Birth: 1882
Death: Aug. 6, 1890
Saguache County
Colorado, USA

Minnie was the daughter of Hans C. "Charlie" and Etta Albertson, of Veteran, Saguache County, Colorado. She was born about 1882. It appears that she was the oldest of at least six children and that she had younger sisters Josephine and Genevieve, and younger brothers James S., Charles N., and William T. Albertson. [Source: 1900 Census and the Saguache "Crescent"]

Minnie died as a result of a tragic accident. The following article appeared the day after her death in the Saguache "Crescent," Thursday, August 7, 1890, p. 3, col. 4.

********************

"Another Fatal Accident.

There seems to be an epidemic of accidents. An injury done by a kicking colt to Minnie, the 8-year old daughter of Mr. H. C. Albertson, of Veteran, resulted fatally on Wednesday night."

********************
[The next week's issue of the "Crescent," Thursday, August 14, 1890, p. 3, col. 2 gave the following:]
********************

"The funeral of Minnie Albertson was conducted on Saturday, August 9, 1890, from the Baptist Church, Saguache. Father Clark officiated and gave a touching and eloquent address."

[and from col. 3:]

"A Card.

Mr. and Mrs. H. C. Albertson desire to return their most sincere and heartfelt thanks for the great kindness, sympathy and help extended to them by friends and neighbors during their recent bereavement."
