SCULLY, Michael Charles - The efficient Collector of Customs for the District of Superior and a highly respected citizen of Marquette, is numbered among the native sons of Michigan, his birth having occurred in Detroit on the 15th of August, 1856. His parents, Patrick and Margaret (Downey) Scully, were both natives of Ireland and crossed the Atlantic to this country in an early day, first locating in Pennsylvania, where they made their home until their removal to Detroit in the year 1840. They subsequently went to Lake Superior, where the family still resides, but the father has now departed this life. There were ten children, but only two of the number are yet living — our subject, and a sister, Mrs. T. W. Harrington, of St. Paul, Minnesota. M. C. Scully was left an orphan when only five years old and from a very early age has been dependent entirely upon his own resources, so that whatever success he has achieved in life is due entirely to his own efforts. He was reared in Houghton county, Michigan acquired his education in its public schools and in his youth learned the blacksmith's trade, which he followed for some years. Gibbon has said "Every person has two educations,—one which he receives from others, and one, more important, which he gives himself." Mr. Scully has indeed gained the greater part of his education entirely through his own efforts. After following blacksmithing for some time he followed engineering for a few years and in 1869 he removed to Ishpeming, where he followed those two occupations. He was industrious and energetic, made the most of his opportunities and as the years passed succeeded in accumulating some capital, which he has invested to good advantage and has derived there from a good income. Mr. Scully has been honored with a number of offices. While in Ishpeming he served as Chief of Police for nearly seven years. In 1890 he was elected Sheriff of Marquette county, and in October, 1893, he was appointed to his present position as Collector of Customs for the District of Superior, in which capacity he has since served with credit to himself and satisfaction to all concerned. By his ballot he supports the men and measures of the Democracy and is a warm advocate of its principles. In the autumn of 1888 was celebrated the marriage of Mr. Scully and Miss Catherine Quinn, an estimable lady, by whom he has three living children, as follows: Eileen, Margaret and Arthur. The family is widely and favorably known throughout this community and Mr. Scully and his wife have many friends, who esteem them highly. This gentleman certainly deserves great credit for his success in life and his example should well serve to encourage others, who like himself have no capital or influential friends to aid them in starting out in life. He has worked his way steadily upward, overcoming the obstacles and difficulties in his path by determined effort, and as a result is now the possessor of a comfortable competence, and above all has the confidence and regard of those with whom business or social relations have brought him in contact.

SLOVIK, Antionette "Wisniewski" - Widow of last U.S. soldier executed for desertion. Antoinette Wisniewski was born with epilepsy and one leg three inches shorter than the other, which was followed up by infantile paralysis and limited her ability to walk. She worked at Montella Plumbing Company in Dearborn, Michigan. It was there that she met Edward Donald Slovik who had just been paroled from reform school. Despite these handicaps, the couple was determined to marry and did so on November 7, 1942. When Eddie got a job at the old DeSoto plant, they got their own duplex. For the next months they were happy and secure in the belief that ex-convicts would not be drafted but were unaware of the invasion of North Africa. Slovik had been classified 4F because of his prison record, but was reclassified 1A during a military manpower shortage and received his draft notice shortly after the couple's first wedding anniversary. He was so unhappy that he wrote long letters (376 of them) to her during his 372 days in the Army. Although 21,049 U.S. soldiers were court-marshaled for desertion during WWII, Pvt. Slovik has the dubious distinction of being the one and only American soldier ever executed for this crime since the Civil War. His wife was not even informed of his death by the US Army at the time. His last words in front of the firing squad were, "They're not shooting me for deserting the United States Army...thousands of guys have done that. They're shooting me for bread I stole when I was twelve years old." Determined to right what she was certain was a horrible wrong, Antoinette vainly petitioned seven presidents to have her dead husband pardoned. She worked relentlessly to clear his record and to claim his body until her own death on September 7, 1979 in Detroit, where she had been living under an assumed name. In 1987, forty-two years after Slovik’s execution, he was pardoned by President Jimmy Carter and his remains were returned to Michigan and reburied next to her.

SLOVIK, Eddie - The last US Soldier to be executed for desertion, and the only soldier to be executed for this crime during World War II. He was a member of Company G, 109th Infantry Regiment, 28th Infantry Division, and had deserted them in late October 1944, right after he had joined the division as a replacement from the US. The division had just finished leaving the Battle of the Hurtengen Forest, where it had taken heavy casualties. Slovik had twice confessed to deserting, in writing, and stated that if given the opportunity he would desert again. He believed that he would only spend a few years in jail, which he would accept to avoid combat. However, he was given the death penalty. On 31 January 1945, Eddie Slovik was executed by firing squad near the village of Ste Marie aux Mines for the crime of desertion. Gen. Dwight D. Eisenhower, Supreme Allied Commander, ordered the execution during the closing days of the Battle of the Bulge, in order to deter other potential deserters. Slovik was court-marshaled for desertion under fire and sentenced to death by firing squad. He was buried in France, in a reserved section of the American cemetery with 94 American soldiers executed for the crimes of rape and murder. Slovik's remains were returned to Michigan in 1987. Many presidents have been petitioned but no pardon has ever been granted. Forty-two years after Slovik's execution, his remains are reburied next to his wife, Antoinette.
