In February of 1919, Dan bought a cemetery plot at the Platte Township Cemetery. The “Spanish” flu pandemic spread worldwide in 19181919, killing an estimated 50 million people, including Dan’s sister Lottie. His wife had just lost her mom to a fire a few months ago. Was any of this weighing on Dan’s mind when he bought this plot, or was it simple planning ahead? The cost of the plot, by the way, was a whopping $2. This is the equivalent of $5.60 when Dan died in 1974, and $30 in 2019 dollars, so quite a bargain.

Daniel passed away in Platte, Benzie, MI, USA on Monday, February 18, 1974 at the age of 83.
