Butterbrodt, Allison A. (1922? - 22 JUN 1964)

Allison A. Butterbrodt, 42, McHenry, Ill., brother of William Butterbrodt, route 2, Loyal, drowned Monday morning in Anderson Lake in the Perkinstown area, about 20 miles north of Thorp.

Authorities said the man and his wife had caught a large fish and while the wife was pulling in the boat anchor, the craft tipped, throwing both of them into the water.

Mrs. Butterbrodt made it to shore, but told authorities she could not see her husband. Overcome by panic, authorities said, she started across country instead of walking along the lake shore in search of help.

The drowning occurred about 10:30 a.m., but notice did not reach the sheriff's department here until mid-afternoon. Men in three boats dragged the area and recovered the body about 5 p.m. in 20 feet of water.
