Boinske, Michael Jr. (16 OCT 1882 - 11 MAR 1902)
Michael Boinske Jr. was drowned while attempting to cross the south fork of the Eau Claire River on the ice in the town of Reseburg, Clark Co., Wis. on Tuesday of last week. Several other young men were with Boinske at the time, but none of the others attempted to cross as the ice was rotten and the river quite high. He was the son of Mr. and Mrs. Mike Boinske of the town of Reseburg and his age was 19 years, 4 months and 26 days. The remains were found late Saturday afternoon last at a point about forty rods from where he disappeared under the ice. The funeral occurred on Monday from St. Hedwig's Church, Rev. Orlik officiating.
