Elkader Register, Thur., 9 May 1901. North McGregor column.
It is with grief that we speak of the death of Mart Bromley, the veteran bus driver, which occurred Sunday night, May 5th. He had been ill from a paralytic stroke when death relieved his sufferings. He has driven the bus between here and McGregor for Mr. Church ever since the line was established. He has many friends here who feel that his loss can never be replaced. A large number from here attended the funeral which was held Tuesday afternoon.

In the fall of 1870 he located at McGregor, which has been his residence ever since. He was an honored member of Hervey Dix Post with whose honors he was laid to rest. Rev. Burleigh officiated at the residence.
