Carl Winter, Norfolk Pioneer Dead

Carl Winter was one of the Wisconsin Colony to come to Norfolk in 1867. Mr. Winter was 85 years old and a native of Germany. He died Tuesday at the home of his daughter in Stanton. He came to America in 1865 and after a residence of two years in Wisconsin joined the colonists who took homesteads at Norfolk, Nebraska. Until the death of the aged wife, which occurred in January, this year, Mr. and Mrs. Winter were the only surviving couple of this band of sturdy pioneers.
