Shawano in the news
March 19, 1886
The remains of Chris Wheeler of Dobbston, Langlade county, who died suddenly of heart disease while on a visit east with his family, some three weeks since, arrived on the express train Wednesday evening, and were taken in charge by the undertaker H. Bauerfiend, subject to the order of the G.A.R. post of this city for burial. The casket containing the body was taken from the undertaker's shop to the Post Hall Thursday morning where many who knew Mr. Wheeler in life had the mournful satisfaction of taking a last look of his features, placid and serene in death. The large funeral procession accompanied with appropriate music, started for the cemetery at 10:30 and by 1:00 PM the last and rites were concluded over another soldier's grave.
