Biography* Joseph Abden Clancy, 1877-1913:
The fourth of eight children, Joseph was born in Hebron Township, McHenry County, Illinois, and grew up on farms in the area. After his marriage he worked as a farm laborer in Chemung Township in McHenry County and in Walworth County, Wisconsin. By 1910, Joseph had assumed the operation of his father's dairy farm in south Hebron and was paying his father rent.

Joseph died suddenly on a Thursday near Waukesha, Wisconsin. His funeral was held on Monday from Saint Joseph's Church in Harvard with the Rev. Kearney of Saint Patrick's in Hartland officiating. Pall bearers were Joseph W. Hayden, John (or Richard) Burke, Chas O'Holleran, Joseph McGuire, Frank Leonard, and Daniel Shields. There is conflicting evidence on both Joseph's birth and death dates. His obituary lists his birth year as 1876 but 1877 is listed on his tombstone. His death date is listed as 11 September in his obituary but 12 September on his tombstone.

Biography* Mary K. Clancy Gerber, 1880-1968:
The fifth of eight children, Mary was born on a farm in McHenry County, Illinois, and grew up on farms in the Hebron-Richmond area. When her mother Susan died soon after giving birth in 1886, the new born infant, also named Susan, was raised by a neighbor. Mary's father Edward kept the rest of the family together. Mary, as the oldest female in the house, assumed many of the household duties. She had not yet reached her sixth birthday! Mary took mothering very seriously. She stayed at home and didn't marry until she was 29 - after all her siblings had married or left. Characteristically, she also assumed responsibility for keeping family members in touch with each other after her father died. Circa 1906, her brother Hugh took Mary to South Dakota to visit their uncle John Clancy. It was there that Mary met her future husband, Henry F. Gerber. Her marriage on a Wednesday was officiated by the Rev. Thomas Kearney, Pastor of Saint Patrick's. Her sister, Martha, was the bridesmaid and Martha's husband, "Con" Haley, was best man. The ceremonies were followed with a dinner for the immediate relatives at her father's home in Hebron.

Mary was fiercely proud of her Irish heritage and deeply immersed in her Catholic faith. She also was not above embellishing the truth to improve appearances. On her marriage license, she listed her race as Celtic and her birthplace as Lake Geneva, Wisconsin. In the wedding announcement published in both the Hebron and Woodstock newspapers, she wrote that, "The groom is engaged in the real estate business at Worthing, being a member of the firm of Gerber Bros.. He was among the young men from that state to enlist in the Spanish-American War and saw service in the Phillipines, where he rose to the rank of Captain and has the distinction of having been voted by congress a medal for bravery in the service." Mary spelled her second name with a "K" until sometime after the birth of her first daughter and before the birth of her second. After that time she spelled it "Catherine." Mary was determined that her daughters receive the best and highest education possible. When the girls were to enter high school, Mary decided that the opportunities in Lincoln County were limited. So, she rented lodgings in Sioux Falls and took the girls there every Monday morning, returning to Worthing on Friday evening. Both girls graduated from Cathedral High School in Sioux Falls and subsequently from Clarke College in Dubuque, Iowa. She liked to recite poetry. One of her favorites was "Abou Ben Adhem" by Leigh Hunt.

When her uncle John Clancy died in 1916, he left her his house and lot in Worthing6. Mary sold the house to Thomas A. Clark on 20 August 1919 for $800. In 1940 - her husband Henry had died in 1934 - Mary moved permanently to Sioux Falls. On 30 July 1941, she and daughters Helen and Dorothy sold the house in Worthing located on the northeast corner of Third and Poplar Streets7 to Caroline O. Clark of Worthing for $1 and other valuable considerations. Per the terms of Henry Gerber's final probate decree this piece of property was owned equally by Mary, Helen, and Dorothy. According to the Deputy Register of Deeds, Lincoln County the fee of $1.20 on this transaction indicates the selling price was $1,200 ($1 fee per $1000 value). On 26 August 1941, she purchased, in the names of her daughters, the house at 628 North Prairie Avenue, Sioux Falls8 from S. B. and Ellamay Nissen for $1 and other valuable considerations. Using the same formula as that used to calculate the selling price of the Worthing house, the house in Sioux Falls cost $2,200 (fee of $2.20).

