Unknown Newspaper, Hoxie Kansas -- October 1896

Died: On October 8th, 1896, Jesse B. Rosenkrans, aged 18 years and 6 days.

It will probably never be known how the young man received the injuries which caused his death. He had been working for Willis Johnson southwest of town for about four months past, and it was at Mr. Johnson's where the accident occurred.

He had been riding a gentle horse, and it is supposed the animal fell with him throwing him on the ground in such a way as to cause concussion of the brain and spine. The accident occurred Sunday, October 4, and his death October 8, during which time the young man was unconscious.

Funeral services were conducted in the Presbyterian Church by Rev. James and the remains were laid to rest in the Hoxie Cemetery.

This is indeed a hard blow to Mr. Rosenkrans and family. Jesse was a young man of promise and the misfortune was all the more keenly felt because of his being taken away in the midst of good health and at the very beginning of a career of usefulness. The bereaved parents have the profound sympathy of the entire community.
