Page 8 The Daily Herald, Wausau-Merrill, Wis. Saturday, Feb. 24, 1979 Obituaries Lt John MacSwain Mrs. Roger Springer Wisconsin black family finds its own roots in the memories of some of the oldtimers or information they simply refused to resolve. "Tom Greene carried a lot of secrets to the grave," James Greene chuckled, noting that though blacks and whites lived together harmoniously, there was still occasional animosity. In one incident, according to the Historical Society pamphlet "Black Settlers in Rural Wisconsin," a white man shot a black settler whom he suspected of courting his daughter. And in a reversal of that incident, James Greene says one of the sons of the original settler John Greene stood trial in 1917, and was acquitted, for shooting a white man he suspected of paying undue attention to his daughter. James and Dolores Greene said they intend one day to set down the family history, joking that they would like to begin "before our retirement." In her handwritten history of the Pleasant Ridge settlers, willed with papers and documents to the Grant County Historical Society and on microfilm at the State Historical Society in Madison, Mrs. Lewis wrote, "... this colony, where dominant courage and determination to be free and equal citizens amid trials and hardship did succeed, to become a part of Grant County and worthy of her history." "I guess because of that background, I feel a lot more about my blackness," James Greene says thoughtfully. "I remain proud about my ancestry and. my roots. I think it's important to maintain that, because a lot of us ignore it, or we just don't know." (From Page 1) Blacks and whites together built a school around 1870, and in 1882 both races worshipped in a log church they had raised. They were hardworking religious people who valued their newfound freedom. When the, Greene's former owner, who had allowed them to work while in Missouri, discovered the whereabouts of his escaped slaves, he wrote to Pleasant Ridge asking them to return. They did not, for the memory of slavery was too strong and the taste of freedom too sweet. Thomas Greene, quoted in 1936 in the Platteville Journey recalled that he had seen, "too many good families broken up on the auction block. A strong man or a good wench could bring $1,000 each, while owners would give away a mammy's children to get rid of them." "When we were kids, we fought with white kids and made up," Mrs. Lewis, born in 1889, recalls in a State Historical Society of Wisconsin publication. We never realized any difference in color. I remember when our white neighbors would ask my father to help stack the hay. He knew just how to do it. And I remember the times we would pack a lunch or go off the whole day to white or Negro neighbors to do some patching while the menfolk worked in the fields." At its height in the late 1800s and early 1900s, more sister, Mamie Davis, owned a dress shop and later a hotel and restaurant in Madison. A grandson of Charles Shepard became the second black to graduate from the University of Minnesota Dental School, settling in Minnesota and then moving to Chicago. Before beginning his research into the history of Pleasant Ridge, James Greene, though living in Madison, still had ties with the community. "I met most of them used to spend my summers down there and worked on the farm," he said. "I can remember as a child in the 1930s playing in an old log cabin which was part of the original farmhouse." And although he was just a child then, he remembered Thomas Greene, by then in his 90s. "The kids would play around him and he would talk. I remember him talking about the Civil War and how cold and desolate it was and how poorly supplied they were." He and his wife still return occasionally to the old cemeteries. Using the information from the old gravestones, they have compiled a genealogical chart showing the descendants of the Shepards and the Greenes. "The interest and curiosity that we got from "Roots" and the whole thing Alex Haley did just stimulates you to continually do it," Mrs. James Greene said. "Otherwise it's lost and there's no one to pass it on." Still, there are gaps in the history. There are question marks on the genealogical chart, indicating faults than 100 blacks lived in the community, trading in Lancaster and Beetown. But slowly, the community began to die. In the 1940s, hundreds of the descendants of the original black settlers would return for annual gatherings sponsored by the Autumn Leaf Club formed in 1906 as a way of maintaining old ties and held on land donated by Thomas Greene. At the time of her death in 1959, however, Mrs. Lewis had about 80 acres, and was the sole surving black landowner in Pleasant Ridge. "I think a lot of it was socioeconomic," said James Greene, an assistant state telecommunications manager with the Department of Administration. "There was a lot of pressure like there is nowadays. There was no place for them to work. They didn't have the money to buy farms and there was no one to marry." This was corroborated by his mother, Mrs. Mildred Greene, who left Pleasant Ridge in 1927 at 18 to come to Madison, intending to go to the university. "I saw no future there as all of the rest of the young people who left before me," she said. "There were no men to marry so that didn't look too promising." Much like the children of the white pioneers, the black sons and daughters of Pleasant Ridge grew away from the farming community, traveling to where there was work or the chance to get a better education. One of Mrs. Lewis' sisters, Sarah Greene, attended college in Missouri and stayed to teach school. Another Navy Lt. John MacSwain, 26, Virginia Beach, Va., a rural Merrill native, died at 4:15 p.m. Friday at the Portsmouth (Va.) Regional Medical Center of injuries received Dec. 26, 1978, aboard the USS Inchon. Arrangements are pending at Taylor Funeral Home, Merrill. Lt. MacSwain was born March 3, 1952, in Merrill, son of Robert and Geraldine MacSwain, Merrill Route 2. He was married Oct. 27, 1977, in Honolulu, Hawaii, to Sandra Roble, who survives. He was a 1970 graduate of Merrill High School and a member of the state championship wrestling team that year, and was graduated from the U.S. Naval Academy in 1974. A member of the U.S. Navy, he was serving as an engineering officer aboard the USS Inchon. He was a member of the Naval Academy Alumni Association and St. Robert Bellarmine Catholic Church in Merrill. Surviving besides his wife, Sandra, and parents, Mr. and Mrs. Robert MacSwain, are four brothers, Steven, Black River Falls, Rob, University of Wisconsin - River Falls, and Donald and James, both at home; and a sister, Mary Jo MacSwain, Evanston, 111.

