Denison Review 10-30-1907

It is with sadness and regret that Deloit is called to mourn of its highly respected citizen, O. Gardner, who has been ill since last June. The funeral took place Monday at the L. D. S. church, Elder C. J. Hunt preaching the discourse and prayer by Rev. Bruce. The pallbearers were A. N. Galland, John Cose, Carl Winey, Jay Myers, E. K. Patchin and J. N. Turner, members of the M. W. A. Lodge, Mr. Gardner being a member of that order. The lodge thus loses its first member by death since first organized some ten years ago. A very large gathering was present at the funeral to show the last tribute of respect to the departed one.

The sympathy of the neighborhood is extended to the bereaved wife who so nobly cared for her husband through his prolonged illness. A wife and little daughter are bereft of husband and father.

Wm. Hamann Is Dead
Expired at Three O'clock This Morning
Ulcer Breaks and Causes Sudden Death

It was a great shock to the people of Schleswig this morning when word was passed around that Wm. Hamann had died at three o'clock a.m.

The cause of his death resulted from an ulcer in the ear which had bothered him for the past six months but to no great extent. During the early hours of this morning the ulcer broke and the discharge emptied into the brain, causing death in a short time.

For years he has been one of the efficient clerks at the Schroeder and Stoltenberg stores, and up to last Saturday had always been on duty, save a few days about a month ago when illness compelled him to lay off a short time. He was one of Schleswig's most popular young men, his acquaintances being his friends.

He Would have been 35 years old had he lived until next Sunday.

Denison Review 1-15-1890

From W. T. Huckstep and Wife - Deloit, Jan. 9, 1890 - In answer to an item in the Deloit correspondence last week we would say that what was said in regard to Wm. Huckstep's baby was not correct. The writer was either misinformed or had no regard for the truth. There was no soothing syrup given the child. There had been no such medicine in the house for eight years. The baby was taken with a very bad cold which had settled on the little ones lungs. From the time he revived several times and received nourishment. The little one was too weak to endure the cold. He passed away the third of January, being just seven weeks old. The funeral sermon was preached at the house Saturday 4th, by Rev. Mayhood of Deloit and the baby was buried in the Deloit cemetery.

Howorth, Carl (1901)

Denison Review - March 26, 1901 - Dunlap
Suffering from a distorted imagination brought on by years of catarrhal affliction, Carl Howorth, son of D. Howorth of this city, ended his life Monday morning by hanging himself to a tree on his father's farm about three and a half miles southeast of town.

Death was not directly caused by the process of hanging, but rather from hemorrhage caused therefrom. Neither was death instantaneous for he lived nearly five hours after the deed, and was conscious until within a few minutes of death. Being in poor health, the deceased's father persuaded him to take a trip west about a year ago and he visited Durango, Colo. And adjacent points in hope to get relief from his catarrh, which was then very bad.

Returning home it was noticed he was unusually nervous and excitable, but this was attributed to the fact that, being near-sighted and scarcely able to see, traveling alone had worried him and produced excitement. Nothing further marked his mental condition until about two months ago when he complained to his brother, Dow, of being unable to remember anything and since then, forgetfulness had grown steadily worse, until he was never certain of anything.

Carl had spent the winter at home, but had accompanied his brother, Dow, home to the farm Saturday afternoon, riding his own horse to the place. Turning the animal loose, it seems that he laid off his overcoat and made straight for the windmill, up which he climbed to the top, and stood upon the edge fifty feet above the ground with as much unconcern as though he had been on the ground. In his rational state, no power could have persuaded him to climb to the tower, but there he stood asking his brother where he had best jump. He carried the idea that a man was climbing the mill to kill him and it took Dow two and a half hours to convince him that there was no one there, so taking off one of his overshoes he flung it downward toward the imaginary man and then climbed down.

