* Dallas Morning News, January 18, 1912
Found Frozen to Death. Special to The News. Rockdale, Tex., Jan. 17. -- Carl Walter, aged about 70, was found dead in the field of a neighbor seven miles west of Rockdale yesterday afternoon, having been frozen to death in the blizzard last Thursday night. Mr. Walter was a carpenter and had been to a neighbor's some two miles distant, where he had several days' work. He told his family not to expect him home for a week. Thursday night, after the blizzard blew up, seeing that he would be unable to do any carpenter work for several days, he decided to return home and told his employer he would be back Monday. He started home about dark and was seen no more until his lifeless body was found the following Tuesday. His family thought he was staying out the blizzard with his employer, who supposed that he had reached home in safety. (sent by BeNotForgot #46974545)
