CROSSED THE RIVER
List of Old Settlers of Mower County
Who Have Died Within
the Past Year.
We give below a nearly complete list of the old settlers who have died during the year ending September 1, 1902. If anyone knows of any additions to this list, will he send them in immediately to this office, giving name, date of death, age and sate of coming to Mower county. Please do not neglect this. The list is a long one and reminds us that those who came here and pioneered in early days are now in advanced life and they are rapidly leaving us. No one of the survivors can afford to miss the meeting of the MOwer County Old Settlers Association on the county fair grounds in connection with the Golden Jubilee on Thursday of next week, September 11th.
