Additional Information

Calvin L. Stevens:

Notes:

per 1880 census Calvin is living nearby with his aunt and uncle, John and Mary Patriquen.

per 1900 census: Calvin says he was born in Jul of 1873 and came to the US in 1889. His occupation is "Mine owner"

I wasn't 100% sure if the photo with this entry was of Calvin Sr. or Calvin Jr, so I checked with the Rock County, WI Genealogical Society concerning the portrait studio. This is their reply:

24 Jan 2014
"Here is what you need to know about Glass Photography (Charles F and Henry B). From 1859-60 they were in the wagon making business. From 1866-1894 they were in the photography business at various addresses. For many years their location was 21 N. Main Street, but in 1889 they moved to 11 West Milwaukee which was just around the corner and across from the post office. . They remained at that location until 1894. The next directory we have is 1898 and the studio was not found in that directory or in any after that year. So, depending on the age of Calvin L. Stevens, the photo was probably taken between 1889 and 1894, but for sure,no later than 1898."

    Hobo Stevens, Reputed Suicide, Calls at Home of Friend for Food

    Hoax Told by Friend of Stevens

    Suicide Fake

    Stevens is seen Near Here and Posses Are Out.

    Woodrow Beaver, a youth of 18, who was employed by Charles J. Stevens to drive him about midnight Thursday night to the York bridge spanning the Missouri River to perpetrate a suicide hoax, has confessed his part in the affair to Sheriff Arthur C. Parsons.
    Albert Schaivon, 18, a companion on the trip, knew nothing about the plot. And to cap the climax, Stevens, yesterday morning was found sleeping in the barn of Luis P. Freeze in Squaw gulch after being refused admittance to the house Saturday night.
    Beaver was sent by Mrs. Freeze to notify the sheriff, who, with Chief of Police Spurzem, organized a party and searched the timber along Grizzly and Squaw gulches all day without success. The search is still on.
    Instead of bumping from rock to rock along the bottom of the river as a water-logged cadaver with a hunk of lead in his carcass, Stevens, after chasing around the brush and hiding in the hills since early Thursday morning, rapped at the door of the Freeze house about 11 o'clock Saturday night. Mrs. Freeze, a woman of 70, opened the door. Recognizing Stevens, who started to speak, Mrs. Freeze told him to "get away from here" and slammed the door in his face. Her husband, who had retired, was awakened and told of the incident, but having no telephone and living some