Once down his reason seemed to have returned and said to his brother, "What have I done? Did I try to kill myself? I surely must be crazy, for no man with his senses would do such a thing." He then told his brother that he was willing to go to the insane asylum provided he would go with him and when told he would do so, he became pacified and went to bed about midnight, being, upon request, accompanied by his brother. All this time and the following day he labored under the hallucination that three strange men in the house, always whispering his fears in the ears of members of the family rather than make his suspicions audibly known.

Sunday he arose as usual, but was closely watched by his brother and kept from harms way. Night came and the two brothers again retired, but Dow fell asleep from sheer exhaustion and taking advantage of his brother's slumber, Carl arose and left the house. Mrs. Howorth heard him leave and aroused her husband, who made a hurried search for him, finding him in a bewildered state in the hog lot. On the return to the house, Carl said something about tying a rope to a tree near the creek but his mind would not permit him to remember whether he had done so or not. The father having been notified reached the farm about 3:45 Monday morning, passing through Carl's room in order that he might hear from Dow the condition of the elder son. The door between the two rooms was ajar and the conversation which was conducted in low tones did not exceed four minutes but notwithstanding that, Carl, during this short absence of his brother, stealthily left the house. Returning to the bedroom, Carl's absence was noted and Dow, with an emergency lantern, hurried to the creek where the rope was supposed to be.

Sure enough the rope was there and before Dow reached the spot about 150 yards from the house, he heard his brother drop and being attired in night clothes, his dangling body was easily seen. Instantly the rope was severed, but owing to the crippled wrist of the father it was necessary to secure help from a neighbor before the young man could be carried to the house. In the meantime he recovered consciousness and was able to converse with his brother. Shortly after this Dr. Edwards, who had been previously summoned, arrived and administered to the young man but his case was hopeless and he died at 8:30 a.m. Monday morning.

Irwin, Hattie E. (1900)

Denison Review, Tuesday, 3-20-1900

People were shocked here Saturday by the news that Miss Hattie Irwin had died at two o'clock that morning at Ute.

She had begun some time ago taking treatment of Dr. Lawson of that place while teaching near there. Thursday she did not feel as well as usual and took the afternoon train for Ute to get medicine, but she had overrated her strength and in walking from the depot to Dr. Lawson's office against the strong wind, had ruptured a blood vessel and was taken with hemorrhage. Dr. Lawson had her removed to his residence and her mother and sister at this place sent for. Dr. Hart of this place was also called and all the loving hands or medical skill could do was done for her but without avail. The Master had said, "Come" and the body only was returned to her home Saturday afternoon.

The funeral services were held at the M. E. church of which she was a faithful member, at 2:30 Sunday. Rev. Carson was assisted in the service by Rev. Brown, a former pastor and Rev. Hild of Ute. The remains were followed by a large concourse of friends to their last resting place by the side of her father who died a few years ago. John Davis of Powshiek county, to whom she was to have been married soon, was telegraphed to, Friday morning. He reached Arion on the evening flyer but on account having to go to Ute with a team, reached her bedside an hour too late. The mourning friends have the sympathy of all in their sad bereavement.

Koepen, Wm. (1911)

Schleswig Leader - August 4, 1911
Caught Under Engine

Wm. Koepen of this vicinity met a horrible death Tuesday evening when he was caught under a threshing engine that broke through a bridge.

The accident occurred near the home of John C. Moeller in Otter Creek, southeast of Schleswig. Koepen was running the threshing machine and came to this bridge. He had been warned that the bridge was not safe and that he should not attempt to cross it. He decided to try it, however.

The bridge was a short one. The front wheels were nearly across when the rear wheels go onto the bridge. The bridge could not stand the weight of the rear part of the engine, and gave way, the engine tipping to the left. The engineer managed to jump off the engine as it fell and was uninjured.

Koepen, however, hung onto the steering wheel and was carried over with the engine. He must have turned a complete somer-sault as the engine turned over, the top sticking into the ground, and the four wheels up in the air. The body was sunk into the mud about a foot. A ditch was dug underneath in order to get the body out.

