LOCAL PEOPLE MAY SHARE IN SALAMON ESTATE
New York Attorneys Seek Relatives of Late Gov. Salamon and
Search Leads to This City
Inquiries have been made of the state department at Madison by New
York attorneys seeking to locate relatives of the late Gov. Edward
Salamon as a result of which the family of Herman Salamon deceased,
of this city, may share in division of property said to be held at
New York. Herman Salamon, deceased thirty four years ago, was a
brother of Edward Salamon, known as Wisconsin's "war governor" and
his family is interested in the report from Madison.
The Madison dispatch says:
"Madison, Wis. Feb. 2. A letter received at the executive office from
New York asks that search be made for relatives of ex Gov. Salamon.
It says some property of the Edward Salamon relatives is about to be
divided. L.C. Whittet was unable to find any relatives. Gov. Salamon
was a resident of Milwaukee. He was governer from April, 1862 to
Jan. 4, 1964, after the death of Gov. Harvey."
Evidently no very extended search has been made by Madison officials
for relatives of the late governor. The family of Herman Salamon, in
this city, consisting of Mrs. Salamon, three daughters, Doris, Clara
and Serena-and one son, Edward, having received no communication from
the state department. Their first information of the matter was given
by a Herald reporter this morning and Mrs. Salamon will at once
communicate with Mr. Whittet at Madison and ask for more details of
the New York inquiry.
The late Herman Salamon, whose death occurred in Germany 34 years ago
while he was there on a trip, was one of four brothers, of whom Gov.
Salamon, Gen. Eberhardt Salamon and Gen. Frederick Salamon were the
others. His daughters are nieces of the late governor and his son a
nephew and probably the nearest living relatives.
The report from New York that there was property of the late governer
to be claimed was a surprise to the local family who had thought that
the affirs of the estate had long ago been settled.
Without information as to the purport of the inquiry from New York,
Mrs. Salamon and her family are interested in the Madison report and
today addressed a letter to the governor's secretary giving information
as to relationship to the late governor. Friends here are hopeful that
the family will share in the estate, if one is to be divided, as
indicated by the dispatches.
