|Birth: ||Jul. 5, 1902|
|Death: ||Oct. 2, 1927|
Saturday evening about 6 o'clock Emil Krejdl, son of Mrs. Mary Krejdl, living a mile and a half north of Milligan, told his folks he intended going out to shoot some jack rabbits, and took his shotgun with such intention. Just as he stepped over the door sill, by some unexplained accident, the gun exploded, the charge taking effect beneath his chin, coursing upward and outward tearing his face wide open as far up as his eyes.
Dr. Smrta was called and hastened out to find Emil walking about the farmyard, bleeding and apparently unaware of what had happened. On being told, he walked without assistance into the house where first aid was rendered and on the advice of the consultant he was taken to St. Elizabeth's Hospital where he expired Sunday morning.
Emil had always been a quiet, industrious lad. He had an attack of a nervous nature some three or four months ago, when he was sent to Ingleside, but he was transferred later to a private hospital. He spent over a month in hospitals, whereupon he came home apparently well and contented. He had been in good humor all day Saturday doing his usual work, and chatting with the family so that the thought of suicide does not seem to apply. He leaves to mourn his death, his widowed mother, seven sisters and four brothers.
The body was brought to Milligan Sunday afternoon. Funeral services were held Tuesday afternoon at the family home, afterwhich the body was conveyed to the west cemetery for interment.
