OTTO LEIDER VICTIM OF OWN GUN ON SUNDAY Otto Leider, 35, Dies of Wound - Joseph Nemitz Has Narrow Escape Hunting Trip Fatal Otto Leider with two companions, Emil Selle and Edwin Lutzke, was hunting rabbits in the Arthur Tills grove near Talhammer's corners. The first warning of an accident came in a cry for help from Leider and when Selle and Lutzke reached the scene they found the man across a stump with a gunshot wound at the right knee. He was bleeding badly and the two carried him to the Lutzke car and rushed him to the hospital in this city. Dr. Shaw, who was called found that the ligaments and bone in the right knee had been shot away by the charge from the gun which must have occurred at close range as paper wadding was found in the knee. The loss of blood has been great, so great in fact that little hope was held out for the victim's life. He made a brave battle but the end came at 6:45 this moniing. Neither Lutzke nor Selle could explain what happened and Leider was not able to tell but it is believed his gun fell and was accidently set off. Born in this county, January 1, 1892; Otto Leider was thirty-five years old and had always made the county his home. He was married sixteen years ago to Augusta Selle and is survived by his widow, three children, Arllne, Minnie and Eldora, his mother, Mrs. Augusta Leider, six brothers, Edwin and Adolph of this city, Herman and Charles of Birnamwood, Eddie and Paul of Liberty and by six sisters, Mrs. Ernst Schmidt and Mrs. Herman Jenz of this city, Mrs. Fred Schmidt and Mrs. August Lenz of Liberty, Mrs. Wllliam Koeppen of Post Lake and Mrs. Frank Rebeck of Two Rivers.

SOPHIE LIPPERT From Der Nord Westen, 31 Dec. 1908: Death Sunday in Liberty, from old age debility, of 78-year old Mrs. Sophie Lippert, widow of the late John Lippert. The deceased was counted among the original settlers of Town Liberty where she had lived for 53 years. She is survived by 7 children. The funeral was held yesterday afternoon. ********* from researcher/see contributors page: Her maiden name is Genz Headstones for Trinity Lutheran, Liberty are being put on Findagrave.com. Headstone pic for Sophia is not clear and hard to read, but from what I can make out, she was born 1830 and died 26 Dec 1908. ********* from another researcher/see contributors page/willing to share: Sophia Magdalena Genz Lippert was born on 17 February, 1831 and died 26 December, 1908. This information comes directly off of her death certificate, volume 9 page 543, Manitowoc County. In addition, I have a copy of her traveling papers from her pastor in Germany which clearly give the birth date as 17 February, 1831, along with her baptismal and confirmation information. Sophia was born in Strietfeld, Mecklenbrug-Schwerin, according to this paperwork. I also have a copy of paperwork showing she was adopted by Arietfelo Helmuth and Maria Ernestine Catherine (Schwarz) Genz on 4 March, 1833. Family stories that have been passed down relate that she was known to tell people that she was the daughter of royalty and even had a basket of food packed for her by the castle, when she left for America. I have not been able to prove or disprove this. However, the guardianship/adoption papers do allow for some inkling that she may have been the by-blow of some royalty. She was adopted out of a German convent at Malchow.
