Vogel Everett J. (6 FEB 1902 - 15 JUL 1917)

The sad news came last Monday of the death of Everett Vogel, which occurred at Harvey, N. D. It seems that he, in company with a relative, Tommy Vogel, started out to walk on the railroad track, after walking awhile and being tired, the boys laid down near the track, using their suit cases for pillows. When Tommy awoke he seemed stunned and Everett was dying and later died. Help was gotten from a nearby farmhouse and it was thought at first that he was killed by the passing of the train, but there was a hole in the back of both of the boys heads made by a sharp instrument and in the case of Everett, the blow killed him. An inquest was held but the only verdict that they could arrive at was death due to accident. The cause of his death may always remain a mystery, but the indications are that there was foul play and still the question comes up, what was the object as robbery was not committed.

The body, accompanied by Tommy Vogel, arrived Wednesday night via Spencer.

Everett James Vogel, oldest son of Frank and Lida Vogel, was born in the town of Loyal, Clark County, Wis., Feb. 6, 1902, died July 15, 1917. He attended the district School south of Loyal, and last February went to Hartford, where he had work in the Kissle Kar Co., leaving only a short time ago for Montana, where he expected to work. He was always a good boy and had many friends and his untimely death will be sincerely mourned by a large number of relatives and friends. He leaves to mourn his loss, besides his parents, two sisters, Hazel and Gertrude, and One brother, James, besides other relatives.

The funeral was held from the M. E. Church Thursday afternoon, Rev. Clock officiating. Burial was in the Loyal Cemetery. The family has the sympathy of all in their bereavement.
