Peder Johnsen LERFALD death

Cynthia from Random Acts has done a lookup for me in the St. Croix County, Wisconsin death records and abstracted the following information on my husband's great-great-grandfather:
Volume 18 Page 323

Peter Lerfald


Born April 25, 1855 in Norway

Died August 16, 1936

81 years, 3 months, 27 days


Father: John Lerfald (born in Norway)

Mother: Unknown (born in Norway)

Informant: John Lerfald, Woodville

Buried August 20, 1936 at Woodville Cemetery

[The reason for death was hard to read:] Carcinoma Maxlom [?] right eye. Sinus with catgasive involvement of face, nose and palate. [I am only writing what it looked like. Could it have been brain or mouth cancer?]

No autopsy.

Microscope confirmed diagnosis

Dr. saw him from November 1935 - August 16, 1936. Onset was in 1935.

She was able to tell me where and how to order this record (Registrar of Deeds) and the cost ($7). Cynthia's also looking into why the Woodville newspapers are non-existent for the 10 or 12-year time period that includes 1936 (no obituaries available). She believes it was due to a fire.

Volunteers are wonderful people!
