       DESCENDANTS OF PIONEER MAKE OFFER [FAB 08.]
Mrs. Harriet Carmichael and F. A. Bonebright Offer Tract
       FOUNDED THIS CITY
       Would Have Cabin Known as the F. A. Bonebright Museum
       From a newspaper article, probably the Daily Freeman Journal, the article reads:
       "Mrs. Harriet Bonebright Carmichael and Frank A. Bonebright, her brother, descendants of the founder of Webster City, Wilson Brewer, last night at the meeting of the city council, offered the city a substantial portion of the homestead in the south part of the city to be used as a memorial park.
       The generous offer carried various stipulations which will be discussed by the grantors, members of the park commission and the city council at the next council meeting Jan. 16.
       Settled Here in 1853
       It was in 1853 that Wilson Brewer took out homestead papers when he and his family settled where Mr. and Mrs. Bonebright now live and what was then known as Newcastle.
       It is the wish of the grantors to create a perpetual memorial of the first settlement and founding of what is now Webster City and would have the city accept the property subject to the life use of the grantors -- Mr. and Mrs. Bonebright and Mr. and Mrs. Carmichael.
       The grantors set forth that the site be called the Wilson Brewer park" upon which is the log cabin erected by Mr. Bonebright and housing many relics of pioneer days. The cabin with its content would be known as the " F. A. Bonebright museum."
       It was specified that a site should be agreed upon for a cemetery to be known as "Burial Mound" and should be dedicated as a cemetery for Wilson Brewer and family and the grantors and a suitable tablet or monument be erected.
       Would Maintain Park.
       If accepted, the city must care for and maintain the place and the grantors express willingness to cooperate on any improvements and the like. Another condition is that if the city should accept the gift and should hire a caretaker, a lineal descendant of Wilson Brewer must be given preference if he should seek the position.
       The grantors desire that the log cabin shall be preserved in its present state by the city but the right is given to alter other buildings as may be necessary."
       From a newspaper article, probably the Daily Freeman Journal, "We Have With Us This Evening," the following:
       We have with us this evening, ladies and gentlemen of the newspaper audience, an old timer--a citizen who has lived in Webster City for 65 years. As a matter of fact, he was born right here a way back in the year 1868 when Webster City was pretty much of an isolated hamlet and its residents still composed largely of pioneers who had come out into this wild west to seek new lands and to build up Uncle Sam's rapidly moving western frontier. The gentleman to whom we refer is Frank A Bonebright, who tomorrow will celebrate his sixty-fifth birthday.
       Frank A. Bonebright was a donator, along with his sister, Harriet Bonebright, of the land that ultimately became the Bonebright Museum Complex and Brewer Park in Webster City, Iowa. (See brochure [FAB 02] and plans for the park [FAB 03]). These items are placed here with Frank A. Bonebright although they were not finished at the time of his death, yet they do honor the legacy that he deserved for his work to honor both the Bonebright and Brewer families.
       There is more of the story in the Obituary below:
       A death notice was published on March 05, 1934. It stated:
       "F. A. Bonebright, 65, who had been ill at his home for the past year, died at 2 o'clock this afternoon at his home at 202 Ohio Street.
       He had lived in this community all his life and for some years had been official weather and crop reporter for Hamilton County. His interest lay largely in local pioneer history, which culminated two years ago when a substantial portion of the old Bonebright homestead was given the city as a memorial park.
       Details of his death, funeral announcements, etc. will be given tomorrow. Foster's in charge. [FAB 04.]
       From the Obituary [FAB 05] is quoted the following:
       "Born in a Pioneer Cabin"
       There is probably no one living who took a more lively interest in the pioneer history of this community than Mr. Bonebright. His grandfather, Wilson Brewer, came her in 1848 [1850] and erected on the site of the present hospitable Bonebright home the first hewed log cabin built in what was then a wild and unsettled country.
       And it was in this same pioneer cabin that Frank first saw the light of day April 16, 1868. Shortly after this cabin had been erected Wilson Brewer, its builder, founded Webster City. It is a far cry from that little band of pioneers in the early fifties to Webster City of the present day. Yet it is represented in the lives of men by less than three generations.
       Franks regard for the early settlers and his deep interest in pioneer history, tangibly shown in the large pioneer museum he had collected, were among the outstanding characteristics of his life. Reared in a pioneer atmosphere, he never forgot the trials of those first settlers, their simple modes of life, their rugged individuality, their struggles for a livelihood, their honest poverty of material things, but their abundance of pleasures, unknown today, given them by Old Mother Nature and hard and constant daily toil.
Reconstructs Cabin.
       He was full of the lore of those early men and women who, with all their belongings in a prairie schooner, traveled with ox teams from their homes in the east to this trackless prairie - people who came west to get land of their own whereon to erect homes and rear their families and who laid the foundations of what is now recognized as the farming belt of the world, the food producing center of America.
       All this was ingrained in Frank - a part of his very nature. And so it was but natural that a few years ago he began to look about for parts of the old Brewer log cabin. On the Froning farm he found a part of it and on the old Kamrar farm south of the city he found parts of another cabin. He bought them both and re-erected in his yard an original log cabin from the two - containing parts of the first log cabin ever erected on what is now the site of Webster City.
Then he began his collection of pioneer tools, household goods and other things reminiscent of the pioneer. Into this cabin he had gathered as fine a collection as can be found anywhere in the state outside a state-supported museum. People come from miles around to visit it.
       Memorial for City
       In January, 1932, Mr. Bonebright and his sister, Mrs. Harriet M. Carmichael, gave to the city a substantial portion of the old Bonebright homestead containing the log cabin and the complete museum collection. It was the wish of the grantors to create a perpetual memorial of the first settlement of his city. The gift, subject to a life lease of the grantors, was later formally accepted by the city.
       His flare for museum collections went further back, too, than the white pioneers. Down on the Des Moines river he uncovered a cache containing an outstanding collection of Indian arrow heads, stone spears, stone hide scrapers and similar articles. Apparently they had been cached by one Indian or a small group of Indians and for some reason never retrieved by them. This collection he added to that in the log cabin.
       In the Annals of Iowa, 19 (1934): np. [FAB 10], the following obituary was printed:
       "FRANK A. BONEBRIGHT was born in Webster City, Iowa, April 16, 1868, and died in the city of his birth March 5, 1934. His parents were Thomas Blackwell Bonebright and Sara Jane (Brewer) Bonebright, honored pioneer residents of Webster City, the father, a member of the Sprit Lake Relief Expedition in 1857, the mother a daughter of Wilson Brewer, founder and promoter of the town of Newcastle, now Webster City. Frank obtained a common school education and during his earlier manhood followed farming. Later he was in the employ of Webster City and became an excellent electrician. For the ten years previous to his death he was official weather and crop reporter for Hamilton County. During the last several years of his life he devoted much of his time to acquiring a collection of articles illustrative of the pioneer times in his locality. He secured the remains of the old log cabin in which he was born and re-erected it in his own back yard, and assembled there the results of his years of collections of tools, household goods, contrivances of pioneers, and local prehistoric specimens. In January, 1832, he and his sister Harriet M. Carmichael, gave to Webster City a substantial portion of the old Bonebright homestead containing the log cabin and the collected museum." [FAB 10.]

