Sharon Herald 17 April 1916
Death trap gets another victim
James L. Clark of North Sharon is Fatally Hurt Near Hall Crossing

James L. Clark aged 54, a well known resident of North Sharon, met death at the Hall's crossing "death trap" Sunday morning, when he was run down by a Pennsy freight and had both legs and his right arm taken off. He died Sunday morning at Buhl hospital.
Clark was on his way home after spending Saturday night with his daughter in Youngstown. He returned home on the midnight train. He was going to the home of his son, James Clark, and while passing over the crossing he was run down. It was some time before he was discovered. He was then carried to the Hall Furnace office and removed in Sample's ambulance to Buhl Hospital, where he died at 9 o'clock, Sunday morning.
Mr Clark was a son of the late Adam Clark and was born in this state. He had resided in Sharon for the last 35 years. Surviving are the following sons and daughters: James, Henry, William, Joseph, and Thomas Clark, Mrs James Jones and Mary Clark of this city and Mrs Mutchie of Youngstown, O.
Funeral services will be held Tuesday afternoon at 2 o'clock at the residence. Interment will be made in Byerly's Cemetery

From my own knowledge:
The Obit has the children names wrong the children should be James, William Henry, Edward Joseph, Thomas, Ira Walker, Mary Clark, Maude Jones, Emmaline Mutchie and Karl R Clark Schell and desceased daughter Maude Louella Clark Jones
