He had started a gasoline engine in order to pump water for his stock when his trousers were caught by the belt and he was thrown onto the engine in such a manner as to crush his leg, resulting in the loss of much blood. He was taken to the office of Dr. F.P. Neis for first aid treatment and then by ambulance to Chippewa Falls, where the injured limb was amputated the same evening, death following as above stated.

Deceased was born at New Holstein, Wis., on Dec. 26, 1869, thus having reached the age of 63 years, 4 months and 2 days. He came to Thorp with his parents in 1888. On May 31, 1903 he was united in marriage with Miss Menerva Wright and then moved to a farm in the town of Reseburg where he has since resided.
