Kulock, Frank (11 Feb. 1922)

A letter from Mrs. Frank Kulock at Pauline, Idaho states that her husband was frozen to death near their home in the a blizzard Feb. 11, 1922. He went to town with a team of horses after the mail and was caught in the storm. He got back within about 100 yards of his home, but was unable to find the house. His wife thought she heard someone call several times during the storm but on looking out could see nothing for the driving snow. The next day she saw the sleigh standing on a hill not far away; the horses had been unhitched and turned loose. She made her way through the drifts to the sleigh and a few rods farther say a pair of shoes sticking up from the snow. On examination she found her husband frozen to death. He was buried at Pocatello, Idaho.

Frank Kulock formerly lived in Neillsville and in the town of Grant. In 1907 he left here with his family and took up a homestead in Idaho, where they have lived since. He leaves one son who was in Minneapolis when last heard from but who has not written home for several months. Mrs. Kulock is grief stricken and it is hoped the son may hear of her trouble and come to her relief.
