Mary Magdalene Juneau

F, b. 29 March 1841, d. 14 April 1924

     She was born on 29 March 1841 at Milwaukee, Wisconsin.1 She was the daughter of Solomon Juneau and Josette Vieau.

The following biography was written by B.J. husting in Oshkosh:     
MARY MAGDELENE JUNEAU HUSTING     
At the request of Gene Sturtevant     
Mary Magdelene Juneau Husting was born in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, in the old Juneau homestead at the corner of Division and Milwaukee streets, March 29, 1841, being the twelfth child in the family of sixteen children born to Solomon Juneau, the first white settler, founder, postmaster and Mayor of Milwaukee, and his wife Josette Vieu Juneau, daughter of Jacques vieu, who was the agent for John Jacob Astor at the fur-trading post at Green Bay.     
The parents of Solomon-Juneau, named La Tulipe, came to Canada from Alsace-Loraine in 1789, changing the family name to Juneau at that time. The author of the Pioneer History of Milwaukee, says of Solomon Juneau: "He was, without exception, the finest looking specimen of his race I have ever seen. In height over six feet, large frame and straight as an arrow." He was honest, upright and forceful and the trusted friend and counselor of the great body of Indians then living in the territory of Wisconsin.
     Her mother, Josette Vieu Juneau, was a daughter of Angelique Vieu, a descendent of Mah-ke-nett, who was a daughter of Ah-ke-na-po-way, a full blooded Menominee Indian; and Joseph Le Roi, a French voyageur, who built the cabin on the Fox river near De Pere, which is still carefully preserved at Green Bay and is known as the Porlier-Tank cottage. It was erected in 1805. It is reliably stated that Josette was a woman of striking presence and high courage, and that on more than one occasion she saved the lives of the first white settlers of this section, when they were threatened by the Indians.
     Solomon Juneau and Josette Vieu were married at Green Bay, in September 1820, their honeymoon trip being to Milwaukee, by canoe, carrying all their worldly goods with them, where they founded their home. Of their children, Narcisse and Paul earned more than local reputations for ability, both being among the first Wisconsin legislators. Paul Juneau was the first Register of Deeds of Dodge County and the county seat was named in his honor. Both Narcisse and Paul acted as interpreters for their father, the courts at the Government in dealings with the Indians, being well versed in speaking seven different languages, the Pottowattomie, Menominee, Iriquois, Oneida, Chippewa, Stockbridge and Kickapoo.
     Mary Magdelene Juneau attended the Milwaukee public schools until she removed with her parents to Theresa, Dodge county, in 1852, where she resumed her studies under the tutelage of Miss Marie Faber, a then recent arrival from France. Later she taught District School No. 6 in the town of Theresa for three years, and after the death of her mother, November 19, 1855 and the death of her father, November 14, 1856, she made her home with her eldest brother, Narcisse, until her marriage to John Pierre Husting, which occurred on February 16, 1863, at St. Mary's church in theresa, the Rev. Pinchel officiating. The young couple began housekeeping in Milwaukee, moving to Fond du Lac the following year, where they remained until 1876, when they went to Mayville, Dodge County, where Mrs. Husting resided until her death on April 14, 1924. To them were born seven sons and a daughter, all of whom have been prominent in civic affairs, the most notable perhaps, being Pual Oscar, who was twice district attorney and twice state senator in Dodge county, and who was the first United States Senator chosen by the direct vote of the people, from Wisconsin. He was accidentality killed while duck hunting on Rush Lake, October 21, 1917.
     While her greatest concern always, was her family and her home, she was well versed in the leading problems of the day and wrote and spoke French, German and English fluently. In the memorial address of Senator Robert M. La Follette, delivered before the U.S. Senate on the occasion of the death of Senator Paul Husting, he said "The mother of Senator Husting is a woman of that native power and marked individuality so typical of our strong pioneer stock, and from his ancestry on both sides he inherited a fine nature, sterling integrity of character, and a rugged, intrepid courage that would make no compromise with defeat."
     Her death came after a brief illness, and her final resting place is between the graves of her two sons, Otto and Paul, in Graceland cemetery in Mayville.
     She was the last of the Solomon Juneau family; at her death the Marquette Woman's League of Milwaukee expressed its sentiments in the following message, "Our heartfelt sympathy in your overwhelming loss. To Milwaukee, she was an outstanding figure, as the last of a noble line, but to us, an organization of a thousand women, she represented the perfect type of motherhood."
     The Milwaukee Association of Commerce wired - "Milwaukee founded by Solomon Juneau, learns with deep sense of personal loss, that his sole surviving daughter passed away. It expresses the sentiment of this community in extending to the family sincere sympathy." It is rather an unusual incident when the Board of Commerce of a large city, pauses in its activities, to mark officially, the passing of a woman.
     Mrs. Husting was rich in treasured memories, one of the fondest being of te summer spent in the Nation's capital at the home of her son, Senator Husting, in 1916. She was thrice received at the White House by President and Mrs. Wilson, one occasion being her 75th birthday. Another unusual incident in her life, was the celebration by her children, of the sixtieth anniversary of their parents' marriage. On the occasion of the Solomon Juneau celebration, held in Milwaukee to commemorate the founding of that city, Mrs. Husting was presented, by the Solomon Juneau Centennial Committee, with a beautifully inscribed and framed memorial, done in India ink.
     
