RACINE Train Accident Causes Death of Racine Man

His body was found at 5:30 o'clock this morning alongside the tracks of the St. Paul Road at the east limits of Burlington....(edited out).

Roeschen was well known to many Racine residents and he had a considerable number of relatives, residing here and some in other cities. For a number of years he had been in the employ of the Wisconsin Gas & Electric Company as a lineman and trouble shooter.

Dan Strouf, of the Strouf funeral home, went to Burlington to bring the body to this city. Coroner Edward Yanny and Deputy Sheriff Kramer were summoned to the case, making an investigation.

Mr. Roeschen is survived by his wife and five children, the latter being Verna Mae 13; Helen 11; Jean Lois 10; Henry Jr. 4; and Jerry 2. There also survive two brothers, John Roeschen, 1924 Sixteenth Street: Charles Roeschen, 515 Eighteenth Street; and five sisters, Mrs. Thomas Olle, 1734 Villa Street; Mrs. Leo Lange, 1522 Grove Street; Mrs. Clarence Rosa, North Racine; Mrs. Katherine Music, Wayne, Michigan; and Mrs. Margaret Pfost, Fond du Lac.

Roeschen served in the World War and went overseas. His wish to be buried in the American Legion plot in Graceland cemetery is to be followed out. Funeral services will be held Monday afternoon at 2 o'clock at the Strouf Funeral Home.
