Lovelock, Nev., April 29 [AP]
Mr. and Mrs. Frank Borgeson, long-time Lovelock residents were drowned today when the car in which they were riding failed to make a curve and overturned into a water-filled slough at the east end of tiwn.
Their bodies were found pinned in their submerged car which came to rest on its side in the slogh.
Borgeson, sixty-eight was a former mining man employed as a guard at the city water works. His wife, Mrs. Edna Borgeson, was forty-one.
Officials said Mrs. Borgeson apparently was dirving her husband to work at the water works, seven miles east of here when the accident occured.
A coroner's jury today returned a verdict of acidental death by drowning. Relatives of the couple have not yet been located.
Nevada State Jounral 1942 April 30, thursday page 2.
Couple Killed in car crash.

Lovelock,Nev. April 29[U.P.]
Mr. and Mrs. Frank Borgeson, Lovelock residents were killed near here today when their automobile skidded into a ditch.
Borgegson, 68, had been employed as a guard at the Lovelock water works. Mrs. Borgeson, 41, has a brother, J.J. O'Hara, at Grass Valley, California, and a sister at Sacramento.

So with that information you now have a exact date of their deaths and proof they lived in the Lovelock area. I am sure they must be buried somewhere in the Lovelock area.

Good luck in your search.
