Andrew Herman

Andrew Herman, 69, of Jackson, father of Dr. Carlton Herman, Allenton, and brother of Mrs. Margaret Blinke, West Bend, died at St. Agnes hospital, Fond du Lac, on Thursday, June 6, following an operation. Funeral services were held at the Woldt Funeral home, Jackson, Monday at 2 p.m., the Rev. Edward Bergstrasser officiating. Burial was made in Last Home cemetery.

Born on a farm one-half mile east of Jackson, a son of the late Christopher and Anna Herman, deceased spent almost his entire life in that vicinity. He was married in Milwaukee in 1897 to Miss Sophie Liesenfelder of Germantown who survives him. Besides his beloved wife and son and sister mentioned above Mr. Herman is survived by another son, Edward, on the homestead; three daughters, Rose Schumacher, Esther Harpeng and Harriet Figi, all of Milwaukee; three sisters Elizabeth Heidner and Katie Baer of Milwaukee, and Carolyn Frank of Athens; two brothers, Christ of Jackson, and Jacob of Milwaukee; and six grandchildren.

Mr. Herman's death was a great shock to his family who expected him home from the hospital in a few days. He had been getting along nicely when he suffered a heart attack which proved fatal. Friends, relatives and acquaintances who knew him and loved him for the jolly, likeable fellow that he was attended the funeral which is said to be the largest held in Jackson for sometime. We extend our deepest sympathy to the bereaved wife and children.

Biography Attached letter written about Christopher Herman by his grandson, Carlton Herman is useful, although it appears to contain some date errors.

Specifically, we know from passenger lists, that Christopher's parents, Nicholas and Maria Elisabetha (Klumb) Herman, immigrated in 1846, along with Chrisopher, not two years later in 1848. Christopher was married to Anna Farber in 1852, rather than 1854. Christopher enlisted (drafted) in the Civil War in 1864, not 1863.

The reference to Chrisopher residing in Philadelphia for 2 years before coming to Wisconsin is intriguing and, though not independently verified yet, may well be true.3
Biography* From a biographical article about Christ Herman, Jr. "Washington County, WI Past and Present" 1912,:

...His father, Christ Herman, Sr., was born in Germany, in 1827, and was there reared to the age of eighteen years. In 1845 he emigrated to the United States, believing he would her find better opportunities than were afforded in his native land. He came direct to Washington county and purchased the land now owned by our subject [Christ Herman, Jr.] in Jackson township. After placing thereon a few crude improvements he cleared the land and prepared the soil for cultivation. His energies were thereeafter entirely devoted to the further development of his property, and he became known as one of the capable and prosperous agriculturalists of his community. In Washington county he was married to Anna Faber, also a native of Germany, and they became the parents of five sons and seven daughters, all of whom are married, with the exception of one son, Frank. The father passed away July 19, 1909, but the mother still survives and makes her home with her son Christ.

Obituary from the "West Bend News" 28 July 1909:

On Monday, July 19, 1909, occurred the death of Christoph Herman, one of the best and most widely known farmers in the county. He had reached the advanced age of 81 years, and death was due to heart trouble and wasting senility.

Mr. Herman was born at Agenthal, Germany, November 2, 1827. In 1845 he came to America with his parents and settled on a farm in the town of Jackson which the family took up from the government. In 1852 he maried Anne E. Faber, who with twelve children, survive him. They are - Anna (Mrs. Koepke) of Cabbott; Nic., Frank Andrew and Christoph of Jackson; Mary (Mrs. Henry Pautz) of Bonduel; Elizabeth (Mrs. H. Eifert), Catherine (Mrs. Geo. Baer) and Jacob of Milwaukee; Margaret (Mrs. Gust Benike) of Hartford; Caroline (Mrs. Theo Frank) of Athens; and Bertha (Mrs. John Koester) of Polk. He is also survived by one sister, Mrs. Hartman of Kewaskum.

After coming to America Mr. Herman's entire life was spent in the town of Jackson, and he became a highly esteemed and trusted citizen, serving as town clerk, supervisor and treasurer. When the Civil War broke out Mr. Herman enlisted in the Sixth Wisconsin Volunteer Infantry and participated in the battles of Hatcher's Run, Petersburg, and Appomatox.

The funeral took place last Thursday afternoon at two o'clock, the services being conducted under tha auspices of the Reformed church at Leich's Corners. Fullerton Post G.A.R. of West Bend, of which the deceased was a member, attended the funeral. To the bereaved family the News extends its sincere sympathy.

Biography* Information about Franz Reis and the settling of Jackson from the Jackson Historical Society listing at villageofjackson.com

The Village of Jackson is located just north of Milwaukee and south of West Bend, at the intersection of US Hwy 45 and State HWY 60, in the heart of the Kettle Moraine Area, and was named after President Andrew Jackson. Jackson is an ideal place for people to work and live. Jackson enjoys many of the conveniences of a large city, with a small town atmosphere. Wisconsin's preliminary population for 2010 is estimated at 6,753.

HISTORY

Prior to 1872, Jackson was one of three small, unincorporated hamlets located in the Towns of Jackson and Polk, none of which appeared to be more important than the other. Once known as Riceville (from the English misspelling of a German name) this little hamlet developed on 400 acres acquired by a German immigrant named Franz Reis.

When the railroad was built from Milwaukee to Fond du Lac, Reis offered the company a site for a depot. The railroad remained a vital force in the development of Jackson for years to come. Trains ran frequently and milk was transported to Milwaukee from the Jackson depot. Many people now living in Jackson can also recall commuting by train to high school classes in West Bend.

