ORNBAUM, Ben -- Source: Crawfordsville Daily Journal Tuesday, 11 October 1892--  Last evening Ben Ornbaum met with a most painful and peculiar accident at Darter’s elevator. He started to drive his team in and was standing up in the wagon. It chanced that the beams were rather low and as the team entered somewhat rapidly Mr. Ornbaum did not notice the fact until appraised of it by his head striking against a timber. The blow was a grazing one and naturally tore the scalp loose throwing it back over his head. Mr. Ornbaun was stunned by the accident and was at once taken to Dr. Jones’ office where the wound was dressed and the scalp sewed on. Mr. Ornbaun was then taken to his home on East College Street and was at last accounts resting as easily as could be expected under the circumstances. His wound is a most painful one and it will be some time before he fully recovers from the effects of it.
