Louise Ruth Froemling: Child.

 

Froemling, Louise Ruth - Birth Record
Froemling, Louise Ruth – Birth Record

According to my husband Mark, his grandmother, Louise Ruth Froemling was born on 10 Oct 1911 at 1712 Paulina Street in Chicago, Cook County, Illinois to Emma Mary Froemling and William Read Kirk.

Since Emma was unmarried, and William, a soldier, returned to his military post with no intention of marrying her, Emma made the difficult decision to give Louise up for adoption.

Louise was adopted as an infant of about five months of age by William Dennis and Claudia Matthews.

The circumstances surrounding the adoption are unclear.

At the time of the adoption, William and Claudia lived in Morning Sun, Iowa and it is believed they were acquainted with Emma Froemling and/or her family and the adoption was arranged privately.

She lived with her adopted parents in Morning Sun until at least grade 11.

 

Louise Ruth Matthews: Student and Nurse.

 

29ish-15.-Louise-183x3001.jpgAfter her graduation from high school, Louise took her training in nursing – more specifically in infant care, working to be one of ‘Wisconsin’s Little Mothers’ in Wisconsin around 1930.

She shows up in Chicago, Illinois about 1930 and again in 1935, working as a nurse.

Her Social Security Card indicates her address was 3901 North Sheridan Road, Chicago, Illinois at one point.

At the age of 25, Louise met and married Chester C. Blythe, son of Clayton William Blythe and Harriet Maude Jones. The marriage took place on 25 Nov 1936 in Chicago, Cook County, Illinois.

According to the US Census, Louise lived in Chicago, Cook County, Illinois on 01 Apr 1940 and she was employed as a nurse at the time.

Chester C. Blythe and Louise Ruth Froemling had the following children:

Not long after, Chester left the family and they divorced. No one is sure what happened, but the general consensus is that Chester had just abandoned them.

 

Louise Ruth Reynolds: Farmer’s wife and mother.

Rear: Jim and Louise Reynolds. Front: Louise’s sons, Marsh and Paul Blythe (respectively) from her first marriage.

Once Louise was divorced and living as a struggling, young single mother working as a nurse in Chicago, she met Harmond James (Jim) Reynolds. They were married prior to 1933, but the exact date is unknown. After the death of Jim’s mother, they moved to Seymour Township, Peterborough County, Ontario, Canada, where they took over and worked the land he inherited on Mud Lake.

Jim and Louise had the following children:

She died on 16 Apr 1989 in Havelock, Seymour Township at the home of her son William (Bill) and his family.

In 1972, Louise had taken up the challenge of finding information about her birth and her biological parents. The following are two of the many letters she wrote to the City of Chicago during her life.

Following is my transcription of the Civil War Roster of the 8th Independent Battery, Wisconsin Light Artillery showing ancestors Charles George Blythe and his brother John Mumby Blythe.

————————————-

My husband’s 2nd great grandfather, Charles George Blythe and his brother, John Mumby Blythe, emigrated from Lincolnshire, England with their brother Robert Joseph and their father Thomas in 1857.

A mere four years later their loyalty to their new country was tested and they enlisted together on November 21, 1861, and remained in active duty with the 8th Independent Battery, Wisconsin Light Artillery, Co. A, until their discharge together on August 10, 1865.

I spent a great deal of time transcribing the typewritten copies of handwritten letters of David Coon to his wife and children from Confederate prison, marking the days until his subsequent death from disease. The original transcriptions were completed by his son, Dr. William B. Coon in 1913, one for each family member. My father-in-law now holds one of the transcribed sets of letters.

 

David Coon and Mary Ann Adams
David and Mary Ann (Adams) Coon

David Coon, born February 10, 1824 in Beekmantown, Clinton County, New York, was the son of William B. Coon and Clarissa Haskel Williams. David Coon was the 4th great grandfather of my children on their father’s side by adoption.

My husband’s father-in-law, Marshall Matthews Blythe was the son of Louise Matthews, who was adopted by Dennis William Matthews, son of Elam Dennis Matthews and grandson of David Coon.

