Carl Wickman, 92, Veteran Soldier of Indian Uprisings, Dies Tuesday
Carl G Wickman, 92, of Glen Flora, pioneer Rusk county resident who fought in the Indian uprisings prior to 1900, died Tuesday at St Mary's hospital.
Funeral services will be held Friday at 10 am from St Anthony's Catholic church at Tony, the Rev Father Leonard Lewandowski to officiate. Burial will be in the Tony cemetery, under the directorship of the McElravy-Geier Funeral Home.
Mr Wickman was born August 20, 1872, in Saint Lucas, IA. He left his home in Iowa at the age of 15 years and worked his way to Montana. While employed on a ranch near Helena, he worked his way through high school and the University of Helena, from which he was graduated. He then enlisted in the US Army as a private in Troop A of the 8th Regiment Cavalry at Fort Harrison, Helena, in 1896. Mr Wickman served during the time of the Indian uprisings and fought in 2 battles. He received a scalp wound in one of the battles, and was given his discharge at Fort Meade, SD in 1898.
Mr Wickman then taught school at St Joseph's Indian Mission at Great Falls, MT, and at St Ignatious Mission at Helena. Having learned the Indian life and the Sioux language, he was adopted into their tribe as a brother. He was later employed by the US government on a survey crew that ran the line between the United States and Canada, setting up stone cairns as markers, which still stand.
Mr Wickman moved to Rusk county in 1905 to set up a blacksmith shop at Ingram and later at Tony, where he also farmed until his retirement when he moved to Ladysmith. His marriage to Ann Schmitt took place in Minneapolis on November 19, 1908. Since the death of his wife, he has lived at Glen Flora. He was a member of the Catholic Church and a lifetime member of the League of St Joseph.
Surviving are children, Mrs Frances Schneider of Dubuque, IA; Mrs Evangeline Stark of Tony; and Albin J Wickman of Dubuque, IA; two brothers, Frank Wichman of West Union, IA, and John Wichman of Proctor, MT; and a sister, Mrs Katie Wilhelm of Burr Oak, IA. A son Arthur was killed in an accident in Kodiak, AK, on June 3, 1963. Mr Wickman never learned of his son's death.
