CASS LAKE MAN DIES AT HIS WORK
APPARENTLY WELL BUT FALLS DEAD OF HEART TROUBLE AS HE WORKS IN BARN
Chauncey Gun Hasbrouck, 71 years of age, dropped dead last Monday afternoon at four o'clock, while working in his barn. Funeral services were held in the M. E. church in Cass Lake this Friday afternoon and the remains will be taken to Carlos Cemetery, near Alexandria, for internment, to-morrow, Saturday.
Deceased was brought up on a farm, very near to the place where he is now to be buried. He worked a large farm with his father and a younger brother until his marriage, after which he bought a farm adjoining the old old homestead and there he resided until he moved to Akeley, Minn., some thirty years ago. Shortly after coming to Akeley his wife died and left him with a large family of small children. He carried on, however, and kept the family together until his second marriage some two or three years later. 24 years ago he homesteaded what is known as Ten Mile Lake Island and lived there for several years but finally sold out and moved his family to Hackensack and later to Cass Lake where he has resided until his death.
He was the father of a very large family and we believe, only two of them have preceded him in the grave. One of these was Roy Hasbrouck, who resided in Hackensack and died about fourteen months before his father.
He was ever a hard working man of hustling type, and though he had many mouths to feed and feet to buy shoes for, he was always equal to the occasion and very few if any, unkind words were ever said by him that were not actually necessary to the well being of those around him.
Though it may be said that he lived to a fairly good old age, yet he was rugged and aparently in better health that he had enjoyed for years and no one would have guessed that he could be so near the end when he went out to work that afternoon, so his death, coming like a bolt of lightning from a clear sky was a paralyzing blow to his family and friends.
There were twenty five close relatives present at the funeral services in Cass Lake and four automobiles were in the funeral cortege that left to accompany his remains to their last resting place.
He has three sisters living. Mrs. Almira Pennar, of Hazel Dell; Mrs. F. E. Oliver, now living at Sauk Center, Minn. and Mrs. Lucy Sherman, of Cloquet, Minn. Neither one of the sisters could be present at the services in Cass Lake.
