BROKEN VERTEBRA IN NECK FATAL FOR BURT CITIZEN
LEWIS LARSON, 81, DIES FROM FALL AT HOME.
Burt, Jan. 9óLewis Larson, 81, met with a fatal accident last week Tuesday, when he fell down stairs early in the morning and suffered fracture of the third vertebra in the neck. He also suffered a gash in the face. He was taken to the Kossuth hospital for an x-ray, but as nothing could be done for him, he was brought back. He died early next morning.
Funeral services were held Saturday afternoon at the Presbyterian Church, the Rev. J. M. Doms conducting, and burial was made in the Burt cemetery.
Mr. Larsen was born October 2, 1857, in Denmark, and came to the United States when he was 22. He settled at Forest City, and there was married to Elsie Peterson. In 1891 they moved to Irvington, but in 1896 came to Portland township, and in 1909 moved into Burt.
In 1918 Mrs. Larson died, and on August 17, 1919, Mr. Larson was married to Hedwig Rassmusen at Chicago. She survives, also two sons: James, Olivet, Ill,; Martin, Titonka. Mrs. Henry Nelson, Titonka, is a daughter. A third son, Peter, died some years ago.
