Kiel Record - 1915 DUFFY, IRENE POISON, TAKEN BY MISTAKE FOR HEADACHE TABLET, CAUSE DEATH OF FORMER LOCAL Miss Irene Duffy, Graduate of 1913 Here, Dies at Milwaukee as Result of Bi-Chloride of Mercury Taken by Mistake a Week ago- Message Causes Sorrow Bi-chloride of mercury, one of the deadliest of poisons, taken by mistake for a headache tablet a week ago caused the death of Miss Iren (sic) Duffy, a former Manitowoc girl, at Milwaukee last night. Messages received today announced the death of Miss Duffy at a Milwaukee hospital, and the news was received with profuond (sic) sorrow by a large circle of friends. Miss Duffy was 20 years of age. The fatal potion was given Miss Duffy by a younger sister whom she had asked to secure a headache tablet for her. The headache tablets were in a cabinet where a brother of Miss Duffy had placed a small box of bi-chloride of mercury tablets which he had been given for use in treatment of boils on his arm and by mistake one of these was given to Miss Duffy who, believing it to be headache medicine, swallowed the tablet. She was taken ill and removed to the hospital where physicians, after learning the character of the tablet taken, said that there was no hope of recovery. Bi-chloride of mercury is usually put up in 7 1/2 grain tablets and physicians say that one is sufficient to cause the death of three persons and that there is no known remedy for the poison. A few years ago the country was stirred by the story of a Georgia millionaire's fight for life against the poison. Miss Duffy was a daughter of Mrs. Mary Schaefer, nee Mary Duffy, who up to a few months ago was a resident of this city and engaged in the hotel business. Miss Duffy graduated from the local schools in 1913 and attended Milwaukee Normal school. She had made her home here most of her life and since the marriage of her mother at Milwaukee, had resided there. Besides her mother she is survived by three brothers; Frank, Lawrence and Ralph and one sister, Eillien. It is presumed that the burial will be held at Milwaukee.

HENRY ERICKSON WAS ONE OF THE BEST KNOWN FAMILIES IN TOWN Mrs. Sophia Erickson, (nee Olson) beloved wife of Henry Erickson, died at her home in Valders, Wisconsin, October 11th after ten days of illness of Spinal Meningitis. In the early spring she had an attack of flu and was at the hospital a few weeks for treatment.

Olson, was born Nov. 28th 1875 in Cato, Manitowoc county. Was confirmed by Rev. Alfsen at Manitowoc in 1891. In 1895 she moved with her parents to Lessor.
