  • Notes 
    • The following was related by Mr. Robert D. Kracke, son of Rose Daniels & Leo Kracke, on July 24, 2000, regarding the work of Isaac Daniels:

      Isaac Daniels was an itinerant butcher for years, working in neighborhood shops. Refrigeration was by ice only then, so there was a butcher shop located in every block. (Housewives bought meat on a daily basis). Then he worked for, or in, the Brennan Packaging Co. in Chicago. He processed the animals that required special handling after being shipped in from all over the mid-west. He supplied local small institutions, not many street customers. He did poultry, too.



      The following was related by Mr. Robert D. Kracke, son of Rose Daniels & Leo Kracke, on July 24, 2000, regarding the death of Isaac Daniels:

      It was traditional for my Aunt Sadie and her sister (my mother Rose) to celebrate their birthdays with a kaffee klatsch at our house, both birthdays only two days apart. On July 23, 1934, I was home because my summer job at Swift & Co. was working only three days per week. My father was home because work was slow for him also. Chicago was in the middle of the worst heat spell in its history. Grandma Daniels (Dorothea) and all the ladies had klatsched and were on their way home. Aunt Sadie and Anna Fastnow took Grandma Daniels to her home. Soon after leaving, we had a 'phone call from Anna. "Pa hung himself." My Dad and I popped in our four cyclinder Chevy and raced down to Grandma's. We saw an M.D. working on Grandpa Daniels (Isaac), who was lying on his bed. The two ladies had cut the cord that was tied to the upper hinge of his bedroom's door, and with the M.D. had gotten him on his bed (he was short but weighed over 200 lbs.) The scrub bucket that he had stood on to tighten the noose was still there. Dad and I left soon thereafter to take care of my mother at our place two miles away. Isaac had been suffering from the heat and knew that his health was failing. He didn't want to be in anyone's way. He could see no other way out, apparently. Soon thereafter, my parents and I moved in with Grandma Daniels and lived there until I married and I moved out. My folks lived there for a short while until they doubled up with Bill and Sadie Gallagher. Grandma Daniels went to live with Marie Daniels and her son, Ed.
