Schultz, Daughter (4 Apr 1904 - 25 June 1909)

A fatal automobile accident occurred at Auburndale, Wisconsin, last Friday, when the little seven year old daughter of Wm. Schultz was run over and killed. Mr. Schultz and a neighbor were running a road grader near a bridge. His little boy and girl were playing around there when an auto party, consisting of S. E. Smith, Geo. Thompson, Arthur C. Wilson and Chauffeur P. E. Hemp came along on their way to Menasha from a trip through the northern part of the state. John I. Pankratz, of this city, was going with them from Hewitt to Auburndale, and states than when they came to the place, the road was rather rough, so they took one side, and were going along at a very slow speed. The boy was standing by the road, and the little girl was on the opposite side, concealed from the driver by the grader. As the car came up within a few feet of the grader, she darted out immediately in front of the car, and the driver being unable to stop, she was knocked down, the car passing over her head killing her instantly.

Every member of the party were shocked at the horror of the accident and did all they could for the bereaved family. They went to Marshfield to consult the district attorney and after a statement of the facts were exonerated.
