Daily Review 6/9/1902
New York, June 9-Special to the Review)-
Arthur Booker died at Seney hospital yesterday afternoon. A brother of the jockey from Martinsville, Ind, was present when he died and took charge of the body. Booker was thrown memorial day at the Gravesand track. He was astride of the 2 year old colt Red Knight, when the youngster stumbled and the boy was thrown with great force on the ground. While prostrate another colt fell over him and his skull was fractured. He never regained consciousness from the moment he was injured to the time of his death, ten days ago.The brother from Martinsville, Ind, who is now in New York is Thomas Booker. He will make all the arrangements for the funeral and it is the opinion of the relatives in Decatur that the body will be brought to Moweaqua for burial as the parents are buried at that place.Arthur Booker is survived by nine brothers and four sisters. three brothers and two sisters reside in Decatur.
