The deceased was a truly estimable woman, has lived many years--some twenty-three, we believe--in Two Rivers, and leaves a husband and seven children to mourn her sudden death.

Manitowoc Daily Herald, Thursday, March 16, 1916 P.1 ********* COUNTY’S OLDEST RESIDENT PASSES AWAY AT TWO RIVERS George Hallauer, 93 Fought in German Revolution in 1848 and then Fled Country to Locate Here In the passing away of George Hallauer, Sr., aged 93, at Two Rivers, this morning, Manitowoc county lost its oldest citizen. Born in Province Baden, Germany, March 10, 1824, this old pioneer nearly rounded a lifetime to the century mark. During the German revolution in 1848, he fought under General Franz Siegel, however the efforts of the revolutionists were in vain and when the war was over, it was necessary to flee to another land. Mr. Hallauer immediately came to America and during the days when sailing vessels were most in evidence to carry the immigrants to this country, the trip across the ocean consumed nearly two months. He came to Milwaukee and from there he walked following the Indian trails in the wilderness to Two Rivers, then a settlement, and he has seen it grow into a substantial city. For many years before the Milwaukee Lake Shore and Western railroad was built, he was engaged in hauling freight and mail between Two Rivers and Milwaukee, making one round trip weekly. The funeral will take place at Two Rivers Friday afternoon. He is survived by one son, Geo. Hallauer, Jr., five daughters, Mrs. Sophie Altman, Mrs. Theresa Anderson, Mrs. Fred Trester, Mrs. Carl Hahn and Mrs. Anton Molly. Manitowoc Daily Herald, Wednesday, July 25, 1917, Page 7

DIANTHA (SMITH) HAMILTON DEATH OF MRS. DIANTHA HAMILTON As we are about to go to press we are informed of the death of Mrs. Diantha Hamilton, one of our oldest and most highly esteemed citizens. While Mrs. Hamilton has been in failing health for several months the tender devotion and care of the family together with her remarkable vitality, has lessened the anxiety of her many friends causing her death to come with sudden realization of the loss of one who has meant much to our community. Mrs. Hamilton was a daughter of Hezekiah Huntington Smith who came to Two Rivers from Youngstown, Niagara County, N.Y. in 1846. She was born at Youngstown July 29, 1830. After coming west with her family she resided for a time in Milwaukee, attending the old Milwaukee College, joining her family at Two Rivers in 1846. At that time Two Rivers was a mere frontier settlement consisting of a few log houses located in a small clearing in the dense forest. She was married at Two Rivers, December 23, 1849 to Henry C. Hamilton who has also come here from Niagara County, New York. Four children were born of this union, all living today, J.E. and H.P. of this city George D. Hamilton of Detroit, Minn., and Mrs. J.L. Moore of Atlanta, Ga. At the outbreak of the Civil War her husband enlisted as Quarter-master of the 21st. Regiment of Wisconsin Volunteers. On April 4, 1864 he died at Nashville, Tenn. Altho for fifty years the widow of a soldier and officer in the Civil War, Mrs. Hamilton never received a pension. Left without means upon the death of her husband with four small children, the youngest a baby she managed to support herself and children until they could provide for themselves. She endured privations with fortitude and in her later years lived to enjoy some of the comforts of life. Among the many services she and her family have rendered this city and community, she held the distinction of having taught the first school in Two Rivers and her pupils were some of the pioneers who helped to develop the community. Measuring her life with its far reaching influence, we are unable to express the full significance of her service. Her father, husband, children and grandchildren have had a leading part in the development of Two Rivers and she lived more than four score years, a witness to all changes that have taken place. It is with a deep sense of gratitude that the people of this community extend deepest and most heartfelt sympathy to the family in bereavement. Funeral services will be held from Grace Church, Sunday afternoon at 2:30 Rev. Morris officiating. Two Rivers Reporter, Saturday, Dec. 13, 1913:

