The Centreville Observer

Leonidas Hamilton Hascall was born near Kalamazoo, Mich., Jan. 8, 1842. and died at his home in Centreville on Saturday, Aug. 26, 1911, aged 69 years, 7 months and 18 days.
In his youth he entered a printing shop and mastered its every detail. His thorough knowledge of the business and his basic intellectuality took him from "case" and into the editorial chair which he occupied many years. He was an analyst, an omniverous reader, and a keen observer and in these three schools he was a tireless student. His ability compelled respect and he was recognized as an authority on any subject he was interested in. He was of a cosmopolitan spirit and popular with all who knew him. To his broad culture was added a loveable disposition and great kindliness. His failings were but these virtues run riot.

His early life was spent in Kalamazoo. On July 6, 1880, he was married to Mrs. Sophia Beerstecher Hascall, widow of his half brother, Volney Hascall. For the two succeeding years they continued to reside in Kalamazoo, when business and family ties brought them to Centreville where they have since resided.

For several years Mr. Hascall has been a semi-invalid and for a number of months has been confined to his bed. Under this affliction, those very immediately associated with him state he developed a lovableness and depth of spirituality that was most delightful. Everthing that love or science could suggest was done by his devoted wife and friends to brighten his pathway.

Leonidas married 2, 3 (1) Sophia Frances Spies 1 daughter of John Spies and Barbara Ness on 9 Dec 1863 in ..., Adams, Illinois. Sophia was born 4, 5, 6, 7 in Jul 1844 in ..., Bedford, Pennsylvania. She died 8, 9, 10, 11 on 2 Jan 1923 in Quincy, Adams, Illinois. She was buried 12, 13, 14 in Topeka Cemetery, Topeka, Shawnee, Kansas. She was counted in a census 23, 24 in 1915 in Topeka, Shawnee, Kansas. She was counted in a census 25, 26 in 1885 in Topeka, Shawnee, Kansas. She was counted in a census 27, 28 in 1905 in Topeka, Shawnee, Kansas.

They had the following children:

  14045 F i Lillie May Hascall 1 was born 2, 3, 4 in Aug 1865 in Illinois. She was buried 5, 6 in Topeka Cemetery, Topeka, Shawnee, Kansas.
        Lillie married 2, 3 Abraham Lincoln Wiseman 1 in 1882. Abraham was born 4, 5, 6 in 1860 in Ohio. He died 7, 8 in 1932. He was buried 9, 10 in Topeka Cemetery, Topeka, Shawnee, Kansas.

Leonidas married 2, 3, 4 (2) Sophie Beerstecher 1 on 6 Jul 1880 in Centreville, St. Joseph, Michigan. Sophie was born 5, 6, 7 on 27 May 1838 in Switzerland. She died 8, 9, 10 on 6 Jul 1914 in Centreville, St. Joseph, Michigan. She was buried 11, 12, 13 on 9 Jul 1914 in Praire River Cemetery, Centreville, St. Joseph, Michigan.

The Centreville Observille Observer

For many weeks the people of Centreville have anxiously watched the condition of Mrs. Hascall and prayed for her recovery to health and strength. Few if any homes that have not had evidence of her thoughtful consideration. Those in need turned to her as their unfailing friend, those in joy delighted in having her share their pleasure, those in sorrow received from her some token of her sympathy, a tender little note accompanied by a bunch of flowers, arranged as only she knew how to bring out their full beauty; for everyone she had some kindly act; kindliness and helpfulness seemed to radiate from her. So when it became known on Monday evening that she had finished her mission, sorrow was in every heart. Her life has been one of service: from her young womanhood her first consideration has been for others.

And flowers! How she loved them and how her garden in her healthful days was a riot of color and beauty, not laid out in exact plats and filled with stiff designs so conventional as to be almost painful, but it went wandering away, every turn disclosing some new harmony, some happy surprise. Away in a dark corner was some plant that lighted it up like an exquisite gem while out in the bright sunshine were those "Smiles of God" that enhanced its beauty. Everywhere was harmony and beauty, without the primness or precision that is man-like but never like God's harmony of nature. God had given her that love of his works that made her in complete harmony with nature and her garden was but symbolical of her nature and life: always beautiful, always harmonious, always helpful.

Mrs. Hascall was born in Switzerland May 27, 1838, and died at her beautiful home in Centreville on Monday Evening, July 6, 1914, aged 76 years, 1 month, 9 days. In 1856 the family emigrated to this country and came directly to Centreville, which they have always regarded as their home. Here she spent her young womanhood until she bagan teaching and for many years was occupied in that calling and in traveling for she was much in demand as a traveling companion. She spoke four languages, was a fine business woman and highly educated, an ideal educator, companion and friend. Her travels were very extensive, embracing nearly every country on the globe. Her great privileges never changed her nature: she was ever the same unassuming, delightful person that never forgot a friend or considered herself superior.

In 1856 she was married to Volney Hascall, of Kalamazoo, who was editor and proprietor of the Kalamazoo Gazette for thirty-five years. Mr. Hascall died in about 1878. On July 6, 1880, she was married to Leonidas H. Hascall. a half brother of her first husband.

For two years they resided in Kalamazoo and then came to Centreville to be among her own people and here she has resided since. Her love for Centreville and its people never waned: she was first in every good work and there are scores of things on every hand to evidence her love and generosity. Our side-walk to the depot and cemetery were made possible through the generosity of herself and sister Mrs. Thomas.

Mr. Hascall died August 26, 1911, after a very long and most trying illness. She was his constant nurse; no one could meet his wishes as could she and she sacrificed herself for him. There is peculiar significance and harmony in her release from human life on the anniversary of her marriage.

