LANGE, Captain O.G. died at his home, No. 292 Irving avenue, early yesterday morning. He was 82 years of age and had been honored by the Swedish residents of the city on may occasions, having been the first Swede to set foot on Chicago soil. He was an honorary member of nearly every Swedish society in the city and a short time ago a bronze bust of him was unveiled with elaborate ceremonies in the club-room on one of the most influential societies. Captain Lange was born July 4, 1811 in Gothenberg, Sweden. He came to America Sept 30, 1824, residing in Boston until 1838 when he came to Chicago. His first work in the city was as a teacher, but he soon drifted into commercial lines and established the first drug store near Chicago on the lines of the Illinois and Michigan canal, then being constructed. Shortly after he went into the foundry business at Kenosha, Wis. where he lived from 1856 to 1860. In the latter year he established a similar business at Kingsbury and Michigan streets. The last twenty years of his life were spent in the life insurance business. Captain Lange's title came to him through his connection with the United States and English navies just previous to his coming to Chicago. The funeral will be held at 10 o'clock tomorrow afternoon at his late residence. It will be attended by representative of every Swedish society in the city. Burial will take place at Waldheim.

LIFTON, LLOYD J. "Kayo" - PLAYED PIANO WITH JAZZ GREATS By Rummana Hussain, Tribune Staff Writer, March 21, 2000 As a teenager, Lloyd J. Lifton wowed his younger cousin with the boogie-woogie numbers he pounded out on the piano in the basement of his family's home in Chicago's Austin neighborhood. "After watching him play piano, I started collecting records," said Ken Recu, Mr. Lifton's cousin. Mr. Lifton, 75, noted jazz pianist whose love of music moved him across the country, died Monday, March 13, at his residence in Taos, N.M. "Music was the dominant influence in his life," his brother Robert said. Born in Chicago, Mr; Lifton, known as "Kayo" by family and friends, was raised in the Austin and Hyde Park neighborhoods. He played piano with his class band at Hyde Park High School and later at the University of Chicago. He graduated from the university in 1946. Mr. Lifton served in World War II for several months, but was discharged after he developed a skin rash because he was allergic to wool. Even when he was in the hospital for his condition in Charleston, S.C., Mr. Lifton played on the hospital piano, entertaining patients and staff. Once back in the Windy City, he performed many nights in several local clubs. Mr. Lifton moved to New York in the 1950s so he could train with the famous late jazz pianist Lennie Tristano. As a student, Mr. Lifton created a longtime friendship with his blind mentor and spent just as much time running errands for the famous artist as he did studying with him. "He used to write his bills, pay his checks. He became Mr. Tristano's helper," his brother said. Mr. Lifton also took Tristano to Europe where the two toured for about a month in the 1960s. Mr. Lifton eventually enrolled in a university in New York and received a degree in social work in the 1960s. For several years, he worked as social worker in the days and performed at many New York clubs in the evenings. The only sibling to leave Chicago, Mr. Lifton was not one to succumb to wanderlust. Because he did not want to travel, he never joined any bands. He did, however, work with many well-known musicians during his career, including saxophonist Lee Konitz and William Russo, currently of the Chicago Jazz Ensemble. In 1983, Mr. Lifton released a solo recording titled "Summer of 81" on Stash Records. Tired of the congestion and fast pace of the city, Mr. Lifton moved to Santa Fe. 15 years ago. Two years ago, he relocated to Taos and was performing at a club there. Other survivors include a son, Keith; a daughter, Heather Kellner; a sister, Gladys L. Wolff; and three grandchildren. The family is planning a memorial service for mid-April. [Chicago Tribune, March 21, 2000 - Submitted by Source #96]

LOMBARD, Benjamin --- The Chicago papers of Saturday chronicled the death of Mr. Benjamin Lombard in that city, which took place last Friday morning at 188 Eugenie street. Mr. Lombard had been ailing for some time, but the immediate cause of his death was paralysis of the brain. He was a native of Truro, Mass., born in 1815. While yet a lad, of an adventuresome disposition, he came westward to Pike county, engaged in merchandising and pork packing. Selling out his interest there in 1840 or '42 he came to Henry, where he embarked in the real estate business, and with such business sagacity and success, that he soon was numbered among the wealthiest of the land owners here. He owned land in all parts of the county, dealt extensively in land patents and tax titles, and transacted a very large business. He took a lively interest in the organization of Henry into a township and a city, and was one of its leading influential men, though would never accept a public office. The C.R.I.&P.R.R. depot was built on land donated by him to the railroad company, and two additions to the city bear his name. The leading hotel here also bore his name, and flourished grandly until a fire destroyed it, but was not rebuilt. The Durham mansion and grounds, one mile west of the city, were formerly known as the Lombard place, being the finest country seat at the time (1850) in this part of the state.

Afterwards he moved to Chicago, where he engaged in real estate speculations, and become very wealthy. In the days of his prosperity he devoted land and money to found a Universalist College at Galesburg, and it was named Lombard University in honor of its founder. In 1859 he became president of the Union Insurance and Trust Co., which had an office in his own building, the Lombard block on Monroe street. In February, 1864, Mr. Lombard helped to organize the Fourth national bank, and was elected its first president. In 1870 he was president of the Real Estate, Loan & Trust Co., afterwards the Franklin bank. The fire of 1874 was a severe blow to Mr. Lombard, sweeping away the accumulations of years, and he never afterwards recovered a tithe of what he lost. He speculated again, however, and was connected with the national Life Insurance Co., as president and manager until its failure - the assets at the time of its wind-up being almost nil. Some years later Mr. Lombard went to Texas for his health, being completely broken down. He returned from Texas and loved for awhile at Shenandoah. The at Galesburg, where he took charge of a hotel. Six months ago he returned to Chicago in broken health, settling his house in order, and finally yielding up his life at the home of one of his children. Mr. Lombard was married the third time, and his last wife and six children - four sons and two daughters survive him. One of the sons is a cadet midshipman in the navy. The remains were taken to Boston, Mass., for interment. [Taken From the Henry Republican, May 25, 1882, Submitted by Src #25]

LONERGAN, John --- one of the pioneers of Chicago, who was identified with several of the earliest improvements of the West, died last week, at the home of his son-in-law, Joseph HOGAN, 519 West Monroe St., Chicago. His death, while directly attributed to a light stroke of paralysis sustained recently, came as the result of a long and active life reaching beyond the years usually allotted to man. Deceased was a native of County Tipperary, Ireland, and was born April 1st, 1807. At the age of 16 he came to this country with his parents. A brief stay was made in N. Y. city, and the family then moved to Pittsburg, and Mr. LONERGAN, with three of his brothers, engaged as contractors in the construction of the Erie Canal. They were among the most successful of the contractors thus engaged, and upon the completion of their work they turned their attention to railroad building, a business in its infancy. Extensive contracts were secured by them on the first railroad extending west of the Alleghany Mountains, a branch of the Pennsylvania system, and in connection with this they constructed the Grant Street tunnel in Pittsburg.
In 1838, he married Miss Agnes MURPHY, in Pittsburg, and then came to Chicago, at that period the state had in contemplation the Ill. and Mich. Canal, and Mr. LONERGAN was one of the first to file a bid for it construction. He was awarded two sections of the work between Lemont and Lockport, but before he completed his work the state abandoned the improvement for lack of funds. In 1847 he moved to Batavia (Kane County, IL), where he engaged in farming, and after a residence of 27 years here he returned to Chicago. His wife died in 1886. [Batavia Herald, 29 March, 1894]
