Stanek, Son of Joseph (1892 - 30 OCT 1907)
On Wednesday afternoon of last week the fifteen-year-old son of Joseph Stanek, who resides eight miles north of Thorp, Clark County, Wis., went hunting with a gun loaded with buckshot. In some manner the gun was discharged, the charge entering the abdomen and causing a frightful wound. The boy managed to drag himself a distance of eighty rods to a farm house, where help was secured, but of no avail, as he died about four hours after the accident, which occurred about three o'clock in the afternoon. The funeral took place from St. Hedwig's Church on Friday morning.
