January 1936: The Moonlight Gardens dance hall, Greenwood, burned to the ground in an early morning blaze on Saturday. The fire threatened danger to the entire city for a time when a high wind carried burning embers out over the town. The fire, of unknown origin, was discovered shortly after 2 a.m. by Gilbert Rhode, a farm youth, who had attended a dance at the hall that evening and was driving through Greenwood after having taken a companion home. He notified the fire department. Firemen were unable to check the rapid spread of the flames but succeeded in saving the home of Mrs. Charlotte Haglund, next to the flaming building. Snow on the roofs of the nearby buildings was credited with preventing the fire from spreading farther. The Moonlight Gardens hall, formerly known as the Bagley hall, was built in 1892. The present owner, Charles Stout, estimated the los at $25,000, which is partly covered by insurance. Included in the loss were the set of drums owned by James Neuenfeldt, who had left them in the hall after the dance.

HAILEY, Michael (c1836 - Jan 1907)

...Michael Haley (a cripple in that one knee was stiff, shortening that leg) lived 1 miles southeast of the school house..."  (Varney letter March 10, 1937 Braun Settlement School History)

1/24/1907: "DIED IN MAD HOUSE: Last Saturday old Michael Haley, an early resident of Clark County and well remembered by the older resident of Greenwood, died in the state asylum at West Salem, Wis., after twenty-five years of insane raving and delusions. The records of the asylum, as furnished by Supt. O. Cullisckson, show that he was committed from this County July 7, 1882, at the age of 46 years, to the state asylum at Oshkosh, and a few years later was transferred the West Salem asylum, where he had remained ever since. From some of the older residents it is learned that old Michael was a bachelor, who lived very much alone, on what is now known as the John Sanford farm, west of Greenwood. He is said to have depended largely upon his vegetable garden for revenue. While not a recluse he lived alone and to himself, and it is thought his lonesome life had much to do with turning his mind. It is remembered that he used to wander about with a witch hazel bush, claiming to be able to locate wells with its aid. Nothing can be learned of his history previous to his settlement here, and if there was any sentimental disappointment or tragedy connected with it, it probably is buried with him. At the asylum he claimed to have a brother living in Greenwood, and was so positive in the assertion that inquiry was recently made of Postmaster Hartson by the asylum superintendent, but those of the old time residents here who knew him say it must have been an insane delusion of the man, as no brother is known to have ever lived here. While not of the violent type, his insanity was considered dangerous enough to warrant having him committed to the asylum Source: GREENWOOD GLEANER

                                 The 1914 Flood at Hemlock [History]

Hemlock, located twenty miles north of Neillsville (three and one-half miles north of Greenwood), in Warner Township (sec 15), is the location of the dam of the Black River Logging Company's dam, also of a grist and sawmill, the latter owned by Niran H. Withee. The dam was completed in 1879, at a cost of $21,000, and is one of the most complete works of improvement in the county. Of the other improvements, the gristmill was finished in 1879, and is supplied with three-run of stone. It is a frame, four stories high, and does a large local business. The sawmill is also of frame, two stories high, and is furnished with a rotary and upright saw. The total investment is between $10,000 and $15,000. The settlement is connected with Neillsville by telephone, erected in 1879 at a cost of $800. 1881 History The little village of Hemlock, on Black river, has two large mills, one flour mill and one lumber, shingle and lath mill. The waterpower, by which these mills are run, is unlimited here. There is a sufficient volume and fall to run any number of mills and factories. Hemlock is the northern terminus of the telephone line that extends south to La Crosse, and east to the towns on the Wisconsin Central line. It is the longest telephone line in this section of the country. 1890 History Hemlock hamlet consisted of a boardinghouse, a store and eight houses, including that of the Withee family. This hamlet bore the name of Hemlock, a name which was adapted from a stand of hemlock trees in the area, and which has continued in the name of a cheese factory located a mile or two to the east. The great flood of 1914 tore out the dam and left hardly a trace of the sawmill, or the gristmill. The end of the mills meant the end of industry at Hemlock. Theodore Withee was then involved. He had not the resources with which to tackle the restoration of the mills. The wind also struck, tearing down the cow barn and the Warner town hall, across the lane from the eastside of the Withee lawn. The townhall had been located in the old lush days, when Hemlock promised to become a real village. It had been a lively place, with preaching, dancing and Sunday school, in addition to the infrequent town meetings.

