Postville Review, 16 July 1909. From the Waukon Journal, undated.
At 3:30 o'clock Monday Afternoon, while sitting in his grain elevator, death came almost instantly to John B. Minert. He and his partner, Fred Nagle, had been whiling away the dull afternoon playing checkers and had just finished their fourth game when Mr. Minert sank back in his chair, drew a few gasping breaths and expired. John B. Minert was born in Post township, this county, fifty-six years ago and has resided here all his life. He held the office of Sheriff of this county for a number of years. During all of his residence here he has been engaged in buying stock and grain and had a wide acquaintance. He was a generous, big hearted man with a kindly nature. A sad coincidence lies in the fact that his sister, Mrs. Bollman, whose obituary appears in connection herewith, passed away in precisely the same manner and Mr. Minert attended her funeral the day before his death.
