|family story: |
Family story says Minnie drowned in the Zumbro River, which ran near their cabin, located about 1 mile from the village of Kellogg, MN. The cabin was sited on a hillside above the river. Apparently Minnie was in the water and the stong current held her hard against a submerged tree branch, under the water. The children couldn't get her free and, by the time they ran home to tell the parents, it was too late, she had died.
