The following unidentified newspaper article (ca. 1903/4) was found in a scrapbook owned by Betty Burton of Lowell:
Mr. Lawrence Bixenman died Tuesday morning, December 22, at the age of 40. He had been ill for a long time and death was not unexpected. He was quite well known, having conducted the "Steve Meyer saloon" of this place for several years past and was respected by all he knew. A wife and four children besides relatives and friends, remain to mourn his loss. He was interred in the Catholic Cemetery at Hanover Center. He was also a member of the I.O.F. and many thanks for their prompt attention.
