KILLED BY AN AUTO
MRS. ANNA MCCORMICK MEETS
DEATH IN TOLEDO, O.
LIVES TWO HOURS-BURIAL BESIDE
HUSBAND IN GLADWIN
The body of Mrs. Anna McCormick was brought to Gladwin for burial Saturday from Toledo, Ohio, her late place of residence. Her death was the result of being run over by an automobile on a street of Toledo, at about 7 o'clock p.m., Friday, Nov. 17. It is claimed that the driver responsible for the accident kept on his way, and that another auto and party therein picked her up and took her to her residence at 731 St. Erie street. Although she sustained fracture of ribs and was badly bruised about the face, she retained consciousness to the last, about two hours after the accident. She gave the people who took her home the name and residence of her son Peter, in Cleveland, and he was reached by wire while attending to his duties at one of the schools. Without delay he started for Toledo, the driver making the journey at high speed, but death took place a half hour before the scene was reached.
Mrs. McCormick was 67 years of age at her death and was a native of Canada. She was married to John McCormick at Durham, Ont., Nov. 8, 1873, and they came to Gladwin county in 1876, settling on a new piece of land in Gladwin township, where they made a good farm. Afterward they went to the upper peninsula during the days of homesteading in Ontonagon county. Mr. McCormick filled many official posistions in Gladwin county, including sheriff. Mr. and Mrs. McCormick were always ready to reach a helping hand to all, and their hospitality and kind deeds won a large circle of staunch friends. To them one son was born, Peter F., now a resident of Cleveland, Ohio, and five grandchildren also survive her. A sister, Mrs. R. B. McMungle, preceded her in death.
Mr. McCormick, her husband, also met his death by accident in November, 1902, when he was short by a companion while hunting.
Funeral services of Mrs. McCormick were held at St. Paul's church, Sunday, at 2 p.m., conducted by Rev. Alfred Shaw. Interment took place beside her husband in Highland cemetery. Pallbearers were from among the old residents, being Jonathan Brown, T. J. Moore, Wellington Wagar, James Wagar, John Weir and Eugene Foster.
During her residence in Gladwin Mrs. McCormick was a member of the Presbyterian church, now withdrawn from Gladwin.
