Sudden Death at Blockhouse
"On Saturday, April 7th about 4 p.m. Mrs. Maggie Seitsinger died at the Spring creek house. Death was the result of the breaking of an absess on the liver.
The family came to Spring Creek about two weeks ago from Kihross, Iowa. Last week Mrs. Seitsinger bought the Spring creek house at Blockhouse from Mr. P.E. Cleaves and took possession on Monday, April 3d.
Mrs. Seitsinger had been suffering for many years with asthma, heart and liver trouble, but since her arrival in Klickitat county she greatly improved and felt much pleased with the climate. Last week she
took a walk to the summit of the Butte near the hotel and returned highly pleased to find that she could walk three miles and not be fatigued.
On Saturday morning she was not feeling so well but later in the day she seemed better. About 4:30 she took suddenly worse and in less than an hour she was a corpse suffering terribly for a short time.
She leaves a husband and three sons. The husband was with her at the time of her death, two sons were in Sunset, Wash., and one in Idaho. They telegraphed to and arrived at Spring Creek April 9th. The
remains were taken to Sunset for interment."
[Researcher Note: Maggie Seitsinger appears to have been ultimately buried in the
English River Church of the Brethren Cemetery in Keokuk County, Iowa where she had most recently left from.]
