George H. Daniels
"George Daniels' Early Romance,"
The Elgin Daily News, July 2, 1908, p. 1.
Woos and Wins Southern Girl During the Civil War.
MEMBER OF VETERAN POST
Ashes of Dead New York Central Official to be Buried Here.
With the announcement of the death of George H. Daniels, general passenger agent of the New York Central lines, old friends in this city call to mind Elgin's first war romance during the rebellion in 1861. While a Union soldier boy the man who later rose to prominence as a railway authority wooed and married a southern girl in New Berne, N.C. He returned home with his bride but she was ill and could not become accustomed to the north. She lived but a year. Later he married a second time.
Friend of L.B. Hamlin.
While serving in the war, Mr. Daniels and L.B. Hamlin of this city first formed the acquaintance that later developed into a strong friendship. Both were members of the First Marine Artillery regiment of New York, an organization that served eight months in '62 and '63 and later disbanded.
Following his service with the Marine Artillery, George H. Daniels became a pilot for the Union army along the Carolina coast. He served in that capacity for several months.
Upon the close of the Civil war the deceased became a member of Veteran Post, Grand Army of the Republic, of this city. In this society he retained his membership always, although for more than twenty years, while located in the east, he could not attend any of the meetings.
Body to Be Cremated.
The remains of the deceased will in all probability be brought to this city for burial at Bluff City cemetery. No definite word has been received by friends here to this effect but as both his wives are buried here, it is presumed that this will be done. The body will undoubtedly be taken to Troy, N.Y., for cremation and the ashes brought to Elgin for interment at the Wilber-Daniels lot in the local cemetery.
Mr. and Mrs. W.H. Cloudman left Elgin at noon today for the east. They will attend the funeral services to be held at 2:30 o'clock at the family home in Buffalo, N.Y., Friday.

"War Veteran Drops Dead,"
The Elgin Daily News, May 11, 1909, p. 1.
Sheridan Dickson Fatally Stricken
While At Work Early This Morning.
Came to Illinois 60 Years Ago--
Was Well Known Hampshire Resident.
On his twenty-eighth wedding day, after suffering from heart disease for twenty years, Sheridan Dickson, 128 Vine street, suddenly fell dead in one of Armour & Company's wagons shortly after 6 o'clock this morning near the corner of Spring and Chicago streets. The coroner found the death due to heart disease.
Mr. Dickson came to Illinois in 1850 and served through the Civil war with Company C of Elgin, Fifty-second infantry. He has been a resident of Elgin for the past sixteen years.
He bid his wife good-bye this morning a little after 5 o'clock to assist A.W. Hintt, who lives at 220 Seneca street and has charge of the Armour meat car and wagons. Mr. Dickson has for some time been assisting in delivering meat from the cars on Tuesdays and Fridays. Of late he has had no other regular occupation.
Going from his home straight to the Milwaukee tracks, he helped in sorting the meat, and then started with Mr. Hintt on the regular round. They had called at several meat markets and made deliveries, before reaching Leitner Bros., 201 Chicago street. Here, according to the testimony of Mr. Hintt at the coroner's inquest in the city hall, Mr. Dickson handed from the wagon a sheep, then first one and then a second hind-quarter of beef. Mr. Hintt carried these into the store. When he returned his companion was lying in the wagon, motionless.
"What's the matter with you, 'Dad', are you sick?" he asked. There was no reply. Meantime George A. Gannon, janitor of the Tyrrell and other nearby buildings, had seen Dickson gradually sink into the wagon and lie still. As he came up Mr. Hintt threw a blanket over the fallen man, and the two carried the body into the office of Dr. Lewis W. Dudley, in the Sherwin block. The physician saw at once that life was extinct and the body was taken to the home.
Mrs. Dickson bore up bravely. She had expected the fatality for some time, she said. Her husband had carried medicine with him constantly, for the complaint. Twenty years ago, she said, he had suffered a paralytic stroke and had been troubled with his heart at intervals ever since.
Besides Mrs. Dickson, one sister, Mrs. L.E. Gleason of San Juan, Cal., and three brothers survive. The brothers are Corridan D. and Edwin, both of Hampshire, Ill., and Lafayette of Drayne, Ore. There are no children, but Mrs. E.A. Mooney of Douglas avenue is an adopted daughter.
Mr. Dickson was born in Birmingham, N.Y., Nov. 21, 1840, and settled at Hampshire, Ill., May 13, 1850. Until coming to Elgin he was engaged in farming.

Funeral services over the remains of Sheridan Dixon, who died suddenly yesterday morning, will be held at the home, 128 Vine street, tomorrow afternoon, at 1:30 o'clock and at Grace M.E. church at 2 o'clock. Interment in Bluff City cemetery.
