    Notes 
    • 1900 MN Census, Rushford, Fillmore County, Enum. Dist. 35, p. 11A & 11B, born Dec 1895 in MN, age 4

      Ella Mindrum passed away at 8:30 Sunday morning, April 23 at the home of her grandparents, Mr. and Mrs. P. M. Olson, Brooklyn. She had suffered for several years from that dreadful disease tuberculosis, but endured her trials patiently until death brought relief from her sufferings. The deceased was born Dec. 31, 1895 on Highland Prairie and was the daughter of Ed. Mindrum. Her mother died before she was three years old and she was given a home with her grandparents. Everything possible was done for her but it is very apparent that "Gods ways are not our ways" and it was only a matter of time when the end would come. Nearly five years ago she went to Colorado for her health and remained there for about two years and six months. She was somewhat improved on her return here but soon began to fail again. She leaves her sorrowing father and grandparents and one brother, Palmer. Funeral services took place Tuesday from the P. M. Olson home in Brooklyn at about 11 o'clock and later from the Highland Prairie Lutheran church, Rev. N. S. Magelssen officiating.

      Died on Easter morning at the home of her grandparents, Mr. and Mrs. P. M. Olson of Brooklyn. She had been an invalid for the past years and had been in Colorado for some time in the hopes of deriving benefit from the change of climate
