William Bramwell Sizer Diaries
Milwaukee County Police Department
These diaries are a mixture of work and family affairs of William Bramwell Sizer. William was on the Milwaukee Police Department and a member of the Sherman Street Methodist Episcopal Church, later transferring their membership to Kingsley Methodist Episcopal Church and died in 1916. The diaries give a pretty good view of life in the years involved. The diaries were given to me for presentation on this site by family members see contributors page.
Charles Tillapaugh was murdered last Wed. night & buried yesterday. Rev. Findlay preached the sermon. Our folks went. I could not go. Went down to Saukville this morn. Wind blew a hurricane all day. Couldn't work out at all.