1880 sec 10 hotel Geo. Henshall (Hemlock area, 1893 = S. Moore property)

July 1880: The Fourth of July, being on Sunday, was celebrated on the Fifth in Greenwood. The Americans, Germans and Norwegians, all having separate entertainments, each celebrated the day according to their own customs, as they have done in former days under their own fig trees. The evening brought a very large party together at the old Robinson hall. A grand time was had by all. The supper, gotten up by Henshall and his wife, was complete in all its expectation. All was full of life until daylight, when each one sought a place in which to catch a few hours of slumber. In an incredible short time the streets were as still as the yonder grave yard. The large flag strung across the street has been taken down for future use. However, the two flags, four feet by six feet, upon Brown's and Eaton's stores are to float on undisturbed. They shall remain until the glad news of Gen. Garfield's election to the presidency shall be heralded from the Atlantic shores to the Pacific slopes.

Jan 1881: Ole Melby, a Norwegian in T. J. LaFlesh's logging camp, had a two-inch square of his skull broken in by a falling tree. He was taken to Greenwood's Henshall's Hotel and Dr. Thomas was summoned. Melby's life was in danger, but with the skillful treatment of Dr. Thomas, he is reported as doing well and expected to fuller recover.

April 17, 1884: Geo. Henshall is remodeling his house and when it is completed he will serve up meals to the weary traveler in first-class style.

August 1886: A Saturday news special from La Crosse, on Aug. 7, says that a large Clark County land sale was completed on that date. All of the Black River lands which had belonged to the C. C. Washburn estate, amounting to about 23, 000 acres, were sold to J. J. Hogan. Most of the pine timber, the dispatch states, has been cut from these lands. But, there is a large amount of valuable hard wood and a great deal of the land will make good farms. It will seem strange to the Clark County people to have the name of C. C. Washburn stricken from their county map. However, J. J. Hogan will look well as the lands' new owner. (The name of Washburn didn't disappear from the Clark County map as predicted. One of the county's townships was named after C. C. Washburn and remains as such. D.Z.)

"... In the early '80's there were at "our Rips" three channels in the river (near the Warner-Eaton township line on the Black River), forming two large and distinct islands, not the mere patches of ground they are now. In 1874, A. W. Bailey (Abner Woodman Bailey 1825-1900, father of Dorry Bailey) erected a sash and door factory on the west island which was run for a few years, when it was made into a grist mill owned and operated by Robert Schofield (1836-1924), and which had hammered-out teeth in stone to grind flour...Later, when Mr. Schofield settled on his farm (Eaton sec 3), he started to move these stones for use in building his barn, but changed his mind, and the stones may still be seen on William Hogue's land near the "Rips". A dam had been built to run these mills by means of a water wheel, but it was blown out in 1882..." The Hub of Clark County (1853 - 1934)

"... about eighteen miles north of Neillsville, on the west bank of Black River, later called "Eaton Town", and now known as the "Rips"... Sometimes one of the head logs in the bottom would run into something which would stop it, then it would stop others, and unless the men could get it loosened a jam was soon formed; then they have to get down ahead of the jam and the "key log", as it was called, before they loosen the jam, and if any of the men were caught in this rush of logs when loosened, well, his drive was ended. Some of the rnen would stay on logs when going over a rapids and "shoot the rapids" while others would go on the bank until were past them. While "shooting the rapids" at the "Rips" in a boat, Charles Hogue (who was at time considered the best boatman on the river) was upset into it. He was under so long the men said: "Well, I guess Charley is gone this time", but he finally came up quite a ways down the river under the boat but managed to get out and reach shore safely..."

March 1, 1901: We acknowledge a pleasant ride Wednesday after John Memhard's driving horse. We must confess, however, that we feared two fears: one was that we might have to dig ourselves out of some snow pile from turning corners too quickly, and the other was that Marshal Hogue (William Hogue) might get hold of us and run us in for fast driving in city limits.
