Olmstead, George E. (? - 4 JAN 1905)

Just before the east bound train came in Wednesday afternoon, George E. Olmstead, a traveling salesman who stood waiting for the train at the depot , dropped dead on the platform while conversing with Joe Davis, clerk at the O?Neill House. Dr. Schwarz of Granton, who was also awaiting the train, and Dr. J.R Brooks, who was at the depot, attempted to resuscitate him and Dr. John Conroy was hastily summoned, but no signs of life were obtained. Deceased had made his regular trips here (Neillsville, Clark County) for many years as salesman for the Buckeye Distilling Co. of Cincinnati, of which firm he was a member. It is reported that his family resides at Baraboo, Wis. The city authorities notified undertaker H.H. Eberhardt to take charge of the body, and the firm was at once notified by wire of the occurrence, and instructions asked for.

There is also information suggesting that the Town of Sherwood Forest was named by Mrs. Thomas (Elizabeth) LaFlesh after she was given the honor of its renaming. Elizabeth LaFlesh was fond of the fictional writings of Sir Walter Scott.
