Many thanks to Sally Cantwell Basting for sharing her great family memorabilia with us.  People familiar with Shawano history will recognize the Cantwell, as well as the Hayter surname.  I remember our family having been patients of two generations of Dr. Cantwell's and the Cantwell-Peterson Clinic on East Green Bay Street.

Thanks again Sally for the great photos & documentation.  If you have information you would like to share on the Hayter and Cantwell lines, just email it in and we'll post it.  Thanks!

Tuesday, Nov. 30, 1909


While the death of Henry Hayter has been expected the past two months, the announcement of his death early Sunday morning was a shock to his many friends through out the city. He has been sick for the past three months and gradually failing and the end came peacefully Sunday morning at 2:15.

Henry Hayter was born in England, Nov. 30th, 1826, and came to this country when 3 years old, with his parents, who settled in Hartford, Conn., and would have been 83 years of age today, the day that he is laid away to rest. When he was a small boy his parents moved to Pontiac, Mich., where he resided a few years and when a young man moved to Detroit, where he worked for a number of years for a firm, buying furs. He came to Wisconsin in the early fifties and settled in Oshkosh. He was married in '61 to Miss Rebecca Craig, and five children were born to them, a son died in infancy, and two daughters died in Shawano in 1871. Only one son, H. C. Hayter, and one daughter, Mrs. W. H. Cantwell, besides the widow, are left to mourn his departure. He also left 7 grandchildren.

Mr. Hayter enlisted during the early part of the Civil War and was sergeant of Co. B 3rd Wis. Vol. and was severely injured by being blown up at Harper's Ferry. He never fully recovered from his injuries. He came to Shawano in the early seventies and for a number of years drove stage and carried the mail between Shawano and Langlade. He was mayor of Shawano for two terms, the first time being 26 years ago. On July 16, 1875, Mr. Hayter joined the Odd Fellows lodge of this city and was an active member for many years and always took a deep interest in the order. The lodge will have charge of the funeral this afternoon, and Rev. McGreaham, pastor of the Presbyterian church will deliver the sermon. The deceased was one of Shawano's highly respected citizens. He was ever faithful in all his trusts and always had a good word to say to all. By his pleasant manner he won his way into the hearts of hundreds of friends who will regret to learn of his death. He passed the three score and ten and has gone to his home above. The friends of the family sympathize with them in their loss. The funeral will be at the house at 2:00 and interment in the city cemetery.
