Bergstom, Charles (1876? - 11 JUL 1919)

Charles Bergstrom was blown up by dynamite at Batsons Camp, north of this city (Owen, Clark County, Wis.), Friday after noon of last week. He was working with the explosive, and in some manner, which remains unexplainable, he detonated the charge, resulting in his instantaneous death. He was 33 years old, and is survived by no living relative at present in this country.

He was buried in Riverside Cemetery, and the ceremony at which Rev. Fr. Reader officiated, was attended by several woodsmen and an old pal of the deceased person, Wm. Peterson.
