Weekly Home News/Home News (Spring Green, Sauk County, Wisconsin),
Feb. 2, 1905, page 1, column 3, obituary for John L. Ruhland:
Meets with Fatal Accident, John Ruhland of the town of Franklin was scalded and crushed to death by the overturning of a steam engine and boiler which were mounted upon a pair of bob sleighs. He was forty years old and is survived by his wife. The engine belonged to a sawing outfit which was being moved to Ruhland's place. He was driving and two men, one on either side, were steadying the machine with guy ropes. Upon arriving at a gate these two could not pass through and told Mr. Ruhland to stop. He drove on, however, and the bob slewed into deep snow, and tipped over on him. Owing to the escaping steam, it was several minutes before his companions could find him, and then it was with the greatest difficulty he was extricated. His ribs were crushed and he was badly scalded about the body and hands. He lived about seven hours after the accident.

Weekly Home News/Home News (Spring Green, Sauk County, Wisconsin), February 9, 1905: Plain: Friday, February 3rd, 1905, occurred the funeral of John Rhuland, the services being held at St. Luke's Catholic church, and interment taking place in the St. Luke's cemetery, Rev. Father Laurer officiating.
