Huntzsicker, Jean "Jennie" Wight McCauley (1876 - 10 May 1899)

The sad intelligence of the death of Mrs. Victor E. Huntzsicker, which occurred, as chronicled in the last issue of this paper, on Wednesday, May 10th, at Salt Lake City, came in the nature of a great surprise and cast a sudden gloom over almost the entire community. She was a much loved and highly respected young woman of this city (Neillsville, Clark County), and upon her departure with her husband for their new home in the West, carried with her the esteem of a host of friends who now join in the universal sorrow felt at her untimely death. Her illness was of some duration, dating back to three months ago, but only the last few days of her life did her condition occasion alarm. The particulars of her death are furnished by the Salt Lake Herald from which we glean the following:

"The sudden death yesterday afternoon of Mrs. Victor E. Huntzsicker, of First St., will be a very great shock to her many friends. Although they have been residents of the city but a few months they have made hosts of friends who will sympathize deeply with the family in its bereavement.

Mrs. Huntzsicker had only been ill for about three months. About the end of January she suffered with la grippe. On Feb. 14th her little daughter was born, and following this the mother suffered from a severe attack of puerperal sepsis. From this she never recovered, although the immediate cause of her death was acute tuberculosis.

It had been hoped by her friends and those who attended her that she would rally, until within the past few days, when she seemed to lose strength very rapidly.

The deceased was born in Berlin, Wis., and was only 22 years of age. She leaves, besides her husband, her mother, Mrs. Margaret J. Millard, who is entirely prostrated over her daughter's sudden departure.

The little daughter died a few weeks ago, and since that time Mrs. Huntzsicker has failed very rapidly.

The remains of the mother and child will be taken to Neillsville, Wis., this morning (May 11). Mr. Huntzsicker will accompany the bodies, together with his mother, Mrs. Root, and Mrs. Millard. After performing his sad double duty, Mr. Huntzsicker will return to Utah to dispose of some business matter that await his attention.

Mr. and Mrs. Huntzsicker had only been married two years, and have been residents of Utah for less than six months."

The remains of the mother and child arrived in Neillsville last Saturday noon and were accompanied hither, as above stated, by Mr. Huntzsicker, Mrs. Millard, her mother, and Mrs. H. M. Root.

Funeral services conducted by the Rev. Joseph Moran of the Episcopal Church, Eau Claire, were held at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Root, Sunday afternoon and interment took place in the Neillsville Cemetery, a large concourse of friends following the remains to the grave.

Biographical Sketch of J. Edmund Millard

Source: Portrait and Biographical Album of Green Lake, Marquette and Waushara Counties, Wisconsin, published 1890 by Acme Publishing Co., Chicago, Pages 834 - 835

Judge J. Edmund Millard, County Judge of Green Lake County, has occupied that position for sixteen years. He ranks high in the esteem of the people of the community, both as an official and citizen, and is well worthy of representation in this volume, where is recorded the lives of the honored pioneers and prominent men of the community. He is a native of the Empire State, having been born in Jefferson County, April 30, 1819. His paternal grandfather Edmund Millard, was a Massachusetts farmer, and married Abigail Hoadley, by whom he had a family of five children. His maternal grandfather, Jacob Ambler, was of English birth, and throughout his business career engaged in merchandising. He chose for a life companion Miss Weed, a celebrated singer, and unto them were born nine children.

The Judge's grandparents removed to Saratoga County, N. Y., in an early day, where his father, Herman Millard, was born in 1797. He was reared to mercantile pursuits, and for many years engaged in that line of business. He was joined in wedlock with Miss Mary Ambler, also a native of Saratoga County, born in 1798, and their union was blessed with eight children, six sons and two daughters, of whom three sons and the daughters are yet living. In 1818, Mr. Millard was appointed by John C. Calhoun, then Secretary of War, as a cadet at West Point, but declined the honor. He continued to engage in merchandising until 1831, in which year he was elected Sheriff of Jefferson County, N. Y., whither he had removed some time previous and in that capacity served three years. The next official position which he held was that of Deputy Collector of Customs at Clayton, N. Y., serving as such for five years. In 1850, through the influence of his son, he came to Green Lake County, where he made his home until his death, Nov. 27, 1856. His wife lived to an advance age, dying Dec. 17, 1885. She was an active member of the Presbyterian Church and a faithful, consistent Christian woman. Politically Mr.. Millard was a Democrat of the Jeffersonian stripe.

Our subject was the oldest child of his father's family. He received no special advantages during his youth, having acquired his elementary education in the district schools, but after attaining his majority he attended the Ogdensburg Academy for two years and then entered the Western Reserve College of Hudson, Ohio, where he pursued an engineering course. Soon after leaving college he was chosen Assistant Clerk of the Lower House of Congress, a position which he retained five years, first under McNulty and subsequently under Maj. French. He there had the opportunity of hearing such distinguished statesmen as Webster, Calhoun, Benton and Choate.

Judge Millard was married Aug. 27, 1844, to Harriet S. Bingham, a native of Livingston County, N. Y., and a daughter of Dr. Charles Bingham. In 1847, the young couple came to Green Lake County on a visit, but soon returned to their home in Washington, D. C. However, the country with its brilliant prospects had made a favorable impression upon them and in 1849 they returned to make it their home, settling upon a farm in the town of Green Lake. Mr. Millard was inexperienced in agricultural pursuits, but possessing an observing eye and profiting by the experience of others, he soon acquainted himself with the methods of farming. He had not long been a resident of the county ere the people recognizing his superior ability, elected him to the position of Register of Deeds in 1852, he holding the office four years. Almost continuously since he has occupied some office and has proved a faithful public servant. He is an ardent advocate of the Democracy, but though the county is strongly Republican, he receives large majorities, which fact is indicative of his great popularity and ability. As before stated, he has held the office of County Judge since 1877, and his present term of service extends to 1893. On vacating the office of Register of Deeds, he went into a flouring mill in Kingston and did a fair business in that line for twenty years, during which time he held the office of President of the Village for several terms.

In 1873 Mr. Millard met the most painful experience of his life in the loss of his wife, who died on Christmas Day of that year. She was in full fellowship with the Protestant Episcopal Church and was a woman highly esteemed by all who knew her for her many excellent characteristics. Three children were born of their union, two boys who died in childhood, and Alice, now the wife of M. W. Stevens. The Judge was again married June 29, 1882, when Mrs. Margaret McCauley became his wife. In his church relations he is an Episcopalian, but his wife holds membership in the Methodist Church.

Judge Millard is the owner of 240 acres of land in the town of Green Lake, but while engaged in the duties of his office he leaves the management of his farm to his wife, who possesses excellent executive ability and ably controls affairs. This worthy couple are well and favorably known throughout the county and well deserve the esteem which is tendered them by all. The respect in which the Judge is held is evinced by the fact that for sixteen years he has held county offices in a strongly Republican county, but the people have never yet had occasion to regret the confidence reposed in him.