The U.N. Security Council resumes debate on both wars this afternoon following an opening, 2Ms-hour session Friday in which U.S. Ambassador Andrew Young urged immediate truces and withdrawal of foreign forces. Young told the Council the United States had "stated firmly that we will not take sides in these conflicts," which he said have "wide and dangerous implications for the peace of Asia." In Moscow, Defense Minister Dmitri Ustinov denounced China's "dangerous provocations .. .against neighboring sovereign states" and said Peking was trying to "plunge the world into a war." The Soviet news agency Tass also lashed out at the United States, saying Treasury Secretary W. Michael Blumenthal's current visit to China is a "gesture of approval to the Chinese aggressors." Blumenthal told reporters on his flight to Peking he was carrying a message from President Carter on the Vietnam fighting that he will deliver to Chinese leaders during his nineday visit.

(From Page 1) On the eastern end of the border, three Chinese infantry divisions advanced behind heavy tanks through Quang Ninh province to positions overlooking east-west Highway 4, some 50 miles east of Lang Son. Thai intelligence sources said one division of Vietnamese infantry fought fiercly, sometimes hand-to-hand, to hold back the Chinese invaders Friday. The sources say the Chinese hope to cut Highway 4, which links Lang Son to the sea, and move inland to sever Highway 1 to the capital, thereby pinning the Vietnamese at Lang Son down on all sides. The sources said Chinese MiGs bombed stores of Soviet supplies near Haiphong harbor Thursday night, but a Peking official denied the report and the State Department said it had no evidence of the raid. The sources said Soviet ships were unloading missiles and radar equipment in Haiphong harbor when a half-dozen MiGs bombed warehouses holding Soviet war supplies four miles outside the city. The sources said there was a report of 13 secondary explosions when the MiGs struck, indicating the bombs hit arensals or ammunition dumps. The Chinese jets encountered anti-aircraft fire from Vietnamese batteries near the port, but there were no reports of any of the MiGs being hit or shot down, the sources said.

(AP) - The red-vest election campaign of Republican Gov. Lee S. Dreyfus continues to be "showboat politics," Democratic Rep. Michael Kirby complained Friday. He objected to Dreyfus' plans for purchasing a $13,000 van which would bear the governor's red vest insignia on the side. "Once again Dreyfus has ignored fiscal restraint in the interest of showboat politics," Kirby said. "Dreyfus already has pumped up his office budget to the bursting point, and now he has found yet another way to increase state spending," Kirby added. A spokesman for Dreyfus had said the governor wanted the van instead of the executive car, and would like it equipped with a work table and radiotelephone. The van also would have a Mrs. Mary See Mrs. Mary See, Hewitt, Wood County, died Friday at 9: 10 a.m. at home at the age of 102.

Showers are forecast for the Pacific Northwest, northern California, Idaho, and parts of Montana, Utah and Nevada. AP Laserphoto NATION weather official as the ideal situation to reduce the flood threat facing the state. "As long as you get a little melting and freezing and melting and freezing, it gives the water a chance to run off," said Jim Schulze of the Milwaukee office of the National Weather Service. Much of southeastern Wisconsin is still covered by remainders of heavy snows that fell in January, prompting warnings of potential flood dangers. At Milwaukee, the snowcover which had climbed above 30 inches last month dropped from 19 inches yesterday morning to 15 inches today, with the water equivalent at about 4 inches, Schulze said. High temperatures around the state Friday ranged from 42 at Neenah and New London to 30 at Glidden and Pence, and overnight lows ranged from 2 below zero at Hudson and Glidden to 25 at Milwaukee. In addition to potential flood dangers, however, state officials warned owners of buildings with flat roofs to beware of buildups of water and slush behind ice-clogged drains that could cause roof cave-ins. The warning came as at least nine incidents of roof or ceiling collapses were reported. The Department of Industry, Labor and Human Relations said roof collapses had been reported at a Wisconsin Rapids elementary school gymnasium, a riding stable in Beloit and a Madison drive-in restaurant where a canopy collapsed. Milwaukee public works officials also reported a "phenomenal" outbreak of potholes in city streets, blamed in part on melting snow and ice.

Lee Dreyfus' proposed state budget virtually ignores the need for energy conservation, State Reps. Kevin Soucie, D-Milwaukee, and Sharon Metz, D-Green Bay, said Thursday. The lawmakers, chairmen of committees that held a joint hearing Wednesday on prospective gasoline shortages, said the governor's highway priorities apparently were not set with fuel shortages in mind. Witnesses at the hearing raised the possibility of rigid enforcement of the 55 mph speed limit, a nationwide speed limit even lower than 55, selective closings of service stations and other measures to stretch gasoline supplies that will fail to meet demand by this summer. Lowell Jackson, Dreyfus' transportation secretary, announced a "new generation" highway plan at the hearing that he said would take fuel efficiency into account in future highway design. "While the Department of Transportation's energy conservation policies look good on paper, only miniscule amounts have actually been budgeted for conservation programs," Ms. Metz said. Soucie said the governor's budget calls for a 250 percent increase in appropriations for new highways. Ms. Metz said money for municipal and intercity buses was "a pittance" compared with the $82 million additional the budget proposes for highway construction. "At this crucial time when we should reassess our values on energy and transportation, the governor's highway program asks us to jump feet first into quicksand," Soucie said. The state Office of Planning and Energy expects a 4 percent overall gasoline shortage in Wisconsin this summer, and an 8 percent shortage of unleaded gasoline.
