Slover, William #2 (1873? - 3 OCT 1903)
Wm. Slover, a farmer of west Eaton, fell dead from his wheel Saturday at 1:30 p.m., while quietly pedaling southward, about half a mile south of the Globe P.O. He pitched to the center of the road, the wheel falling partly upon him, and he was found soon after by passers, with one hand tightly grasping a handle bar. Death was from apoplexy, instantaneous. He had ridden about nine miles, against a strong wind, covering the distance in about forty-five minutes. Undersheriff Dwyer with a jury held an inquest at Mike Prock’s barn, finding the facts substantially as related. The man was apparently about 30 years old, and leaves a wife and two daughters, a father and mother, two brothers and a sister to mourn his loss, besides innumerable friends. His remains were interred in the Globe Cemetery.
