Former Resident carried bullets in head 30 years

Carrying two bullets in his head one above the right eye and one at the base of his skull, for more than 30 years, Nelson L. Mackold, former Waukesha County farm hand, well known by old-time residents, died at his home in Bird City, Kas., after a brief illness, and funeral services were held at Eagle, this week, with interment in Oak Ridge cemetery in that village.

Mackold figured in a sensational murder which took place at the John Harris farm, town of New Berlin, many years ago.  At the time Mackold was employed as a farm hand on the Harris farm.  John Pontsch, formerly residing near Manitowoc, had been employed on the farm previously and was in love with Elizabeth Vesbac, who was employed as a domestic there and whose home was in Milwaukee.

According to the evidence Pontsch was jilted by Miss Vesbac, and maddened by the girl's decision not to accept his love, he became violently insane, appeared at the Harris farm and opened fire on the entire household.  Haris, the owner of the farm, was killed, Mrs. Harris was wounded, Miss Vesbac was shot, but recovered as did also Mackold who carried the bullets in his head until his death thirty years later.

The murder caused a sensation in the county as well as throughout the state and Pontsch was sought for more than two weeks, by authorities.  His body was finally discovered in Hale's pond nearby, he having walked out on a spring board, fired a bullet into his brain and fell into the water.

Lucien t. Mallory, a Civil war veteran and a man widely known throughout Waueksha county, died last Friday at his home in Genesee village.  He was 78 years of age and had been ill for some weeks with pneumnia.

Mr. Mallory had lived in Waukesha county since the ?(illegible) and in the past twenty years was much in evidence at and highly interested in G.A.R. activities.  For many years he participated in the meetings and campaigns of the veterans association in Waukesha, and with tlie local veterans on Memorial Day and other occassions when former soldiers turned out.

To the very last Mr. Mallory preserved his anti-southern opinions and for  many years he voiced opposition to any movement which was inclined to be friendly to the former confederates.  He was particularly opposed to the erection of the soldiers' monument in Cutler park, as he believed that it would offer southern visitors to Waukesha an opportunity to scoff at the heroes for which it was erected.

Mr. Mallory enlisted in the Union army in New York state and served for more than two years. After the war he made his home at Genesee where he served as postmaster and for many years was a baggageman on the St. Paul road.

The widow and one son, Fred Mallory of San Francisco, survive. Members of the Waukesha G.A.R. post attended the funeral Wednesday.

Mrs. John K McGregor

The death of Mrs. John K. McGregor, 203 Bethesda Ave, occurred last Saturday, under most sad and distressing circumstances. Her death was caused by a dose of carbolic acid, without doubt taken accidentally. She spent Friday night alone in her house, arose in the morning, and is supposed attempted to take a dose of peppermint. She mistook the bottles and swallowed the poison. She lived until five o'clock in the afternoon.

Mrs. McGregor and her daughter, Nellie, have recently been attending the Chataqua Assembly at Madison. On Friday afternoon Mrs. McGregor, determined to return home, thinking that possibly Mr. McGregor, who was at Mondovi, Wis., might come home when if she were absent, he would find the house closed. Miss McGregor had an engagement for Friday evening and so decided to stay until Saturday morning and the mother returned alone. She sat upon her porch that evening, and as her neighbor, George Richards, passed to his duties as night watchman at the Industrial School, she said to him that her husband had not come home, that she was alone in the house, and that she would like the watchman to look over at her house occasionally during the night.

At 8:30 the next morning Mr. Richards returned home, and heard cries and moaning at Mrs. McGregor's. Fearing trouble, he tried the doors of the house, and finding them locked got a ladder and went in at an upper window. He found Mrs. McGregor in her nightgown, walking about in great agony. Neighbors came in and physicians were summoned at once, but in spite of all their efforts Mrs. McGregor died in a few hours. She was unconscious most of the time but regained consciousness two hours before her death.

