Heagle, Edward (29 SEP 1884 - 21 JUN 1912)

Edward Heagle, son of John Heagle of this village (Thorp, Clark County, Wis.) employed in the Gilman Manufacturing Company's heading plant at Gilman, met with a shocking accident on Thursday afternoon last. While members of the crew were lacing a belt, Mr. Heagle was on a ladder keeping the belt clear from the revolving shaft overhead, and his sleeves caught in some manner, winding both arms around the shaft and separating both arms from the body, which fell to the floor beneath. He was taken to the hospital at Eau Claire the same evening, but died there about ten o'clock Friday morning. The body was brought here on Saturday and the funeral took place on Sunday afternoon from the M. E. Church, Rev. Kneen officiating, interment taking place in the Thorp Village Cemetery. Mr. Heagle was born at Seymour, Wis., on Sept. 29, 1884, and came here with his parents when an infant and spent nearly his whole life here. The stricken family has the sincere sympathy of all. The deceased was married several years ago but a separation took place about a year since.
