Mason City, Nov, 1.—Jesse Bracken, who fought with Lincoln in the Black Hawk war and knew him well, died here last night at his son’s home at the age of 100 years. Within a year he cultivated 40 acres of corn with a hoe. Two weeks ago he had his picture taken with five generations of the family, and just before his recent sickness was baptised and joined the Methodist church.
Transcribed Note: Find a Grave shows he was born June 7, 1799 and is buried in Lakeview Cemetery in Spirit Lake