On June 15, 1843, David married his first wife, Mary Ann Adams, daughter of Alanson Adams and Submit Hall, in Burlington, Chittenden County, Vermont. In subsequent years, they had seven children: Alonzo Beckwith Coon, Edgar Coon, Herbert William Coon, Emma E. Coon, Hiram Southwick Coon, Elam Dennis Coon and Orilla (Mary) Coon. Mary Ann died June 3, 1859.

Between 1843 and June of 1844, he was living in Licking County, Ohio and in 1844, started a wagon making business with his brother-in-law Elam Dennis Adams. He is shown in records of November 27, 1854 in Waushara County, Wisconsin, living on 40 acres of military bounty land at the SE Quarter of NW Quarter of Section 12, Township 19. He is recorded in the 1860 census for Bloomfield, Waushara County, Wisconsin, farming his land.

David married his second wife, Isabel Ann Hall, daughter of Benjamin Hall and Eliza McReynolds on November 24, 1859 in Leon, Waushara County, Wisconsin. They added to the family with three more children: John Williams Coon, Matthew Edgar Coon and Jedidah Wood Coon. Isabel Ann was the cousin of David’s first wife Mary Ann as Benjamin and Submit were brother and sister, both children of John Hall and his wife Submit.

Assuming that the responsibilities of caring for such a large family as a widower were too much for David after the death of Mary Ann, the younger children went to other families. Elam Dennis went to the Matthew’s family, who later adopted him. He took the last name Matthews. Orilla went to live with a family named Ellis, who later adopted her, and Hiram lived with a different Matthews family (although related to the family who took Elam) but later returned to live with his father and his father’s new wife, Isabel.

Leaving his farm close to Bloomingfield in Waushara County and proceeding to Berlin to enlist in the army, he was told he had to leave right away to proceed to Madison. His departure for camp Randall was so quick, he did not have time to go back and tell his family he was leaving. They only found out in a letter dated February 28, 1864 that he “…enlisted in the 36th Regiment.” David enlisted in the Union army from Green Lake County on February 26, 1864 and served as a Private in Co. A, 36th Wisconsin Infantry, and is recorded on his military documents dated August 15, 1861 as being 5 feet, 8 3/8 inches in height with blue eyes and sandy hair. The following is an excerpt from the foreward of the original typed transcription of David Coon Letters, prepared in 1913 in Wales, Wisconsin by his son, John W. Coon, MD.

“David Coon was a great man, a kind husband and father, a true soldier of the American type, not only a patriot but a philosopher.” During his service in the Civil War, David wrote frequently and consistently, approximately one letter per week, to his wife and children, his devotion to all being very evident. Even if he did not have any stationary to write on he made sure they knew he was okay. He once wrote a letter on the label of a condensed milk can. As described by his son John W. Coon, MD in the typed transcription he prepared of his father’s letter home, “Many of the letters were written on such scraps of paper as were available, the ink being often very poor — in one instance at least, made from the juice of pokeberries gathered on the battlefield.”

David was stationed with his regiment at Camp Randall until May 10, 1864, where he nursed the sick at the hospital before being sent to battle. He was then ordered to join Hancock’s Corps in Virginia where he participated in many of the noted great battles of that campaign.On May 8, 1864, he sent a letter to his family telling them that he was to be sent away to Washington to join General Grant’s Army.The regiment moved from battle to battle. They hardly ever had time to rest. During a battle, Coon was captured by a Confederate officer and was handcuffed for two hours. The officer let him go with a note of warning. Coon wrote to his family, “He offered to let me go back to the regiment but wanted me to promise to be a better boy.”Not until August did the regiment start to travel again. They went to Richmond where they fought against the rebels. When they finished they returned to their camp near Petersburg. On August 25, 1864, he, along with 11 officers and 175 other men from the regiment, posted themselves at Reams Station on the Weldon Railroad. Before long, he, along with 133 other men from his regiment were reported missing. On August 27, Coon wrote a letter to his family telling them that he and 127 other men had been captured and taken prisoner. He talked about how the officers and guards had treated them fairly until then and he wrote that he was expecting to be sent to Libby Prison in Richmond and for his family to keep up courage. That was his last letter. He was first held in Libby Prison in Richmond, Virginia, then at Belle Isle, later being transferred again to Salisbury Prison in North Carolina.