The theory of Dr. Hugo Philler, who was the first physician called, is that the unfortunate lady swallowed the poison without detecting it, because her senses of taste, smell, and sight were somewhat dimmed, as evidenced by the facts that she wore strong glasses and suffered from hay fever. The three bottles in the cupboard from among which Mrs. McGregor accidentally took the acid, were filled to about the same height. Dr. Philler's statement to the coroner was deemed sufficient and no inquest was held.

Miss Nellie McGregor arrived home at 10 o'clock Saturday and Prof. McGregor and his only son, George, came in the evening. It was a sad homecoming and the deepest sympathy is felt for the stricken family.

The McGregor family came here several years ago, Prof. McGregor being employed as principal of the Industrial School. He left that institution the first of last July. The family made many friends and Mrs. McGregor was much beloved. She was a member of the Baptist church and a most efficient worker. Funeral services were conducted at the residence, Monday afternoon by her pastor, Rev. W. A. McKillop. The remains were taken to Mondovi for interment, that place being the future home of the family.

Mrs. McGregor leaves surviving her husband and the son and daughter mentioned, the son, George, having just completed a medical course at John Hopkins University. He is spending a vacation with his family. Mrs. McGregor was about 55 years of age.

Waukesha Freeman, Thursday, January 17, 1907 | Page 2

News of-the death of William Meredith, which occurred at his farm home west of the village on Monday, Jan. 7th, caused great surprise and sorrow to his friends in Eagle.  Although he had not been in good health for some time, his death was not expected. He was born in Llanlodflois, South Wales, May 10, 1860, and came to America about twenty-four years ago, locating in Milwaukee where he was employed in the N.W. straw works.  Six years go he went to Vancouver Island, B.C. and after one year returned and engaged in farming in Cambria, Wis.  In March, 1895, he came to Eagle to occupy the Jas. Black farm which he purchased.

He was married in July 1892 to Miss Annie L. Roberts of Cambria by whom he had four children-Irving, Gladys, Dylis, and Beryl all of whom are living.  During his brief residence here he won the reputation of an honest, energetic and industrious citizen, kind father and neighbor.  HIs untimely death will be mourned by all.  In religion he was a member of the Welsh M.E. church; was school district clerk at the time of his death.  The funeral took place from the family home Thursday afternoon, Rev. Tettle of the M.E. church officiating.  The Welsh choir of Milwaukee, composed of David Williams, Miss Mamie Williams, Mr. and Mrs. Edward Jones, and Miss Bessie Jones sang two Welsh selections.  The decorations of the casket consisted of costly wreaths and flowers from his friends in Eagle and Milwaukee and a pillow of flowers from the Sunshine club.  There was a large attendance at the funeral.  Besides his family, he leaves his parents, Richard and Elizabeth Meredith, and one brother, in Wales.  Those from abroad who attended the funeral were Mr. and Mrs. Thos. R. Roberts, Cambria; Mr. and Mrs. J. L. Roberts, R.W. Roberts, Mr. Atherton, Mrs. John Hughes, Mrs. Owen Williams, Mrs. GAtes, Mr. and Mrs. Jacobson of Milwaukee; Mrs. Atherton, of Chicago; Mr. Price of Genesee.  We all extend our sympathy to the bereaved family.

In Lisbon, January 12th 1865, of Congestion of the heart, MEHITABLE MUDGET, wife of David Mudget, aged 72 years and 3 months. The deceased had professed the religion of Jesus Christ for over 56 years. She at all times endeavored to lead a christian life, and to walk with God. She was for thirty years a member of the M.E.Churech; but for the last twenty was not identified with any church, yet she maintained her integrity to the end, and died in peace. She leaves a husband and five children to mourn her loss; but "their loss is her eternal gain." Thus the christian passes away with the prospect of heaven before them. They are heirs to a crown of glory that fadeth not away- to an inheritance that is incorruptible and undefined- reserved in heaven for all that love our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ unto the end. Death has taken her from us to a brighter and better land, where we hope to meet her when the trials of life are over.
