Carskaden, John (1912? - 18 MAR 1921)

John Carskaden, the eight year old son of Mr. and Mrs. Orson Carskaden, is dead and two small sons of Mr. and Mrs. John Moen barely escaped the same fate, from eating poisonous roots supposed to be wild parsnips. Friday night on their way home from school they dug out some roots and ate them. They immediately became very sick and in less than two hours the little Carskaden boy was dead. Doctors were summoned but too late to save his life; the Moen boys, however, are recovering.

John Carskaden was a fine bright boy, and this death is a great shock to all who knew him.

The funeral was held at the Catholic Church Monday forenoon.