Salisbury Prison was one of the best Confederate prisons. However, soon after David and the other men arrived, the conditions grew worse. The prison became over crowded with 10,000 people in a space that had reached capacity one year before Coon arrived. Living in these terribly overcrowded conditions, one third of the prisoners, or 35,000 men, died. David Coon was one of these. The diary of James Canon, a Sergeant in the same company, states in a simple entry dated November 2, 1864, “David Coon died today.” He was buried the same day in Forest Cemetery at Stephens Point, Portage County, Wisconsin.

Harmond James (Jim) Reynolds (see left) was the step-father of my father-in-law, Marsh Blythe and his brother Paul, as well as father to Marsh and Paul’s half-brother William and half-sister Helen. (The original data and images on this individual and family are available on Blythe Genealogy.)

It was as a result of his relationship with Louise Matthews that most of the Reynolds and Matthews family transitions from American to Canadian occurred.

Portrait of Harmond James ReynoldsBorn on October 19, 1902 in Clarkson, Monroe County, New York, he was the first child of William Henry Reynolds and Helen (Hannah) Elizabeth Keller, whose family was originally from Seymour Township, Ontario, Canada.

Reynolds Family circa 1944
Rear: Jim and Louise Reynolds. Front: Louise’s sons, Marsh and Paul Blythe (respectively) from her first marriage.

In about 1950, Jim married Louise (Froemling-Matthews) Blythe, a young divorcee with two young boys, whom he met while living in Chicago.

According to his military records, Jim was 5’9″, 138 lbs., had gray eyes, brown hair, ruddy complexion, “P M (sic) left shoulder”, with the tips of three fingers on his left hand missing and two on his right hand badly smashed.

Jim spent his earliest years with the Keller family of Havelock and then resided with his father in Rochester, New York.

He enlisted in the US Navy on or about November 12, 1920 at Rochester, New York as A.S. (sic) for 2 years and served on the USS Southery and USS Savannah, based out of Norfolk, Virginia and Portsmouth, New Hampshire, Pennacook Tug Yard. Jim was discharged November 12, 1922 from the Portsmouth Navy Yard as a Seaman 2nd Class. He was a Bosun’s Mate on the USS Savannah (see left below) AS 8 Submarine Tender, commissioned November 3, 1917 at the Puget Sound Navy Yard, with Lt. Commander Arthur Jensen in command.

In 1943, his residence was recorded as 1116 Webster Ave., Chicago, Illinois.

Subsequent to his mother’s death in 1944, Jim had to apply for permission to leave the US as his discharge certificate from the military was ‘lost or destroyed’, along with all of his possessions, in or about June, 1940 in a rooming house fire at 2 West Ohio Street, Chicago, Illinois. He inherited the family property at Mud Lake (see left bottom), Havelock, Ontario from his mother.

Jim, Louise and their family continued to live on the Mud Lake property while Jim worked to support his family in the carpentry trade and was employed in Peterborough and Bancroft, Ontario. He also operated a bread route for Scott’s Bakery in Havelock.

Jim died on December 3, 1965 in Mud Lake, Seymour Township, Northumberland County, Ontario, after suffering with an illness of four years duration. He was buried on December 6, 1965 in Maple Grove Cemetery, Havelock, Seymour Township, Northumberland County, Ontario, Canada.

Although a large portion of the Mud Lake property was flooded during the creation of the Trent-Severn waterway, the Reynolds/Blythe family continued to own the property to this very day. It is much smaller today, though, as Louise had gradually sold off parcels to provide an income for her family. The small portion remaining still has the house pictured at left, although it is not in habitable condition, and a small ‘rustic’ cabin on a small piece of the property that belongs to Mark’s father, Marsh to this day.

While living in Trenton, Ontario for over ten years from 1995 to 2006, we frequently visited family in Havelock and spent a great deal of time camping at the Mud Lake property, as described in a recent post on my personal blog, ‘Feathering the Empty Nest‘.
