Killed Near Escanaba
James McTaggart of Sheboygan Crushed to Death by the Cars
James McTaggart, a member of the McTaggart family who reside at No. 312 N. Water street, in this city, and was employed as brakeman on a C. & N. W. ore train, was killed Thursday evening, May 24th while in the performance of his duty. The train on which McTaggart was employed was pulling into a small station near Escanaba and he was standing on the front platform of the caboose, when a sudden stop threw him to the track. He was evidently stunned by the fall and as the train slacked back the wheels of the first car ahead of the caboose ran over his body crushing out his life. The deceased was thirty-one years of age.
His brothers, John and Charles went to Escanaba last Friday and returned here Saturday evening with the body. The funeral was held at the Church of the Holy Name, Monday morning, the Rev. Father Thill officiating. Interment in the South Side Catholic cemetery.
