Sec. 2, p.6: A 16 year old Joliet boy died Friday night from injuries he suffered in a hit and run accident. Tim HALL, a student at Joliet Central High School, had been in critical condition at Loyola University Medical Center in Maywood since the Nov. 30 accident. Police are still investigating the accident that occurred Nov. 30 in the 400 block of Blackhawk Street in the Ridgewood Area. Hall was a passenger in a car that was hit from behind by a blue Volkswagen Rabbit or Jetta. HALL and a friend got out to check the damage, and the car fled the scene. When the two youths tried to chase the car on foot, HALL was hit by a second car, a station wagon which was described as possibly being a brown 1972 to 1979 Ford LTD with a wood-grain or white painted side. HALL’S mother, Marla, called the Herald-News last week before her son’s death with a message to thank the people who gave the family support.

He came to Belvidere to accept the pulpit of Immanuel church in 1892 and with the exception of five years held it continuously until the first of July last year. Ill health forced him to resign in 1912 but he again became the pastor of the church in 1917 and held it until his failing health forced him to resign once more. Besides his widow, he is survived by five children, Clemens and Bertha, of Springfield, Ill.; George, of Brookfield, Ill.; Al of Belvidere; and Mrs. Foster JOHNSON, of this city.

** Obituary ** Died -George HOUCK, Monday evening, Oct. 21, 1901, at his home surrounded by his family and friends. The subject of this sketch was born Sept. 15, 1840, at Waldheim, Amt. Tuebingen, Wuerttemberg, and came to this country, landing in New York, Aug. 9, 1858. He joined the army Sept. 15, 1861, entering Co. H, 111th Pennsylvania volunteers and served with patriotic valor for three years, one month and fifteen days. He was wounded at the battle of Bull Run in July, 1863 (incorrect info). After his honorable discharge he located for a short time at Warren, Penn. From there he moved westward and for awhile lived at Crown Point, Ind. He came to Beecher in 1867 and lived here continuously up to the time of his death. Engaging in the shoe business he was to be found at his store at all times until about two years ago when he was compelled on account of delicate health to give up active work. Mr. HOUCK was sick for four years but patiently bore the intense suffering peculiar to his ailment. The direct cause of death was a tumor in the region of the liver, and attendant complications. Besides the sorrowing widow, he leaves three children living–Mrs. Minnie FREGEAU, of Chicago, Mrs. Rudolph PECHT, of Beecher, and a son, “Frank.” The funeral is to be held Thursday afternoon at 1 o’clock, and will be under the charge of Rev. F. Siegfried. The interment will take place in the Beecher Cemetery; the remains borne thither by old comrades. Mr. HOUCK was in health a progressive and public spirited citizen.

The sympathy of the community is with the bereaved family. **Research has identified some errors in this obituary notice. Contact me for more information.

Dying From Injuries Man Summons Aid John Huseman, Thrown Under Wagon, Drags Himself to Station, Then Dies. Pitched by frightened horses and thrown beneath a wagon heavily loaded with freight, John HUSEMAN, aged 25 years, died early today in Crete from injuries received in an attempt to control a team which he was driving. Huseman was pitched directly beneath the wheels and the wagon with its heavy load passed over his abdomem. Conscious and suffering the agonies of death the injured man managed to drag himself to the station of the Chicago & Eastern railroad where bystanders carried him into the depot and summoned medical aid. Fifteen minutes later he died, having succumbed before physicians arrived. Examination, however, showed that the injuries were of such a vital nature that had medical assistance been given in time, attempts to save his life would have proved useless. No one witnessed the accident which occured at the freight depot where Huseman was unloading machinery and other weighty freight. He was alone at the time and in the moments preceding his death managed to gasp out the facts concerning the accident. I is thought he lived about twenty minutes after being injured. Huseman came to Crete about four years ago to reside with his grandparents, Mr. and Mrs. William GLAUSEN, who, with his father, who residesin Chicago survive him. He was employed by F. W. SALLER, the liveryman and was a young man of excellent habits who had made many friends in Crete. His mother died about three years ago. Funeral arrangements will be made later.

George W HYDE
Ending of a Busy Life — Mr. George W. HYDE, a Pioneer of the ’50’s Passes Away Friday Forenoon, in his Sixty-Eighth Year. — At eleven o’clock Saturday forenoon, at his home 303 North Ottawa street surrounder by part of his family, and other near relatives, Mr. George W. HYDE, passed to his reward in the Great Beyond in his sixty-eighth year. He leaves a widow, whom he married in 1857, her maiden name being Mary HOWARD; and five children — Mrs. W. W. EVANS, of Chicago; Mrs. W. E. HOWARD, of Soudan, Minnesota; Mr. Louis H. HYDE, George PRESTON, and Mary HYDE of this city. The funeral will take place from the house Monday afternoon at half-past one o’clock, Rev. A. H. LAING, officiating. Mr. HYDE was born in Batavia, New York; several of his earlier years were passed in Watertown. In 1856 he came to Joliet operating as a surveyor on the Illinois and Michigan canal, under Mr. J. B. PRESTON. He and his uncle, late Henderson HOWK, built and operated the flouring mills above the Jackson street bridge, many years. About four years ago he retired from business having amassed a comfortable competence. Mr. HYDE was Democratic, socially, a staunch Republican, politically, and a Universalist by religion. He was unassuming, a staunch friend; in his family he was all that could be desired in a husband and a father. His faults were few.
In His Last Resting Place. All that was earthly of the late George W. HYDE was laid to rest in snow-covered Oakwood yesterday afternoon. The body looked wonderfully like life, as he reposed in his casket; the latter being of heavy red cedar, plainly covered with black broadcloth; a plain oxidized plate inscribed: 1823 George Warren Hyde 1891. Old friends were gathered in the parlors to mourn with his family. His pall-bearers were old time friends: D. Y. SMITH, Wm. DAVIDSON, Henry FISH, W. A. STRONG, Wm. ADAM, Horace HUMPHREY, O. FOX, M. L. COOK. Source: The Joliet Republic And Sun, Joliet, IL, Vol. 46, No. 17, Page 3, Dec 4, 1891 Posted by Lawrence B Peet, July 21, 2000
