I lived in the house from 1978-1984. Why it`s also referenced as The Crowe House I have no idea. I will say that it was a pleasure to live there. I have very good memories and some interesting ones from my time there. If anyone has lived there and would like to discuss their time let me know.

Is there still a Westclox factory making watches in LaSalle, Il ? or are they only made in China now?

Was radium ever used at Westclos for making luminous dials & did the women workers develop cancer like In Ottawa, Il.?

Does Westclox still make clocks in LaSalle, Il. or only in China?

Did Westclox ever make clocks with radium dials that gave workers cancer?

The photo shown and location are incorrect. This house is actually at 212 West Van Buren Street. Here is a photo of the house as it is currently.

I see almost everwhere on the Net that states Ivy Knob fire tower is in Wyoming county. Raleigh county E911 told me its in Raleigh county & is given a raleigh county address. Wyoming E911 told me the same. Raleigh E911 gave me a map showing its location. Thank you so much

My parents were both at the Orphanage. From what I remember them speaking fondly of their time there in the late 30’s. The plays they would put on, ice skating, your birthday month being able to pick 1 friend to sit (for 1 special day) at a certain table and eat ice cream, and pick a small gift from the treasure box. My mom was very sucky when she went there, so she was given a t spoon of cod liver oil a day. My dad was given newer shoes just before he went in. He remembers seeing his shoes in a pile and told the person that he thinks those shoes will fit him…he was happy to get them back. When they were both alive I tried to get their records. I would of been able to get one but not the other. The one I couldn’t was be they were a ward of the state. My parents were contacted to do a video and a story about their time in the orphanage while walking through the buildings. We were all set to do it and my mother backed out…she was worried if she would cry making it. I so wish they would of been able to do the interview and tour. It would of answered so many questions.

I’ve spent the day trying to stop this house to be demolished tomorrow. There is no need for it. Thought it is not inhabitable it is with some restoration. Totally thinking of making a human chain tomorrow to stop it!!

Hello

I’m interested in learning more about this home. My paternal grandmother was Elizabeth Dauwalter Buchanan. Her parents were Frederick Dauwalter and Wilhelmina Kratz (she passed away when my grandmother was fairly young.) I think this may have been a home to my grandmother’s family at some point.

I may also have some photos to corroborate, but I have a lot of material to go through.

My mom, who was married to Elizabeth Dauwalter’s son Richard, passed away recently and in going through her archives I may have found some photos. Have to go back through to be sure.

Is it possible to say how John was related to Fred? I do know that the Dauwalter family in Boonville operated a saddle shop, if memory serves correctly.

Thanks

I have just discovered that my father, Claude Tilley, was sent to the Alexander Home for Motherless children. He was born in 1928 but I am not sure at what point he was there. His father died when he was only a few months old. Are there any records in existence for that time frame?

Anyone have a clue what's going on? Others have uploaded pictures today, so I'm not sure what to do in this instance.

My home at 309-311 N. East ave. Waukesha WI has been in my family since 1949. It appears to be one of the first homes in the area. It's shown on the 1858 platt map ALTHOUGH it received several additions including the last one in 1910 transforming it to a townhouse.I believe it was built by Absalom Minor who was a Waukesha Baptist minister as well as the president of the Waukesha County Bank.Ownership went to Addison Nickel,a Waukesha pioneer, in 1866.His daughter Mary Jane Rankin was the wife of Walter Rankin, president of Carroll College.This then became their first home until 1880 when they became owner's of the Alexander Randall home which was moved to 120 McCall St.There were two previous owners before my grandparents including D.D. O'Brien a renowned Waukesha photographer.

Note: The GPS reference is for 104 Garfield (north), not 156 Garfield (south). The city uses a weird numbering system. All numbers below 50, i.e. 100, 115, 202 are south of Lincolnway and all numbers of 50 or more, i.e. 152, 263, 511 are north.

This cabin was likely built to the same standard plan as the Fish Creek Lookout residence, (http://landmarkhunter.com/212713-fish-creek-lookout-residence/). It has been heavily modified over the years including several recent modifications such as replacing the rotten sill logs with modern dimensional lumber in 2020. The support for the porch roof were also replaced with modern materials at this time.

When Automatic Electric Co actually occupied this site and

approximately 14 or 15 nearby buildings, the official com-

pany address for this building was 1033 W Van Burean St

Chicago 7 Ill. Its' local phone numbers, before area codes

and all number calling, were (1) ESterbrook-9-4300 and (2)

HAymarket 7000, if my memory is correct. Once upon a time I

worked for Automatic Electric Co. It was my first real full

Excellent suggestion. I'm on vacation next week and have a trip planned. Pretty sure that somewhere along the way I'll find an occasion to put this to use. ;-)

Posted November 3, 2021, by Chester Gehman (gehmanc2000 [at] yahoo [dot] com)

Another way which works is to delete all the entries on the duplicate page and then rename it "Spare Page" or "Unused Page" and save it. Someone else can then use it for another landmark.

Posted November 3, 2021, by Wyatt

Great! Thanks for the tip Bill.

Posted November 3, 2021, by Bill Eichelberger

Wyatt, I'm responding to the comment about the duplicate listings. I've done the same thing on occasion, and found that I can open the duplicate listing and replace all the information with info for another landmark in the same county. It's not always easy to find another landmark in some counties, but courthouses are a good switch if one isn't already listed.

It was not our intention to offend, the language was downloaded automatically from the National Register of Historic Places some of the listings are old and apparently use antiquated language. I have however edited this entry to use modern verbage.
