The Chariton Leader, Chariton, Iowa
Thursday, July 22, 1909

AUGUST LOF, the 13-year-old son of MRS. T.J. LOF, several miles northeast of
this city, was found in his room upstairs, at the LOF home, last Thursday,
hanging by a rope of binding twine, dead. No cause for the act can be
recalled. At noon he seemed cheerful and was going out with the men to the
fields to work, in the afternoon. At noon he went upstairs and was later
found as above mentioned. His father died a couple of years since.

Rev. Elmquist held funeral services on Friday afternoon at the home, the
interment taking place at the Niswender Cemetery. This is a very sad
passage in events and truly all sympathize with the grief stricken mother
and family.
