He died there in 1900.

Sr Laura in Browerville, c. 1915

This is pretty cool: Grandpa's sister Theresa became Sr Laura, OSB.  Here she is in one of her first teaching positions, in Browerville, Mn, with the 8th grade graduating class.  The boy in front on the right is her nephew Louis Gottwalt.  How did that happen?  His family lived in Rice, Mn. I'll have to ask Lynn, whom we have to THANK for this beautiful photo ☺!
