Father of 13 is Killed in Farm Mishap

Waukon- Patrick Blake, 40, father of 13 children ranging in age from 4 months to 18 years, was fatally injured Tuesday when he was pulled into a corn chopper.
Blake, a farmer in the Dorchester area, was working on the Donald *Schwartzer farm 2 miles east of Eitzen, Minn. He was apparently cleaning the rollers on the machine when his clothing became caught and he was pulled into it. He was dead when found by others working in the field.
In addition to his wife, Margaret, and 13 children, he is survived by his father, John; seven sisters, Mrs. Donald Hegemann, Waukon; Mrs. Henry Larson, Dorchester; Mrs. Conrad Mauss, New Albin; Mrs. Joe Mauss, Lansing; Mrs. Henry Schulte and Mrs. Francis Burns of Hanover township, and Mrs. Leo White of Denver, Colo., and two brothers, John of Hanover township and William of Chicago.