     An Appreciation - A Descendant
     
     The hundredth anniversary of the arrival of Solomon Juneau, Milwaukee's first permanent white settler, not only excites admiration and gratitude for the founder of a great America city, but also enlists a renewed interest in his descendents,
     In observing this memorable event, in a befitting manner, the attention of an appreciative constituency is especially directed to the most interesting figure among these descendents, the only living child of this intrepid pioneer. The distinction of being that child belongs to you MARIE JUNEAU. The thought that one of Solomon Juneau's own children is still among the living carries with it a high sense of satisfaction.
     It also notes the brief span of time, during which a wilderness was transformed into a garden spot and a primitive frontier village into a great modern cosmopolitan city. It emphasizes the rapid development that has characterized the metropolis of Wisconsin and lifted it into the ranks as one of the nation's great centers of population.
     To you, then, who embody the most sacred ties that exist between an illustrious founder and a contemporaneous constituency, we extend our sincere felicitations and well wishes, and pray the Almighty, who in his wisdom guided the footsteps of the father, also guard and protect the daughter. May the hand of time deal gently with you and the years still allotted to you, be blessed with the peace and contentment to which you are so richly entitled.
     To Mrs. Jean Pierre Husting, Mayville, Wis., 1818-1918. From the Solomon Juneau Centennial Committee. Harry R. King, Chairman; Henry Bleyer, Secretary, Alvin P. Kletsch, Joseph C. Grieb, Otto J. Schoeneber, John H. Manschot, John J. Gregory. (Inscribed by William George Bruce).
     A final tribute to this mother was paid by one of her sons, who said: "There are thousands, countless beautiful memories of out dear Mother that would grace the story of her life, but they are too precious to print. We think she was the best Mother that ever lived; we are certain there was never a better Mother to any son."2

