    Hi. John E Sheridan did work for Hart, Schaffner & Marx.
    Spoo & Son have an Oshkosh connection.

    "A photographic postcard of the Erwin Spoo residence at 445 Washington, Oshkosh, Wisconsin, Winnebago County.

    The house first appears in a city directory in 1910 and list Mrs. Georgia Mead (Mrs. Spoo’s mother) and Erwin & Bernice Spoo as living there. Current address is 1302 Washington Ave.

    Mr. Spoo’s father John and his son Erwin were the proprietors of clothing firm of Spoo & Son that was established in 1909. The firm was in business until December of 1959 when Myrtle & Eric Bailer purchased the business and renamed it Bailer Company Inc. It was located at 121Main St. then they relocated to 115 Main in 1922. The current address is 411 North Main St.

    John died on December 28, 1911 of heart failure. Erwin passed away in 1977.

    On February 22, 1922, a freak winter thunderstorm turned into a devastating sleet storm that paralyzed the city and surrounding communities for several days. In Oshkosh the damage started early in the morning when the weight of the ice started bringing down trees by the hundreds, breaking electrical, telephone and telegraph lines as well as the electric streetcars that left passengers stranded to walk their way home over ice covered walks and streets. Later in the evening the wind and snow started and the trees and power poles took a second beating. It took several days to restore any kind of normal convenience to the city. One lucky man driving a delivery truck for the Davis Bread Company, had a tree fall onto the hood of his truck while driving down Irving St., he was not hurt, but the truck was destroyed. Many homes were damaged from falling branches. According to the Oshkosh Northwestern, every large tree in the city received some kind of damage."
