DIES FROM GOLD
8odyof Milo Godfrey Found 90
Feet Away From the
HAD WON IN BATTLE WITH ICE
But Collapses Under Exposure After
Reaching Shore The
Di sco very.
Lying about one thousand feet below
where the bodies of his two compan
ions were found, and 90 feet back from
the shore ujn a bank six feet above
the water, without boots or coat, yes
terday was found the frozen body
of Milo Godfrey, one of the trio who
perished in the Mississippi just above
Muscatine last Saturday afternoon
There seems to be no doubt that Milo
Godfrey died of exposure after a L;it
tie for life that thrills all who have
heard of the circumstances. Those
who were with Godfrey when their
boat was overturned by the floating
ice were his son. Seth T. Godfrey, and
G rover Eis.
The river had been dragged con
tinuously for the missing bodies.
The searchers were a determined lot
and never flagged in their efforts.
Bert Godfrey, the son. would not hear
to abandoning the search, and with
his encouraging words, kept the work
going forward. Boats were cut to
pieces by the ice and the character of
the work was wearing on mind and
body. The bottom of the river had
been harrowed over many times and
the Island shore searched very thor
oughly for some distance.
A runoiue Dlneovrrj".
A consultation of the searchers was
held, and it was decided to make one
more thorough drag close to the island
shore. A long rope reaching half way
across the chute was being used. War
ren Fowler, who was on the island
shore, had one end and several men in
the boat the other. They were drag
ging over the shallow bar, a short
distance below the place where the
other two bodies .were found. A slack
ening of the line caused those in the
boat to look shoreward, and they saw
Fowler going rapidly into the brush
which lined the shore. Intuitively
they divined what it was and the rext
moment Fowler came down to the
shore and beckoned them across.
Ilrwrrlptlon of the Itudy.
Not a word passed among the men.
Fowler led the way, the men following.
Back 30 paces from the shore lay
he cold and stiffened body of Milo
Godfrey.- its appearance being as nat
ural as life. His face was calm and
he looked a3 if asleep. His felt boots
were both off, his overcoat gone and
he had drawn off one glove, the uncov
ered hand being clenched tightlv and
raised above the body. Tenderly the
remains were conveyed to the Iowa
shore and later taken to Muscatine,
where they were prepared for burial.
Ilrat Snlmmrr of Tbrr.
Theories regarding the manner in
which Milo Godfrey met death are
many. The most commonly accepted
one is that the man. who was the best
swimmer of the trio, assisted his son
Seth as long as he was able. He had
much knowledge of the river and had
often been heard to say that if erne
wp.s thrown into the water the first
thing to do was to get rid of as innch
clothing as possible. Acting upon this
plan, he divest eel himself of his over
coat and possibly kicked off the heavy.
felt boots which he wore. He must
have witnessed the drowning of his
son Seth and may have been an eye
witness to the struggles of G rover Eis
as he tried te reach the Iowa shore.
Float a With the Ir.
Circumstances would warrant the
belief that the man. now too chilled
to actually use bis limbs in water,
drifted among the heavy floes, possi
bly aided some by clinging to the ice
as It moved slowly down stream.
When the large bar had been reached,
his feet struck the bottom, and dazed
and almost dead, he floundered to the
shore not many feet away. Here he
climbed a shelving bank six feet
above the water and. reaching the
level ground, was either unable to
know where he was going or perhaps
he intended going across the narrow
Island to the cottage of Norman But
ler. He had gone about 90 feet and
fell exhausted, dying without the mov
ing of a muscle. The discovery that
his overcoat and boots were gone puz
zled those about him for some time,
until Bert Godfrey spoke of the advice
which his lather had always given re
garding what to do when in danger
in the water.
