Alfuth, Mrs. John (1891 - 7 DEC 1909)

The remains of Mrs. John Alfuth, whose death took place on Tuesday of last week in North Dakota, arrived here on Thursday, the funeral taking place on Friday from St. Hedwig's Church, Father Pudlo officiating. Mr. and Mrs. Alfuth were employed on a farm, and on Saturday morning Dec. 4th, both arose as usual, Mr. Alfuth going to the barn to do his chores while Mrs. Alfuth proceeded to build a fire in the stove, using kerosene, a blaze from which ignited her clothing and as a result died three days later. Mrs. Alfuth was but eighteen years od age, and was the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Julius Dranginis of the town of Reseburg, Clark County, Wis. The couple had been married here less than a year ago. The dwelling in which the accident occurred was destroyed with all its contents.
