A Healthy Trio of Boys

Youngsters Give Promise of Thriving—Weight 16 Pounds

Albert Seering of the Schweers Hardware Store is the proud father of three fine triplets, all boys, presented to him by Mrs. Seering last Friday.  They total upon aggregate of 16 pounds and individually weigh four and a half, five and a half and six pounds.  This is a very handsome showing and entitles Mr. Seering to a resolution of respect by the anti-race suicide club.  The names are William, John and Albert, being named after Mr. Speering and the two grandfathers.

The boys are all healthy and promise to make matters lively for all concerned around the Seering home.  The parents are very happy over this rare good fortune which runs the supply of boys in the family up to four and a fine male quartet they are.

Mr. Seering contemplates the purchase of a finger ring with the names of each little owner engraved therein to keep them in due possession of the names assigned to them.

This is the second set of triplets in the history of Shawano County, the other being three girls at some 15years ago.  The parents were Mr. and Mrs. Frank Sebert.

Old Soldier Gone

Chris Hill Dies Monday at his Home in Leon, Ia.

Buried at Embarrass

Funeral Today under Auspices of Shawano Masons

 

News was received by relatives in this city that Christopher Hill had died Monday afternoon at 3:00 at his home at Leon, Iowa. Mr. Hill had been confined to his bed for several months, and notice of his death was not unexpected. The cause is said to have been a general breakdown, incident to old age. The remains will be brought to Embarrass today (Thursday) for internment in the old family lot in the cemetery there. The funeral arraignments and services will be in the cemetery there. The funeral arraignments and services will be in charge of the Masons, he having been a member of Shawano Lodge No. 170, F,& A. M. for many years. A large delegation from the local order left for there this morning. The funeral will take place at 2:30 this afternoon.

Mr. Hill was born June 22, 1836, in Steuben County, N.Y. He came to Wisconsin in early manhood with his parents, settling at Winneconne, where he married Miss Rachael Rice. After the war he settled in the town of Mattson, Waupaca County, His wife died there and he was afterwards married to Miss Eva Rice, a sister of his first wife. He moved to the Log Cabin, at Markton, Langlade county, where he  conducted a hotel and summer resort for several years, The place became well and favorably known to the many lumbermen and others who had occasion to stop there. He also carried on extensive logging operations during his residence there, as he did for many years afterward, at one time being in partnership with T. H. Dodge (now Deceased) under the firm name Hill and Dodge, His logging operations were always confined to the Wolf river valley. From the Log Cabin he moved to Shawano, where he resided for many years, was mayor of the city in 1892, and was postmaster from 1890 to 1894, also conducted the Murdock House for several years. He went to Waupaca and later he was married to Miss Annie Wesley, of Green Bay, the ceremony having taken place in this city.

He again moved to Shawano, and was elected and was elected sheriff in 1904, serving out his term of two years, and had the honor of being of being the oldest sheriff in the state at the time.

At the close of his term as sheriff, Mr. Hill decided to leave Shawano again, and in the spring of 1907, after having visited several places in the west, finally located at Leon, Iowa, where he remained until his death.

Mr. Hill leaves besides his widow and daughter, Evelyn, who are well known in this city, one daughter by his first wife, Mrs. Arthur Jaynes of Antigo, two brothers, Albert of Waukechon and Edward of this city, two sisters, Mrs. Clark of Embarrass and Mrs. Brinkerhoff of Gault of Iowa.

 

Chris Hill enlisted at Oshkosh in 1862 and served to the close of the war, being a member of Co, B, 21st Wis. Vol. Inf. His record as a soldier was a brilliant one, it being a marked for bravery and patriotism. In fact Mr. Hill was noted for his patriotic and public spirit. He was a member of the G.A.R. and often met with them at their reunions, especially with those of the 21st Wisconsin. An occasion of great pride to Mr. Hill was the welcome the citizens of Shawano gave the 21st Wis., on the occasion of their reunion in this city during his incumbency as mayor.

The jovial, open-hearted Chris Hill was known to the majority of residents in both this and Shawano counties, and the news of his death will be a thing of sorrow to these many friends. Deceased was born in Steuben county, N. Y. June 22, 1836, and came to Wisconsin in early manhood, settling at Winneconne. At the out break of the Civil War he volunteered his services with Co B 21st Wis and leaves a brilliant record as a soldier. Upon his return from the war he located in the town of Mattson, later going to Langlade county where he conducted a summer resort for several years and also carried on extensive logging operations. From there he went to Shawano, was mayor of the city in 1892 and postmaster from 1890 to 1894. In 1894 he moved to Waupaca where he conducted the Lake View House and returning to Shawano was elected sheriff of that county in 1894. At the conclusion of his two year term his health being impaired, he decided to try the west and after traveling to the coast and looking the country over, returned east as far as Iowa and located. Deceased was thrice married and is survived by the present wife and daughter Evelyn and one daughter by the first wife, Mrs. Arthur Jaynes of Antigo, besides two brothers and two sisters.