With the railroad passing through his farm and trains stopping at his front door, Reis saw an opportunity to profit from his gift. In 1873 Mr Reis built a large general store, saloon, and a grain elevator. A second elevator and store were built later, and before long the community had two blacksmith shops, a carpenter shop, a hardware store, and, according to a county history written in 1881, "a number of neat stone dwellings." There was The Franklin Roller Mills, Otto Greve's Blacksmith Shop, Sam Frank's Blacksmith Shop, J.G. Frank & Company Elevator, Weckmueller's Saloon, Gilbert's Saloon, Schoenbeck & Quade's Sawmill, Charles Frank's Harness Shop, Procknow's Shoe Shop and Barber Shop, Jahnke's Wagon Shop, Mayer's Carpenter Shop, Nick Herman's Carpenter Shop, Jenner's Hardware Store, Frank & Froehlich Store and Post office, Gumm's Lumber Yard, Held's meat market, Ziegler's Dance Hall, Ziegler's Hotel and Saloon, two creameries, a cheese factory, and Doctor Blank.

Biography* Robert C. Herman says he isn't sure of the exact story... but that apparently Layton was born Layton Freiberg and later (after his parents divorced) became Layton Harms. My working assumption is that his mother remarried and that he took the last name of his stepfather... but that needs to be checked through.

Wait for paperwork from Shirley Herman... but I think she told me that Layton's grandfather was Herman Koepke, born circa 1846, died 11/12/06... married to Anna Laabs, b. 1848, d 12/1/1919. She wants to know if this Koepke is related to an Ernst Friedrich William Koepke on Bob's side of the family.

Obituary published in The Builders Exchange News in June 1851, page 11:

Driving to his home on May 2, after a conference on business matters in Sheboygan, Layton R. Harms, past president of the Builders Exchange, was catapulted from N. Teutonia Avenue, into injuries that resulted in his death on Wedensday, May 9.

Mr. Harms, who had been president of the Exchange in 1945, had not been satisfied to take a back seat when his term had concluded. He remained on the Board of Directors and was reelected each time that his name appeared on the ballot. That is not only a proof of his great popularity among the membership, but a compliment to his leadership by the men who knew him best.

Ever since his first appearance in the Exchange in the 1930's he had been a constant visitor at the Exchange office. Since his election to the Board of Directors in the early 1940's he had not missed more than a half dozen sessions of that body in ten years, probably the only man who has ever served on the Board who had such faithful service on his record for such a long period.

In his record since his election as President of the Exchange in 1946, thee are these succeeding services to the Exchange: Member of the Finance committee for every year since that time; member of the Sports committee every since his first appointment there in 1947 (this committee has charge of the Bowling and Golf features of the Exchange). Also in 1947 and again in 1948 he served on the important Architects Plans and Specifications committee as well as serving as the Exchange representative on the Mayor's Advisory council, and in 1949 and 1950 he accepted appointment to the Classified Roster committee and was continued as a member of the Roster, Finance and Sports committee by appointment of the present Exchange president, Harvey E. Buchholz.

It was while serving as Early Shift President of the Builders Exchange Bowling league that he swung his black ball toward the pins at the Sport Bowl, and the ball flew to pieces in his hand, an example of how he put his heart and all his strength into every activity in which he participated.

Layt Harms was a highly colorful bowler, golfer and conference leader. He had a pleasing personality, an infectious smile and a ready wit that made him a popular favorite among all with whom he came in contact.

Born on Milwaukee's North Side, on October 26, 1903, he was just another student at the 21st Street school, but started working at the age of 12 years, when he chose to deliver papers for the Journal and Sentinel and court calendars for the Daily Reporter all through his years at North Division High school, from which he was graduated in the Science course in 1921. On to Maidson where he worked his way through the University of Wisconsin by waiting on table and reporting on legal information for the Daily Reporter. It was in June of 1925 that he received his B.S. degree in civil engineering there. While at the University studying and working, he still found time to participate in the University's track and field athletics.

His first job upon graduation was as a draftsman and engineer for the Worden-Allen Co., in Milwaukee. Something about the man Harms appealed to the company's officers and he was transferred to the sales department a year later. Another year went by and he became manager of the company's specialties division where he remained until his very end.

In addition to his terms as Second and First Vice President and President of the Exchange, he was also a member of the Triangle Fraternity, Engineering Society of Milwaukee, the Elks club and several Masonic bodies.

Here indeed was a man in whom his many many friends placed full confidence, listened to and follow his advice and who will be missed from the coucils of the Builders Exchange for many years to come.

He is survived by his widow, a daughter and a son, as well as other relatives. His home was 3149 N 47th St.8,1

MADISON - Laurie Mullen, age 58, passed away at home surrounded by family and friends after a determined battle against cancer, on Thursday, Feb. 23, 2012. She moved to Madison in 1984 and made this beautiful city her home for her remaining years. Although she left this world too soon, she led a full and meaningful life and will be missed by so many.

Her life was one of love and devotion to her family, friends, and to everyone she knew through work and volunteering. She birthed three compassionate children to whom she devoted many of her years raising. In 1991, she began working at Edgewood High School as a guidance counselor and spent the next 20 years touching the lives of many high school students and their parents. In 2005, she founded her dream: Turn Around Teen, a non-profit organization devoted to offering additional counseling and learning tools to young people and their families. She spent her limited free time volunteering at hospice, singing in the choir at church, leading youth workshops, and enjoying time with family and friends.

Her spirit lives on in her mother, Shirley Herman; her children, Kelly Mullen Desierto, Lindsey Stoller, and Brian Mullen; her two grandchildren; her four siblings and her numerous friends.

A funeral service will be held at GOOD SHEPHERD LUTHERAN CHURCH, 5701 Raymond Road, Madison, on Saturday, March 3, 2011, at 1 p.m. Visitation will begin at 11 a.m. at the church, with luncheon being served at noon.