ETTA SHOVE HAMILTON Many Mourn Death of Mrs. Hamilton, Lived Important Full Life In the death of Mrs. Etta Shove Hamilton, wife of J.E. Hamilton, the founder of the Hamilton Mfg. Co., Two Rivers yesterday lost one of its best beloved figures. A friend and confidant of three generations of local people, Mrs. Hamilton was a colorful and vital factor in community life for more than half a century. Until her fatal illness Mrs. Hamilton retained her lively and acute interest in civic affairs, and in the welfare of her wide circle of friends in all walks of life in Two Rivers. The part played by Mrs. Hamilton in the early days of struggle of the Hamilton Mfg. Co. is well known to the older residents of the city. She and Mr. Hamilton were married just before he quit his job in the old pail factory to launch into the making of wood type for himself, and Mrs. Hamilton spent the first year or two of her married life as the “office force” of the small business. She was bookkeeper, and chief business adviser of her husband, who has always credited her with a large share of responsibility for his success, not only in the early years but later. Became Teacher Mrs. Hamilton was born August 5, 1859, in Manitowoc, the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Henry Shove. Her father was a pioneer business man of that city. The family remained in Manitowoc only about a year after the daughter’s birth, however, moving to Appleton, where Mrs. Hamilton was brought up and educated. Finishing the common schools and high school of that city, she became a student in Lawrence college, and fitted herself for teaching. It was as a teacher that Mrs. Hamilton returned to Manitowoc county, coming here in 1877 to take a post in the village school. Here on July 4, she first met Mr. Hamilton, who had just returned from a gold-seeking expedition to the Black Hills. They met at the home of Mr. Hamilton’s grandfather, Hezekiah Huntington Smith, well known to the older generation as “Deacon” Smith. Mrs. Hamilton was a guest at the Smith home in Two Rivers, preparatory to taking charge of classes in the fall. Mrs. Hamilton taught a year here, and two in the Appleton schools. On August, 5, 1880, she married Mr. Hamilton, and a short time afterward the firm of “J.E. Hamilton, Hollywood Type”, was set up in the back room of Mr. Hamilton’s mothers home, where he had brought his bride. The “equipment” consisted of a foot-power scroll-saw on which Mr. Hamilton cut out type faces, at first in the evening hours after his work at the lathe in the pail factory, until he launched into business for himself. Helped Husband The first bookkeeping system of the new concern was a series of dates, names and figures scrawled on the wall alongside the bench in the shop—the names of the customers, details of orders and dates of delivery. Soon realizing that this system—or lack of it—would not do, Mr. Hamilton and his bride bought themselves a treatise on bookkeeping, and spent the winter of 1180-81 studying the mysteries of double entry, with laboratory practice in setting up and keeping in balance the books of their own concern. For the first year or so Mrs. Hamilton was the bookkeeper and cashier. Their daughter, Grace, was born August 18, 1881, when the new business was not a year old, and the type-shop was her nursery for a time, as Mrs. Hamilton combined the duties of business woman and mother. Later Mrs. Hamilton dropped out of active participation in the affairs of the business but she always retained an active and informed interest, and was Mr. Hamilton’s business counselor in all his wide affairs. Until less than a year ago Mrs. Hamilton retained perfect health, and until two years ago was an active and accurate golfer. She was fond of younger people, deeply interested in public matters, and a confidant of the late Senator Thomas Walsh who was a childhood friend of both Mr. and Mrs. Hamilton. She was especially active in club and charitable work in Two Rivers, and was a leading member of Grace Congregational church. Two Children Mrs. Hamilton was the mother of two children, the late Mrs. Grace Sweeney, who died several years ago, and George S. Hamilton. One grandson, John Hamilton, survives, and two brothers, Henry and Morton Shove, who live in Iowa. Mr. and Mrs. Hamilton celebrated their golden wedding at their home here on August 5, 1930, and entertained at that time a number of well-known people from all over Wisconsin, as well as receiving hundreds of congratulatory messages from all over the nation. Mrs. Hamilton’s death was directly caused by pneumonia, according to word reaching here today. She had been ill since early last spring, when suffered a stroke of paralysis, which kept her practically bed-ridden most of the time since. Her strength had been failing fast in the last few weeks, and recently Mrs. George Hamilton left Two Rivers to be at her bedside along with her husband. Funeral services will be held at Pasadena on Monday at 2:30 p.m. After a private service the body will be laid in a mausoleum there until spring or early summer, when Mr. Hamilton will bring it to Two Rivers for burial in the family plot in Pioneer’s Rest.

