HE DIED IN ALASKA
Telegram Announces Death of George F. Bartholomew in the Far North
On March 1st Mrs. George F. Bartholomew and daughter Belle, who are visiting at the Kuehnle home, received a telegram announcing the death of Mr. Bartholomew at Valdez, Alaska on February 28th.
Mr. Bartholomew had been for over a year in charge of the Valdez office of the Railroad Construction Company, building the Copper River railroad from Valdez to the copper fields of Alaska. Mr. Bartholomew had written but a few weeks ago that he had the grippe but was able to be about. This letter was received by Mrs. Bartholomew but a day before the telegram announcing his death. We are informed that the body will be returned to his birthplace at Valparaiso, Indiana for interment.
Mr. Bartholomew was a son-in-law of Hon. H.C. Laub and was well known to many Denison people. His wife had planned to go to the coast to meet him in the spring and both she and her daughter are prostrated with grief over his sad and untimely death.
