Anecdote* Milo Ray worked on a neighbor's farm when he was just a boy and also rode around with Dr. Rath in a horse drawn buggy, as the good doctor made his rounds to see people of the area. He recalled that the old doctor would often prescribe a bit of black berry brandy for his patients to cure what ailed them. Milo attended college in Steven's Point but gave up that education in favor of supporting his family. Milo served his apprenticeship in Granton and opened his own shop in Neillsville in l936. He continued barbering until the time of his illness and death in l985.
In 1943 he enlisted in the U.S. Navy and served his country as a pharmacist mate 3rd class in the Pacific Theatre until l945. He loved to tell the story of sending new seamen to the lab to get a set of fallopian tubes.
Milo was a very patriotic man and taught his children love of country and respect for the Stars and Stripes. Hewas a man of unquestionable integrity, well respected in the community and was known for his honesty and wisdom. His children were taught that honesty was a top priority and that cleanliness was indeed next to godliness. He would often say to Cheryl and Jeannie "You may not be the prettiest girls in town, but you can be the cleanest!"
Milo loved the Lord with all his heart, attending church with his family every Sunday except in case of illness or traveling. Often, he would serve area churches during the absence of their own pastors as a lay minister, preaching the sermon and leading the Sunday service. Evenings and very early mornings would find him in his favorite chair studying his Bible and other reference books.
Singing was one of Milo's passions, and he wouldn't miss a practice session of his church choir where he sang out with gusto in his warm, bass. When the choir would become distracted by some issue or the other, Milo would say to them "Come on kids, let's sing!" Other passions of his were: hunting "birds" with one of his favorite dogs, fishing in the Black River, and gardening. The Mabie family enjoyed many a fine meal of fresh game or fish and vegetables fresh from the garden.
Milo was ever faithful to his own strict code of ethics. He was a good father and faithful husband, never wavering in his devotion to his God, his family and his country. Milo loved his "Lonie" and was so proud of her. The two of them truly had a marriage made in heaven.5

Death*12 December 1997 Irene Thelma Mabie died on 12 December 1997 at Longview, Washington, at age 81.7 
Anecdote* Irene Thelma was born March 10, 1916 in Granton, WI. She went to Hylandale Academy where she was the only girl in her graduating class. She went to Greenville, TN to nurses training. I do not know where and when she met Clif but she was sweet on him during nurses training. Dating and marriage during nursing school was not allowed back then. After she developed a severe kidney infection and missed too many classes she dropped out of the nursing program and married him. She was married to Clifton Eric Clark Jr. June 1, 1943, in Knoxville, Tennessee, by Pastor O. D. Cardey. Two children were born to Irene and Clif. Terry James was born November 11, 1946, at Madison College, Tennessee, and Dixie Lee was born September 27, 1954 at Reedsburg, Wisconsin. The folks built a house in Reedsburg but then felt that they should move out west. They prayed about this and vowed that if the house would sell that they would send their kids to Adventist schools. The house sold quickly and the woman that bought it said later that she did not know why she bought the place. But my folks knew why. And they were true to their vow. Terry and I were sent in SDA schools. It was difficult since there was only one income. We did not have any extras growing up. Mom shopped at 2nd hand stores as much as she could. We didn't go to Jr camp, I didn't even think to ask. Money was tight. Irene was primarily a wife and mother with no professional training. Irene and Clif lived in quite a few places. The longest they lived in one place was in the 1960's when they were in Redding, CA area. During our time there the folks took in 2 foster daughters, Mary Ann and Donna Rae Peterson. It was also here that Irene took in some laundry/ ironing to bring in some extra cash. Irene remembered those days as the best time of her life. They also lived in Montrose, CO for a few years during the '70's. Irene was a nanny to 2 girls while they were living there and they became like part of her family. Clif retired there and they moved to be near Terry and his family near Longview, WA. After Clif's death Irene continued to live in the Longview area and had many friends there. Irene died December 12, 1997 from complications of pulmonary fibrosis.
Clifton Eric Clark Jr. was born August 19, 1915 in Hutchinson, Kansas. When he was 13 his mother (Violet Barnhurst Clark) died of Bright's Disease (a kidney disease). Clif's father (Clifton Eric Clark Sr) left him, his younger brother Elwood and his sister Fonda at an orphanage run by his grandparents (John William Barnhurst and Margaret Muir Barnhurst) near Tulsa, Oklahoma. Clif served as a medic in the army during WW2. He trained as a medical technologist and that was his profession the rest of his life. He loved electronics and "high fi" equipment. He had a large stereo system with a reel to reel tape deck etc. I remember mom fussing about all the cords that led to said equipment. He played a lot of classical music. Dad was an eccentric man that few understood. Mom was asked one time that I know of "How do you get along with him Irene?" He lacked tact and that got him into trouble on more than one occasion. He was an avid gardener with a green thumb. We subscribed to Organic Gardening magazines and he grew prize winning veggies. I remember that I could always count on dad to fix anything. I remember an incident when I was living in Arkansas. Mom and dad came to visit. The black walnuts were ready to harvest. He devised a way to get the hulls off that most people would not have thought of. He made a trough as wide as a car tire and with the tire spinning in the trough he would pour the black walnuts in and they came out the other side perfectly hulled. Then he would sit for hours with pliers and picks getting those nuts out better than I have ever seen anyone do. He was amazing. He died August 27, 1985 of Lou Gehrigs disease.2