For the past two winters she has gone with her sister and brother and wife to California and how she did enjoy the land of winter flowers and sunshine, and yet she never recovered from the sorrow of Mr. Hascall's death and has only been waiting for reunion..
Of the original family of seven children but four are now living - Adolph, Mrs Julia B. Thomas, Eugene and Augustus, all of Centreville. There are 23 nephews and nieces, all of whom were as dear to her as own children.

In the 1970's a National Fast Food Chain, Wendy's, featured as a part of their decor, tables with old newspaper advertisements set in acryllica on the table surface. One of the ads was for products that could be found at the store located in the Hascall block in Goshen. The Hascall block actually referred to a single building on the block.

Pioneer History of Elkhart County, Indiana

Mr. Hascall was a prosperous business man for many years. He was associated for a time with Washington Earle in conducting a general store, then the largest store in Goshen. Mr. Hascall built the brick block on the corner of Main Street and Lincoln avenue, which was torn down several years ago to give place to the present City National Babk building. The store occupied the corner room of the old building and was familiarly known as Hascall's corner. He had the contract for and built a part of the Lake Shore railroad and was interested in other important projects. Some of his business ventures turned out disastrously and during the last years of his life he was in rather straightened circumstances. He was given the nickname of "old Hascall", by which he was known to the people of his day.

Mrs Emma Permelia Hascall, widow of the late Chauncy S. Hascall, died at 8:30 this morning at the home of her daughter, Mrs. Frank P. Abbott, on East Lincoln avenue. Old age was the cause of her death. Mrs. Hascall was born at Penyan, N. Y., September 25, 1820. She graduated from Elmyra Seminary, Elmira, N. Y. at the age of fourteen and with her parents, Mr. and Mrs Ebenezer Brown, came to Goshen in the same year. The trip was made to Detroit by boat and then overland. Ebenezer Brown was one of the first sherrifs of Elkhart county and was a very influential man. He has the distinction of building the first frame house in Goshen, which at that time was but a village no larger than its neighbor Benton. Miss Broiwn began teaching school and was the first woman instructor in Elkhart county. She taught in a small school house west of the village.

In July 1842 Miss Emma Brown was united in marriage to C. S. Hascall, at that time the most influential citizen of Goshen. They took up their residence on the corner of Second and Pike streets. Among the achievements of Mr. Hascall was the building of the Hascall block, which stands today on the corner of Lincoln avenue and Main street. Hascall's hall, which was in the block, was the most popular place in the village, and the older citizens of Goshen can recall many a good time spent in it. Mrs. Hascall has done a great deal for Goshen in a literary way. Mr. Hascall died in August 1904.

To the union of Mr. and Mrs. Hascall four children were born. Mrs. F. P. Abbott and Mrs A. C. Loomis of Goshen and Mrs. William Pulling and Louis Hascall of East Chicago. The deceased is survived by her four children, one sister, Mrs. Helen Elliott of Pasadena, Cal., and also ten grandchildren and two great grandchildren.

Mrs. Chauncey Hascall's Recollections

Doubtless other schools were thrown open away from these centers of population, large and small, but the educational movement throughout the county was sporadic, and not directed along continuous channels through an organized system. Among those who faithfully participated in such effort, and bravely assisted in the task of tiding over the children of those imes to the better period of organized and classified schools, was Mrs. Chauncey S. Hascall, wife of the pioneer merchant of Goshen. In a paper read before the Elkhart Historical Society she says: "In the winters of 1839-40 and 1840-41 I taught chool in the next district of Goshen. I received twelve dollars a month which was considered at that time a high salary for a woman. Of course it was the typical log schoolhouse, which the young people of the present day have read of, and the older ones hold in affectionate remembrance. The writing desks were shelves attached to the logs on the sides of the room, and the seats were long benches without backs, with a second row of the same kind, but lower, for the smaller scholars. A fire in a big box stove in the center of the room was kept in a roaring condition by the boys, who were glad of the opportunity of getting a change of position and a breath of fresh air. The patrons of the school were mostly Pennsylvania Dutch and spoke their own language in home and neighborhood intercourse; consequently English was almost a foreign language to many of the scholars.

"The Stouders, Studebakers, Cripes, Ulerys and Mannings I remember most distinctly among the scholars, as I boarded with each of their families a month, instead of taking, as was the custom, the rounds of the district. It was an experience having the winter school taught by a 'schoolma'am ,' and he trustees thought I might have some trouble governing it, but I had very little. The girls and boys were model children, and must have been well trained at home. Those who are living now are

"John and David Studebaker, Levi Ulery and Jacob Cline were the oldest pupils and were nearly grown men. All the older residents will remember Dave Studebaker, whose residence was in Goshen many years and who died here esteemed and regretted. I think there were almost thirty scholars in the school, and among them the Bartmess boys.

"The small scholars of that day, with their home-made garments, home-made from the shearing of the sheep to the last stitch in the clothes, made after the same pattern as their fathers' and mothers' apparel, would make a striking contrast to the little people of today, with their large collars, and knee pants of the boys, and the furbelows and fancy dress 'fixings' of the girls.

"The three R's were the principal branches taught; in fact the only ones. Grammar was an unknown study in the backwoods. One or two little 'Mannings' may have studied geography. There were different classes in reading and spelling, and the monotonous round was only varied by an occasional call to help solve some problems in subtraction or long division. In arithmetic each studied by himself and could 'go ahead' as fast as he pleased without being kept back by slower ones in the class.

"Of course not one of the scholars could have passed a 'high school' examination, but the young farmers could 'reckon up' the value of their farm produce, read the Bible and weekly newspaper, properly sign all legal documents and spell better than half the high school graduates.