207        In the 1870 U.S. Federal Census, Hamilton County compilation, Margaret is a three year old, white, single female. She lives with her father, Benjamin R., and step mother, Judith Brewer. They live in Cass Township, Hamilton County, Iowa. She also lives with two siblings, a half-sister, Jane E., and a half brother, Charles E., who was just born. She was born in Iowa. [BRB 17.]
       In the 1885 Iowa State Census, Margaret E. Brewer is a 19 year old, white, single female. She was born in Iowa of parents who were born in Indiana (father) and Illinois (mother). At this time, she is living with her father (Benjamin), two-step brothers (Charles and Frederick), and one step-sister (Annetta). They are all living on Superior Street, Ward 4, Webster City, Boone Township, Hamilton County, Iowa. [BRB 19.]
Files on 20 April 1891, Margaret "Maggie" Brewer both lots 8 & 9, block 14, Webster City, Boone township, Hamilton County, Iowa from W. B. and Naomi Howard. [MEB 02.]
       [It is interesting that at this time Margaret Brewer Young was the purchaser (purchase actually signed on 18 April 1893) using the name Margaret Young since she was married on the 20th of April 1893 -DLL.]
       Margaret Brewer Young sold lots 8 & 9, block 14, Webster City, Boone Township, Hamilton County to Dennis House on 27 September 1893, the same day that David Young sold this property to Margaret Brewer. [MEB 01.] [MEB 02.]
       This sale must have been a settling of property prior to a divorce. While there is not record of a divorce between David Young and Margaret, and, no marriage record found for a marriage between Margaret and David House, Margaret was married to Dennis House.
       Margaret and Dennis House sold lots 8 & 9, block 14, Webster City, Boone Township, Hamilton County, Iowa as filed on July 5, 1895. The sale was through warranty deed. [MEB 03.]
       In the 1900 U.S. Federal Census, Maggie [Margaret E. Brewer Ellis Young] is the 29 year old, wife of Dennis House. She is a white, married, female, married to Dennis for 6 years and the mother of four children. She lives with her husband Dennis, one son (Lloyd) and three daughters (Irene, Marie, Hellen) in Junction Township, Greene County, Iowa. She was born in Iowa of parents that were born in Iowa [Her father was born in Indiana; her mother in Iowa]. She reads, writes, and speaks English. [DH 03.]
       [In this census, Maggie's birthday is listed as September 12, 1870. It is hard to know if this date is correct. I would like to make it her birthday, but I have birthdays that range from 1865-71. It is hard to know if this birthday is correct. Either the census takers are providing erroneous information for some reason or Margaret herself may have done so. I cannot be certain this date is correct. Another reason for doubting the date is that if it is 1870, then her mother cannot be Elizabeth Frakes. So, I will not use this date as her birthday unless I have other proof.]
       In the same household, we find a servant by the name of Beulah Snyder. Beulah is a white, single, female, born August 02, 1886 and is 13 years old. She was born in Iowa of parents who were born in Illinois (father) and Kentucky (mother). She reads, writes, and speaks English. Her employment is that of a servant. [DH 03.]
       In the 1910 U.S. Federal Census, Margaret [Margerite] is a 39 year old, white, married female, married to Dennis House. According to this census, she has been married to Dennis for 20 years, has given birth to seven children of which six are living. It appears that Lloyd is no longer living with the family; there is another child that must have been born and died in the meantime between the 1900 and 1910 censuses. Living with Margaret and Dennis are four daughters (Irene, Marie, Helen, and Margerite Jr.) and one son (Niel). There is no recognition of the daughter by David H. Young. In fact, there is an indication by Margaret's information that the marriage with Dennis is a first marriage, when it is actually the third. The family lives in the 2nd Ward, El Reno, Canadian County, Oklahoma. Margaret reads, writes, and speaks English. She does not have an occupation. She was born in Iowa of parents that were born in Iowa - true for the mother, not for the father (Indiana). [DH 04.]
       In the 1920 U.S. Federal Census, Margaret is a 48 year old, white, widowed female. She owns her own home free and clear. She was born in Iowa of parents born in the United States (Indiana-father; Iowa-mother). She reads, writes, and speaks English. She has no occupation. She lives with a son (Neal) and a daughter (Margaret) in Justice Precinct 6, Harlingen, Cameron County, Texas. [MEB 04.]
       In 1921, Margaret appears in the obituary for her father, Benjamin Roland Brewer, as Margaret House from Harlingen, Texas. [BRB 07.]
       I cannot find her after 1921.