A general attendance of members of the G.A.R. is planned.
Royal L. Dodge
"Royal L. Dodge Taken By Death,"
The Elgin Courier-News, September 5, 1928, pp. 1, 3.
Retired Watch Worker And Civil War Veteran Dies at 86.
Royal Louis Dodge, veteran watch factory employee and well known Elgin resident, died at his home, 314 East Chicago street, yesterday afternoon, following a short illness. Had the Civil war veteran lived until October 6 he would have been 87 years of age.
Mr. Dodge had been employed in the machine department at the Elgin National Watch company for 49 years, retiring from active service September 30, 1927. He had lived in Elgin for over 50 years. He was a master mechanic and an expert workman at the factory.

Born October 6, 1841, in Bridgton, Mr. Dodge was the youngest son of a family of eleven children. At the age of 20, when the Civil war started, he enlisted in the 12th Maine Infantry, but was discharged from the service in 1862 because of illness. In 1864, however, he again enlisted, serving with the 4th Maine Light Artillery, and participated in the battles of the Wilderness, Cold Harbor, Spotsylvania and around Petersburg.
Upon the close of the war Mr. Dodge returned to Bridgton and in 1865 he commenced to learn the machining trade, in Hudson, Mass. After working for the Putnam Machine company at Fitchburg, Mass., he came to Elgin in May 1877. He entered the watch factory the same month and worked there for 49 years. After his retirement from the factory his name was placed upon the pension roll.
He was married to Miss Nettie O. Neal in Ackworth, N.H., previous to coming to Elgin. Two children were born of the union, Mrs. Florence Branford, of Elgin, wife of the late Edmund Branford, and Burton R. Dodge, who was killed in 1917 while at work at the Aetna Chemical works in Oakdale, Pa. His wife preceded him in death many years ago.

Thomas M. Dougherty
"Real Estate Man Takes Own Life in Lonely Spot,"
The Elgin Daily News, November 17, 1911, p. 1.
Thomas M. Dougherty's Body Found in Woods South of Elgin.
NOTE TELLS OF TRAGEDY
Letter to Wife Describes Financial Difficulties and Despondency.
Thomas M. Dougherty, 705 Linden avenue, pioneer Kane county resident, and for the last fifteen years an Elgin real estate dealer suicided last night in a woods a half mile south of the Fox River switch. Financial difficulties are declared the cause. His body was discovered by Albert Dunning, 518 Wellington avenue at 9 o'clock this morning.
Coroner Holds Note Evidence.
Although the method Dougherty employed to take his life is not definitely known, a letter dated November 15, and addressed to his wife, which was found in his pocket explained his act. After finding the letter, Coroner Eugene H. Norton decided that an autopsy would not be necessary to determine the cause of death. It is believed that Dougherty took morphine tablets.
"I have tried for a week not to do this--but must. All of my keys are in my pocket." This postscript was written in pencil at the end of the three page letter addressed to his wife. The letter was written with ink. It was written Wednesday and the postscript was undoubtedly appended yesterday.
Financial difficulty was the cause given in the letter for his suicide. A portion of the letter follows:
Calls His Life Failure.
"I have worked hard for 66 years, but guess that I have made a failure out of life. You have been such a good wife that I could not bear to tell you of my business troubles. I have been going into debt, but thought that business would get better. I hate to go and leave you and the 'kiddie' but can't stand to lose the respect of the men with whom I have long been associated."
"My Dear and Darling Ora," is the way the letter started. In concluding the letter he said, "Goodbye forever." Under the conclusion of the letter there were several crosses, designated as kisses for his wife and baby.
Dougherty left home as usual yesterday morning about 9 o'clock for his office in the Sherwin block. Two hours later he notified his wife that he would remain down town to the Commercial club's luncheon at the Y.M.C.A. He did not attend the luncheon and the last time he was seen alive was about 1 o'clock on Fountain square.
Last evening when he did not return home for supper, his wife and neighbors instituted a search for him in the vicinity of Lord's park. During the time that the search was being made Mrs. Dougherty intimated that he might have suicide. This morning the police were notified of Dougherty's disappearance. While his son Frank was at the police station the message that an elderly man had been found dead near the Fox river switch, was received.
Tragedy Partial Mystery.
When or how Dougherty reached the lonely spot where his body was found is not known. No one saw him in the vicinity. His body lay in a gravel pit south of Poplar creek, between the Milwaukee and third-rail tracks and about eight hundred feet west of the St. Charles road.
There were no marks of violence or evidence of a struggle on the body. He was lying on his back with his arms folded across his chest. His overcoat was tightly buttoned about him, he wore his gloves and his hat pulled securely down on his head. His watch, several dollars and some valuable papers were unmolested in his pockets. Indications were that he had been dead about ten hours when found. His watch stopped at 9:35 o'clock, but whether that was last night or this morning is not known.