Adeline Mabie

F, #31213, b. 7 September 1921, d. 30 September 2015
Father*Albert Leon Mabie1 b. 24 Sep 1877, d. 27 Mar 1956
Mother*Altha Davis1 b. 8 Dec 1881, d. 5 Oct 1961
Anecdote* Adeline was the youngest girl in this family of eight - and the next to youngest child. She was born September 7, 1921, and lived her young life in Granton. She went to Hylandale Academy during her high school years. That's where she met Howard Berger. They were married Sunday, September 1, 1940, at her parent's home. She and Howard made their home in Detroit where he was employed as a carpenter. They came to the U.P. in 1942 to raise their family. Four girls were born: Charlotte, Aileen, Maxine, and Margie.

Adeline was better known as Sis. She was a stay-at-home housewife but did anything and everything to keep her family nurtured, focused, and well educated. She was an outstanding cook. I remember eating chili and cinnamon rolls nearly every Friday night. And oh what wonderful bread. She was also a blue-ribbon pie maker, often making lemon meringue pie from scratch. Those were Dad's favorite. One day she had made two pies and put them in the basement to cool under a tent of neswpaper. He came into the dark basement from the bright sunlight and stepped in the pies. Mom didn't make lemon meringue pies for long time after that.

She always grew a huge garden and canned tons of good food. One summer she and the girls picked and canned one-hundred quarts of wild raspberries. They were the best treats that winter!

She made many of our clothes and mended hundreds of our socks. Mom is a beautiful quilter and has given one of her quilt to each of her girls. She also knows how to paint and fine finish any kind of wood, whether it be furniture, walls, or siding.

Adeline wrote: I graduated from Hylandale, May 1939. Irene and I went to LaGrange, Illinois, some time that summer. We both worked as domestics (maids). My salary started at $6 per week while Irene received $8 at her place. Later I got a raise to $8 per week that year. I worked for a United Airplane pilot. He and his wife had one little boy named Butchie who was less then a year old. He couldn't walk yet, but I don't remember how old he was. I had to cook and clean. She sent the laundry out. It came back wet and I had to put it to dry, and I ironed. I remember helping Butchie learn to walk by propping him against a big hassack and then getting him to come to me. Irene had two little kids to care for. The lady of my house didn't work. I don't know why she needed a maid. My family bought a home in Western Springs in the spring of 1940. I don't remember how long before we were married that I quit there. Carolyn and Biff lived at Broadview. We could catch a bus on Sabbath and go to their house.
We were married September first. Howard was working in Detroit as a contractor. We had a nice big room upstairs and use of a kitchen in that basement. Bud and Howard had been living in that basement apartment. We moved back here in the spring of '42.2

