What is in This Collection?
The collection consists of an index and images of death records in the state of Wisconsin covering the years 1867 to 1907. The state of Wisconsin required its counties to register vital records (birth, marriage, death, and divorce) beginning in 1852. However, only a limited number of these events were actually recorded before 30 September 1907. The existing records prior to 1907 have been collected by the Wisconsin Historical Society. Deaths were recorded to better serve public health needs. They were also used in connection with the probate of wills and the administration of estates.

8 In 1856 he volunteered with the rank of lieutenant in Gen. William Walker's Nicaraguan army. After recruiting men and raising money in the United States, he sailed from New Orleans and arrived in Punta Arenas on January 4, 1857, where he assumed the duties of adjutant to Col. Samuel A. Lockridge. On the retreat down the San Juan River after the unsuccessful assault on Fort Castillo, Hill was wounded when the boiler of the steamer J. N. Scott blew up. HILL, Asa Collingsworth "Colley" (I178)
 
9 Legend suggests that Lawson was shot by Marion Tate, a farm laborer on the Hill Ranch (as listed on the 1860 Census - Calaveras County, California), who was accused by Lawson of having an affair with Euphemia and of taking her to the courthouse to file for divorce. Euphemia did indeed file for divorce on May 12th in 1861, the same day Tate shot Lawson, but was possibly taken there by a neighbor. It is reported that Lawson, in a drunken rage, accused Tate of alienating his wife's affection. In response, Tate shot Lawson. Tate's actions were deemed self-defense on May 13th in 1861. This finding was disputed by Pleasant H. Hill III (grandson of Pleasant H. Hill) in an interview with The Record, a newspaper in Stockton. In that interview, Mr. Hill asserted that it was Tate that started it. HILL, Hugh Lawson White (I3133)

27 "After finding evidence that Rebecca McCandliss Kerr (first wife of George Alexander Kerr) died in the spring of 1833 at Lucy Kerr's cabin at Union Hill I suspect that she may have been a victim of the Cholera Epidemic. On my visitation to the Kerr Creek Farm where Lucy's cabin still stands and the Kerr Cemetery is being cleared, the Historical Society discovered a mass grave on the site thought to be the slaves who died from the epidemic. The following is an excerpt from the Southwestern Historical Quarterly in the Spanish Archives housed at the University of Texas at Austin.
"It is known that the Cholera attacked Guadalupe Victoria on July 5, taking a toll of twentyfive persons; It is also known that the epidemic raged in San Felipe. The Cholera epidemics of 1833 and 1834 attacked the State of Coahuila and Texas so suddenly and so ruthlessly that every activity, except the constant immigration of Anglo-Americans, was paralyzed temporarily. "
George Kerr and his wife Rebecca were living in San Felipe in 1831 when my GGGrandmother Mary Amanda Jane Kerr was born. Were they still in San Felipe when the epidemic hit or were they living at Lucy's place? Either way it's quite possible that Rebecca died from the Cholera since it not only hit San Felipe it also hit Washington County and Union Hill as verified by the mass grave at Lucy's place. There is no record of Rebecca and George having another child except Amanda Jane. Could she have died in childbirth and the baby did not survive? I can find nothing in family letters, ect. to indicate that is the case. So my belief is that she was probably a victim of the Cholera.
I'm still researching this at this time. If anyone else who sees this can shed any light on what really happened to Rebecca I'd appreciate the info."

MCCANDLESS, Rebecca (I169)
 
30 "After leaving college, he travelled with his pupil through
various countries, and he was thus enabled to perfect himself
in several living languages. In the course of their travels
they went to London, and they remained there long enough to
allow my father to fall in love with a very interesting and ac-
complished young lady named Thompson. She was of good
family, spoke the French language with fluency ; she played very
well upon the Spinette, and was altogether a remarkably well
educated person. My father was obliged to return to France,
but before they parted they exchanged portraits, and promised
to be constant to each other until they could meet again."
