Altie Eliza Baker was born in Merton, Minn., June 5, 1859, and was therefore 38 years, 1 month and 8 days old at the time of her death.

E. church at Owatonna at about the time she was finishing the course at the high school.
Mrs. Burdick's death was received by this community with deep sorrow, for she was one of the most highly respected women in Oberon. She was in no sense a society woman, but was thorough domestic in her tastes. Her devotion to her family was conspicuous. She had a tender heart and kind words for the afflicted, and would be at their bedside to render assistance whenever needed. Her many kind acts are done without ostentation, her life was pure and ennobling. The world is the better for her having lived in it. Mrs. Burdick leaves behind her a grief stricken husband, three children, Maud aged 13, Zula aged 11 and Leroy aged 9, who will sadly miss the fond and devoted wife and mother. She also leaves behind to mourn her loss her parents Mr. and Mrs. C. B. Baker, of this place, five brothers, Charles A. Baker, of Luverne, Minn., Henry and Arthur, of Owatonna, Minn., Fred, of Aitkin, Minn., and John, of Oberron; two sisters, Mrs. G. W. Holmes, of Owatonna and Mrs. Harry Rush, of this place. The sorrowing relatives have the deep sympathy of their many acquaintances. Funeral services were held at the residence at 4 o'clock Wednesday afternoon conducted by Rev. O. P. Champlin. A large concourse of people were present including the members of the A. O. U. W. who attended in a body with regalia. After the services at the house the body was tenderly taken to Hillside cemetery. [The People's Press (Owatonna, Steele Co., MN) July 23, 1897, p 1]
LAD THROWN FROM HORSE HAS SKULL CRACKED IN FALL.
Maddock, N. D., Dec. 28. A very sad accident occurred near Flora. A 14-year-old son of Mr. Chamberlain was thrown from a horse and had his skull fractured, the lad dying at 3:30 Saturday morning. It seems he had been sent after the cows, and mounting an untrained and fractious horse, dashed headlong for the barnyard gate, which usually stood open. The gate, however, was closed, and in the darkness this was not noticed. The boy rode at the closed gate at top speed and the horse stumbled, throwing the boy and the horse some thirty feet distant, fracturing the boy's skull. Physicians were summoned, but there was no question but that the poor lad was fatally hurt, and he passed away next morning. Funeral services were conducted by Rev. Miller at Oberon.

MACKEY, Mrs. C. B.
MRS C.B. MACKEY DIES -- Was a Victim of Kerosene Explosion Recently
Mrs. C.B. Mackey, of Amor, passed away at her home near that place on Tuesday evening, after nearly four weeks of intense suffering. Four weeks ago today Mrs. Mackey was at the home of her father, Hans Jorgenson, when her brother poured kerosene over a fire out of a three gallon can. The flames reached to the can, the kerosene exploded, burning both of them. The young man was not badly burned and soon recovered, but Mrs. Mackey was considered in a serious condition from the first, and it would seem that her life was prolonged through these weeks of suffering because she was a woman of grit and would not give up. The best medical aid was procured and all that loving hands could do was done in an effort to relieve her of the pain and save her life. During the last week hopes were entertained for her recovery, but it was not to be, and she passed away Tuesday night. Mrs. C.B. Mackey, formerly Miss Annie Jorgenson, lacked one month of being twenty-one years of age. She came out here with her parents about three years ago, and on November 3, 1909, was united in marriage to C.B. Mackey, a prosperous young farmer near Armor. Of this union one child was born, which with the bereaved husband survives. At the time of the accident this child was in the room where the explosion occurred, but received only a slight burn. There are also left to mourn her demise, her parents, her brothers, and her sisters, Mrs. Rosenberg and Mrs. Buchholz. The funeral was held here on Friday at 10 o'clock, services being held at the home of M.T. Rosenberg Rev. E.S. Eidesvik, pastor of the Lutheran church officiating. The interment will be at the Bowman cemetery in the afternoon of that day. The bereaved husband and sisters have the sympathy of the people of Bowman county in this sad bereavement. --Bowman Enterprise.

PIECHLER, Herman and George
DIED IN WELL
Two Boys Try to Fix Well and Are Asphyxiated by Foul Gas.
Maddock, N. D., June 3. - Herman and George Piechler were suffocated by foul gas in a well near this town. In the absence of their father, who had ordered them to get a windlass ready to clean the well, they decided a windlass was unnecessary and started to work to clean the well using only a rope. Herman, aged 13 years sent George, aged 11, down into the well to get some debris. George found conditions unfavorable for work after being down only a few minutes. He called upon Herman to pull him up. Herman proceeded to pull on the rope and had Georg3e about half way up, when he lost his hold and fell back into the well. Herman became excited and went down the rope in a desperate effort to rescue George. George was dead and Herman was nearly so when they were found. Herman died soon after.
