|Notes for James Henry Trask|
|He is listed just as Henry in the 1880 census. Died in the south while in military service32. However, a check with the National Archives found no record of his having served in the Army. |
It is possible that he served in a Minnesota volunteer unit during the Spanish-American War.
Nicollet Leader, 5 December 1908:
" The funeral of the late James Trask took place last Friday afternoon at the Kerns church, Rev. Bacon officiating. His brother Guy arrived in Mankato with the remains on Thursday from Dallas, Texas. James was 29 years old and unmarried. The Kerns band of which he was a member attended the funeral in a uniformed body out of respect for their late comrade. The deceased was a member of the Kerns church and always took an interest in its work. He was a very exemplary young man." 33
His headstone reads "James H. Trask" (no dates).
