[NI016362] He lived in Stonycreek Twp & never married. Took active part in the capture of 2 Frenchmen who murdered David Pollock in 1812. He served in the Rev. War & came to Somerset Co. in 1789 with his bro.s John & George. KILLER HANGED TWICE - Johnstown Trib Dem. Sun Nov 2 1998: The 1st convicted killer hanged in Somerset Co. had to be hanged twice. The story started on the morn of Jan 25 1807, when Dr. David Pollock left the tavern of John Statler along the old PA Rd to continue his journey west. He was well mounted on a fine black horse. It was abt noon when a party of 5 packers headed east sighted 2 men wearing dark clothing & carrying guns. A little farther along, the packers saw a saddled black horse standing alone, & close by there was a hat. There was a trail through the snow, as though a deer or a man had been dragged into the woods. The packers were unarmed, but when the 2 men they had seen emerged from the woods & started toward the Statler tavern, they followed at a distance. The 2 men seemingly disappeared. The packers took the horse to Statler, who recognized it as Pollock's. He sent for neighbors to help him investigate. Pollock's body was found. He had been shot above the right hip, stabbed 12 times in the chest & his throat was slashed. The 2 suspects were followed down the old Berlin Rd to the home of Daniel Ferner. They found the 2 men, who later were identified as Frenchmen. The shorter man was holding a pistol. John Lambert, who had a rifle, challenged the taller man, who drew a pistol & shot at Lambert but missed. The man tried to run, but Lambert shot & mortally wounded him. The shorter man, who said he was Noel Hugel, was captured. He was tried for murder before Judge John Young in Somerset Co. Court on Feb 24 1807, found guilty, & sentenced to be hanged until dead. The co. had no gallows at that time, but Sheriff Michael Hugus chose a spot on the hill near the Luth. cem. 2 forked stakes were put into the ground, with a crosspiece between the forks. A rope was tied to the crosspiece & a noose fashioned around Hugel's neck. Hugel was placed in a cart, which was driven away. The rope broke, & Hugel crashed to the ground. A new rope was obtained & Hugel was hanged again. This time it took. This fascinating tale about the 1st murder in Shade Twp. "Near the scaffold stood a wild cherry tree, the branches of which were covered from top to bottom with men who wanted to have the best view of the hanging. Simultaneously with the breaking of the rope, some of the upper branches of the tree broke & a number of the occupants reached the ground about as soon as the Frenchmen did." For yrs following the hanging, residents & travelers reported seeing a riderless black horse galloping in the area where Pollock was slain. It became widely accepted belief that it was the spirit of Pollock's horse. Yrs later, when Jacob Lambert operated his tavern along the rd near Reels Corner, he named it the Black Horse Inn. The building was torn down in 1961.

[NI016406] The 1860 census list 8 chldrn. Elizabeth & Cora are mentioned only in MIL1. George, Ellen, Joseph A., Sarah or Sadie, Albert, Emma, & Milton were either b. after 1860 or deceased during the census. From Joseph's history, there is an obvious lapse in chldrn between the age of 8, ie b. 1852, & the age of 4, ie b. 1856. Since only Elizabeth & Cora were unmarried, perhaps they were b. during these yrs & d. at an early age. The Statement of Claim, Genealogical Proof, filed by Sarah Lambert on 11/16/1918 does not list the additional chldrn of Elizabeth, Cora, Flavius, or Melville.

[NI017679] Biography Of Eilert Rasmusen Friesth (from a booklet of biographical sketches written by Humboldt High School freshmen - 1928) Eilert Rasmusen Friesth is the son of Rasmusen Friesth. He was born in Stavanger, Norway, on January 20, 1849. His father moved to a farm about one half mile from Stavanger when Eilert was two years old. Eilert has two sisters living in Norway. Their names are Martha Larson and Mary Olson Tusted, one older and one younger than he and both are widows. The youngest one lives on her father's farm. His father owned a blacksmith's shop which he had on the farm. Eilert helped his father in this shop and was often up past midnight. He was the only boy and so did quite a lot of the work on the farm. They raised a large herd of sheep, as mutton was the chief meat in Norway. They also had a large area of soil to till. When Eilert was a boy, he loved the water. He lived close to the ocean and always wanted to sail. One day he made a small sailing vessel, all by himself. He was a good carpenter and it was easy for him. He had a great many good times on the water. Sometimes he went out to fish, but more often just to enjoy the sailing. When he was not working in the blacksmith shop, or at the farm, he was out on the water. He became a good sailor. Most of the boys in Norway did become sailors. When he was about five years old, he went to a private school. He got all of his education in Norway. He was the only one of the children in the family who got an education. Most girls in Norway did not go to school. When he grew older, he had a desire to go to America. At the age of 22 years, he started for America. He started on the 17th of May, which is Norway's Independence Day, and there were a great many storms on the sea while he was coming over. One night the wind blew so hard that it tore the masts on the small vessel. Some of the men became frightened. The only thing they could do was to wait until the storm ceased before they could fix the mast. Finally the storm was gone and the bravest of the men helped fix it. Eilert was one who helped with the repairs and it was not long until they had it fixed again. The rest of the voyage was safe. He arrived in Pontiac, Illinois, on the 4th of July. He had been traveling for about six weeks.The next 17 years, he worked on a farm in Livingston County, Illinois. He married Melinda Larson in 1877. She came to America at the age of nine years, having been born on July 4, 1853. Mrs E R Friesth (nee Melinda Larson) daughter of Lars and Melinda Larson was born July 4, 1852, in Hjelmaland, Norway. They were married on a farm in Livingston County and lived In Illinois for eight years. They moved to Iowa in 1885 and lived on a farm four miles from Badger, in Webster County. Mr Friesth was great grandfather to four children. His children all married and have their own families. He and Melinda sold their farm place and moved to Dakota City, where they lived for several years and then moved to the south part of Humboldt. She fell and broke her hip and walked on crutches for some time. Mr Friesth crossed the Atlantic Ocean seven times. The first time in 1871 when he came to America. The second time he went back in 1891; the third time in 1899 and the fourth time, he and his wife went to norway in 1909. His her died while they were there. She was 99 years old when she died and his father was 98 when he died. Eilert and Melinda celebrated the fiftieth anniversary, with over 200 friends and relatives present. They got a radio as a gift, and enjoyed it very much. While in Norway, he never dreamed of owning a radio or anything like it.

Mrs E R Friesth (nee Melinda Larson) daughter of Lars and Melinda Larson was born July 4, 1852, in Hjelmaland, Norway. Due to complications of old age and a heart attack two weeks ago, she passed away at the home of her daughter, Mrs S T Sampson on Wednesday evening, Jan 21, 1942, at the age of 89 years, 6 months, and 17 days. When only nine years of age, Mrs Friesth came to America with her parents, who settled in Pontiac, IL.

For the past seventeen years she has been a semi-invalid, having suffered from a fractured hip. But in spite of this, she was very cheerful and patient. She loved the church and her hymnbook and Bible were constant companions and it was this comfort that gave her courage to stand every trial. In the days of her health she was a faithful worker in the Humboldt First Lutheran Church and labored with those who laid the foundation for the church of today. Blessed be her memory. Around $100 was announced at the services which had been given by members of the family and friends in memory of Mrs Friesth to be given to different projects. Interment was at the Hovey Cemetery at Badger, Iowa.
