Peter Barnhart, father of Mrs. C. E. Lundquist, of this city, died at Wasioja, Dodge County, Minn., on Jan 19, at the ripe old age of 74 years. He came to the state in 1857 settling in Olmstead county, afterwards removing to Dodge county, where he has lived ever since. On Jan 1, 1863, he was united in marriage to the wife who survives him.
A year ago on Jan 1, while staying at the home of their daughter in this city, the aged couple celebrated their golden wedding. Besides the wife, two daughters, Mrs. Lundquist of this city, and Mrs. Odel of Grand Forks, their husbands, grand children and a host of friends, stand mourning at the grave. Mr. and Mrs. Lundquist and also Mrs. Odel attended the funeral, which was held at Wasioja last Thursday. The large attendance of old settlers, neighbors and friends at the funeral, attested the love and esteem felt by them for the departed good old pioneer.
