Obituary
 
The Hooper Sentinel 
March 1, 1923
 
A Resident Since 1861 Passes Away Suddenly 
 
When word was passed around Friday evening that August Wagner had
been stricken with heart failure and passed away soon afterward, a
sense of deep regret was heard on all sides. His demise was sudden,
as up to that time he had seemed to be enjoying his usual health
and had partaken of a hearty evening meal.  He had risen from the
table and had started for another room when he was stricken, with
death coming a few moments later.
 
The death of this respected and well known man again brings us to
the realization that the ranks of the real pioneers of this section
is rapidly thinning.  In his sixty years' residence in this
community, Mr. Wagner shared the vicissitudes, trials and hardships
of the early settler and had seen this country grow from a land of
unbroken wilds and prairies to one of plenty and prosperity. In
those early days he took a prominent part in the community's
affairs and was a man always ready, and never failing, to do any
task asked of him, and always unselfishly gave his aid to any
friend in time of need.  He had a large acquaintance and among
these he was always held in high esteem. Carl Ludwig August Wagner
was born in Middleschefland, November 7, 1845, and died at Hooper,
Nebr., February 23, 1923, at the age of 77  years, 3 months and 16
days. He came to America in 1852, locating in Ohio and later
removing to Wisconsin.  In 1863 he made the overland trip to
Nebraska and located on a farm near Logan Creek, northeast of the
present site of Hooper. He was united in marriage to Miss Elizabeth
Uehling on October 9, 1868, and thus a union of over fifty-four
years is broken through the death of the husband.  To this sacred
union fifteen children were born, of whom twelve survive.  They are
Henry, Edward, Gilbert, Mrs. Henry Mallette, Mrs. Ben Ott, Mrs.
Herman Janssen, Mrs. Alfred Stroh, and Mrs. Fred Dierking of
Hooper, Mrs. John M. Uehling of Elizabeth, Nebr., Wm. Wagner of
Neligh, Mrs. Isaac Mallette of Craig and Alfred Wagner of Ignacio,
Colo.  A sister, Mrs. Joseph Stecher of Fremont, also survives him.
The funeral services were held at the Zion's Lutheran Church at
1:30 Monday afternoon, the pastor, Rev. J. Schrader, preaching the
words of comfort to the sorrowing family and the large gathering of
friends who had come to thus pay their last respects to a friend
and neighbor. Interment was made in the Hooper cemetery(1).
 
The pall bearers were grandsons of the deceased, Harry Wagner,
Edward, Harold, Lester and Sherman Mallette and Fred Ott, Jr.  Out
of town relatives here for funeral were: Mr. and Mrs. Wm. Wagner of
Neligh, Mr. and Mrs. Isaac Mallette and family of Craig, Mr. and
Mrs. Jos. Stecher of Fremont and Mr. and Mrs. Walter Binger of
Neligh, and Mrs. John Uehling of Elizabeth.
 
(1) Interment is at Logan Cemetery, Hooper, Nebraska.

Another Pioneer Woman Answers Final Summons 
 
Again we have been reminded of the frailty of our lives and of the
end of our days, in that one more of our numbers has been summoned
from this earth.  This time the call came to Mrs. August Wagner,
who passed away at 2:50 p.m. last Thursday, October l6, 1924, at
the home of her daughter, Mrs. Alfred Stroh.  The cause of her
death was due to a paralytic stroke she suffered the morning of the
day before. Previous to the stroke, Mrs. Wagner had been in her
usual health and the news of her illness and the shortly following
death brought to her immediate family, relatives and friends a
profound sorrow.
 
Elizabeth Uehling was born in Saxony, Germany, January 10, 1850,
and thus had attained the age of 74 years, 9 months and 10 days.
When a young girl she left the home land and emigrated with her
parents to the United States, the family locating in Dodge County,
Wisconsin. In 1864 they came to Nebraska, settling on a homestead
northeast of the present site of Hooper, and this community had
been her home ever since. On October 9, 1868, she was united in
marriage to August Wagner, and continued to reside on the farm
until twenty-five years ago when she and Mr. Wagner moved to town. 
Mr. Wagner died February 23, 1923, and since then she had made her
home with her daughter, Mrs. Stroh.
 
As a pioneer settler of this vicinity, Mrs. Wagner had gained a
wide acquaintanceship and her friends were legion.  She was a woman
intensely devoted to her home ties, beloved by friends as well as
by her family, never failing to giving her assistance to those
desiring her services and was always held in the highest esteem by
all in the community that had so long been her home.

away suddenly at his home at about 10 o'clock Thursday morning.  He
had been in poor health for many years and during the past couple
of years had suffered several strokes, from which however he had

and to engage in light tasks about the home and yard.

miles northeast of Hooper, the son of a well-known pioneer couple,

Church northeast of Hooper, Mr. Wagner was he oldest child of a
large family and as such he was well acquainted with the pioneer

1917 to 1920, when the family lived at Castleford, Idaho.
 
During his life the husband and father worked at various trades,
ten years having been spent as foreman of a county bridge
construction crew. He was always respected and well liked by his
associates and friends and was a particularly kindly father to his
own three children and dearly beloved by his grandchildren.

Harry M. Wagner of Hooper Badly Burned in Blast
 
Explosion Is Cause of Injury to Fire Chief
 
Hooper, Nov. 10 - Harry M. Wagner, chief of the Hooper volunteer
fire department, was seriously burned Sunday morning by a
mysterious explosion in a burning home.
 
The explosion occurred in the Frank H. Nelson home shortly after
11:30 o'clock Sunday morning, when Wagner and other volunteer
firemen were fighting flames that threatened to destroy the
residence.
 
The fire chief was standing on the roof of the kitchen which
adjoins the main building. A window near him was shattered, and
fragments were thrown a distance of 50 feet. The roof of the house
was raised a foot in the air, and when it dropped back the whole
building appeared to bulge out.
 
Wagner sustained burns on the left side of his body and head, his
left eye was closed, and his left hand and arm were painfully
scorched.
 
The cause of the explosion is not known. The fire is believed to
have started in a small clothes closet. The house was heated by a
coal stove, and there was fire in the stove, but there were no
indications that this figured in either the origin of the fire or
the subsequent explosion.
 
Mrs. Nelson and a daughter were at church at the time. The fire was
discovered by Mr. Nelson while he was standing on the street a
short distance away talking to a friend. By the time firemen
arrived the blaze was gaining great headway.
