Paul Osborne Obituary

Ashland Clipper, July 31, 1913




Paul Osborne was killed last Thursday on the Ravenscraft ranch north of town and the body was laid to rest in the Ashland cemetery last Saturday.

It seems that he was plowing with a cultivator when his team became frightened and ran away, throwing Paul into a wire fence, after dragging him for probably a half mile.  The body was badly mutilated and disfigured, and while parties rushed to his aid, yet he never regained consciousness and passed away in a few minutes.  Dr. Taylor was called on the phone immediately and made a quick auto run, but he did not get to the side of the dying boy in time to be of service.

Deceased was the fourth son of Mr. and Mrs. Fred Osborne and was a good boy, quiet and inoffensive.  He was working for Siders & Steinbach at the time of the sad accident.

He was born in Protection, Kansas, December 22, 1894 and died July 24, 1913, age 19 years, 7 months and 2 days.

The bereaved family have the sympathy of the entire community.

Card of Thanks.

Mr. and Mrs. Fred Osborne and family.