Howard W. Berger

M, #31215, b. 18 August 1919
Anecdote* Howard was born August 18, 1919, to Arthur and Annie Berger. He was fourth in a line of six children: Florian, Mabel, Raymond, Howard, Clarence, and Ralph. The family lived on a farm in Menominee County where his Great-grandfather, Ferdinand Berger, had settled after he immigrated from Belgium in the 1800's. Arthur and Annie's farm was located on the Big Cedar River right across the road from the original homestead site of Annie Rhode's parents. Char thinks the land was a wedding gift to Annie.
Howard attended Jasper one-room school house during his elementary schooling and Hylandale Academy during high school. That's were he met Adeline.
Howard was a business man, running three different businesses in his life. The first was in the building trades contractor, next was a back-hoe business, and last was "The Basswood Man" where he made carving blocks for wood carvers.
He has loved having fun. As kids, we grew up playing games like Prince of Paris, Under the Blanket, and Wink Um. There were also two generations of mongooses that startled many poor soles out of their lethargy. He built and walked on many stilts, some of them 10 feet off the ground. Many summer Sabbath afternoons, he would take us on walks out to Truman's, around to List's, and back home. Wow!
He was famous for his home-made ice-cream. When it would start to get hard to crank we kids would stand on top of the churn to hold it steady. Yummy stuff!
When Uncle Clarence's got his nose cut off, he was running under the log that Ray and Howard were working on. Ray was sawing and Howard was holding the log. Clarence kept running under the log every time the saw was drawn back. One time they didn't stop for his antics and his nose got cut nearly off and was hanging by some skin. Grandpa just taped it back on. Not many trips to the doctor back then.1

Charles Austin Hanvey1

M, #31228, b. 4 April 1889, d. August 1970
Birth*4 April 1889 Charles Austin Hanvey was born on 4 April 1889 at Attica, New York.1 
Marriage*10 August 1920 He married Mabel May Maybee, daughter of Frank S. Maybee and Katherine Ready, on 10 August 1920 at Jamestown, Chautauqua County, New York.1 
Anecdote* Marked advance in the practice of the profession of his choice, whereby he has been instrumental in remedying the visual defects of great numbers of people, has rendered significant the career of Dr. Charles Austin Hanvey, of Jamestown, a well-known specialist in his field, and president of the Southwestern New York Optometrists' Society, and otherwise prominently identified with associational interests of his profession. He is also a lecturer of considerable note on the subject of optometry.
Dr. Charles Austin Hanvey was born in Attica, New York, April 4, 1889. His father, Henry P. Hanvey, is a veteran locomotive engineer, still in the service of the Erie Railroad at the age of seventy-five years. He married Belle Lincoln, a member of one of the old families of New York. Patrick Henry Hanvey, grandfather of Dr. Hanvey, came from the North of Ireland early in the nineteenth century and settled in Erie County, New York. he engaged in the lumber industry, and met his death in the forest by a tree falling upon him, when in middle life. He married a Miss Wright, of one of the early families of Northwestern New York, on whose side there is a Revolutionary ancestry.
Dr. Hanvey completed his academic education in the Lockport High School in 1902. He then studied at the Young men's Christian Association Training School in Chicago, Illinois, following this with a course at the Rochester School of Optometry, since he had elected that profession for his life-work. After his graduation, in 1905, he spent a few months in New York City and Buffalo, and in 1906 established himself in practice at Jamestown, where he specializes in musculae in-blanc. On October 14, 1912, having determined to perfect himself still further, he began a post-graduate course at the Philadelphia College of Optometry, which conferred upon him the degree of Doctor of Optometry.
Needless to state, Dr. Hanvey has risen high in the esteem and councils of his contemporaries. He also enjoys the confidence of a large and desirable group of patients, which in reality is the most acceptable appreciation of his services. As president of the
Southwestern New York Optometrists' Society he has given evidence of his qualifications for leadership. He is affiliated with the New York State Society of Optometrists, the American Optometrists' Association, and the New York and Pennsylvania academy of Optometry. His activity in behalf of professional advance has brought him a reputation that has preceded him far beyond the confines of this State. He is especially well known as a lecturer on the subject of optometry, his platform work in this respect being featured by moving pictures and lantern slides, furnishing apt and compelling illustrations of his addresses.
His fraternal relations embrace Mr. Moriah Lodge, No. 145, Free and accepted Mason; the Royal Arch Masons, the Royal and Select Masters, and Jamestown Consistory of the Scottish Rite; also Mt. Tabor Lodge, Independent Order of Odd Fellows.1
