PHILIP GARBER Note: Please find following this message, the obituaries for my mother-in-law's grandfather. Philip Garvey. My mother-in-law was a Garber and no one knows of the explanation why the name got changed from Garvey to Garber. The Manitowoc Co. records show the name both ways for his four children. As we understand it, He married an Irish Woman (Ms. Haloran), but my mother-in-law thought that he himself was German (however there is an Irish immigrant, namely Patrick Garvey, buried in the Calvary Cemetery). “A FATAL ACCIDENT. Philip Garvey, aged forty-six years, died at the Holy Family hospital on Wednesday morning, Feb. 6, after having been unconscious for about for hours, as a result of a fall down a coal chute. The accident occurred Monday afternoon, Feb. 4, when Mr. Garvey, who was employed as a teamster, was about to unload a load of coal at the hospital. The unfortunate man had his skull fractured in the fall. He never regained consciousness. Garvey leaves a wife and two small children—a son and a daughter—to mourn his loss. The decedent was a brother-in-law of James Holleran, He was a member of the Catholic Order of Foresters, Cato lodge. The funeral was held last Saturday morning from the St. Boniface church in this city. Interment took place at Calvary cemetery. Mr. Garvey’s untimely end is deplored by all who knew him, and the bereaved family have the sympathy of the community in their sore affliction. The family home is near the plant of the Clay company, Mr. Garvey having been an employe of that concern.” The Manitowoc Pilot, Volume XLVIII, Manitowoc, Wis., Thursday, February 14, 1907, Number 32 ********* INJURY HAD FATAL RESULT Philip Garvey Dies From Fall at Hospital Monday Without having regained consciousness, Philip Garvey, the Clay Product Co. employe injured at the Holy Family hospital Monday, died early today, death being due to hemorrhages which he suffered as a result of the injury to the skull.

The dead man was 46 and is survived by a widow and two children who reside at the plant of the Manitowoc Clay Product Co.

ROYAL GENTGEN ROYAL GENTGEN KILLED BY TRAIN AT MINNEAPOLIS Meagre Telegram To Family Tells of Tragedy Royal Gentgen, son of John Gentgen, North Tenth street, was killed in a railway accident at Minneapolis Friday night at 9:30 and the body will be brought to this city for burial. Details of the accident were not given in the telegram sent here informing the family of the death but it is probable that the young man met death while engaged in his duties as a switchman in the Minneapolis yards, a position which he had held for some time. The family is awaiting announcement regarding the shipment of the body before funeral arrangements are made but the funeral will probably be under the auspices of the local Legion just as Mr. Gentgen was an ex-service man. Was a Herald Carrier Boy Royal Gentgen was born May 17, 1893 and would have been 29 years old at his next birthday. He received his early education of the public schools of this city but did not complete the high school course, being called on to assist his father in the dray and cartage business. During his school days he served as a member of The Herald carrier staff on a north side route, a position which he held for two years. Ten years ago the young man left here to make his home at Minneapolis and it was from there that he enlisted in Co. F., 21st Engineers and saw service overseas. After his return he visited in this city and then returned to Minneapolis where he again took up railroading. He is survived by his father, the mother died about five years ago, and six brothers, Lester, Francis, Malcom, Wynfield, Kenneth and Edward. Manitowoc Herald News, February 27, 1922 P. 1 ********* BODY OF ROYAL GENTGEN IS SENT HERE FOR BURIAL The body of Royal Gentgen, who was killed in an accident at Minneapolis last Friday night, arrived here this morning at 9:30 o’clock and the funeral will be held tomorrow morning at 9 o’clock with the services at Sacred Heart church, the Rev. W. J. Luby officiating. Burial will be at evergreen cemetery. The local American Legion post will be in charge, the deceased having been a member of a Minneapolis post and served overseas with an engineer corps. Gentgen met death while working in the Minneapolis yards of the Great Western as a switchman, a position which he held for some time. In some unaccountable manner he was caught between two box cars while at work and was crushed so badly that death was instantaneous. The body of the unfortunate man was found a few minutes later by other members of the switching crew. Manitowoc Herald News, February 28, 1922 P. 1
