Bertille was up at the store this morning. We heard this morning when Mr. Hill telephoned into Belleville to the News Democrat office that Henry C. Voges died last night at 1:30 a.m. He was over heated from thrashing. He was helping August Voges to thrash and today he was to get them. Peter Dehn, Jr. also had a stroke frm over heated, he was out thrashing too. Henry C. Voges was 63 years old. Mrs. Hill is Aunt over him and August Voges is Uncle. That is where he got over heated. Mr. Steve Rennecker is at home today, so Papa went over a little while now. That isn’t so that Peter Dehn Jr. got a stroke. Old Man Dehn is pretty bad, he can’t move his legs nor his arms.
