DROWNS IN THE BIG SIOUX RIVER
Frank Anderson, son if Mr. and Mrs. Will Anderson, east of town, was
drowned in the Big Sioux river late Sunday afternoon, under particularly
With his father and the young man employed on the farm, Lawrence Moran,
they went to the river at a point north of town, near the M.A. Agnes
farm, and Will Farring, who works the Agnes farm, joined them. The two
young men went in bathing and were having a fine time, and Mr. Anderson
and Mr. Farring were in a rowboat. Frank was sitting on a log to rest,
when he made a slight out cry and suddenly plunged into the water. The
two men in the boat at once started to his aid, but in their anxiety to
reach the spot where he had disappeared pulled off a block that held one
of the oarlocks. This delayed them a few moments, but on reaching the
spot Mr. Anderson went over the side of the boat and let himself down
full length. He was unable to touch bottom. The young man did not
reappear at the surface, and, none of the part being experience swimmers
or divers, it was decided to go to nearby houses for assistance. Help
was soon at hand and several took up the search. After about a half
hour Will Ross, in making a dive, located the body and brought it to the
surface. Dr. J. H. Kerr had been summoned in the meantime and used
every possible effort to resuscitate the young man, but without avail.
After all hope had been abandoned, the sorrowful return trip home was
made with the remains.
Where the young man went down the water is said to be about twelve feet
deep. There was every indications that he had been seized with cramps,
probably while sitting on the log, causing him to fall off.
Francis Andrew Anderson was born at Merrill, Iowa, January 27, 1893, and
attained the age of 21 years, 6 months and 13 days. He was the only son
of Mr. and Mrs. Will Anderson and had lived in Plymouth County all his
life. Frank was an exceptionally fine young man in every respect. He
was happier at home on the farm than in any other place and seldom left
even on a vacation. He was very helpful and always obliging to his home
folks and his genial nature made him popular and esteemed by all who
knew him. His sad and untimely taking away is a terrible blow to his
parents, his sisters, Lillian and Marie, and other near relatives, as
well as a cause for profound sorrow in the community where he was so
much revered. The widespread sympathy of friends can only in a measure
mitigate the keen grief of the loved ones and only time can heal their
deep wounds of affliction.
Funeral services were conducted by Father D.K. Hurley in the Church of
St. Patrick, Tuesday forenoon at 10:30 o'clock, and were largely
attended. Interment was made in the Catholic cemetery.
Relatives and friends coming from a distance to attend the funeral were:
Mrs. N. Nystrom, sister of Mr. Anderson, and her sons, Edwin and LeRoy,
of Sioux City; Mrs. Kate Foley, aunt of Mrs. Anderson, and her grandson,
of Ryan, Iowa; Mrs. Kate Moran, of Jackson, Nebr.; Mrs. Peter Arendt and
