Buried in Lakeview Cemetery, Windom, Cottonwood County, Minnesota.
Son of Mr. and Mrs. Peder Borseth of Wmdom. Minn., enlisted in the U. S. Marines Dec. 3, 1916, in Co. H, 6th Reg. Marines, and was trained on the U. S. S. Rhode Island. On May 23, 1918, Corporal Borseth sailed for France. It was at this time that the Germans were making their terrific drive towards Paris, hoping to crush France before the Americans could get there. It was at the battle of Chateau-Thierry when the U. S. Marines (and Corp. Borseth was one of them) and the Dough boys went into the lines and stopped the German army, and started them back to dear Berlin. It was in this drive that Corporal Borseth was killed in action on July 19, 1918. He was the first boy from Cottonwood County to sacrifice his life on the battlefield in the Great World War. Corporal Borseth was born April 14, 1894.
