-Born-To Mr. and Mrs. John L. HANNES, a son. (25 Sep 1902)

-For about three years past J. L. HANNES has been an adjunct to the Avalanche office, and of such assistance that he began to seem a necessity, but we have learned that we cannot always have our own way, and as his work at home seemed to need more of his attention we have reluctantly given him up. He has laid the foundation for a beautiful home on the southwest shore of Portage, and with his pultry, small fruits, nursery stock and garden has every promise of success. We expect that people interested in our county will hear from him through our columns, and his articles will be looked for with pleasure. (7 Sep 1905)

-THE HANNES MYSTERY.
Intense excitement has prevailed for the past week, over the disappearance of John L. HANNES, Master of the Grange, President of the Crawford County Farmer's Telephone Company and principal owner and manager of the Woodmere Poultry Farm, at Portage Lake.
He was transacting business here during the afternoon of Tuesday, the 25th, and decided to go to Roscommon that evening, on business connected with the Telephone Co., and called up his wife by phone, notifying her of the fact, and that he would be home by noon Wednesday, and wished her and the children to be ready to accompany him to Saginaw on the afternoon train, where it is known he had business.
He left the village by the Roscommon road between 7 and eight o'clock in the evening, since which time all trace of him is lost. His horse was found in the morning, unhitched from the buggy and unharnessed, and tied to a post in Roscommon, but no one could tell when or by whom it was left.
The conductor of the train south says that there was no passenger from that village on his train, and enquiry along the line gives no clue.
It is known that he had a considerable sum of money with him, and his friends who know him best believe that he was waylaid, or demented by overwork.
He came to this county five years ago and entered a homestead on the west shore of Portage Lake, where by undauntable perserverance he was making a beautiful home. Two children had been born to him, and his domestic relations seemed to be all that could be desired.
He had been a printer, and had held important positions on the staff of the York World and the best papers in the West, and for some time controlled the St. Louis (Mo.) Post-Dispatch, and in the interest of these papers had traveled extensively in the old world and over this continent. He is a writer of no mean ability and a man of unusual intelligence.
He had in some way lost a competence which he had accumulated before coming here, and his necessities compelled his looking for work while building his new home, and for four years much of his time was spent in this office, where he became acquainted with nearly everyone in the county and had won the respect and esteem of all, who now unite in deeepest sympathy for his lovely wife and children.
A fire in March destroyed a number of his buildings and deranged his business for this year, and some debts had been contracted, but no one believes sufficient to cause his absconding on that account, though some pessimists are sure all is wrong.
If there has been no foul play, we confidently expect his recovery from the nerve prostration, which we believe the only other reason of his absence, and that he will return. (4 Oct 1906)

-J. L. HANNES has been heard of and is in the flesh and in Canada. Having no cause, financial or other, to go away his friends still cling to the thought of mental abberation. His preparation for fall work on his fine home surroundings, together with other things palpable, strengthen their belief that he is adrift from his moorings and in time he'll be salvaged and returned to dock at Grayling to undergo repairs. His wife meantime is in sore mind distress. - Roscommon News. We apprehend that Mr. HANNES has only been heard from in the fertile imagination of the local editor of the News. It is certain that no one here has the slightest cue to his whereabouts. (11 Oct 1906)
