|Death: ||Nov., 1897|
From The Austin Democrat, November 23, 1897:
Well Known in Brownsdale.
James Algeo, the man who was run over near Ramsey last night, and afterwards died at St. Olaf's Hospital, was well known in Brownsdale. He has made his home there for a number of years. He was a drinking man, and was somewhat under the influence of liquor when the accident occurred. He was a helper around the saloon while it was running in Brownsdale and was a general roustabout. He was husking corn for L. C. Gillett up to Monday, but came to Austin on that day, claiming he was sick. He was in the city up to yesterday afternoon, when he boarded the freight going east on the Southern Minneaosota, probably going back to Brownsdale.
ALGEO IS DEAD.
Man run over by the Cars Yesterday Succumbs.
James Algeo, whose horrible accident was reported in last nights HERALD, was at once taken to St. Olafs hospital. Medical aid was summoned and as quickly as possible an amputation of both legs was performed, one being taken off just above the ankle, and the other above the knee.
The suffering man was in such a weakened condition that he was unable to bear up under the shock, and succumbed early in the evening.
The body will be sent to his family in Lyndon, Wisconsin, for interment.
