Relatives of Oshkosh People Killed

A cousin of E.A. Bauter Meets Death at New Richmond -- Others Missing

E.A. Bauter, in the Fox river improvement office, lost a cousin in the terrible tornado at New Richmond, Wis. In the list of those who were killed and whose identity is known appears the name Dwight Porter. That is the name of Mr. Rauter's cousin, and as he was the only Porter residing in the town at the time of its destruction, there is little or no chance for a mistake. Mr. Bauter has received no word as yet from the family of the deceased. Mr. Porter was a young man, not over thirty years of age, and was married but a few years ago. He was a farmer by occupation.

The name of O'Connell among the known dead has caused some anxiety to John O'Connell, city lineman of the fire department, as he has a brother located somewhere in that section of the country. The name given in the lists, however, is Henry, while Mr. O'Connell's brother is Frank O'Connell. It is now thought that the dead man is not the brother of the Oshkosh man, as it is likely word would have reached here by this time.

Dr. Provost had a relative by the name of Dr. Wade killed at New Richmond.
