Vanderwegen, Ed (1897 - 27 JUL 1934)

Funeral services for Ed VanderWegen, who was robbed and slain at his filling station and tavern near Ogema last Friday night, were conducted Tuesday morning at 9 a.m., at Withee (Clark Co., Wis.). Father Novak of Abbotsford conducted the funeral services and burial was at Riverside Cemetery.

Those who survive Mr. VanderWegen include his mother, Mrs. Peter Vanderwegen of Withee; five brothers, Thomas of Thorp; Frank of Withee; Gus and Clarence of Eau Claire; and William of Withee; five sisters, Mrs. A. Deneice, Green Bay; Mrs. C. Johnston, New York; Mrs. B. Bidwell, Stevens Point; Mrs. A. Springer, Beloit; Mrs. James Devine, Owen, Wis. All were present a the funeral except Mrs. Johnston of New York.

Investigation of VanderWegen’s death is still being pushed, and latest dispatches implicated George Nelson and John Hamilton, members of the Dillinger gang. VanderWegen was killed by a severe blow to the head, with a stone and his body was also badly beaten and bruised. Robbery was believed to be the motive of his assailants.

I have a scrap book from 1800s of a lady from Conn. She was married to Arthur Fitch. The scrap book has stuff in it from Edwin Booth. She was also a manager of Galleck Club in London. Can anyone shed more light on this book? Any info would be helpful.

Thank You
