Zilk, Joseph Jr. (1902 - OCT 1916)
Joseph Zilk, aged 14 years and son of Mr. and Mrs. Joseph Zilk of 804 Western St., sustained injuries Monday while riding on his father's wagon which resulted in his death.
The boy was driving the wagon home, and while he was going north on St. Joseph's St. and turning the corner to West B. St. another lad tried to climb aboard. Zilk whipped up the horses, and as they started to run the wagon struck the new concrete curb. The boy was thrown under the wheels. The fall on the curbing fractured his skull, but the wagon passing over his chest inflicted the greatest injury, it is believed. He was removed to St. Joseph's Hospital with little delay, but died there at 3:15 o'clock the same afternoon.
Deceased was the youngest of nine children, and was a general favorite at St. Joseph's Catholic School.
The funeral will be held from St. John's Church tomorrow morning at 10 o'clock, Rev. Joseph F. Volz officiating.