"There were none of the modern aids to teachers; even blackboards were not in use in the country schools of that day. There were no normal schools for instruction in the art of teaching; no country or township institutes where teachers could meet and discuss the new ideas advanced in educational lines." (Weaver, History of Elkhart County, 1916)

Frank P. Abbott died Saturday evening at 6:30 o'clock at his home No. 313 East Lincoln avenue, of uremia after an illness covering a period of about six months. Deceased was 56 years and seven months old. He had taken ill on March 4th with the disease which caused his death and was confined to his home and for the greater part of the time to his bed since then. His death was expected at many times since he was taken sick but his remarkable vitality aided him over every crisis until Saturday evening when he succombed to the ravages of the malady.

Frank P. Abbott was born at Merrimacport, Mass., Jan. 22, 1856. His parents, Mr. and Mrs. William Abbott moved to Jefferson township, Elkhart county, December 1, 1862. He attended the country schools and also went to school in Goshen. The family finally moved to Goshen and the senior Abbottbecame a pump maker. He and his wife died here and their bodies are buried in Oak Ridge cemetery. The son worked in his father's pump shop which for a time was located at the corner of Clinton and Sixth streets, ... . Eventually Mr. Abbott obtained employment in the lumber mill owned by John H. Lesh. After some experience there he went to Tennessee and started a lumber industry himself, but did not succeed financialy, and returned to Goshen to again work in the Lesh mill. Subsequently he was given the management, ... . He was also employed by the late Wm. of the Lesh industry at Rolling Prairee, Ind., and there he began a career of prosperity that continuede uninteruptedly and at so rapid a rate that within a few years he had laid the foundation for wealth.

When the Lesh, Prouty and Abbott Co. was organized in East Chicago, Ind., Feb 17, 1890, Mr. Abbott became president of the concern. He was also identified with the Mishler, Penrod & Abbott Co. formed in South Bend in December of 1899 and with the J. W. Thompson Co. of Memphis Tenn., organized in July 1900. These concerns all prospered enormously and made those who had invested in them very wealthy. The mills have since been abandoned.

Oct. 20, 1880, Mr. Abbott was united in marriage with Miss Jeannette Hascall of Goshen. The family moved to East Chicago in 1889. In 1897 Mr. Abbott of John H. Lesh the fine residence at 313 East Lincoln avenue and returned to this city to reside. He spent much of the time between Goshen and East Chicago and also made nunerous trips into Tennessee, but for several years past he has been in virtual retirement from business activity. His health failed and he remained in Goshen, spending his summers until this year at his Lake Wawasee cottage.

Mr. Abbott was a member of th Maccabees and was also an Elk. His family consists of his wife, five daughters, Mrs. R. W. Lardner of Chicago and the Misses Ruby, Florence, Jeannette and Dorothy Abbott; and three sons, Frank, Jr., John H. and William. He is also survived by one brother, William Abbott, who is employed as an engraver in New York City; and two sisters, Mrs. Fanny Chamberlain of Goshen and Mrs. E. Boudinot Stockton of Winooski Vt.

At the time of his death, Mr. Abbott was a director and president of the State bank of Goshen and a director of the Elkhart County Trust Co. He had been identified with banking in Goshen for a number of years.

His complete success as a lumberman is a striking example of what can be accomplished through energy and a close application to business. About 25 years ago he labored by the day in a factory. Gaining knowledgeof the lumber industry he borrowed money and made an unfavorable individual start in the south.

Pioneer History of Elkhart County, Indiana

Ebenezer M. Chamberlain came in 1833 from Bangor, Maine, to Elkhart where he taught school one year, then in 1834, located in Goshen. He at once took a leading part in the affairs of his new home. It was he who was instrumental in having the streets laid out wide. He planted the first shade trees in the young village and urged others to plant trees in front of their homes, so the city of Goshen is indebted to him for its wide streets and fine shade trees. He built the first brick residence in Goshen. ... He gave the ground upon which the Chamberlain school is located and many years afterward the school was named in his honor. In 1837 he was appointed postmaster, serving four years. He served in the legislature, was judge of the circuit court nine years, when the circuit court comprised seven counties and was in congress one term, dying just before its expiration. Judge Chamberlain was one of the county's most prominent men during his residence of more than a quarter of a century here.

The Standard History of Elkhart County Indiana

Hon. Ebenezer M. Chamberlain. One of the earliest lawyers to practice law in Nortern Indiana, including Elkhart County, for years a dignified and upright judge of the District Court, holding sessions over many counties, and riding circuit horsebsck and by oyher conveyance from county seat to county seat, afterwards a member of Congress, Judge Ebenezer M. Chamberlain was one of the most distinguished men of the state from the early '30s until about the time of the Civil war. Judge Chanberlain is remembered as a man of unusual intellectual endowment, of unimpeachable character, with a thorough understanding of the law, and by his fidelity to every trust confided to his care, his life was lived as the highest type of Christian manhood. His career is a part of the history of Elkhart County, and for that reason this sketch belongs among those of Elkhart County's representative men of the past.

He was born at Orrington, Penobscot Vounty, Maine, August 20, 1805. He grew up in the primitive years of the first quarter of the nineteenth century. He attended common schools only furing the winter months and worked almost continuously on the farm, giving his labor as a share to the support of his father's family. His father, Col. Joshua Chamberlain, of Brewer, Maine, was a ship builder, and while serving in the war of 1812, as colonel, his ships, in which nearly all his property was invested, were seized by the British and burned, which left him in straitened circumstances. At sixteen Ebenezer M. Chamberlain left the farm and worked in a shipyard for six years. However, his wages, according to the custom of the time, were paid to his father until he reached his majority.

