Can anyone out there with access to newspaper accounts for the week of Nov 28, 1903 find
an article on these two young men drowning? Martin Rector and Fred Monteith were my gg
grandfather and gg granduncle. They were ice skating across Spirit Lake late one night and
fell into an open water channel, drowning instantly. I have an account from their
hometown paper in Preston, Wisconsin. I would like to have one from the area of occurance
