Frank Lundquist - (1863 - 1909)

HUNG TO BEDPOST

Frank Lundquist Kills Self At Galva

A Well Known Stock Buyer

Frank Lundquist of Galva, one of the best known and most popular stock men in that section, became despondent the last of the week after a high time in Sioux City, and ended his life by hanging himself to the bedpost in his room at a Galva boarding house.

The Journal says Lundquist was well known and much liked at the Sioux City stock yards, and that for 15 years his financial standing there was good. He went to Sioux City Wednesday of last week and registered at the Mondamin Hotel and then went to the stock yards where he bought a car of feeders. The Journal says that the remainder of Wednesday and Thursday he spent in having "a Good Time" in the Sioux City resorts, and then sick and tired and disgusted he went to his home in Galva and ended it all with a rope.

Lundquist was 45 and a bachelor. He leaves a brother, Gust Lundquist, and a sister Mrs. Olaf Wanberg.

The funeral was held at Galva Monday.
