Graham, Mayhew (Serious injury - 3 Aug 1912) 

A horrible accident happened on the A. Reuth farm in Heathville Saturday afternoon.  Jim Tremmelling, the manager of the farm, was busy haying that day and employed the services of Mayhew Graham, a neighbor’s boy, about ten years old, to help unload.  The boy’s duties were to attend to the rope leading to the hay fork to which were hitched a team of powerful horses.  In some way the boy’s right foot became tangled up in the rope in such a way that he was unable to free himself from it before the team started to lift another fork of hay, and before anyone realized what had happened the rope was drawn so tightly around the boy’s leg as to practically cut the same off just above the ankle.  Dr. Housley of Chili and Dr. Ross of this place were hastily summoned to attend the injured boy.  They found it necessary, however, to take him to the Marshfield hospital where every effort is being made to save the foot.  Granton News
