Heinrich Bosche was killed by the Dakota Indians on May 18, 1863, while he was plowing on the Pfaender farm in Milford Township, Brown County, near New Ulm. The Dakota were frustrated with their situation for a number of reasons, and on August 18, 1862, they went to war against the whites, killing hundreds. The main part of the uprising occurred in 1862, but small Dakota raiding parties continued to kill settlers in 1863, 1864, and 1865. Bosche was killed by a small Dakota party. The inscription on his gravestone reads "Heinrich Bosche. Born 18 April 1819, Murdered by Indians the 18 May, 1863." There are also other family members listed on the gravestone. Bosche's story is related on page 65 of "Dakota Uprising Victims: Gravestones & Stories," published in 2007 by Curtis Dahlin.
