Minneapolis Messenger, May 12, 1898, page 1:
Ada -- Fred Buck is quite sick. Sometime ago he was thrown from a wagon in a runaway and was considerable injured in addition to having two ribs broken. He seems to have taken a back-set caused by riding a horse too soon after the accident and is very seriously sick. Drs. Rudabaugh, Murphy and Brewer were called to attend. (later, in the same column) It is with the deepest sorrow that we are called upon to record the death of our esteemed townsman and intimate friend, Fredine (sic) Buck, who departed this life on Tuesday of May the 10th. He received injuries by being thrown out of a wagon of a runaway team from which he never fully recovered, but was able to be up and around. Last week he was taken ill again and suffered most intense pain. Drs. Rudabaugh, Brewer and Murphy were called to attend and after due consultation, decided an operation absolutely necessary. Investigation developed an abscess internally which was removed, but the patient began to sink slowly but surely. He was conscious almost to the last and realized that his end was near. He bid his dear wife and friends an affectionate good bye. He was one of the very best young men in this section of the country, an exemplary Christian, a member of the Baptist church in good standing and one of our very best citizens. His funeral services were held in the Baptist church conducted by Rev. Rees, pastor, and assisted by Rev. Holter and Rev. Gouldin and his remains were laid to rest in Fairview cemetery. Rev. Rees preached a most eloquent and sympathetic sermon most suitable for the occasion.
He was born in Norway on Jan. 17th, and came with his parents to America in October 1863, connected himself with the Baptist church at Ada in Feb. 1893, and was married to Miss Minnie Baldwin Oct. 16th, 1895. He leaves a wife and two children to mourn his untimely death and we must cordially extend to the bereaved family our most heartfelt sympathy. The family desire to thank their many near and dear friends for their unswerving kindness throughout their sickness and affliction. God will repay them for their kindness. The remains were followed by a large concourse of sympathizing friends to their final resting place.
