Heup, Mat (c. 1852 - 17 Dec 1907)

Mat Heup, a farmer who lives 4 ½ miles west of here, was fatally wounded in the left leg, by an accidental discharge of Roy Crawshaw’s 40x82 rifle, while out hunting wolves near Smith’s mill last Sunday about 1:30 p.m.

The unfortunate man was brot to his home and Dr. Nedry was called who, after examining the wound, found that the leg had to be amputated, but could not operate on it that day on account of the severe shock. Early Monday morning Dr. Nedry called Dr. Crane to assist him and they amputated the leg. Altho the operation was successful, he died Tuesday night at 6 o’clock from the effects of having lost too much blood before medical aid arrived.

Mr. Heup was born in Milwaukee and was about 55 years of age. He came to this county some five years ago and bought the farm known as the old Klocke place, where he has since lived.

The remains were taken to Sherwood, Wis., for burial. A wife and one little daughter remain to grieve the loss of a good husband and father.
