----Source: The Greenwood Gleaner 1/8/1903


Ingelbright Einar Borseth, whose death was chronicled last week, was born in Norway March 21, 1865. He came to this country and located in Cadillac, Mich., in 1888, joining his brother Ole Borseth, who had come over ahead of him. May 28, 1890, he married Miss Clara Matilda Krokson and together they began hotel keeping. Four years later they came to Greenwood where Mr. Borseth was employed in the Hutchinson Cooperage Co. stave mill. It was about this time that he joined Linden Camp No. 1450, Modern Woodmen of America, in which he carried at the time of his death $3,000 insurance.

In 1896 Mr. Borseth and his wife engaged in the bakery and restaurant business in the Huntzicker building opposite the post office. They did a good business and about two years ago they moved into the Shanks' building where the business is now.

Mr. Borseth had been in his usual health up to about three weeks before his death. Then he felt poorly, but supposed he was suffering with a slight attack of quinsy to which he had been subject more or less. He kept about his work for a week when he felt so much worse that he went to bed and placed himself under the doctor's care. Even then his case was not thought to be so bad until about a week before his death his case developed into typhoid fever, though not with all the usual symptoms. Despite the best of attention on the part of physicians and loved ones as well as kind friends, the disease went for the worse and death came to his release shortly before noon Sunday, Dec. 28.
Besides the brother mentioned and some relatives still in the mother country, deceased leaves a wife, and two daughters born to them, Edith and Lillian, to mourn his early death. Their keen sorrow is shared by the entire community for the family is well known and deceased was held in high regard by all who had dealings with him, he being obliging and patient and always interested in whatever promised favorably for the well being of the community.

The funeral was held from Woodmen hall Wednesday afternoon at two o'clock under the auspices of the the Woodmen camp in which deceased had been a faithful member. He was a member of the team of Foresters at the time of his death. Almost the entire membership of the camp was out and participated in the exercises. An address was delivered by Rev. J. H. Collins of the Presbyterian church. Interment took place at the Greenwood cemetery, the pall bearers being neighbors: C. H. Clute, A. S. Aikins, W. H. Rossman, W. H. Palms, Chas. Haskell and P. E. Peterson.
