Raeder was born in the town of Greenbush on August 24, 1897. Besides his parents he is survived by four brothers, Fred, of Sheboygan Falls; Herman, Milton and John at home; Mrs. Otto Ebenretter of Plymouth; Miss Clara Raeder of Sheboygan, and Miss Laura at home.

Funeral services will be held from the late home on Saturday, the Rev. Veh of the Evangelical church officiating.

A bride in June, a corpse in December, 'ere the novelty of the honeymoon had scarcely worn away, Marie Murphy Reiss paid the penalty that is allotted to all human beings, some are more fortunate in having the span of life cover more years, but their daily trials and tribulations also are of longer duration: so that if this young lady was not blessed with years, she was spared the mortal torments that life is heir to and that numerous years are always attended with. Now she sleeps the sleep of the Just and we hope a bright and celestial home is the reward that will be accorded to her in exchange for the short life she was allowed in this mortal sphere.

Deceased was born in the town of Lima twenty four years ago last March and when quite young came to the town of Plymouth where she has resided until last June when she became the wife of John Reiss. Her early education was received in Plymouth at the St. John's Parochial school, then she attended the high school, from which she graduated with the class of 1913, and since has taught school successfully in different parts of Sheboygan county.

Her demise occurred last Sunday morning at an early hour after a short week's illness with Spanish influenza from which her husband was also a sufferer at the same time, and by whom she is survived together with her parents Mr. and Mrs. Peter Murphy of the town of Plymouth, one sister, Mrs. E.H. Puhr of Highmore, S.D., and three brothers Thomas of the town of Mitchell, Dr. G.H. Murphy of Athens and John of the town of Plymouth.

The pall bearers were: Henry Riordan, Emmet Cosgrove, Christ Baker, Dennis Prindeville, Frank Gannon and Leo Hanlon. To the bereaved husband and relatives the sympathy is extended by their friends.

There he had resided all these years, and no resident of the county was better known or more highly esteemed. In all that period of time he had never missed casting a vote until last spring when illness prevented his going, and even then he spoke to those about him, and wanted to know if it would not be possible to send his vote to the polls. He had been ill for the past year of so and suffered a great deal, but was a man who seldom complained, even when the pains were most excruciating.

Sept. 10, 1864 he was married to Miss Johanna Sheehy, who survives him together with eight children, John J. of Joliet, Ill, Mrs. Michael Wolff of Sheldon, Indiana, Dennis D. of Tacoma, Washington, Mrs. August Meyer, Mrs. Thomas Kelly,Plymouth; Miss Margaret, Stephen and Henry at home, two sisters, Mrs. Michael Kelly, of Bridgeport.

On Friday afternoon, following a very severe attack of pneumonia, Mr. James Rooney passed away at his home in this city. For days his life had been despaired of.

The funeral was held Monday forenoon from the Catholic church, the Rev. Father Meyer officiating. The interment was in the Catholic cemetery in the town of Mitchell. The obsequies were attended by many of the friends and acquaintances of the family.

Mr. James Rooney was born in the county of Sligo, Ireland, on May 12, 1833. In 1848 he came to America and early settled in this part of the state, and for many years he was a resident of this county {Sheboygan}, residing both in Mitchell and in this city. His union with Catherine Murphy took place in Fond du Lac on January 28, 1867. Mr. Rooney owned and conducted a farm in the town of Mitchell, then for several years he was engaged in business in this city, after which he returned to the farm. For several years past he has lived in this city, having retired from active labors. Besides his wife he leaves four children as follows: H.J. Rooney, the well-known attorney of this city; John Rooney of Mitchell; Miss Agnes Rooney at home here, and Miss Fannie Cooney, wife of Dr. Cooney of Appleton.

Mr. Rooney was a man of strong convictions. In politics he allied himself with the party which best represented his principles to which he believed in making party subordinate. He was a democrat in the broader sense of the word and a party to gain and to hold his allegiance had to be strictly true to real democratic principles. In religion he adhered to the Roman Catholic faith which appealed to him who believed in the unchangeableness of God and his laws. To him these words had deep significance: "As it was in the beginning it is now and ever shall be."

As Mr. Rooney was strictly honest with himself he was honest in his dealings with others. He was sincere and upright and was most worthy of the respect and esteem in which he was held.

Infant Passes Away

Mr. and Mrs. Elwin Royce, living on the Benj. Ford farm in the town of Lyndon {Sheboygan county}, were called upon to part with their baby boy, Elwin, last Saturday.

The little child was but eleven weeks old and had been sick for about four weeks with whooping cough. The infant was unable to bear up under the severe strain of the continued coughing and the muscles around the heart finally became exhausted and the little one's sufferings were relieved.

The funeral services were held Monday afternoon from the home of Mr. and Mrs. Royce, Rev. F.C. Bliss of the Congregational church in this city officiating. The remains were laid away in a beautiful white casket; on the plate of the casket was the inscription, "Our Darling," which also appeared on each handle. There were many beautiful floral offerings and a white rose was placed in each of the child's hands. Music was rendered at the house by a quartette composed of Mesdames C.R. Nutt and H. Rice, Miss Ella Saemann and I.L. Jones.

The interment was made in the Winooski cemetery. Here the scene was very beautiful. The casket was lowered into the vault prepared especially for the same. The sides of the grave from the vault up were trimmed in white cloth which was literally covered with beautiful white flowers. As a part of the closing ceremony at the grave the "Merry Maidens" of which Mrs. Royce is a member, sang "God be with you til we meet again." The services were very impressive throughout and were a fitting tribute to the innocence and purity of an infant child.

Town Wilson
Gone To His Final Rest

Another of Sheboygan county's worthy pioneer residents has ceased his daily toil and passed to the Great Beyond. This community was shocked last Tuesday afternoon when the news was heard of the sudden death of Wm. Roehrborn, due to a stroke of paralysis which he suffered the previous evening after having performed his usual day's work and attended church the day before in the best of health. Deceased who was a native of Bibra, Saxony, was born March 30, 1836 and when twelve years old came to America with his parents, who immediately settled in this township, felled the forest and developed a productive farm, which was turned over to him at their death. Mr. Roehrborn was always known as one of our substantial farmers, a frugal and peaceable citizen, a kind friend, a fond husband and father and his taking away is universally deplored. As a neighbor he was ever accommodating and as a man, genial and honorable. He was a veteran of the Civil war, serving in the Ninth Wisconsin regiment of volunteers for a period of three years. He was united in marriage to Miss Johanna Doebert in 1867. Their union was blessed with a family of seven children who are all living as follows: Willie, Henry, Mary and Helena, residing at home; Christoph and Mrs. Frank Bock, also of this town; Mrs. Henry F. rammer and Mrs. Will Yankow of Sheboygan. He is also survived by six brothers and three sisters: Carl, residing in town; Fred of Sheboygan Falls; Herman, Theodore, Albert, Emil, Mrs. John Littge and Mrs. Moldenhauer, all located in Marshfield and vicinity; and Mrs. Chas. F. Schlieder of Waldo. The funeral was held last Friday at the late home at one o'clock, followed by a service in the Lutheran church of which deceased was a worthy and active member, the Rev. Herman Schmidt officiating. Interment was made in Flader's Hill cemetery on the Sauk Trail road.
