-- 19 Dec 1917 -- Miss Maggie [Sampson], an aged woman, living alone
in a small house, 10 miles south of here, near Normandale, and
concerning whom or her relatives little or nothing is known; was
found frozen to death in the snow near her home.
She had been to Normandale
to make some purchases and started for home on foot, in a snowstorm
and the bitter cold.
Marks in the snow, where she
was found would indicate that she had wandered about as if
bewildered and had fallen in the snow two or three time before
It is understood that she
left considerable money in the bank.
