Janesville Settlement (6 Feb 1919)

Mr. and Mrs. F. Hatton gave a dance Friday evening in honor of Sergt. David Moorehead and Private Oscar Klinke. These boys have returned from the training camps recently. The house was crowded with friends and neighbors from Tioga, Eaton Center, Globe, Owega and from here. At midnight a bounteous supper was served by the ladies. Mrs. Ed. Keefe made a large round cake about 6 inches high with white icing and in red was written “We Welcome Our Heroes Home.” A large gold star at the top was in memory of Private Arnold Halle, who died in the service of Uncle Sam. The cake was divided and presented to David and Oscar. Mrs. Al Flagg made a large cake about 16 in. square to represent the American flag. After supper the boys entertained us with some of the camp songs, which were great, and David gave a splendid little speech, thanking the people for their cheery letters and little tokens they sent him while in camp.

Wm. Rowert was a business caller at the county seat Thursday.

Leo Bredeson drilled a well for Clark Hatton last week.

We were all shocked and deeply saddened to hear of the sudden death of Ike Stafford at the home of his son, J.H. Stafford, in Greenwood. He was a fine old man and well liked. He leaves to mourn his loss his only son, J.H. Stafford, of Greenwood. Mr. Stafford was over 80 years old and has always lived in Janesville, Wis., until several years ago, when he came here to make his home with his son. The remains were taken to Janesville Tuesday. Mr. J.H. Stafford and family have our heartfelt sympathy in their sad trial.
