Blair Democrat, February 11, 1915


Mrs. Conrad Anderson, and two children came here about three weeks ago for a visit with Mrs. Anderson’s parents, Mr. and Mrs. Peter Jensen, who live in the west part of town. Last week the little boy, who was six years old, was taken suddenly ill with diphtheria and died within a few days.

At the first sign of the dreadful malady, the boy’s father was wired for and was making preparations to leave for Blair when informed of his son’s death. He arrived Sunday afternoon and the burial was made in the Blair cemetery immediately after his arrival.

(A penciled notation on the obituary card says “Not recorded in the Blair Cemetery.”) Reason unknown.
