Re: [NoblesCountyMN] Charles Aldrich
I found the obit in Worthington Globe, Thursday September 21, 1922, page 7
It was in the Dundee news
Charles W. Aldrich died here at his home Tuesday. Sept 12th at the age of 74
years, and was buried Thursday at the Lutheran cemetery with Military
honors, the Legion taking charge. The services were conducted by Rev. Larsen
of Slayton. The pallbearers were Cliff Gedell, Emil Anderson, Walter Apple,
Otto Brown, H. G. Lyons and Paul Scherlie. Otto Deutschman headed the
procession carring the flag. Bugle taps were blown by R. C. Olson. Mr.
Aldrich was born in Wisconsin June 1848, coming to Iowa in 1867 and then to
Dundee in 1871 where he made his home since with the exception of a few
years at the Soldier's home at Minneapolis. He enlisted in 1865 in the Civil
War being in U. S. service six months. Those out of town who attended the
funeral were Mr. Hamlin, O. W. Fish and son George and Olof Olson of Fulda.
The Dec date is what is at the courthouse. I have a copy of the obit if you
want it sent to someone.
