Last week William H. McKINSEY of this place went to  Harrodsburg, a small place in Monroe County on the Monon where he  had secured work as a teamster. On Friday, the second day he was  there, while hauling a load of logs, one of the wheels of the  wagon gave way. In jumping off, he caught his foot in the boom  pole and was thrown heavily to the ground, alighting on his head  and shoulders. Paralysis resulted but he lingered on til SUnday  when he died. The body was brought here on Monday and interred at  Old Union Cemetery, after funeral services at the home conducted  by Rev. WT Cuppy. Mr. McKinzie (sic) was 38 years of age and  leaves a wife and 8 children in very limited  circumstances. - typed by kbz
