Mrs. C.W. Rost
Mrs. C. W. Rost died at the home of her daughter, Mrs. Ed Ketchum, Sunday evening of strangulation of intestines. She had been sick for six weeks prior to her death. Two weeks ago she was brought to Estherville from her home in Petersburg, Minnesota, and underwent an operation with the hope of relief. But her condition was too serious for medical assistance.

The funeral was held at the Ed. Ketchum home yesterday afternoon at 8 o’clock and burial will be made in Oak Hill cemetery.

Mrs. Minnie [Wagner] Rost was born in Germany in 1854. She came to America with her parents in 1866, and settled in Wisconsin. In 1870 she was united in marriage to C.W. Rost and the newly wedded couple went at once to Jackson county, Minnesota, and farmed in the northern part of the county until 1906 when he purchased a farm near Petersburg, where the family have since resided. The following children were born to Mr. and Mrs. Rost: Mrs. Ed. Ketchum, Mrs. Filex Kriebs, Mrs. A.E. Ammon, O.C. Rost, Henry Rost, of this place; Mrs. Harry Shreeves, of Fairmont, Minnesota; Mrs. Louis Lamer, of Maple Hill, and Willie Rost, John Rost and Edward Rost of Petersburg, Minnesota.

Mrs. Rost was a fine lady. She enjoyed the good will of every one who knew her. The many friends of the family extend sympathy to the husband and children. (Estherville Enterprise, Estherville, IA, May 24, 1911)
