Genski, Herman (1921 - 22 NOV 1925)
Herman Genski, the four-year-old son of Mr. and Mrs. Henry Genski, residing four miles southwest of Withee, Clark County, Wis., was instantly killed at eleven o'clock Sunday morning, when he shot himself to death with a shot gun while playing with it in his home. The parents of the boy were both out of the house when the accident occurred, but it is stated by the other children of the family that the little fellow was dragging the gun about the house by the muzzle, and in some way the gun discharged, the entire load striking the lad in the side of the face, and death was instant. Funeral services were held Tuesday and the body was laid to rest in Riverside Cemetery.
