WALTER FISH, EX-LONE ROCK CITIZEN, DIES
Lone Rock, Jan. 28 – This community was shocked Saturday to learn of the untimely death of one of its highly respected former citizens, Walter Fish, that morning at 4:30 a.m. at the Whittemore hotel, after but a few hours of illness. Mr. Fish had had charge of a farm implement shop at Whittemore for the last year. Shortly after he had eaten supper Friday, he complained of being ill. He was taken to his room, and a doctor was called, also his brother, W. T. Fish of Lone Rock. He was critically sick all night, and the doctor called the trouble acute indigestion. W.T. was with him at the end. Walter was but 48 years of age, and was unmarried. He left an aged mother at Algona, the brother here, and several sisters. The body was taken to his mother’s home, and the funeral was set for this week Tuesday here. Burial will be made in a Seneca cemetery on one corner of the old Fish homestead.
From Swea City.