Switch Tender Sees Body.
Where the body lay it was in plain view of Dunning when he reached the top of a light tower on the Milwaukee road, near the St. Charles road, where he was refilling the lanterns. After discovering the body and ascertaining that the man was dead, Dunning notified D.A. Monroe, who in turn notified the police.
Suicide Verdict Returned.
At the inquest this afternoon the coroner's jury returned the following verdict. "That Thomas M. Dougherty came to his death by taking poison, nature of which is unknown to this jury, with suicidal intent, while temporarily deranged."
Thomas M. Dougherty was born December 2, 1845, on the Isle of Nantucket. When he was but six months old his parents came west to Illinois, settling on a farm at Plato. He served throughout the Civil war with the Union army. After returning from the war he secured employment with the Western Newspaper Co., of Chicago, by which concern he was employed for twenty-five years ago. For a number of years he had been in the real estate and insurance business here with J.H. Garrison under the firm name of Garrison & Dougherty.
Mr. Dougherty was married twice. His first wife was Miss Viola Merrill. His second wife, who was Miss Ora B. Britton, survives him. Other survivors are two children, a son, Frank, and a daughter, Mercy, two years old.
"Funeral Plans Outlined By Suicide in Letter,"
The Elgin Daily News, November 18, 1911, p. 1.
SERVICES FOR THOMAS M. DOUGHERTY
TO BE HELD AS HE DIRECTED
Police Discover That He Slept In South End Barn.
Funeral services over the remains of Thomas M. Dougherty, who committed suicide in a woods half a mile south of Elgin some time Thursday night, are to be carried out according to his requests, made in his farewell letter to his wife. The funeral is to be held tomorrow afternoon.
"Give me just a plain military funeral, in charge of the G.A.R.," was a portion of the request made in the latter. "Have Mrs. Ada Blackman sing, "When We Get to the End of the Way". A few other details concerning the service were included in the letter.
Officers of the Elgin Post No. 49, G.A.R., of which Mr. Dougherty had been an active member for a number of years, were notified of his request and will comply with it. Mrs. Blackman is to sing his favorite hymn.
Sergeant Pearl Robinson, who was detailed on the case yesterday afternoon, learned that some one had been in J.H. Martin's barn at 920 Lavoie avenue Thursday night. Footprints leading from the barn toward the pasture where Dougherty's body was found were the same size as his. The man wore rubbers, so did Dougherty.
That the man who was in Martins' (sic) barn was not a tramp is evident from the fact that a good overcoat and other clothing which was in the barn were not taken. A fire had been started in a small stove. Martins (sic) said that the barn was not entered before 9 o'clock.
Relatives of Dougherty's stated today that he had given no intimation of suicide. Wednesday evening his mother-in-law visited with him and his wife. He was in unusually good spirits and spoke of his plans for the future. Wednesday afternoon he raked the lawn at his residence, 705 Linden avenue and put on storm doors and windows.
Andrew N. Downer
"Elgin Man Dies On Anniversary,"
The Elgin Daily News, January 10, 1908, p. 1.
A.N. Downer Passes Away Forty-One Years After His Wedding Day.
MEMBER OF VETERAN POST
Pioneer Chicago Lumber Dealer Belonged to Board of Trade Battery.
Dying on his forty-first wedding anniversary was the fate of Andrew N. Downer, a well known Elgin man, who passed away at his home, 36 Hill street, at 3:05 o'clock this morning. Deceased was 73 years of age.
While visiting a brother in Wisconsin early in September, Mr. Downer was stricken with the illness from which he never recovered. For more than a month he was confined to his bed. The end came peacefully and members of the family were present.
Civil War Veteran.
Mr. Downer enlisted in the famous Chicago Board of Trade battery, serving in the Civil War for four months. He was wounded at Bowling Green, Ky., this injury necessitating his remaining out of the service. He was a member of the Veteran Post, G.A.R., of this city, and friends in this organization will act as pallbearers.
A.N. Downer was a pioneer lumber man of Chicago. He was born at West Vienna, Oneida county, N.Y., June 4, 1834. His father died in 1849, and Mr. Downer later moved to Chicago. There he was yard manager for the Ludington, Wells & Van Shock company. In 1879 he moved to Cass county, Iowa and engaged in farming and stock raising.

John S. Dumser
"John S. Dumser Dies at 102,"
The Elgin Daily Courier-News, December 9, 1949, pp. 1, 3.
