FOUND THE DEAD BODY OF HIS SON BURIED IN ST. PAUL
Mystery Surrounding the Disappearance of James Geisler of Elysian Solved by Father.
The mystery surrounding the disappearance of James Geisler, son of Mr. and Mrs. J. A. Geisler of Elysian, Minn., and brother to Harry Geisler of the Daily Review force of his city, has been solved by the finding of the son's dead body buried in St. Paul by the father while in that city today. Mr. Geisoler spent yesterday afternoon here while en route to the twin cities in search of his son, and received information upon arriving there as above stated which he telephoned his son here this afternoon. It seems that Geisler's dead body was found floating in the Mississippi river at St. Paul and upon being taken to the morgue and no one claiming the same it was buried by the authorities there.
James Geisler went away from his home in Elysian and the last heard of him was at Savage, Minn. on July 3. His father has been searching for him throughout the state but found no traces of him. He was 33 years of age, unmarried and was born in Dodge Center, this state. He lived with his parents some years in Walker, and lately at Elysian. He is survived by his parents in Elysian and one brother, Harry Geisler of this city.
Mr. Geisler will arrive in Mankato tonight and tomorrow morning accompanied by his son Harry Geisler will go to Elysian to tell the terrible news to Mrs. Geisler. The body no doubt will be taken up at St. Paul and brought to Elysian for burial. At one time J. A. Geisler lived in Mankato when he installed machinery in the Hubbard mill. — Mankato Daily Review.