THE HUSTING FAMILY

     The distinctive impress of the Husting family upon the social and civic life of that section of the Rock River valley comprehended in Dodge county has been such that it is regarded as but proper here to set out somewhat in detail something of the origin of this family in Wisconsin and of the services of its members to the community. Elsewhere in this work there is presented a fitting tribute to the memory of the late Hon. Paul O. Husting, United states senator from the state of Wisconsin, whose tragic death while hunting in the woods of upper Wisconsin in the fall of 1917, proved so great a shock not only to the people of his native state but to the country at large. Senator Husting was the second in order of birth of the eight children, sven sons and a daughter, born to Jean Pierre and Mary Magdelene (Juneau) Husting, then residents of Fond du Lac, who later made their home at Mayville in Dodge county, and the latter of whom, born at Milwaukee, March 29, 1841, was the fourth youngest in order of birth of the sixteen children born to Solomon and Josette (Vieu) Juneau, the latter of whom was a daughter of Jacques Vieu, a French trader in the Green Bay settlement, and his Indian wife. She was born in 1804 and it has been written of her that "she grew up without educational advantages and became a wife when she was fifteen years of age. Lacking education, she was nevertheless a woman of character and good natural endowments and was greatly esteemed among the pioneers for her kindliness and generous hospitality. Having in her veins a trace of Indian blood and having through life-long association with them become thoroughly familiar with their language, customs and habits, she acquired a wonderful influence over the Indians, and this influence was always used to foster the interests of the white settlers and promote the advancement of civilization." This earnest and helpful personal factor in the days of the beginning of a social order in the Milwaukee settlement and who died in that city in 1855, wa a grandniece of La Farrine, a noted chief of the Menominees, and it is recorded that on more than one occasion she saved the lives of the first settlers of that section who would otherwise have fallen victims to Indian vengeance.
     Solomon Juneau's name id inseperably connected with the name of the city of Milwaukee, for he was the founder of the town. It was he who made the first survey of the village, who became its first president, was the first postmaster, donated the first public square out of the large tract of land he had entered there at the mouth of the river at the site of the Indian village, and later on, when th village had grown to a city, was its first mayor. He entered that place as a trader in the employ of the American Fur Company in September, 1818, and nearly all of the remainder of his life was spent in the town he founded, his death occurring in 1856, the year following the death of his wife Josette. The latter's father, Jacques Vieu, was a French Canadian, born in Montreal, May 5, 1757, and early became employed in the Indian trade, first heard of at Mackinaw and next in Green Bay. He became expert in the fur trade, learning the language of many tribes and acquiring an extensive acquaintance with the chiefs. His success attracted the attention of John Jacob Astor and the agents of the American Fur Company and he presently became established in a trading post about two miles up the Menominee, where the Green Bay trail crossed the river. Jacques Vieu married a daughter of a sister of the famous chief Puch-wau-she-gun and they had eleven children, all of whom were born in Green Bay save the last two, who were born in Milwaukee. Of these Mrs. Josette Vieu was the third in order of birth. Jacques Vieu died in 1853, when ninety-six years of age and his widow long survived him, living to the great age of one hundred and five years.
     Laurent Solomon Juneau, whose familiar signature in the early records of Milwaukee was simply " S. Juneau," and who always was known by his second name of Solomon, was born in L'Assumption parish a few miles out of the city of Montreal, August 9, 1793, and was of French parentage. Comparison of old records and books show that his name was variously spelled as Juno, Junot, Juneau, Jeauno and Juneaux, but Juneau was his own way of spelling it and the one that was in use by his family. His baptismal certificate, written by the parish priest in French, is translated as follows: "The ninth day of August, 1793, by us subscribed, priest of the parish of Repentiguy, Lower Canada, was baptized Laurent Solomon, born this day, afternoon, of the legitimate marriage of Francis Juno, surnamed La Tulipe, and Maria Galeeno; both not knowing how to sing their names, were interrogated pursuant to ordinances. (Signed) L's Lamottes, priest." Juneau's certificate of naturalization, signed by a clerk of the circuit court of the United States, was issued in the town of Green Bay, Brown county, in the territory of Michigan, June 15, 1831, so that it appears that he did not become a citizen of the United States until thirteen years after taking up his residence on this side. He is first heard of in the west in September, 1816, at mackinaw, where he met for the first time his future father-in-law, Jacques Vieu, and entered the latter's employ as a clerk.
     As noted above, it was in September, 1818, that Juneau, after working for two years for Vieu at Green Bay, became established as the agent of the American Fur Company at the site of the future city of Milwaukee. Two years later (1820) he married Vieu's daughter Josette. For two years after his marriage he maintained his wife in the Vieu settlement on the Menominee ands then, in 1822, moved into the cabin which became historic as his first home on the site of the present city of Milwaukee. In 1835, he built a frame building and during the later years of their lives he and his wife had their home in a more pretentious residence at the corner of Juneau street and Milwaukee avenue. It has been written of Solomon Juneau that "in personal appearance he was a remarkably fine looking man, both in his early life and in his manhood," and portraits of him which appear in the old books justify this statement. "Standing full six feet in height, straight as an arrow, broad chested and of splendid muscular development, he had black curly hair, clear, dark eyes and a face that would have attracted attention in any assemblage of men. His fine physique, his courage, tact and good judgement made him a favorite with the Indians from the start, and in a few years he had acquired an almost unbounded influence over those who laid claim to the lands of this region, or who were attracted to his trading post at Milwaukee." For some years after Milwaukee was laid out Juneau was prosperous in a financial way, his operations both as a merchant and in real estate proving exceedingly profitable. A vast fortune was within his grasp, but nature and education had not fitted him to retain it. Gradually his possessions slipped away from him and passed into the hands of shrewder men, and on the 14th of November, 1856, he died, a comparatively poor man, he then being on a trip to Shawano to make a settlement with the Indians. One who was present at his death bed wrote that after giving some final instructions regarding the disposition of his estate and after receiving the last consoling rites of his church, a priest having been summoned, he "immediately afterward directed his eyes aloft and crossing his hands upon his breast, with a sigh of profound and peaceful languor, he breathed: 'I come to rejoin you, my wife.' The slumbers of syncope supervened as the night moved on and at twenty minutes after two a.m., Solomon Juneau breathed his last." The Indians selected the place for the temporary burial of their friend, a site adjoining their own burial ground overlooking the Wolf, and hundreds of the tribesmen attended this burial, attesting in the most affecting manner their profoundest respect and deep love for the deceased. Not long afterward the body was removed to Milwaukee and after an imposing ceremony in the cathedral was interred in the old Spring street cemetery, from which it was later removed to Calvary cemetery, where it now rests, and on a fine eminence in beautiful Juneau park, overlooking the city which he founded, stands a commanding bronze statue of Solomon Juneau, a perpetual memorial of the people in behalf of this able pioneer.
     Of the sixteen children born to Solomon Juneau and Josette Juneau, as has been noted above, Mrs. Mary Magdelene Husting was the fourth youngest and was fifteen years of age when her father died. In the previous year, 1855, she had been bereaved by the death of mother. She was a good student and when nineteen years of age became a teacher in the schools if the town of Theresa, Dodge county, which place had been named in honor of her eldest sister, Theresa, and it was there on February 16, 1863, in the home of her eldest brother, Narcisse M. Juneau, that she married Jean Pierre Husting. two of Mrs. Husting's brothers, Narcisse and Paul Juneau, served as members of Wisconsin's first legislature after the state's admission to the Union in 1848 and Paul Juneau was the founder of the town which bears his name in Dodge county. Her other brothers and sisters were Frank, Harriet, Charlotte, Margaret, Eugene, Mathilda, Ellen, Olive, Mary Elizabeth, Bonduel, Louis and two who died in early childhood.
     Jean Pierre Husting, who died at his home in Mayville, June 27, 1924, was born in the grand duchy of Luxemburg, August 4, 1838, son of Michael and Anna Husting, and was seventeen years of age when in 1855 he came to this country with his parents and his three sisters, Anna, Mary and Susanne, the family rejoining, in Dodge county, Wisconsin, the two elder sons, Theodore and Nicholas Husting, who had some time before effected a settlement here. Not long after his arrival Jean Husting entered the employ of a jeweler at Fond du Lac and the remainder of his active life was spent as a merchant and then became engaged in business in Fond du Lac. In 1876 he moved with his family to Mayville and during the period of his residence there took an active part in public affairs, serving as treasurer of the school district and also for some time as postmaster of the town. When Mr. and Mrs. Husting celebrated the fiftieth anniversary of their marriage, February 16, 1913, an occasion that was made one of much felicitation and congratulation on the part of their many friends, there was printed for private circulation, under the direction of their children, a charming little booklet under the title "Husting Golden Jubilee" and dedicated to "Our beloved mother and father, whose indulgence, tenderness and self-sacrifice towards us since our births, fill our hearts with devotion and gratitude." This booklet, which carries much of interest concerning the Husting family, is treasured in many a home within the circle of that family's acquaintance, and the ample portraiture and information there carried will be of inestimable value to future generations of this interesting family.
     To Jean Pierre and Mary Magdelene (Juneau) Husting were born eight children, seven sons and one daughter, namely: Charles Ottomar,who was born on November 12, 1864 and died August 27, 1918; Paul Oscar Adolph, born April 25, 1866, concerning whom further mention is made elsewhere in this work; Maximillian Roland, born April 17, 1868; Johanna Isabelle, May 23, 1870; Leopoldus Franziscus, July 23, 1872; Bonduel Juneau, June 23, 1874; Gustav Binsfeld, March 17, 1876, and Berthold Juneau, born in Mayville, March 6, 1878. All of these children save the last named were born in Fond du Lac. Charles O. Husting, oldest of the family, married Abbie Costello of Columbus, Nebraska, in 1891, and has for years been engaged in the insurance business at Beaver Dam, Dodge county. Maximillian R. Husting early became engages in newspaper work and has for years been located at Fargo, North Dakota. In 1896 he married Miss Anna Tscharner of Alma, Wisconsin, and they have a daughter, Lucille.