Mary, age 88, died on a Thursday of arteriosclerosis . She was survived by her two daughters, 11 grandchildren, 10 great-grandchildren and two sisters. A funeral mass was celebrated on Saturday at Saint Joseph's Cathedral in Sioux Falls. She was buried in Worthing - against her wishes! Mary wanted to be buried in Saint Michael's cemetery in Sioux Falls - not in Worthing. She wanted her husband Henry moved to Saint Michael's also. Her family, however, decided to bury her in Worthing next to Henry. Mary managed to express her displeasure from the great beyond, to the nervous amusement of the family. For years afterward, grass would not grow on her gravesite! The house on North Prairie was sold to Paul J. and Recka Kayl for $1 and valuable considerations on 27 September 1968.9

Biography* Martha Clancy Haley, 1883-1977:
The seventh of eight children, Martha grew up on a farm south of Hebron in McHenry County, Illinois. Martha's birth year was recorded as 1883 in McHenry County but as 1884 in her Social Security record (Wonder what proof of birth was provided in her Social Security application?). Before her marriage, Martha served as a nurse at the Cottage Hospital in Harvard. In her marriage license, she listed herself as Irish and that she was born in Genoa Junction, Wisconsin! Martha's noon wedding was a large one. Anna O'Connor, niece of the groom, was the ring bearer. Maude Hayes of Harvard (Illinois) played and sang. Garrett W. Fitzgerald and her brother T. Hugh Clancy were the ushers. Marie Downes, Mae Coates, Mary Collins, Margaret McConnell, all from Harvard, Agnes Fitzgerald and Josie Fitzgerald, both from Alden (Illinois) acted as servers at the reception following which was held at the bride's home. Out of town relatives who attended the festivities included M/M Wm. Cook, M/M R. E. O'Connor, M/M J. P. Sullivan, M/M P. H. Haley, her brother Atty/Mrs John D. Clancy, all of Chicago; M/M Dennis Haley of Deadwood, South Dakota, Edw. Haley of Saint Paul, Minnesota; Atty. A. Gates White of Garden Prairie, Illinois and her brother Edward A. Clancy of Carpentersville, Illinois. The best man's surname is variously spelled in accounts of the wedding as Henley, Herley, and Herely. After the marriage, Martha and husband lived for a time on the Haley home farm in Hartland Township. By 1920, they were living in Woodstock at 310 Judd Street. In 1952, they were living in West Allis, Wisconsin. In 1961, in Algoma, Wisconsin. Martha moved from Algoma to Sun City, Arizona in 1976.

Biography* Susan Mae Clancy Behringer, 1886-1969:
Five days after Susan was born, her mother died. Since her father Edward was lacking the necessary equipment to cope with a new-born, Susan was raised by friends in the nearby town of Alden, Illinois. The friends were Michael O'Brien and his second wife, Mary Nolan Croak. In addition to being good friends, there were also family connections with the O'Briens and Nolans. Michael O'Brien's daughter Isabelle, by his first wife, was married to Edward Clancy's nephew, John James Clancy, a Chicago policeman. Mary Nolan Croak was a sister of John James Clancy's mother, Catherine Nolan. Susan lived with the O'Brien's until her marriage in 1907. Circa 1902, Michael O'Brien retired and Susan moved with the family from Alden to 407 West Blackman in Harvard's 1st Ward. At her wedding, Miss Maude Hayes was the organist and Miss Christina Boodel (of Baraboo, Wisconsin) sang. John W. Phalen and her brother T. Hugh Clancy were ushers. Relatives from out ot town included Edward Clancy father of the bride, brothers Joe & E. Clancy (both of Hebron), James McQuirk (of Chicago), and Richard Croak & family (of Hartland). After the wedding, she and her husband lived with the O'Brien's. By 1918, they were living at 468 Jackson in Woodstock. By 1931, they were living at 702 Grove Street in Waukegan, Illinois. After her husband died in 1931, Susan returned to Woodstock where she lived at 303 Washington. By 1940, she had moved to 231 N Thorp. By 1944, she had apparently left Woodstock. And by 1952, Susan was living at 302 North Bendino Street, San Pedro, California.

Susan, age 83, died on a Friday. She was survived by two daughters, one son, 19 grandchildren and several great-grandchildren. Her funeral was held on Wednesday from Saint Mary's church in Woodstock. The Schneider-Leucht-Merwin-Cooney funeral home was in charge of arrangements.

