Henry Byersdorf died in Canada Recently
Boy That Had Been Making Home There, Left For Parts Unknown

St. Clair May 3
Word was received Friday announcing the death of Henry Byersdorf at the home of his son Fred in Canada. The body was shipped to this place for burial. Fred Byersdorf, son of the decessed, accompanied the body from his home in Canada to this place. A few weeks before his death relatives here received word from Mr. Byersdorf that he was in very poor health, suffering from the effects of the flu from which he did not recover. The deceased will be well remembered by the older settlers of this vicinity.
When a boy he lived with his parents on a farm a short distance from this place. Later he became a tiller of the soil on his own farm which he sold and about thirty-three years ago moved to Dakota, where for a time he operated a hotel. Later he went to Canada where he was living at the time of his death. Mr. Byersdorf is survived by his wife and three children, two girls, who reside in Minneapolis, and his son Fred of Canada, a sister, Mrs John Bestman of this place and four brothers, Albert and Fred of St. Clair and Ferdinand and Frank. All were present at the funeral except Frank. The funeral was held Sunday morning at 8:20.

Old Man Commits Suicide at Warner
Despondent as Result of Fle H. Byersdorf Shoots and Kills Himself

(From our own correspondent)
Warner, April 19.--H. Byersdorf, aged 77, committed suicide here last evening by shooting himself.
The old man, who has been living with his son, Fred Byersdorf, had been ill with the flu for about a month past, and had grown despondent.
He was a native of Germany but came here from the United States, and the reamins will be sent to the old family home in the States for burial.
Coroner A.P. Veale, who was in Lethbridge when the tragedy occurred, was called home, and is holding an investigation today. It is hardly likely that an inquest will be considered necessary. as it was a clear case of suicide.
