Birth: Jan. 7, 1861
Death: Nov. 8, 1901


The Bradford Republican 11/1901
"A worthless cat, stray, homeless, ownerless and frantic, has cost a human life. The first in August a rabid dog passed through the country south of town, snarling, snapping at every object within reach, affected unmistakably with rabies. Since then other animals have gone mad or been killed when signs fo madness have developed. A couple of weeks after this rabid dog had made its appearance, Barney Jurgeson, a well known tenant farmer was bitten on the hand by a cat, the wound did not heal quickly and for some weeks presented an angry suppurating condition. Since healing, however, Mr. Jergeson has been in usual health until a week or ten days ago. Physicians were called when signs of convulsions appeared, but despite all naught but death could relieve. He died Friday morning, Nov. 8Th, the funeral being held on Sunday following. The deceased leaves a wife and several children who mourn the untimely death of husband and father. In our dealings with the deceased we found him uniformly pleasant and affable, and freely offer our sympathies to the afflicted in their sorrow".
