John was Ho-Chunk.




John was born about 1869. He was the son of Louis Londrosh and Mary St. Cyr.


Like some of his siblings, he was a student at Carlisle Indian School.


He passed away in 1888 while attending the Carlisle Indian School. The school newspaper gave his obituary: "John Londrosh, but a week ago apparently strong and vigorous in health now lies dead. He went to the hospital last Thursday with symptoms of Typhoid fever. The disease went to his brain causing congestion and death. On Monday at one o’clock he passed away. John was a beloved pupil of our school. His quiet manly bearing and loving heart en­deared him to all who knew him. The memorial services held in the Chapel, the Rev. Dr. Norcross officiating, were touch­ing and beautiful. Floral offerings from our Y. M. C. A., of which John was a member, others from the girls’ quarters and some from the teachers and officers completely covered the casket con­taining the remains. The students of the school contributed to­wards sending the body to his home at Win­nebago Agency, Nebraska. Cecelia, his sister, was on her way to the school before the telegram of the sad news reached the Agency. Her grief on finding that her brother is no more was peculiarly hard, and she has the sincere sympathy of her school mates and friends. To the fond and grieved mother at home, and to the sorrowing sister and brothers, we as a school extend a warm hand of sympathy and love."