       In the 1910 U. S. Federal Census, I have found a Mrs. Julia House in a "Home for the Aged" in Des Moines, Iowa. I hypothesize that this is Julia O'Neil House. She is 68 years old, fitting the age appropriately. She is a white, widowed female, living through her own income. She speaks, reads, and writes English. The only aspect that is troubling about this hypothesis is that the information indicates that she was born in New York and that her parents' place of birth is unknown. While there is no indication the obituary below that Julia might have been in a nursing home in Des Moines, there is also no indication of her recently living in Webster City. So, the hypothesis might work. [DLL.]

She was born in Wisconsin of parents who were born in Canada (father) and New York State (mother). Her marriage to Oscar E. Ham is her second marriage; she and Oscar have been married but one year. Alma reads, writes, and speaks English. She has no employ outside the home. Alma lives with her husband, Oscar, and her son, Russell H. Sullivan (Sr.). The family lives in Bowdle, Edmunds County, South Dakota. (There are only a few days between the recording of this census in SD and another census recording in which Russell H. Sullivan (Sr.) is found in Wisconsin - the reader should be aware of that matter.) [HOE 03.]
       In the 1930 U. S. Federal Census, Alma Amo Sullivan Ham Triant is a 51 year old, white, married female. She was born in Wisconsin of parents who were born in French Canada and New York State.

She is working on her own account, considering herself employed. Alma lives with her husband, Nicholas Triant at 610 South Baldwin, Ward 3, Madison, Dane County, Wisconsin. [TN 01.]

