OLD SETTLER CALLED HENCE
W.F. Scott One of the Leading Farmers of Ransom Township Has Sudden Death
Farmers and business men over the County were pained the first
of the week to hear of the death of Mr. W.F. Scott, one of the leading farmers
of Nobles county. On Friday Mr. Scott was riding the disk in the field when
about 5 o'clock in the afternoon he was taken with great inward pain. He got to
the house and a physician was called who relieved the pain somewhat with
hypodermics, but the patient suffered intensely throughout the night. Saturday
noon a consultation was held between Drs. Dolan of Worthington and Spaulding of
Luverne and it was found that an ulcer in the stomach had formed and broken
through so that the contents of the stomach passed into the bowel cavity. It was
thought that an operation could not be held at the home and Saturday evening the
neighbors brought the patient as carefully as possible to the home of his
sister, Mrs. J.H. Bryden in Rushmore, and on the early morning train Sunday he
was taken to the hospital at Luverne. On arrival he was found to be in such low
condition that an operation was not advisable and at ten o'clock he passed away.
William F. Scott was born May 4, 1861, being at the time of his
death 47 years of age. His boyhood days were spent near Traer, in Tama county,
and 16 years ago he moved to Nobles county an dlocated on the farm where he has
ever since lived.
It is the general expression of all that no finer man lived in
the district than the one who passed away. A good farmer - a good business man -
a good man morally, and a pleasant man to meet socially. There is none that has
not a good word for Will Scott. He will be missed in the community but mostly by
his wife, and three children, Dora, Bernice and Kenneth who are all younger than
seventeen years of age. A tender and loving father has left the home.
The funeral services were held on Wednesday at one o'clock at
the home and two at the Ransom church where he was an active member. The remarks
made by the pastor Rev. W.W. Gills were appropriate and fitting. The remains
were laid to rest in the Ransom cemetery.