Biography* Henry F. Gerber, 1870-1934:
Henry and his twin brother, "Fred Jr", were christened together at Keyesville - a mission of Saint Luke's parish which is in the village of Plain in Sauk County, Wisconsin - on 11 June 1870 by the Rev. Theophilus Beau. Conrad Zilg and Maria Neuheisel, Augusta's sister, sponsored both children. "Fred Jr" is listed first in the register. This is the only evidence that Henry might be the younger of the two. Henry grew to 5 feet 4 inches in height, with dark complexion, large dark grey eyes, and dark hair. In 1894, Henry F. and and his twin brother, Fred, bought a 160-acre farm a mile northwest of Worthing. He was a farmer until 16 November 1907, when he became a rural mail carrier. He carried the mail on Route 2 out of Worthing until his death.

His daughters remebered him as a kind and gentle man who shunned confrontation and never raised his voice. Henry was born left-handed but was forced by teachers to write with his right hand. He had an aptitude for arithmetic. Henry loved sports. One Thanksgiving, Henry and a priest from Worthing went to Sioux Falls to watch a football game. After the game, they were hungry so they stopped and ate at a restaurant. Needless to say, when Henry got home he was too full to eat the dinner that Mary Clancy had prepared. Mary was not happy. Henry's first sports love was baseball. He would travel to Sioux Falls, a distance of some 16-miles, to get the latest scores posted outside the Argus-Leader newpaper offices.

On 25 April 1898, at the age of 27, Henry enrolled in the U.S. Army to serve during the Spanish-American war for up to two years. On the same day, he was mustered into the 1st Infantry Regiment of the South Dakota Volunteers as a Sargent and assigned to Company D. He was mustered out at the Presidio in San Francisco, California on 5 October 1899 as a 1st Sargent. Henry served as Sargent from 25 April 1898 to 10 September 1899 and as 1st Sergent from 11 September 1899 to 5 October 1899. List of battles, engagements, skirmishes, expeditions: Spanish American War in the Phillipines, 1898; Filippino Insurrection, 1899.

Detailed list of engagements: Trenches near Manila, February 23; San Francisco del Monte, March 25; Mayuemayan (??), March 26; Marilao, March 27; Santa Maria River, March 29; Guiguireto, March 29; Santa Isabel, March 30; Malolos, March 31; Pulilan, 1st trench, April 24; Pulilan, 2nd trench, April 24; Columfrit, April 25; San Torrias, May 4; repulse of enemy's attack, May 25; Turning, movement, Fernando, May 26.

Henry returned home after the war and resumed farming with brother Fred. In 1900, he was living with his brother George. After his marriage in 1909, he lived on the farm in Lynn Township until 1915. On 29 March of that year, Henry purchased a house and lot on Poplar Street in Worthing5 from John and Irena Huseboe of Carson, South Dakota for $1500.

When Henry had completed his 25th year of service on the rural mail route in Worthing, wife Mary entertained the post office force at a surprise dinner to celebrate the event. When Henry started carrying mail, he used a team of horses and it took him nearly all day to make the route of 28 miles. There were few roads then and it was necessary to cut through fields. The winters were also more severe [Note: The winters were always 'worse' back then weren't they?] making it a much harder trip. The route is 27 miles today and takes about two and a half to three hours when the roads are good. There are but five miles of graveled road on the present route.

Henry, 64, died at his home in Worthing on a Friday. He had been a member of I.O.O.F. Lodge of Worthing for 41 years, and also a member of Beaver Rebekah Lodge of Worthing and of Jonas H.

Biography* Lucy Milicent White Clancy, 1883-1972:
Born Lucy Milicent White, she was often referred by her middle name Milicent. Lucy was the second of six daughters born to Aurelius Gates and Mary Childs. Her father Aurelius was born in Illinois to a father born in New York and a mother born in England. Lucy's mother Mary was born in New York. We are not sure where Mary's parents were born. Lucy's Social Security Death Index and her county death record list her birth year as 1883; her tombstone is inscribed 1882. Milicent was a strong-willed woman and very independent for her time. She would take her children to the family farm in Lake County, Michigan for vacations. The farm was located outside of Baldwin, Michigan about 65 miles north of Grand Rapids on what is now state highway 37. The trip from Riverside to the farm was about 264 miles. Without interstates and divided highways, the trip probably took in excess of 7 hours. They stayed in a log cabin at the farm, devoid of electricity and running water.

