Hendrikson, William Mon 19 June 1939 Port Arthur News Chronicle
When a small canoe upset in Marie Louise Lake about 6 o'clock Saturday night, William Hendrikson, 26, of Ware Township, was drowned and Charles and Uuho Lindholm, brothers saved themselves when they swam 200 yards to the shore. Hernrikson's body had not been recovered this morning. His father, Ivar Henrikson and the Lindholms, with the others were at the time dragging the lake. Henrikson and the Lindholms went out on the lake in a small canoe shortly after 5 o'clock. They had estasblished a camp on the lake shore, and left Ivar Henrikson in charge preparing supper. The lake was choppy with high wind blowing. The canoe heavily laden, took ware in on one side, then was struck on the other side by a heavy wave and turned over. The Lindholms, fairly good swimmers, struck off for shore 200 yards away. Henrikson clung to the overturned canoe. He was last seen astride the craft. When the Lindholms reached shore, Uuho, in an exhausted condition, they saw that Henrikson had disappeared. No other boat was in the vicinity, and the brothers, with the young man's father, walked several miles along the shore in search of one, finally coming out on the Silver Islet Road. About 9 o'clock they obtained a boat and carried it to the lake. They were unable to find the body, however. Coming into the city early Sunday morning the Lindholms reported the tragedy to Provincial Police, and Constable Thomas Corsie went out to the lake with Henrikson, senior, and the Lindholms. Dragging operations were continued all Sunday with no success. The canoe upset in somewhat shallow water, but there are deep depressions in the lake and into one of these the body may have drifted, it is feared. Dragging irons picked up Henrikson's coat, a packsack, and trolling equipment, with which the men had been fishing. Henrikson was married, the father of two children.
