Bert Bundy Is Dead
“Bert Bundy is dead” was the report heard by all Monday morning. While his death had been expected for some time, the announcement that he had passed away caused a shudder. He was born at Bundy’s mill, east of Ackworth, March 15, 1873, and had spent a large portion of his life in Indianola. He enlisted June 16, 1898, for two years in Co. A, 51st Iowa Volunteer Infantry, and was mustered out Nov. 2, 1890. Bert was always strong enough to take his place with the robust young men of this community, but this service in the 51st left him a physical wreck. Since his return home in 1899 he had spent some time in the west, but the change did not prove beneficial, and he returned again to Indianola to await the final summons which came early Monday morning. His prolonged illness had reduced him to a mere skeleton, and while he was not known to suffer, his death came as a relief. He died at the home of his uncle, W. P. Lucas, and the funeral was held there Tuesday, conducted by Rev. J. T. Hopkins. The pall bearers were six of his comrades in the 51st – Frank Himes, Will Schrier, Tommy Neil, Robert Slocum, John Campbell, and Birney Lloyd.
