Calvin Street

Wilson county Kansas - 1892

A Pioneer

Calvin Street died at his residence in Cedar township, Monday, July
4th, 1892 of paralysis, aged 66. His health had not been good for some
years. Last spring he moved to Oklahoma but returned as he grew worse.
Two strokes of paralysis brought him to the brink and death was
expected. The funeral occurred from the residence Tuesday at 11 a.m.,
conducted by the Altoona lodge A. F. & A. M. Elder Thos. Miller preached
a short and appropriate sermon and the remains were interred in the
Hatler cemetery after the rites of the lodge. The deceased was also a
member of the G. A. R. and the obsequies were attended and assisted in
my members of that organization.

Mr. Street is survived by a wife (his second) and ten children, six
sons and four daughters, most of whom are grown.

Calvin Street was a native of Ohio, from whence he removed to Iowa.
During the rebellion he did service for his country as a member of
company E. 27th Iowa infantry. He enlisted May 22, 1862, and was
discharged June 7, 1865. A year or more of that time he was confined as
a prisoner of war at Cohaugah, Alabama.

He was a pioneer of Wilson County. In 1869 he settled in Cedar
township on the farm of 160 acres on which he so long resided. He
became well situated in this world's goods, but endorsing for erstwhile
friends left him financially embarrassed in his later years. However,
he left his family the provision of $2,000 life insurance. In all his
relations with his fellow men he was above reproach. All the old
settlers knew him and without exception say he was a good man and a
generous neighbor.

Mrs. Catherine Clark (nee Edwards) was born September 3, 1850 near South Garryowen, Jackson County, Iowa, and passed quietly away at the home of her daughter, Mrs. Peter Johnson, at the age of 77 years, 10 months and 9 days. On October 9, 1865 she was united in marriage to Richard Clark. This union was blessed with fifteen children, two of which departed this life in their childhood. The names of the 13 living children are; Mrs. Lingeard, of Strawberry Point, Iowa; Mrs. John Dodds of Maquoketa, Iowa; Mrs. Peter Johnson of Zwingle, Iowa; Azariah Clark of Bernard, Iowa; Ezra Clark of Maquoketa, Iowa; Mrs. A. Tracy of Binghamton, New York; Richard Clark of Goose Lake, Iowa, Mrs. Ora Massey of Dubuque, Iowa; Noah Clark of Louisiana; Mrs. Frank Sagers of Iron Hill, Iowa; William Clark of Ozark, Iowa; Charles Clark of Ozark, Iowa; and Harrison Clark of Calamus, Iowa.

Deceased spent her entire life in Jackson County, Iowa. Her husband preceded her in death 14 years ago. For the past 7 years she made her home with her daughter, Mrs. Peter Johnson. At the age of 23 years he was baptized in the Christain faith at the Advent Church in Iron Hill. Her general heath having been apparently good until last March, when she was stricken with such a severe attack of sickness which she was unable to overcome, but was forced to yield to death.

Mother Clark was very much devoted to her children and was held in high esteem by her neighbors and friends. Although she is now gone, yet she is not forgotten, but her memory still lingers. She is survived by a sister, Mrs. John Clark of Crabbtown, Iowa; and one brother, Sanford Edwards of Savannah, Illinois; 13 children, 89 grandchildren, 75 great-grandchildren, besides other relatives and a host of friends to mourn her death. All of the children except two attended the funeral services.

Funeral services were held at the home of the daughter Mrs. Peter Johnson, July 14, at 10:00 A.M., Rev. John Daake officiating. Interment was made at the Streets Cemetery.

AUGUST STORCK (click here to see photos)
from History of Washington County (Wisconsin) 1912

High on the list of Schleisingerville's enterprising business men stands the name of August Storck, one of the organizers of the Storck Brewing Company, of which he is the treasurer. His energies have not been confined to the business world alone, but he has figured prominently in the public life of the community, and is serving his second year on the board of county supervisors.

A son of one of Washington county's pioneers he was born in Schleisingerville, his natal day having been the 4th of May, 1882. He is of German extraction, his father, the late H. Charles Storck, having been born in Hesse-Darmstadt, where he was reared to the age of eighteen years. Irresistibly drawn to America by the wonderful stories which he had heard of the opportunities here afforded diligent and enterprising young men, he took passage for New York. He had learned the locksmith's trade in Germany but soon after his arrival in the United State he went to Rochester, New York, where he obtained employment in a machine shop.

After several years residence there he continued his journey westward to Milwaukee, accepting a position in the plant of the Blatz Brewing Company. By intelligent application to duty during the period of his connection with this company he managed to acquire a practical understanding of the principles of brewing and at the same time accumulated sufficient capital to enable him to engage in business for himself. In I878, he became associated with Mr. Hartig and they purchased the old Schleisingerville brewery. Mr. Hartig later sold his interest in the enterprise to other parties, but Mr. Storck was actively identified with the business until he passed away in 1903.

August Storck was reared at home, his early years being passed in the quiet routine of rural life. His elementary education was obtained in the public schools of his native town, following which he became a student in the Hartford high school. Upon terminating his student days he spent four years learning the machinist's trade, which he followed for a time in the west. After the death of his father he once more took up his residence in Schleisingerville, and here in 1904 he and his brothers organized the Storck Brewing Company, which they are still operating. They have met with success in the development of this enterprise and have made extensive improvements in the plant, including the erection of a fifteen thousand dollar brew house. They have also enlarged the bottling house and are contemplating making still further changes during the year 1912, thus making theirs one of the most complete and modern factories in this section. Mr. Storck was one of the promoters of the Washington County Telephone Company, and is a member of its board of directors.

In this village on the 6th of August, 1905, Mr. Storck was married to Miss Amanda Risch, who was born and reared in Milwaukee, and is the only daughter of Henry C. Risch. They reside on Storck street, where his brothers also live, and have greatly added to the appearance of that street by the erection of an attractive modern house. August Storck is actively interested in public affairs, but has never accorded his support to any one party, casting his ballot for the man he deems best qualified for the office to which he aspires, irrespective of political issues. He was elected to the board of supervisors in 1910, and has met the responsibilities of his position with unusual efficiency. He is far-sighted and practical, exercises as close supervision in the disbursement of the county's funds as he could employ in the expenditure of his own, and as chairman of the board occupies a prominent and influential position which. enables him to prove of great service to his fellow citizens. Mr. Storck has but recently attained the thirtieth anniversary of his birth, but he has utilized his time and opportunities to good advantage and is rapidly attaining a position which ranks him among the foremost business men of his community.