After becoming of age he continued employment in the shipyard until he had saved enough to enable him to pass six months in an academy. He was ambitious for an education and for a sphere of usefulness commensurate with his excellent talent. For three years he was a student of law in the office of Elisha S. Allen at Bangor, Maine, and taught school in the meantime. At Bangor he was a member of the Forensic Clib and in the deabates among its members he found an excellent opportunity for training his talent for aratory and public speaking. During 1831 he made something of a local name and reputation for himself by his prominence in the debates over the subject of the Sunday mail question, a matter which engrossed a considerable part of the public mind at the time. He argued against the prohibition of Sunday delivery of mail so ably that those who favored his views printed them in a pamphlet form and this pamphlet was extensively circulated.

At that time the laws of Maine required seven years of preliminary study before admission to the bar. As alreadyindicated Mr. Chamberlain's means were very limited, and rather than "mark time" during this long period of seven years, he determined to come west. In June, 1832 with only a few dollars which he had earned by a term of winter school teaching, he set out for Indiana, arriving in Fayette County a month later. Again he secured acceptance of his services as a school teacher, but soon entered the law offices of Samuel W. Park at Connersville, and on August 9, 1833, he was regularly admitted to the Indiana bar.
Nortern Indiana at that time was still a sparsely settled wilderness. Elkhart County had been organized only two or three years, and it was to Elkhart County that the ypung attorney at law came to begin practice. He soon secured his own share in the litigation of the time, and also became a prominent figure in Indiana politics. In 1835 he was elected representative to the Legislature from the Norten Indiana District, and it shows how small a population there was in this part of the state when it is stated that this district comprised in territory nearly on-fifth of the entire state of Indiana.

Early in his promising career and ascent to prominence Judge Chamberlain established a home of his own by his marriage on November 28, 1838, to Phebe Ann Hascall, daughter of Amasa Hascall of Le Roy, New York. In the following year, 1839, he was elected a member of the State Senate for a three year term, and was soon marked as one of the influential leaders of the de,ocratic party in Indiana. He was especially admired for the strength and eloquence of his oratory, and his reputation as an orator became a matter of state wide recognition through his anniversary address on the battle of New Orlans, delivered before the Democratic State Convention in 1841.

In 1842 the legislature elected him prosecuting attorney of the old Ninth Judicial District. A year later he was chosen presiding judge of the same district. After eight years of service on the bench he was re-elected without opposition in 1851. That was a time of bitter partisanship in Indiana as elsewhere, and being a democratic judhge was perhaps only natural that he should be made a taget for criticism from the whig press. But this criticism was silenced by a remarkable unanimity of loyalty in behalf of the judge. The entire bar in attendance at courts united in signature to a letter testifying to the "creditable, dignified, courteous and satisfactory" manner in which Judge Chamberlain discharged the duties of his office. This testimonial was emphasized by the fact that the two associate judges, both of whom were whigs, also added their written statement of praise to the same effect. Judge Chamberlain was for nine years judge of the District Court, and in that time he made his office an instrument for upholding peace and order and justice over a large part of Indiana.
Again and again the democratic party bestowed its honors upon him. In 1844 he was delegate to the Democratic National Convention. In 1848 he was one of the senatorial candidates for presidential elector, and aided in giving the vote of the state to General Cass. In 1851 Judge Chamberlain resigned from the bench to accept democratic nomination to Congress in the reorganized Tenth Indiana District.

George Hascall, quite well known in Goshen, and a familiar character on the streets of Elkhart, committed suicide Monday afternoon about five o'clock in the Mecca saloon in Elkhart.

Hascall was a regular patron of the place, and had been drinking a bottle of beer with John Steimer, the proprietor. Steimer stepped behind the bar for a minute and in a few minutes in response to a request from Hascall brought the latter a glass of water. A few minutes later Steimer's attention was attracted to the heavy labored breathing of Hascall. Investigation revealed that he had taken cyanide of potasium. He died in a few minutes. On his vest was pinned a poem dedicated to Rose, whose identity is not known.

Hascall had stated to a friend to get rid of one woman in order to marry another, who was going to get a divorce. His reputation for veracity, however, was rather dubious. H had long adhered to habits of dissipation.

Hascall was 52 years of age and was employed in the Conn horn factory. He boarded at a private residence. He was well dressed generally and for that reason was often noticed when hanging about saloons and other resorts. His wife secured a divorce and custody of their son Dudley. Although she married again to Ben Giles, she made her home with Mrs. Hascall, mother of the deceased. George Hascall was the son of Amasa N. Hascall and half brother of Frank A. Hascall of this city. He came of good family and his manner of living was a continual source of embarrassmement to his relatives.

Amasa N. Hascall was a resident of Goshen for many years, and was a prominent and respected business man. He was interested in a dry goods store and other enterprises.
The note found pinned on Hascall's cest read, "Rosebud, you are with me to the end. Dearie." Hascall had contemplated suicide for some time and had said to friends that he would take poison some day.

He obtained the poison late yesterday at the Central drug store, and when he purchased it had asked the clerk, whether or not it was deadly poison, and when informed it was, asked them to so label it. He informed the clerk that he wanted it for use in developing photographs. It was learned that he was thouroughly familiar with the poison, for he had used it in polishing instruments at the Conn factory, and might have secured it there.

At 7 o'clock this morning the light which for nearly 86 years has directed the life of Mrs. Avaline Chamberlain, widow of Eldridge Chamberlain, flickered and went out. She was one of the pioneers, having come to Goshen from Le Roy, Genesee county, New York, where she was born April 4, 1819, over 70 years ago, and she has resided here continuously during that period. She was a woman of great character, intelligent, and her life was full of good deeds, and the ripeness of her age had not taken her faculties from her. She was one of a family of great longevity.

