Glenn Hoover - Obituary from Mondovi Herald - December 1918.

Glenn William Hoover, son of Mr. and Mrs. Joseph Hoover, was born March 4, 1901, on the home place, in the town of Albany, Pepin County, Wisconsin.  The place of his birth has always been his home.  He attended the Red School house, proving an apt scholar.  At the age of 12 he received the common school diploma, and a year later the first honor certificate.  Since then Glenn has worked on the farm at home or in the neighborhood.  He was considered a first-class hand, unusually strong for his age, capable, willing and careful.  He has always been ambitious, and had planned for the last year or two, going away to school.  Having a natural bent towards mechanics, he finally decided to attend the Sweeney Auto School., Kansas City, Missouri.  He left home November 30.  Only a week after his arrival he took cold.  In a few days it developed into pneumonia and proved fatal.  He passed away at the hospital Saturday, December 14, at 12:45 a.m.  His father who started for Kansas City the previous day was unable to reach him before the end but brought his son's remains back for burial.  The funeral took place on Wednesday, December 18 at 1 p.m. at the house where Rev. Pinkney, who conducted the funeral services, preached.  He also sang the solo "Tell Mother I'll be there,"  "Nearer My God to Thee" was rendered by Mr. and Mrs. W. A. Parker and Mrs. and Rev. Pinkney.  The tribute of flowers suggested the note of resurrection.  There was a large attendance considering all the circumstances.  Glenn is survived by his parents; four brothers; Wallace, Gale, Russell and Willie and three sisters; Eva, Bessie and Mildred who with many relatives and friends mourn his death.  It is hard to bear when youth is stricken on the  very threshold of life.  But there is comfort in the thought that Glenn was not unprepared.  He was baptized in the Christian faith a year ago last summer and seemed to be much in earnest in his Christian life.  He was a regular attendant at the church and was active in the work of the Sunday school.  As a son he was trust-worthy.  As a friend he was well liked by all who knew him.

Cornelius SilvernailMondovi, Wisconsin Newspaper - 4 May 1888

OBITUARY - May 4, 1888 - Mr. Cornelius SILVERNAIL died at the home of John UTSINGER in the Town of Albany, (Pepin Co., WI) last Monday.  Mr. Silvernail had been a resident of that town for many years and was 84 years of age at the time of his death.  Related monuments and markers.

[THANK YOU, descendant Duane E. Howard, for contributing this obituary November 27, 2004, and adding "Mrs. John UTSINGER was a granddaughter of Cornelius.  She was Effie Jane CRANDALL UTSINGER - daughter of Emerson CRANDALL and Jane M. SILVERNAIL...in the late 1970s I stopped by the newspaper office in Mondovi to locate this obit.  They handed me a roll of newspapers - a year's supply, I believe - and I opened it on their desk, located the obit, and they copied it for me in the old "white letters on black" paper.  Seems the entire newspaper archives had been stored in an old chicken house for years and years!"] 


Rebecca Murman Crapser Turner (1843-1919) - Obituary from Mondovi Herald, Mondovi, Wisconsin - 1919

"Obituary - Rebecca Murman Crapser Turner - (1843-1919)

"Who can find a virtuous woman?  Her price is far above rubies.  Her children rise up and call her blessed."

"Rebecca Murman was born March 23, 1843, in Hanover, Germany.  When she was five years old, her parents emigrated to this country and arriving in New York, lived there for about fifteen years.  In 1862 the family moved to Wisconsin and on October 12 of the same year, she married John D. Crapser.  Three children were born to them - Lida, Charles and Robert [Crapser].  On August 19, 1872 her husband died.  Four years later she was married to James I. Turner.  To this union seven children were born: Mrs. Fannie Hart, of Eau Claire; Mrs. Addie Norrish of Rock Falls; Mrs. Tina Young, of Fall City; Louis [Turner] and James [Turner] of Sidney Montana; Mrs. Ann Nogle of Mondovi; and Henry [Turner] who died of influenza last October in Sidney, Montana.  In 1887,  Mr. Turner died.  Left with a family of ten children and a mortgaged homestead, she faced the situation with characteristic  courage.  A pioneer  herself coming as she did over fifty years ago to the homestead which has always been her home, she had the pioneer spirit, which won through.  She brought up her children well.  She encouraged them.  She inspired them with the desire for the best things.  She helped them get an education.  Her life was remarkable in its devotion and in its unremitting toil.  Back of this devotion and this toil was her simple Christian faith.  She was baptized in the Lutheran Church, but she helped all by her gifts to the different churches.

"She was active and busy until within a few weeks of her death.  She passed away Sunday, February 2.  The death of her youngest son was a heavy blow which may have hastened her end.  After a long life of loving labor and sacrifice she has entered into "the rest that remaineth for the children of God."

"Both her husbands served their country in the Civil War.  [CLICK to view special Civil War marker for John D. Crapser and for James I. Turner; also view special G.A.R. - Grand Army of the Republic -  star near Civil War veteran marker for John D. Crapster.]

"Besides her sorrowing children, she is survived by two brothers; Henry Murman of Minneapolis and John of East Pepin.

"The funeral services held at the house were conducted by Rev. C. W. Pinkney, who took as a text her favorite scripture the 14th chapter of St. John's Gospel.  A quartet - consisted of Mrs. William Moe, Mrs. Hartwell Halverson, Miss Kleo Hurtley and Rev. Pinkney, sang fitting hymns.  Interment was made in the East Pepin Cemetery."
