McQueen, Russell (1885? - 13 MAR 1911)

(Butternut Eagle)

Russell McQueen, youngest son of Mr. and Mrs. Dan McQueen, formerly of Butternut, died at Dr. Reilly’s hospital at Park Falls last Monday (Mar. 13, 1911), of typhoid fever.

The young man was an engineer and was taken sick while running an engine on a Minnesota railroad. He had been ailing for some time but refused to give up work until about two weeks ago. He became delirious shortly after arriving at Park Falls where his parents live, and was place in Dr. Reilley’s Hospital where he died last Monday at the age of 25 years.

He was a member of the Brotherhood of Locomotive Engineers, and six members of the order acted as pallbearers. The young man was engaged to Miss Lucy Henkel, to whom he was to be married in a short time.

The funeral took place from Park Falls Friday morning at 9 o’clock, when the remains were brought here for interment in the Catholic Cemetery.
