Elkader Register, Thur., 29 May 1902. Local News column. From the Guttenberg Press, undated.
Frank Weber, 17 years old, a son of Conrad Weber, who resides on Turkey River near Elkport, while assisting his father in getting a raft to shore, and while in the act of throwing a line to his father, stepped too near the edge of the bank which gave way from under him. The place where he went down was quite deep and the river a raging torrent on account of the late storm. The body had not been recovered up to Tuesday evening.- Guttenberg Press.