Decedent came to Two Rivers 62 years ago and for fifty years was a member of St. John's church in that city. Three weeks ago, when she began to fail, she was taken to Milwaukee where death occurred. Manitowoc Daily Herald, Friday, April 7, 1916 P.3 ******** COURTS OF 2 COUNTIES IN CLASH OVER ADMINISTRATION OF ESTATE OF FORMER TWO RIVERS WOMAN Probate courts of Manitowoc and Milwaukee counties will clash over the probation of the estate of the late Mrs. Dorothy Hammel, a former Two Rivers woman who died at Milwaukee on April 6, petitions for probation of the estate having been filed in both courts. Two wills have also been filed, one in each court and a question of jurisdiction has been raised that may be carried to the supreme court for ruling. Mrs. Hammel, who was adjudged an incompetent by the Manitowoc county court on March 28, upon petition of her brother, C.H. Boedecker, of Milwaukee, left an estate said to be worth $8,500. The woman was a patient at the hospital here prior to March 28 when adjudged incompetent, but later was taken to Milwaukee by her brother, who was appointed guardian. She died there on April 6. A few days later a will with petition for administration was filed by Boedecker in Milwaukee courts and on April 11 Attorney F.W. Dicke of Two Rivers, filed a petition with a will in probate court here asking administration, being named in the will as executor. The petition in Milwaukee court was filed first, however, which raises an issue on jurisdiction. The will filed at Milwaukee is dated in 1905 while that filed in the local court is dated in 1910 which recognizes the will here as the last testament of the decedent. Mrs. Hammel, who was a widow, had not gained a residence in Milwaukee county which fact may have a bearing on the issue raised. Manitowoc Daily Herald, Tuesday, May 9, 1916 P.1

HENRY HANSEN JR. (d. 1951) Henry Hansen Dies Suddenly at Two Rivers Henry Hansen, 69, widely known retired Two Rivers business man whose downtown Two Rivers tavern with its art glass front was a showplace along the lake shore prior to World War I, died suddenly in his sleep in his apartment in the Hansen block at 1606 Washington street, Two Rivers, Saturday night. Earlier in the evening Mr. Hansen complained of feeling ill and retired to his bedroom. His wife later noting his condition, summoned a physician, but efforts to revive him failed. Although not in the best of health in recent weeks, he was up and about and had planned a trip to Milwaukee with Mrs. Hansen early this week. Funeral services will be held at the Klein & Stangel Inc., funeral home, Two Rivers, at 2 o’clock Wednesday afternoon, the Rev. M. J. Roehrdanz, pastor of Emanuel Evangelical United Brethren church, officiating. Interment will be in Pioneers’ Rest cemetery, Two Rivers. The body may be viewed at the funeral home from 7 o’clock Monday night until the time of services. Born in Two Rivers Henry Hansen was born in Two Rivers, a son of the late Henry and Sophie Schmidt Hansen, who were among the early couples to immigrate to Two Rivers from Germany. His father, a cabinet maker by trade, worked at the old Mann Brothers pail factory until the late eighties when he acquired a Two Rivers landmark on Washington street from the late Bernard Richter. The building was rebuilt in 1900 to a two story structure where the senior Henry Hansen established a tavern. Henry Hansen took over the operation of the tavern from his father in 1905 after working for a year at the old Aluminum Manufacturing company, predecessor to the Aluminum Goods Manufacturing company. Seven years later in 1912 Mr. Hansen remodeled the tavern, elegantly furnishing it with plush leather upholstered quarter sawed oak booths, designed by the late Hans Meyer of the Nelson Lumber company. Its front was rebuilt in art glass manufactured by the old Tremmel Art Glass Works of Two Rivers, making the business place one of the most attractive in this area. Popular Spot For Years Prior to the first world war, the Diamond Café, as it was then named, was a favorite stopping place for salesmen and notables in the entertainment and political field. Mr. Hansen was a lifelong and active Democrat but never aspired for office. In 1916 Mr. Hansen, in moving to Kewaunee to operate the old Kuke House, leased his tavern to Charles Hooper, later a