"These are from the Rouse History that Mrs Riser and I compiled. She had a lot of the newsclippings cut out of the newspaper. That's why no name of the paper or date on some of these. She is currently in the O'Neill nursing Home." - Doris Counts

Although the obituaries listed here are from Holt County newspapers, the actual deaths and/or burials may have been in other counties or states.

Bader, Son
July 14,1887, The Frontier

FATAL ACCIDENTAL SHOOTING

     Tuesday morning intelligence reached this place of the fatal shooting on Monday afternoon of a 15 year old son of Mrs B L Bader, living near Star or Dorsey; The boy was out shooting or playing with an old army musket which was loaded for wolves, and by some means or other, we could not learn exactly how, the gun was discharged, the load entering his breast and causing almost instant death. Parties came in Monday night to secure coffin, leaving early Tuesday morning. The funeral occurred Wednesday, we understand.

     Mrs Bader is a widow lady and dependant to a considerable extent upon the work of her son and the terrible blow comes with double force upon her. The sympathy of the entire community is extended to the bereaved mother and friends. The mortality from fooling with firearms does not decrease very perceptibly and boys should be careful when handling them. Better let them alone, altogether boys, until you get old enought to handle them properly.
