Killed at Green Lake Lumber Mill

Local Man Lost Life Late Yesterday Afternoon.

Dolgeville, NY April 14, 1921- Charles (Henry) Boyer of this village who has been employed for some time past at the lumber mill of Julius Breckwoldt & Company at Green Lake, was instantly killed as the result of an accident which occured at the mill yesterday afternoon. Mr. Boyer was at work on an edging machine, upon which there are two saws, set about four inches apart. He had just put a board in the machine. When the board reached a point about a foot from the end, it suddenly snapped, causing a piece about a foot in length to bound back onto the saws. When the piece of wood re-bounded, it struck Mr. Boyer in the chest above the heart with such force as to cause his death. Workmen hurried to the place where he had fallen, but he had expired before they reached him.

Coroner Palmer of Gloversville, who was called, stated that death had probably been caused by a ruptured blood vessel. Undertaker E.W. Moore brought the remains today to the home of a daughter, Hazel Boyer, in this village, and the funeral arrangements will be made later.

The deceased was born in Stratford in 1864 and was the son of Charles and Mary Jane Brown Boyer. All of his life had been spent in this vicinity. He maintained a home in Stratford, but for the past eight years had been employed at the Breckwoldt plant in this village. Last winter he went to work in the Green Lake mill, of which Fred H. Croll, formerly of this village, is the superintendent.

Mr. Boyer was a man of upright character, well known and highly regarded for his amiable personal qualities and the news of his sudden death was a great shock to his many friends.

Surviving are four children, being Clarence Boyer of Rochester, Lyndon of Pennsylvania, Mrs. Clarence Daley (Lena Belle) of Utica and Hazel Boyer of this village; a brother, Frank of Stratford, and three sisters, Mrs. Charles Goodwin (Mary Elizabeth) and Mrs. Daniel Hawes (Eva Jane) and Mrs. Lena Beckhorn of Rochester.