The remains were brought back to Embarrass for internment, the funeral taking place from the Congregational church in that village, Thursday afternoon, under the auspices of Shawano Lodge No 170, F. & A. M. a large delegation of Masons from the city attending.

Mrs. William Burr Wounded By Her Divorced Husband

Mrs. William Burr was shot and dangerously wounded by her divorced husband at Gresham at 6:30 o’clock Monday evening.  The ball entered the woman’s back, passed through the body and came out near the lower rib on the right side.  Her chance for recovery is good.  William Burr, who did the shooting, made no effort to escape.  Witnesses of the affair took away from him the 38 caliper revolver he had used and at 10:30 he was in the custody of Sheriff Wilson, who, accompanied by Dr. Ragan, drove to Gresham from this city.

The prisoner was brought to Shawano and lodged in the county jail.  At eleven o’clock Tuesday forenoon he was taken before Justice O. Andrews to answer the charge of assault with intent to kill.  Eberlein & Eberlein appeared for the prisoner and District Attorney Werner for the state.  Because of the uncertainty of the woman’s condition, the hearing was adjourned until Friday, the 18 of October.  The amount of the bond was fixed at $35,000.  In default of bail the prisoner was returned to jail.

Mr. and Mrs. Burr were married 22 years ago, and have long lived on a farm near Gresham.  She is a half-breed member of the Stockbridge tribe; he is a white man.  They have six children, all of whom except the oldest son live at home on the farm.  Last June Mrs. Burr secured a divorce from her husband on the ground of cruel and inhuman treatment and drunkenness, and was given the custody of the children.  The property was in her name.

Burr went to live in Beaver Dam early in the summer, but later returned to this vicinity (in July, he says) and for several weeks past he has been in Gresham and has called occasionally at the farm, remaining there some times two or three days to see the children, to help with the crops and to “fix up things” according to his story told to a Journal reporter at the county jail.  Several weeks ago he called upon Dreier & (?), Shawano lawyers, to be advised as to the possibility of reopening the divorce proceedings.  This step toward reconciliation may not have been made with the woman’s knowledge and consent, but it is reported that a remarriage was in prospect until outsiders interfered to spoil the plan.

Burr was at the farm on Monday and accompanied the woman to town.  At Gresham, he says, she commenced drinking in the saloons against his protest and refused several times to go back to the farm with him.  His story is that she coupled such refusals with language abusive of him.  These things, he says, together with evil reports that had come to him regarding the woman’s behavior during his absence at Beaver Dam, led directly to the shooting.  He says he fired but one shot, others claim that two were fired.  The revolver that was surrendered to the sheriff had one empty chamber, one exploded shell and three loaded ones, one of the (?) being between the empty chamber and the empty shell.  Burr’s account of just what he did at the time of the shooting and immediately thereafter is somewhat hazy.

Wm. Burr Shoots Divorced Wife

Wm. Burr shot his divorced wife at Gresham Monday evening at about 6:30 o’clock. The facts as we have been able to learn of them are that Mrs. Burr had been around town considerable that day and he wanted her to go home and attend to the children.  They were in a saloon and he followed her out and he shot her while near Nick Marx’s place.  The bullet struck her in the back and Dr. Ragan took it out of her breast.  He used a thirty-eight caliber revolver.  Last March Mrs. Burr was granted a divorce from her husband and was given custody of the children, there being six, the oldest 20 years old and the youngest 5 years.  It is said that they had not got along well together and she had been living a fast life and did not give proper care to the children, which he did not like.  Other men were paying her attention and it is claimed that he shot her while insanely jealous.

Sheriff Wilson was at once summoned and found Burr at Gresham and brought him to Shawano and placed him in the county jail.  The examination was held before Justice Andrews Tuesday morning at 11 o’clock, but as the victim was in a serious condition it was thought best to postpone the same for ten days to await developments and see whether she lives or dies, which will put a different phase on the matter.

Mr. and Mrs. Burr were married on the 19 day of June, 1886, and the divorce proceedings claim that they have had trouble the past five years.  She has Stockbridge Indian blood and makes her home on the reservation.

At about 5 o’clock Thursday morning the people of this village were aroused by loud talk and shouting upon the street.  Herman Nedden, without any known cause or previous warning had become violently insane.  He has always been more or less melancholy, and since the death of his brother August this tendency has been more marked.  It is thought that worry over this loss may have been the predisposing cause.—Tigerton Chronicle