       The reason for the addition of all the residences for Alma Amo Sullivan Ham Triant and the claim against her file at the social Security Administration is that no death date has been established or found for her. It may be that she died in Madison, Dane County, Wisconsin between 1941 and 1959, but there is no clear evidence of that. Someone will have to provide that evidence in the future. I am making that statement because others have indicated death around 1910 in South Dakota and with what I have provided she continued to live into the 1940s for sure, if not beyond. [DLL.]

       According to Mrs. Charles B. Fletchall [ACB 02], Charles died of typhoid fever in late 1898. And, the obituary [CP 01] supports that contention.
       The Death of Chas Pierce:
       Friday afternoon at one o'clock, at his residence one mile south and four miles east of the city, the death of Mr. Chas. Pierce occurred. He had been ill for the past two weeks, afflicted with typhoid fever, which disease caused his death.        Mr. Pierce was a prosperous farmer, living on the Widow Burton's farm at the time of his death. Seven years ago he was married, and is the father on one child. The funeral was held Sunday afternoon at the residence, and the remains interred in the cemetery in this city (See photo in scrapbook of the gravestone of Charles, Isabel, and an infant son), under the ritual of the Modern Woodmen, of which body Mr. Pierce was a member, carrying a policy of $2,000. The family are trying hard to secure Pastor Artman, formerly of the church of Kamrar, to conduct the services, but it is not known yet whether they will be able to find him. The family have the sympathy of the community in their sad affliction. His death coming after such a short illness makes the affliction seem doubly hard to bear.
       After three weeks of intense suffering, Chas. Pierce died at his home four miles south-east of this city, December 29, 1899, at the age of twenty-six years, ten months, and one day. The deceased leaves a wife and one child to mourn their loss. Charles was the second in a family of six boys, of which the remaining five, with her parents, Mr. and Mrs. W. H. Pierce, all living, this being the first break in the family. At the age of sixteen, Charles united with the Baptist church of this place, of which he has ever since been a member. Nearly five years ago he was united in marriage to Miss Belle Smith.
       Mr. Pierce was widely known and loved by all in the community in which he lived. His life was one of sunshine and happiness. His sickness was attended by a great deal of suffering, which rendered him unconscious most of the time for the last three days prior to his death. A few hours before he died, he called all in the house to his bedside and told them he was going home, and that he could see the heavenly city with its shining streets. After telling each one what he wish them to do, and asking them to be true to the Master, he sang with as clear a voice as when in health a verse of the three following hymns: "Nearer My God to Thee," O Happy Day," and "Tis so Sweet to Trust in Jesus." After bidding them all good-bye, he again became unconscious, and after a few house he passed away.
       The funeral services were largely attended by friends and relatives, Reverends Harter, of the Baptist church of this place, and Hoelcher, of the M. E. Church of Kamrar, conducting the services at the home. The regular form of the M. W. A., of which he was a member, was carried out at the grave.

       Ernest Hoffman was killed with his son, Otto, by the Northwestern Passenger Train, the 400. The Ernest Hoffman family lived about a mile from the Arthur Lange family. There were no witnesses to the accident, according to Walter H. Hoffman [WHH 02]. The purpose of the car trip was to purchase some seconds of canned pears from the canning factory at Humbird, Wisconsin.
       An article about this accident was published in the Eau Claire Leader-Telegram on July 20, 1938. It reads:
       Farmer, Son Killed When 400 Hits Car
       "Ernest Hoffman, 60, town of Cleveland, Jackson county farmer and his son, Otto 12, were killed instantly by the north-bound 400 passenger train of the Northwestern road at the canning factory crossing here about 7:30 this evening.        Attempting to cross just ahead of the oncoming train, the car stalled and was struck before the occupants had an opportunity to get out. They were the only ones in the car.
       The car was demolished and the bodies were thrown clear, lighting 100 feet from the crossing. Wreckage was strewn for over 250 feet. While the debris was being cleared away, the train was delayed for half an hour.
       Coroner Peter Ludvig of Jackson county, after an investigation of the incident, announced that no inquest would be held.
       Witnesses to the accident said that Hoffman may have stopped his car on the tracks, under the impression that the train was on the other of the pair of tracks. The crossing is immediately beside highway 12, which parallels the tracks at this point. It is unprotected by bell or gates. The next crossing, a few rods south, has a bell but as the train had passed there the bell had stopped ringing. This was the third fatal car-train crash at this crossing within recent years.
       The victims of the accident are survived by the wife and mother and four other children. Mr. Hoffman was prominent in his community and had been treasurer of the town of Cleveland for several years. His farm is about seven miles west of Humbird and three miles south of Fairchild. [EH 06.]
