Son of Edward & Emma Benson,

Austin Daily Herald, Austin, MN; June 9, 1923; p.2, col.1:

Bernie Benson, son of Mrs. L.M. Christianson (sic), of Adams died here last night of heart failure. The sudden death was discovered by a friend, Neal Hardy, who came to visit him last night. The deceased had been suffering from tonsillitis, but appeared to be recovering yesterday, as he ate heartily and told his friends that he was feeling well.

Mr. Benson was about twenty-four years old. His home was at Adams, but he was working at the packing plant and roomed at 213 East Water street where his death occurred. He had been ill since Monday, but appeared to be improving during the later part of the week until his death occurred shortly after 7:30 p.m. last night.

He is survived by his mother, a sister, Grace, and a half sister, Marcella, all of whom live in Adams. The body will be taken to Adams tonight, and the funeral will be held at the home of his mother tomorrow.