She leaves in her immediate family two sons - Thomas J. and Charles Chamberlain, and a daughter Isabelle Miller, and four grandchildren - Anna Miller, Helen, Isabelle and Eldridge Chamberlain. She also leaves one brother and sister - Gen. Milo S. Hascall, who is now very sick at Oak Park, Ill., 75 years of age, and Mrs Phoebe A. Chamberlain, 88 years old, Mr F. A. Hascall and Miss Antoinette Hascall being half brother and sister to the deceased.

Avaline married 2, 3 Eldridge G. Chamberlain 1 son of Joshua Chamberlain and Sarah ... on 5 Sep 1841 in Goshen, Elkhart, Indiana. Eldridge was born 4, 5 on 23 Aug 1811 in Orrington, Penobscot, Maine. He died 6, 7, 8, 9 on 17 Feb 1899 in Goshen, Elkhart, Indiana. He was buried 10, 11, 12 on 19 Feb 1899 in Oak Ridge Cemetery. Goshen, Elkhart, Indiana.

Eldridge G. Chamberlain died of Bright's disease and old age this morning at his home on East Lincoln avenue, shortly after five o'clock, after several month's illness.

For nine months has this pioneer suffered the ravages of Bright's disease, and it was considered certain that the end could not be far off. A short time before his death this morning Mr. Chamberlain expressed a desire to get up and was assisted to a chair. He soon asked to be helped to his bed, and in a few moments after he lay down the long and splendid career of the gentleman was at an end. He passed peacefully away.

Eldridge G. Chamberlain, who had so long been a resident of Goshen and whose life was so much connected with this city's history that his influence in its affairs may be traced back almost three score and ten years, was born August 23, 1811, at Orrington, Maine, where his youth and early manhood was spent and where he cast his forst vote for Andrew Jackson in 1832 in the great contest between Jackson and Clay. During the year 1833 Mr. Chamberlain came to Goshen, preceding his brother, the late Judge Ebenezer M. Chamberlain who later cast his fortunes with the Indiana commonwealth. Since that time Eldridge G. Chamberlain has been identified as a conspicious figure with the affairs of the city and county and this section of the state.

He was elected justice of the peace and served so long that "memory of man runneth not to the contrary," and during all those years as a citizen and a magistrate his career was useful to the people of the locality. Possessing an acute mind and broad principles his decisions were always ruled by law and conscience, and the record he made was one which should be emulated by the magistrates of the present date. He was a man of wide reading and pleasing address and the respect and confidence he obtained from the people was no doubt his most precious reward. He was county clerk seven years, being the second clerk of the county, county recorder seven years and served as postmaster for eight years and in these positions his official career was the same success as that which characterized his life as a magistrate and citizen.

While he was never been so much of a partisan to deny any man respect for opinions, and was agreeable in any political remark, Mr. Chamberlain was always a democrat and conscientiously espoused the principles of his party, voting for every democratic president elected from 1832 to 1892.

He was married at Le Roy, New York, to Aveline E. Hascall, a sister of Mrs. Ebenezer Chamberlain, the wife of the brother. Besides the widow, three children survive him. They are Thomas J., of Detroit; Charles F., of East Chicago; and Mrs. Isabelle Miller of Morenci, Mich., and who has recently been living in Detroit.

Toledo and Lucas county, Ohio, 1623-1923
By John M. Killits, A.M., LL.D.

Norman E. Hascall

Norman E. Hascall, the secretary and general manager of the J. J. Freeman Company, jewelers of Toledo, was born in Goshen, Elkhart county, Indiana, March 28, 1863, and is the son of Melvin Barns and Mary Emily (Moore) Hascall, who were natives of the states of New York and Vermont, respectively. In early life the parents went to Indiana and were pioneers of Elkhart county, where for many years the father successfully engaged in merchandising, there remaining until the time of his death. His widow is still living and has reached the advanced age of eighty-nine years.

In his youthful days, Norman E. Hascall attended the public schools until he reached his thirteenth year, pursuing his studies in his native city but at that time the urge of necessity forced him out into the business world, as he was obliged to assist in the support of his family. He became an apprentice to the jeweler's trade in an establishment at Goshen, Indiana. Later he came to Toledo, where he entered the employ of J.J. Freeman, with whom he continued as an employee until 1908, when the business was incorporated, and he became secretary and general manager, which position he has since occupied, while his connection with the house dates from 1885. There was no phase of the jewelry trade with which he is not thoroughly familiar and his enterprise and progressive methods have been dominant elements in the continued success of the undertaking. They have a well appointed store and carry a large and carefully selected line of jewelry, while their reasonable prices and honorable business methods have been dominant features in the attainment of the present day prosperity.

On the 24th of June, 1891, Mr. Hascall was united in marriage to Miss Flora Alice Freeman of Toledo, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. J. J. Freeman. They have become parents to two children: Norman, born in Toledo, was educated in the schools of this city and in Denison University and is now engaged in the jewelry business with his father and maternal grandfather. He is descended from ancestors who served in the Revolutionary war and his paternal grandfather was a member of the Forty-eighth Indiana Regiment during the Civil war and won the commission of colonel. It is not strange, therefor, that Norman Hascall, Jr., responded to the call for troops during the World war, and was commissioned a second lieutenant of the Thirty-seventh Division, while later he was promoted to the rank of first lieutenant. He served in the Meuse-Argonne and in the Ypres-Lys offensives. His valor and loyalty were many times demonstrated and he recieved honorable mention as well as the French War Cross. Following the close of the war he recieved his discharge at Chillocothe and returned to Toledo, where he is now connected to the J.J. Freeman Company. He married Leonora Strassburger of St. Louis, Missouri, on the 11th of February, 1922. The daughter, Suzanne Hascall, born in Toledo, in 1902, is now attending the Smead school.
Mr. Hascall of this review is well known in club circles, belonging to the Toledo Country and the Inverness Golf clubs. Fraternally he is identified with the Masons and has always proved a faithful follower of the teachings and the high purpopse of the craft since becoming a member of the order. He belongs to the Sons of the American Revolution and is a valued member of the Retail Merchants Association, of which he has been elected president annually for the past three years, a fact which proves conclusively that he has made an excellant presiding officer and one who has greatly furthered the aims of the organization. He ranks with the prominent and representative merchants of the city, actuated at all times by a progressive spirit and his position of prosperity is in marked contrast to his financial status when at the age of thirteen years he started out in life to provide his own support. His success has come as the direct reward of his efforts and labor and his example is indeed well worthy of emulation.
        Norman married 2, 3 Flora Alice Freeman 1 daughter of J. J. Freeman and Alice ... on 24 Jun 1891. Flora was born 4, 5 on 26 Mar 1871 in Toledo, Lucas, Ohio. She died 6, 7 on 16 Dec 1941 in Toledo, Lucas, Ohio. She was buried 8, 9 in Woodlawn cemetery.

