Box Elder News 27 June 1912
Obituaries are always a must--the great-grandpa I'm now writing about had 5 obituaries in different newspapers. Of course some of the information overlapped, but some is different. But the most interesting news article I've ever read was about another great-grandpa and his adventures in his "family benzine buggy." The Box Elder News reports that "the party had such a close call that Mr. Christensen stated yesterday he would have sold the machine for twenty five dollars and a song, if some one had come along and offered it to him, and would have cranked it up to boot." That quote is a golden look into my Great-Grandpa C.N.'s personality as is his exciting auto ride and the family's "Close Call to Death."