Death was certainly instantanious as his neck was broken, a big hole cut in the back of his head, and his chest caved in. One leg was also broken.

The body was taken to the home of his parents near Ricketts, where the funeral was held Friday. Koepen was about thirty-five years old.

The threshing rig belongs to Henry Hennings. It will be a big and expensive job to get the engine set up again.

Kruger, Mrs. Emil (1893)

Denison Review 12-13-1893 - Vail Observer
Mrs. Emil Kruger, Tuesday morning, Dec. 5, 1893, at her residence in Vail, of lung fever. Mrs. Kruger had been sick only about two weeks and on Saturday last seemed so much better that it was though there was no doubt of her speedy recovery. But the terrible disease had fastened its fangs with too sure a grip and on Tuesday morning at about 6 o'clock she passed away sincerely lamented by all who knew her.

Three children, the eldest but seven years of age, the youngest one and a half years, are left motherless by this most distressing blow. The light of a happy household has been suddenly extinguished. The enjoyment of the presence and the brighter prospects of the future have been alike destroyed and in their stead reigns the gloom of bereavement, the darkness of grief. The sorrowing husband, loved, honored and respected by his fellow men has, in this hour of greatest trial, the heartfelt sympathy of all.

His Neck Broken in Two Places

Arnold Lee, a well-known Dow City character met sudden death in a runaway accident a mile east of that city last evening. Lee with his companions, John Holliday and John Shafer, were returning from Arion. Near the wagon bridge over the Boyer east of Dow City they met B. M. McElwain on horseback. They stopped to talk with him and Lee got out of the wagon. They were all in a jolly mood and just as Lee started to climb into the wagon one of the party gave a yell. This started the horses and they sprang down the road throwing Lee and Shafer. The latter escaped with a few bruises but Lee had his neck broken in two places and his death must have been instantaneous. Mr. McElwain rode to town as speedily as possible and help was quickly on the scene but it was at once found that Lee was beyond all help.

The body of the unfortunate man was placed in the wagon from which he had been thrown and taken to the undertaking rooms and later the remains were taken to the home.

Old Soldier Dead - Mr. Hans J. Lorentzen Dies at the Home of His Son - He Held an Excellent War Record - Was three Times Promoted for Valiant Service. Enlisted from Wisconsin in the Ninth Infantry.

Mr. Hans J. Lorentzen, an old and respected war veteran, died at the home of his son Herman in Denison on Friday evening, Dec. 4 at 7:30 o'clock after a short illness. He was 72 years of age at the time of his death and leaves seven children to mourn his death. The funeral was held at the Lutheran church on Tuesday, Dec. 8.

Hans J. Lorentzen was born in Bergenhusen, Germany, February 15, 1832, and removed to this country in 1854, settling at New Holstein, Wis. Where he was married to Miss Margaritha Jensen, in 1866, soon after the close of the war. Eight children were born to this union, all with the exception of one are still living. The deceased came to Denison in the year 1887 and has made this place his home ever since, where he has followed his trade, that of a painter. He was considered a first-rate painter and sign writer and had plenty of work when he was able to attend to it. He was not always in the best of health, his age and injuries received during the war incapacitating him.

At the outbreak of the civil war he enlisted with the Ninth Wisconsin Infantry, Company K and was its first sergeant. Afterward he was promoted for good service to second lieutenant of Company B in December 1862 and in August 1863 was again promoted to first lieutenant in Company H. In the early part of 1865 the regiment was reorganized and Mr. Lorentzen was again honored by being appointed captain of Company C, which position he held with honor until he was mustered out and received honorable discharge in 1866. He was a good soldier, serving his country and flag well and his promotions were duly earned. The G.A.R. post of Denison turned out to attend his funeral as did a host of friends who will miss the genial disposition and the many war stories he was so fond of telling.
