Seeking information regarding the death of my great grandfather, Charles Barrett HOSFORD, on December 18, 1909. At the time of his death he was a widower and a resident of Nashua. According to some sources, including the definitive Hosford Genealogy, he was found robbed and dead in an alley in Chicago while on a trip to sell cattle. However, the online homicide records for the State of Illinois, Cook County and City of Chicago, which include the 1909-1910 time frame, make no mention of him. I was hoping perhaps someone would know of him or perhaps have access to local newspapers for that period. Any help you can provide will be appreciated.

Peter Christenson LOMSDALEN and his wife Anna had four children Gina(?), Louis, Chris, Walborg. Peter died in 1917. All four children were living at that time. In the newspaper account of his death it listed Louis, Chris and two daughters, Mrs Andrew WANGEN and sis not name the other. Walborg was married to Andrew WANGEN and had one daughter, Alice. Louis died in 1928 and had several children, none named in the obit from the paper from Fergus Falls. The paper stated that he had a farm about 8 miles west of Rothsay.
Any information would help. Thanks
