Frank M. Slate Obit, newspaper not identified

Frank M. Slate, age 77 years, died almost instantly Tuesday morning shortly before noon, when he was run over by a runaway team of horses, as he sought to save from injury, his two grandchildren who were in the wagon drawn by the team. Mr. Slate lived with his son-in-law and daughter, Mr. and Mrs. Clifford Foster, on their farm in Tuttle Hill. He was working in the barn when his grandson, Clifton Foster, 17 drove the team and wagon into the barnyard. In the wagon with Clifton were two other grandchildren of Mr. Slate, Arlene Silvernail and Richard Slate both five years old. Clifton got down from the wagon to drive several cows into the pasture, the gate of which had been left open. While the youth was driving the cows, the horses started running. Mr Slate heard the noise and rushed out of the barn to grab the bridles as the team ran past. He clung to the bridles for about 15 feet, and then fell under the hoofs of the horses. In the mean time Clifton had caught onto the back of the wagon and succeeded in stopping the team in a short distance. Dr. W. A. Moulton of Candor, one of the coroners of Tioga County, was called and he gave a verdict of accidental death. Mr. Slate, who was well known and respected farmer of Candor is survived by eight children and a number of grandchildren. His four daughters are Mrs. Foster, Mrs. Irvin Hager, Mrs. Mary Silvernail, and Mrs. Hobart Dean, all of Candor. The four sons are Earl and Harley Slate both of Candor, William Slate of Brooktondale and Frank Slate of Owego. Funeral services will be conducted Friday, Oct. 18, at 1:30 from the Baptist Church in this village. Burial will be in Maple Grove.