With the dawn of today General Milo S. Hascall peacefully passed away at his Chicago home. The long suffering of the soldier, financier and business man terminated with his death from kidney trouble. The illness has existed for years, but only of late did his condition grow serious, and it was only then that those who were around his bedside and contributed to his comfort so much knew that the long years of useful citizenship were being brought to a close.

General Hascall appreciated his condition, but like the grim warrior that he has always been, he fought back death for days and made the grim reaper wait. But the long life had borne its rich fruits, the days and the years had witnessed achievements at every step, and the iron constitution succumbed alone to the weight of so many years. When his sister Mrs. Evaline Chamberlain, died a few days ago the dying soldier was too sick to come and pay his last tribute of respect. He perhaps realized then that a few more days would call from earthly duty another of a family which had left its impress wherever a member has moved.

General Hascall was born in Le Roy, Genesee county, New York, Aug. 5, 1829 and was a descendant of Massachusetts people. Upon the farm and in the common schools and at eighteen he started across across the mountains to his brother's western home in Goshen, beginning as a clerk. He taught school for a term and then entered West Pont in 1848, graduating 4 years later. In his class were Generals Sheridan, Slocum, Polk, Bonaparte and Stanley. He served in Fort Adams R.I., and Old Pont Comfort for a year and returned to Goshen after a season of travel.

For a year General Hascall was a contractor in the building of the old Northern Indiana & Michigan Southern and then he began the study and later the practice of law, being elected prosecutor. His incumbency of the county clerk's office was interrupted by his enlistment in the volunteer service in the war of the rebellion. He was a Captain of the first company formed in Goshen. When his company arrived in Indianapolis too be mustered into either of the six regiments required by the stateand was obliged to disband. Governor Morton recognized the ability of the young captain by appointing him to a captaincy on the staff of General Thomas A. Morris, on whose staff the Goshen military man became an aide-de-camp. In this capacity Captain Hascall organized and drilled six regiments in Camp Morton prepatory to taking the field. He accompanied General Morris to West Virginia soon after and was in the fight at Philippi, the first engagement of the war after Fort Sumnter. The next day he was appointed colonel of the Seventeenth Indiana. Returning to Indianapolis he bore on the way General Morris' report to General McClellan and bore the flag captured at Philippi.

General Hascall was the first soldier to ever recieve a flag of truce sent by Robert E. Lee. His regiment fought in many of the great battles of 1861 and in December Col. Hascall was placed in command of a brigade at Louisville and assigned to General Wood and commanded it at Nashville and Shilo. In 1862, at the battle of Shilo at the close of the engagement, Col. Hascall, recieved the first flag of truce from General Bearegard. In April of that year he was promoted to the brigadier generalship and until 1864 was actively engaged. At the battle of Stone River General Hascall commanded the forces on the left after ten o'clock of the first day. His whole career was one of remarkable success and honer. His achievements meant much to the union cause.

When the war was over General Hascall came back to Goshen and united with the late John W. Iewin in the banking business under the name of the Salem Bank. In 1879 the two bankers engaged with the late John H. Lesh in the manufacture of hardwood lumber on a large scale, the style of the firm John H. Lesh & Co. Much of the product was shipped to foriegn countries. Fourteen years ago General Hascall sold his interest in the bank and removed to Chicago, where he became interested in real estate and found his usual success. He was one of the promotors of the Lexington hotel in Chicago, and the Hascall hotel in Goshen stands as a monument to his enterprise.

Always a republican, since the birth of the party at Jackson, General Hascall was one of the influential members of the party. In 1884 he was one of the electors at large for Blaine and Logan.

Deceased is survived by his wife, formerly Mrs. Rose S. Miller, of Canton O., to whom he was married in 1886, one sister, Antoinette Hascall, and half brother, Frank A. Hascall. The interment of General Hascall will take place Thursday at three o'clock at Oak Park cemetery at Chicago

HASCALL, Milo Smith, soldier, was born in Le Roy, N.Y., Aug. 5, 1829; son of Amasa and Phebe Ann Hascall. He was brought up on his father's farm and attended the district school. In 1847 he settled in Goshen, Ind., and was appointed from that state a cadet in the U.S. military academy, where he was graduated in 1852, assigned to the artillery service and served in garrison duty at Fort Adams, R.I., 1852-53. He resigned from the army to take a contract for building a section of the Indiana & Michigan Southern railroad in 1854. He was admitted to the bar and practised law, serving as prosecuting attorney, and as clerk of courts at Goshen, Ind., 1859-61. He enlisted as a private in a three months' company, was promoted captain and aide-de-camp on the staff of Gen. T. A. Morris and organized and drilled volunteer regiments at Camp Morton. On June 16, 1861, he was present at the first engagement of the war after Sumter where was captured at Philippi the first Confederate flag secured by the Union army in the war and the next day he was promoted colonel of the 17th Indiana volunteers. He commanded a brigade made up of the 15th and 17th Indiana, and the 6th and 43d Ohio volunteers at Louisville, Ky., December, 1861, and was assigned to Gen. William Nelson's division.