In 1895 she married Courtney W. lamoreaux, who afterward became county judge, and they have two daughters, Vera Rosalind and Marion. Leopoldus F. Husting, who since the days of his youth has been engaged in railway service, now residing at Madison, Wisconsin, married Miss Nellie Sommers of Brillion and had eight children, Juneau, Charles, Francis, Josette Magdelene and Mary Josephine (towns), Maurice, Jay P. and one who died in infancy. Bonduel A. Husting, who for many years has engaged in the practice of law in Fond du Lac, married Miss Kate Anderson of Eldorado, Wisconsin, in 1908, and has four children, Helen, Isabelle, Margharet and John Pierre. Gustav B. Husting, who also is engages in law practice, in association with his brother Berthold at Mayville, studied in the Law School of the University of Wisconsin and in 1903 was admitted ot the bar. He was engaged in practice at Park Falls and in Kaukauna until 1911, when he formed a partnership with his brother, the late senator Paul O. Husting, at Mayville and has since been in practice there. In 1907 he married Miss Paula Ruedebusch, a member of one of the oldest families of the Mayville neighborhood, and they have five children, Paul Alurent, Vivian, Maybelle, Mary, Louise and Elizabeth Jeanette. Berthold J. Husting was graduated from the Law School of the University of Wisconsin in 1900 and has since been engaged in practice as a member of the law firm of Husting & Husting at Mayville. During his college days he was a "star" on the athletic field, both in baseball and football, and afterward was for some time a professional ball player, being a member of the Philadelphia team when it won the league pennant in 1902. In that same year he married a high school classmate, Miss Agnes Sternberger of Mayville, and they have three children, Suzanne Madelaine, John Jakob Marzell and Constance.2
