Killed By Lightning
Cor. To Emmetsburg Tribune
Mrs. Ole [Carrie Strand] Johnson, of High Lake was killed by lightning during the storm Friday night of last week. The accident happened as she was going under a wire fence. Owing to a delay in the funeral arrangements the services in the Norwegian church here did not begin until after sundown, and it was long after dark when the body was laid away in the cemetery northwest of town. (Emmet County Republican, Estherville, IA, October 3, 1901)
