      On Tuesday morning a six moths old child of Osborn [G.] Crosby died and the county commissioners were applied to for aid in the burial. Upon examination it was found that the most abject poverty existed and the aid society was called on for assistance. Crosby is a printer by trade and recently arrived from Chicago with the expectation of taking up a homestead, but his child was taken sick and he secured shelter in the old house near the railroad bridge where the family have lived for three weeks without a sign of furniture and only the floor to sleep one. Had the family made known their condition they would have been cared for before. They have been provided with all the necessaries of life and moved into clean comfortable quarters. (Brainerd Dispatch, 16 April 1886, p. 3, c. 4)