In later years the widow Milicent lived at 539 Duane Avenue in Glen Ellyn, Dupage County, Illinois. She died on a Friday, at age 88, at the Mary-Margaret Manor in Elgin, Illinois. Cause of death was progressive cerebral sclerosis and thrombosis from which she had been suffering for 5 years. She was attended by Albert Simon (MD) of Elgin. The funeral service was held in Elgin on Monday.

Biography* Bernice Behringer Gustie, 1911-1999:
On Monday, 4 October 1931, voting began in Waukegan, Illinois to pick the most popular girl in the Waukegan-North Chicago area. The contest was sponsored and promoted by the Waukegan News-Sun in conjunction with 25 area merchants. Nominations closed on 10 October and voting ended six weeks later on Saturday, 14 November. The winner would receive an all expense paid 2-week trip to the Bermuda Islands on a Furness-Bermuda liner. On Sunday, the 16th of November,the newspaper announced the winner - Miss Lillian Hendrickson. The next day, the newspaper had to announce that a mistake had been made (oops!). Only 24 of the 25 boxes of ballots had been counted. When ballots in the mislaid box were counted, Bernice Behringer vaulted into the lead, claiming first place by a comfortable margin. The sponsors solved their sticky problem by sending both girls to Bermuda.

At the time of the contest, Bernice was living at her parent's home at 702 Grove Street and had been employed by F. W. Woolworth & Company for two years. A year later, Bernice was married by her pastor Joseph F. Cussen. After the honeymoon she and her new husband lived at 517 Lorraine Avenue. Circa 1945, the family moved to California. And within a year, Bernice and family had settled in San Pedro.

The photograph was taken in 1933 and includes first cousins Jeanette, Bernice, and Marion Behringer, Helen Gerber, and Darlene Haley.

Biography* Augusta Neuheisel Gerber, 1838-1903:
Born in what is now the German state of Saarland, Augusta came to the United States at the age of six years with her parents and her younger brother Balthasar. The family sailed from La Havre, France on board the Duchess D'Orleans captained by A. Richardson and arrived at the Port of New York on 5 September 1844. The Neuheisels spent their first six years in Hudson Township, Walworth County, Wisconsin before finally settling in Franklin Township in Sauk County circa 1851. Augusta was listed as Justine Neuheisel in seven christenings at Saint Luke's in Plain, Wisconsin between 1854 and 1870 including four of her own children. She was never listed as Augusta in Saint Luke's records and was never listed as Justine anywhere else. On 17 August 1891, "Augustine" and Fred sold 160-acres to their sons Fred Jr and Henry. Augusta marked the deed. In February 1892, "Augustena" and Fred sold 160-acres to Paul Ysbranda. Again she marked the deed.

Augusta, age 65, died at her home on a Saturday. She had been in poor health for several years. Circa 1899, Augusta went to California to try a change of climate but no relief was found so she returned to Worthing. Services were held at the Catholic church on Monday with the Rev. Boley officiating. Augusta was buried in the Worthing cemetery next to her daughter, Eliza Snyder, who had predeceased her. Sometime after her husband's death, she was moved next to him.
     So let her sleep that dreamless sleep,
     No sorrows clustering round her head,
     Be comforted, ye loved who weep,
     She lives with God -- she is not dead.

Biography* George Gerber, 1865-1919:
George was christened on 27 December 1865 at Saint Aloysius in Sauk City, Wisconsin by the Rev. Michael Heisse. He was sponsored by his uncle Philip Neuheisel. Although christened in the Catholic church, George did not practice that faith as an adult. He probably belonged to the Congregational church in Worthing as did his father. George came to Lincoln County, South Daktoa with his parents circa 1872. He worked as a farmer. In 1900, he was renting his house in Lynn township. By 1910, he was in La Valley Township. By 1915, he owned the farm.

George's death date is listed on his tombstone but it hasn't been transcribed nor photographed. The Argus Leader and Daily Press (Sioux Falls) were searched for an obituary but none were found. According to an item in the "Worthing" column of Canton, South Dakota's Sioux Valley News on Thursday, 6 Novermber 1919, George's funeral was held on Wednesday from the Congregationl church, Rev Fifield of Sioux Falls officiating. Although the day before the newspaper was published, 5 November, was a Wednesday, the item probably is referring to the previous Wednesday, 29 October.