Cincinnati engarvel (sic). He returned to resume operation of the place in 1919. Came prohibition and Mr. Hansen removed the picturesque art glass front, which he had preserved in the basement of his business place, and remodeled the place into an ice cream parlor and restaurant. In 1926 Mr. Hansen sold the business place to Lyman J. Nash and the late Robert Mohr, moving to South Gate, Calif., where he operated a billiard parlor for six years. He returned to Two Rivers with Mrs. Hansen in 1933, repurchasing the establishment from Mr. Mohr, and reconverted the Diamond into a tavern and restaurant. Three years ago he retired, leasing the enterprise to the present operator, Augusta Nauman. Billiard Player Mr. Hansen’s favorite diversion was pocket billiards and three cushion billiards and was considered one of the outstanding players in this area since his youth. During the early operation of his tavern Mr. Hansen took on the agency for the old R.C.H. Automobile and prided himself with having the first car with electric headlights in Two Rivers. For nearly 30 years Mr. Hansen had been a member of the Two Rivers lodge of Elks No. 1380. Surviving are his widow, the former Augusta Schultz, whom he married in 1904, and two nieces, Mrs. Olga Klusmeyer of Manitowoc and Mrs. Marcella Kirsch of Milwaukee, and a nephew, Chester Hansen of Detroit, Mich.

JOHN HERIAN From Der Nord Westen, 26 Mar. 1908: (From the correspondent in Two Rivers, 23 Mar.) John Herrian was buried Saturday afternoon. He died in the mental facility in Manitowoc where he had been a patient for many years. Herrian, who came here from Mishicott, operated a harness shop and enjoyed a fine reputation. He sold the business and retired and a few years later was declared to be mentally ill and sent to the state mental facility in Oshkosh, later being transferred to the Manitowoc facility as incapable of being healed. His family, consisting of his widow and several grown children, still live here. ********** From Der Nord Westen, 26 Mar. 1908: John Harrian of Two Rivers, who has been a patient in the local mental facility since 19 July 1900, took his own life Thursday morning last week. He had often threatened suicide and was kept under close watch, but with the mentally disturbed it is often impossible and despite all surveillance, exceptions occur. By profession he was a harness maker and had lived in Two Rivers for a long time. When he became obsessed with making a perpetual machine producing electricity, his mind snapped and he was sent to the state mental facility in Oshkosh and then later transferred to the local mental facility here and placed under a suicide watch. In some way he found out that the facility's mechanic kept a shotgun in his bedroom. On Thursday morning he noticed that the mechanic had failed to lock his door. He went in, took the weapon, cocked it, tied a string from his apron to the trigger and the other end to his foot, put the muzzle in his mouth and fired it with his foot. (Article goes into specific detail of the aftermath.) Harrian was 51 years old and leaves a widow and 7 children in Two Rivers. A coroner's inquest was held. ********* From Der Nord Westen, 30 Apr. 1908: (From the correspondent in Two Rivers, 27 Apr.) Last week Mrs. John Herrian received a check of $2,000 from the "Modern Woodman" Order as payment of her husband's life insurance. It is said that Herrian is the first member of that order to have died. ********* A SAD MISFORTUNE. John Herian Adjudged Insane. Is Father of Seven Children. John Herian, of Two Rivers, was adjudged insane in county court this morning. For the past four years he has shown symptoms of insanity, but the malady has never assumed a violent form. He traveled quite extensively of late and on his return from a recent trip, he acted very strangely. Friends petitioned that he be taken care of and he was brought to this city last evening and taken to Oshkosh this morning. It is supposed that constant worry over business matters was the direct cause of his misfortune. The case is sad in that he is married and is the father of seven children, the youngest being but four years of age. He was rather unwilling to enter the hospital but the physicians who conducted the examination ordered that he be taken care of. The family is in comfortable circumstances.