On April 25, 1862, he was commissioned brigadier-general of volunteers and led a brigade in the Tennessee campaign, 1862-63. At Stone's River, Dec. 31, 1862, he was in command of a brigade on the extreme left when the engagement commenced. Gen. T. J. Wood, his division commander, was wounded early in the day and retired, which put him in command of the division and by 10 A.M. of that day he was in command of all the troops left fighting and saved the day and the army from utter rout and ruin. After the battle was over he was sent to Indianapolis to return deserters from Ohio, Indiana and Illinois. While thus engaged he was transferred to the army of the Ohio at the request of General Burnside and commanded a division in that army till after the fall of Atlanta. The next day after the battle of Kenesaw Mountain he executed a flank movement which caused the enemy to evacuate that stronghold and retreat precipitately across the Chattahoochee river. He was very prominent in all the engagements [p.129] of the Atlanta campaign and resigned his commission after its fall. He returned to his home and was a banker at Galena, Ind., until 1890 when he removed to Chicago and entered largely into real estate business transactions, making his home at Oak Park, Cook county, Ill.

Milo married 3, 4, 5 (1) Julia A. Swift 1, 2 daughter of Dean Swift and Emeline Winegar on 24 Nov 1855 in Elkhart, Elkhart, Indiana. Julia was born 6, 7 in 1838 in Farmington, Oakland, Michigan.

Died, at the family apartments of the Hotel Hascall, at 5 o'clock a.m. on Tuesday the 11th inst., Julia A. Hascall, wife of Gen. Milo S. Hascall in the 46th year of her age.
Mrs. H. was the eldest daughter of the late Dean Swift and Mrs. Emeline Swift of Elkhart, born in Farmington, Michigan. She spent her early years at Elkhart, taking advantage of its schools and of an excellent private tuition.

On the 27th of November 1855, she was united in marriage to M. S. Hascall and after a short tour came with him to this city where she has since had her home. Two years later their only child died in early infancy.

Mrs. H. was a woman of great energy and fortitude and during the trying days of the war spent a large part of the time with her husband at the front in West Virginia, in Kentucky and in Tennessee. She was possessed of unusual attractiveness of person and of great amiability and sweetness of disposition. She has been a sufferer for years from a most painful malady, which she bore patiently, uncomplainingly, and without the knowledge of even her intimate friends. A protracted stay in the East, from which she returned three weeks since, was without benefit to her health, and upon the discovery of the nature of her disease resort was had to a most distressful surgical operation, but no relief came and her life went out.

Mrs. H. was united with the Presbyterian church of this city in 1869, and has maintained with ardent attachment its communion since. Her death so unexpected by the great mass of our people has produced a profound sensation of grief here, as it will in Elkhart and in other cities where she is known. She leaves a husband, one sister and a widowed mother, who in their deep bereavement have sympathy of the entire community.

They had the following children:

  14074 M i Dean Swift Hascall 1 was born 2, 3 about 1857. He died 4, 5 about 1857. He was buried 6, 7, 8 in Oakridge Cemetery, Goshen, Elkhart, Indiana.

Milo married 2, 3, 4 (2) Ellen L. ... 1 on 1 Oct 1884 in ..., Cuyahoga, Ohio. The marriage ended in divorce.They were divorced 5, 6 on 8 Oct 1885.

Milo married 3, 4 (3) Rose Schwartz 1, 2 daughter of Jacob Schwartz and Catherine Melber on 22 Jun 1887 in ..., Elkhart, Indiana. Rose was born 5, 6, 7 on 11 Sep 1855 in Canton, Stark, Ohio. She died 8, 9, 10, 11 on 21 Oct 1946 in Oak Park, Cook, Illinois. She was buried in Oak Park Cemetery, Chicago, Cook, Illinois.

Mrs. Luseba Ballard, the mother of the late Randolph Ballard, survives all her children

Mrs. Luseba Ballard, mother of the late Randolph Ballard, died this morning about six o'clock of pneumonia, aged 84 years. The funeral services will be held on Friday afternoon at three o'clock at the residence of S.P. Hooker. Rev. Pierre Cushing will officiate.

Mrs Luseba Ballard was born April 4, 1808, and was probably the oldest native born inhabitant of the town of Le Roy, as she was born six years before its formation under the present name, and while it was part of the town of Caledonia. She was the daughter of Maj. Benjamin Ganson and Nancy Hascall. Her father was one of the most promonent of the early settlers, being a son of Captain John Ganson, who emigrated to this "Genesee country" in 1798. Maj. Ganson served the entire was with Great Britain in 1812, and personally led the sortie against Fort Erie.

Mrs. Ballard was married at the age of fifteen to James Ballard, who died at Fort Hall in July 1852, while on his way overland to California with two of his sons.

Mrs. Ballard was the mother of eight children and survived them all. She lived within this town her entire lifetime except five years passed at Niagara Falls and saw its growth from an unbroken wilderness.
For the last five years her mind was enfeebled by age, had gradually failed. She happily had never realized the death of her son Randolph, two years ago.

Mrs. Ballard, during her long and ... career, encountered many trials, but the difficulties under which she labored during the earlier part of her life only served to show her forceful character and the rugged perserverence which the early settlers of this nation possessed in such marked degrees. Her whole life was devoted to her family. She was a member of the Episcopal church for many years.

