Death of C. Fredrickson.
News was received here Sunday of the death of Christian Fredrickson, which occurred Sunday at Canon City, Colo.
Mr. Fredrickson was born near Alburg, Denmark, Aug. 21, 1842, came to America in 1863 and enlisted in Co. G, 9th Kansas Cavalry Volunteers, where he served until the end of the war. In 1884 he moved to Wilson county. The family has lived in Fredonia for a number years; Mr. Fredrickson at one time owning an interest in the flouring mills here.
Mr. Frederickson had been in very poor health for some time, and the move to Colorado was in the hope that the change of climate would be beneficial. He was taken sick, of Peritonitis, Sept. 12, and died at 11 o’clock Sunday.
The body was brought here for interment, and the funeral services were conducted at the Christian church Wednesday morning, being in charge of Constellation Lodge, No. 95, of which he was a member.
By his upright, manly character and his straight-forward Christian life, Mr. Fredrickson made many friends during the time he lived among us, all of whom will extend kindest sympathies to the wife, daughter and son in their hour of sadness.
