Peterson, Louis (1860 - 23 OCT 1918)
Elmer Meach, secretary of the local E. F. U. Assembly, received announcement of the death of Louis A. Peterson, which occurred at his home in Bayside, Texas, Oct. 23, 1918, of tuberculosis of the bone. He was 58 years of age and had been a sufferer of the malady for several years.
Louis Peterson will be very well remembered by a great many of this community, he having located in Colby, Wis. with his family some twenty-three years ago, coming here from Ashland. His wife died about seventeen years ago. He remained here in business until June 1908, when he decided to go to Bayside and enter into the livery business in which he had since been active.
Mr. Peterson was a pleasant honest and likeable man and the many friends here will deeply sympathize with his two daughters and one son who survive him. He was also a member of the Colby E. F. U. Assembly and the organization will regret the loss of their sociable friend. He was buried at Bayside Oct. 26th.
