McIntosh - Henry D.

Source: Logansport Daily Pharos - Monday 11 November 1895 p 1

Crawfordsville, Nov. 11 - Henry McIntosh, town clerk at Waveland, was in an apple tree picking apples, and in stepping about on the limbs missed his foothold and fell to the ground. In falling he struck another limb with such force as to break his neck. At about the same time Homer Dukes, a nephew of McIntosh, while standing on a fence knocking apples with a pole, fell to the ground and broke his neck also. Dukes lived near Colfax.
