Frances L. Rockwell & Colie J. Beach
OBITUARY: Victor Rockwell, eldest son of Mr. and Mrs. C. J. BEACH, was instantly killed at 9 o'clock last Thursday morning by being run over by a hay press while on his way to the Powers school a mile east of this boro. He had ridden from home to within a few rods of the school house when hearing the last bell he tried to get off or fell and was caught beneath one of the heavily loaded rear runners which passed over his body just above the hips. He was immediately carried to the school house and his parents and a physician summoned, but death had apparently been instantaneous from the crushing of the spinal column. No blame attaches to anyone for the sad accident. He was a bright promising boy, eight years old, and a favorite with his playmates and all who knew him. Intelligence of the accident was received in this boro with utmost sorrow and unstinted expressions of sympathy for the bereaved parents. Funeral services were held on Saturday at 1 o'clock from the house, the Rev. E. J. Rosengrant officiating, assisted by the Rev. L. M. Gates. The late schoolmates of the departed attended the obsequies in a body. Numerous floral offerings bespoke the loving sympathy of mourning friends. The burial was in Oakwood cemetery.
