  • Mathias L. Richard died on 15 August 1912 at age 20 The Mississippi River claimed its third victim inside of twenty-four hours on Thursday afternoon, August 15, 1912, when Matt Richard, aged twenty-one years, of Kieler, Wisconsin, was drowned at the Old Rock House, an old structure a short distance above Sinope Creek. Richard, accompanied by two companions, went up that way early in the afternoon to go swimming. After a short time in the water, Richard stepped off a reef, which runs along the creek, and was, as far as his companions know, seized with cramps, and sank immediately. He was accompanied by two young men named Johnson and Cullen. The accident occurred about three o'clock, and the body was recovered about an hour later by fishermen and his companions, who dragged the river at the same point where he went down. The water at that place was a little over ten feet deep. The victim of the tragedy was the son of John Richard, a farmer at Kieler, Wisconsin, and was employed by his father on the farm. Richard with his two companions drover over from Kieler on Thursday to spend the day at Kimball's Park. The father of the young man telephoned down Thursday evening requesting that the body be brought there immediately.
  • He was buried after 15 August 1912 at Immaculate Conception Church Cemetery, Kieler, Grant, Wisconsin.

In lieu of flowers, memorials may be given to Wisconsin Right to Life. The Richard family would like to express their sincere appreciation to Hospice of Dubuque for their care.