Luseba married 2, 3 James Ballard 1 in 1823 in Le Roy, Genesee, New York. James was born 4, 5 in 1793 in Massachusetts. He died 6, 7 on 29 Jul 1852 in Fort Hall, Bingham, Idaho.

Our community has seldom been more sensibly shocked than by the intelligence on Friday morning of the death of Randolph Ballard. It was known that a few days previous he had placed himself under the charge of skillful physicians in the hospital at Rochester for a surgical operation for a disease which proved to be of a cancerous nature. The operation was pronounced to be sucessful but in its sad results, proved tpo be otherwise. He gradually sank and passed away, without leaving the spot where the operation was performed.

In noticing the death of the highly esteemed deceased, whose whole life had been spent among us, while no record is at hand for its full outline, enough is known of his character and qualities as a man and citizen to justify the esteem in which he was universally held, and the respect paid to his memory.

Randolph, the eldest son of James Ballard, a pioneer hatmaker of Le Roy, was born in Le Roy in the year 1826 and was 64 years of age at the time of his demise. His father was the head of six children (who arrived at their majority), four sons and two daughters, and he had the usual hard struggle of the early settlers of our village, for their support and maintenance. His mother, Luceba Ganson, still living at the advanced age of 82, was the daughter of Benjamin Ganson, who was the son of Capt. John Ganson sr., the occupant of the first fram opened in Le Roy. She is the last living link connected with the first pioneer of what was then known as the "Ganson settlement." Thus the wave of time is "sweeping into dark eternity" one by one all who began life at the dawn of our history.

The father, James Ballard, was "struck" with the gold fever, on its first discovery in California in 1848, and like thousands of similar adventurers, started across the plains, wher he was fatally attacked by disease, and died before reaching his destination. It was this event which brought the characteristics of Randolph, then just rising into manhood, into prominance. His first thought and aim in life was to secure comfort and support for his widowed mother and her orphan children. How well and how faithfully he labored for this result, his past life is a full history. He was ambitious for an education better than the common schools then afforded, and this he labored
and did acquire. He was always acquisitive for knowledge and was eminently a self taught man. His taste was for the profession of the law, of which he was an diligent student, and which he pursued mostly in the office of Hon. A.P. Hascall. After his admission to the bar he entered at once into its sucessful practise. He soon formed a partnership with Gen. C.F. Bissell, which for many years was one of the most prominent law firms in the country. But it is not proposed to give a detailed history of his professional and business career. It is sufficient to note that his legal qualifications were sufficiently marked to receive the nomination of county judge by the g of the state on the occasion of a vacancy by the death of judge Henshaw. It may be remarked that in all of his business career Mr. B. was distinguished for his fidelity in every trust committed to his charge as well as for his urbanity and suavity of manner in his intercourse with men. He was a democrat with positive opinion, but never offensively obtrusive in enforcing them upon his opponents. He wa especially tolerant and broad minded, liberal in his views of men and measures, and was always willing to award merit where merit was due. In his temoerment he was eminently genial, social in his nature and warmly attached to his friends. In his public, as well as his private life, Mr. B.'s example was always on the side of morality and good order; his tastes were asthetic and were assentially for the improvement and higher elevation of every class and condition in the social scale. Of late he had been in declining health and not engaged in active business. He continued the arrorney and general counsel of the Bank of Le Roy, of which he was a director, and as counselor was a safe and reliable adviser, Although Mr. B. was not connected with any church organization, he was always a liberal supporter of the Episcopal church, of which his family were members.

Mr Ballard in 1866 married Mrs. Louisa Whalin, who died in the following year, leaving two daughters by her first husband - Ida, who died a few years after her mother, and Lillie, who sho survives and is married to S. Percy Hooker, who have made their home with Mr. Ballard, and who, with his aged mother, are the only survivors of his family in Le Roy. He also left a nephew, John Ballard- (son of Frank Ballard) whose residence is in Kansas. None of his brothers, (except possibly Jefferson), or his sisters are now living. It is but another instance of the inroad death has made in our old and prominent families so frequent of late, which will soon lead to the pertinent inquiry "Our fathers, where are they?" In his late home it comes back with a painful certainty, that its chief light has gone out and nothing left but the sweet memory of his devotion and loyalty, and of his open handed liberality and hospitality, which he was ever ready to dispense. It is equally certain that the name and memory of randolph Ballard as a citizen and a man will long be cherished and remembered by the surviviving and contemorary members of this community.

Memoriam to Mrs. Edith L. Hooker, daughter of Col. J.W. Shedd.

Endeared for her many virtues by an extended circle of appreciative and loving relatives and friends, this amiable woman, who but a few months since was in our midst, a happy bride, in the bloom of life, promising herself, no doubt, many years of happiness with those she loved, will be missed from the daily walks of her earthly life. Though hushed forever her kindly voice, still the inspiring influence of her sinless life, will long be felt. To the stricken home ones, we can only whisper the blest assurance that one more angel is in heaven. At rest herself, she leaves to mourn, an affectionate husband, a fond and devoted sister, and a father of many sorrows. In this irreparable loss may the Holy Comforter console the bereaved and maddened household. There is no physician for the human heart in grief like this, but Time and Heaven. Of the departed it may be truly said, "None knew her but to love her." The trembling voice of want or distress never appealed to her in vain; she ever found a pure and manifest pleasure in assisting those in in sorrow or trouble. She has left a void which each and all must deeply feel, and the remembrance of her exemplary life will linger as the odor of flowers for many years in the heart of those who knew and loved her.
        Eda married 2, 3 William Hooker 1 on 1 Sep 1869. William was born 4, 5, 6 on 28 Feb 1843 in Poultney, Rutland, Vermont.




William was a mercantile traveler in the patent medicene business.
