Winterset Madisonian, Winterset, Iowa
March 31, 1896
Laurence Wagner died Sunday night after a long prostration from paralysis. He has been sinking rapidly since the death of his child, a couple of weeks ago.
Being an ex-soldier, and a member of the Grand Army, that order takes charge of the funeral services, which were held this afternoon.
Mr. Wagner resided in Winterset something over twenty years, coming here from Indianola. Until afflicted with paralysis he followed the trade of a barber, after that he operated a laundry or kept a resuarant; as long as possible bravely keeping up the struggle of life when many another would have given up in despair.
He was of French birth, coming to this country when young. He leaves a wife and several children.
Note: Burial was made in the Winterset cemetery