One of the last Veterans of Civil War
Former Elginite National Figure In Grand Army
John S. Dumser, one of the few surviving veterans of the Civil War and for 40 years a resident of Elgin before moving to the west coast in 1900, died shortly after midnight this morning in the Veterans Administration hospital in Oakland, Calif., at the age of 102.
Considering his age, he was in remarkable health right up to the end. Thanksgiving Day, he gave his usual reception to fellow patients and friends in the lobby of the hospital from 2 to 4 in the afternoon.
The following day--his birthday--there was a family reunion attended by his daughter and son, six grandchildren and seven great-grandchildren at the home of his granddaughter, Mrs. Lucy Thomas Stone, 3718 Randolph Street, Oakland.
Had Keen Memory.
Dr. Dumser explained that he went to the veterans' hospital for 'safe keeping'. His eyesight wasn't what it used to be and while he could walk even without a cane, he was subject to falls. It was a series of falls that sent him to the hospital. Mentally, the grand old man was as keen as ever and his memory, only a few days ago, went back nearly 100 years.
His last visit in Elgin was in 1938, when he stopped here on his way back from the G.A.R. encampment at Gettysburg. He was accompanied by a grandson, Everett B. Howe, at that time an assistant professor at the University of California. In an interview with a representative of The Courier-News, he was able to recall all of the more important happenings during his life that time, giving the approximate dates.
Outlived G.A.R. Posts.
On his 100th birthday, two years ago, he amazed west coast newspapermen who interviewed him by telephone. Hal Johnson, an Oakland writer, commented:
"He caught every one of our questions without repetitions and his answers came with the alacrity of the famous Quiz Kids. When I asked what G.A.R. post he belonged to, he shot back, 'Don't belong to any now. I outlived two of them, Admiral D.D. Porter in Oakland and Veteran post 49, in Elgin, Ill."
Word of Colonel Dumser's death was received in Elgin this morning by his only living sister-in-law, Mrs. David J. Dumser, 316 S. State Street, and his several nieces and nephews residing in this city.
National Figure In G.A.R.
Colonel Dumser was a national figure in the Grand Army of the Republic over a long span of years. He was one of the organizers of Veteran post in this city and outlived all of his fellow members by several years. As far back as 1938, he was the only living member of the famous 52nd Illinois Civil War regiment, recruited in this area.
Up to a few years ago, he had attended every national convention of the G.A.R. and was commander-in-chief of the organization in 1942-1943. Previously, he had had three terms as adjutant-general and quarter-master general. He had also held practically every important post, including that of commander, in Veteran post in this city, Admiral Porter post in Oakland and in the G.A.R.'s California-Nevada department.
Born in Chicago.
He was born near Chicago Nov. 25, 1847. He enlisted in the Union Army at the age of 16, Feb. 4, 1863, and served throughout the balance of the Civil War with Company K of the 52nd Illinois Infantry.
During the war, he saw rugged service. He was in the bloody battle of Chickamauga Sept. 20, 1863, when the northern commander, Gen. W.S. Rosencrans was defeated by Gen, Braxton Bragg's forces. He was also in action at Kennesaw Mountain near Marietta, Ga., and went through the 100 days of fighting at Snake Creek Gap and Recaca, Ga.
Then, he was with General Sherman on the famous march from "Atlanta to the Sea", which spelled the beginning of the end for the Southern cause. During the siege of Atlanta, Colonel Dumser was sunstruck and was in critical condition for a time. He was returned to Chicago for hospitalization.
After the war, he came to Elgin and in 1868 entered the employ of the Elgin National Watch Co., working in the motion room until 1899, when he retired in anticipation of moving to California. It was here that he married Miss Mary Benham, who died nine years ago at the age of 90.
He is survived by a daughter, Mrs. Winnifred Howe and a son, Raymond B. Dumser, both of Oakland, Calif.; six grandchildren and seven great grandchildren.
Funeral services will be held in Oakland, Calif., Monday. The time and details have not yet been received here.
David J. Dyer
The Elgin Daily News, November 29, 1909, p. 3.
David J. Dyer, aged 64 years, formerly a resident of this city, died at the Soldiers' home at Milwaukee Friday night after a prolonged illness.
Mr. Dyer was formerly a resident of this city and until three years ago was an employee of the Creamery Package company. At that time ill health compelled him to retire to the home at Milwaukee. Being a native of New York state, he was a veteran of the 26th New York infantry, and later of the 19th Michigan cavalry.
A widow and son Harry of this city survive him. Both attended the funeral this morning at Milwaukee, where the aged man had requested to be buried.
"Major W.W. Dygert, Well Known Elgin Character, Is Dead,"
The Elgin Daily News, January 20, 1923, p. 1.
Major W.W. Dygert, for fourteen years a drum major in the Elgin band, died this morning at 1:30 o'clock at his home at 221 National street, after a long illness.
