Mrs. Carl Fredrichs
Mrs. C. F. Fredrichs Dies Early Today from Burns Received in Explosion that Wrecked Home
Death Came at 3 A. M. at New London; Funeral to be Held Saturday
Mrs. Carl F. Fredrichs, 53, died at 3 o'clock this morning at the New London Community hospital of injuries received in an explosion yesterday morning that wrecked the Fredrichs home at 71 W. Fourteenth St. With her at the time of her death were Mr. Fredrichs, Mrs. Fredrichs' mother, Mrs. Mary Altman of Butternut, and Mrs. Otto Zoesch, Mr. Fredrichs' sister, also of Butternut. She had been taken to the New London Community hospital shortly after the explosion, which occurred at 8 o'clock. She was suffering with third degree burns on 70 per cent of her body. Blood plasma, flown from Green Bay and Chicago, was administered.
Mr. Fredrichs, publisher and manager of the TribuneGazette, and Michael, 11-year-old son of Mr. and Mrs. Fredrichs, who were also in the house at the time of the explosion, both escaped injury. The body is at Heuer's Funeral home. Services will be held at St. Rose Catholic church Saturday morning. Burial will be in the Park Falls cemetery at Park Falls.
The explosion resulted when an accumulation of gas in the walls of the house and in the furnace pipes ignited as Mrs. Fredrichs struck a match to light the gas stove in the basement. The gas is thought to have accumulated from a leak or leaks in the gas pipes.
The explosion was instantaneous. Persons living in the neighborhood said that it sounded like a blast of dynamite. It was felt by persons living more than a mile away. These described the effect as similar to an earthquake.
Michael on the second floor was thrown from his bed by the force of the explosion. Mr. Fredrichs with the help of Ronald Fillnow brought Mrs. Fredrichs up from the basement and out into the yard.
Every Window Broken
The house was blown from six inches to a foot off its foundation. Every window was broken. Even the rear garage window, about 35 feet from the house, was blown out, frame and all--as were several windows on the west side of the Henry Hoffman residence next door. The chimney on the east wall was completely destroyed and the chimney in the middle of the house cut off at the roof. Hardly a piece of furniture in the entire house was left in a usable condition. Stockings, dish towels and window shades were tossed high into trees.
However, fire did not get started except in a minor way. About half of the curtains, two dust mops, some clothing in the basement and shingles at the rear of the house, ignited by burning curtains, were all that caught fire. These fires were quickly extinguished by the Fire department, which had been called.
Both the house and the furniture were covered by insurance to substantially their full value.
Marian, Mrs. Altman, Mrs. Zoesch and Mrs. Marcella Benz, Mrs. Fredrichs' sister, arrived in New London last night. John, eldest son, who resides in Troy, N. Y., arrives by plane this morning. Pat, in the Army Air Corps at Lubbock, Tex., is expected to leave Lubbock tomorrow on a furlough previously scheduled. Lee, another son, is with the Seventh army on Okinawa. It is expected that Lee Altman, Mrs. Fredrichs' brother, will be reached today. Source: Clintonville Tribune-Gazette (Clintonville, Waupaca County, Wis.) 19 July 1945; transcribed by MZ

At Union, Wisconsin, Oct. 11, 1856, of Quick consumption, Dr. James Tailmadge, aged 26 years, formerly of this County.
Mr. T. left the Medical College at Cincinnati June last at which time and place he graduated and received his diploma as M.D. He had so confined himself to study and practice that he had fallen into a decline. He was a young man of promise, and bid fare to be one of the first in his profession. Those acquainted with him here, knew him but to love and respect him, being a ready friends upon all occasions with his associates. We regret his being so soon removed to the Spirit Land. - Martinsburgh, Nov. 7, 1856 Source: The Lewis County Banner (Lowville, NY) - Wednesday, November 12, 1856; submitted by Jim Dezotell
