Otto Knutson newspaper articles

In July I had posted a newspaper article about the death of Mari and Ole Finnestad's grandson, Otto Bert Knutson who died at a very young age due to a bizarre accident when he was struck in the head by a baseball.

This article appeared July 24, 1895 in the Rochelle Herald.




The second article appeared July 31, 1895, also in the Rochelle Herald, after Otto succumbed to his injuries.

















The Norweigan cemetery near Lee that is mentioned is the Union Cemetery where many of our ancestors are buried, though I have not found any records to indicate that is where he was buried.

The Flagg Rochelle Public Library provided me a couple of more articles; unfortunately neither mentioned his siblings so I'm still missing one of Elizabeth (Finnestad) and Ole Andreas Knutson's children.
