Albert Rorick

Died August 17, 1906, at his late residence in Oxford Mills, Jones county, Albert Rorick, aged 54 years and 1 month. He was born in New Harrison, Dark county, Ohio, July 17th, 1852, and came with his parents to Iowa, in 1858, settling in the vicinity of the Mills.

When about 20 years of age he went in company with some friends, to the then territory of Dakota where he spent at intervals about fifteen years of his life. For two years he was bookkeeper for a lumber firm in Minnesota and afterwards spent several years on a farm in Missouri, from which he returned to his parental home here remaining until his death, living most of his time in retirement. He was a lover of nature and out door life and being possessed of a kindly disposition his life was one of peace.
