|Death: ||May 29, 1899|
Emanuel Broad Jr. was the son of Emanuel Broad and Alice Nichols/Nicholls.
He was born in 1863 at Clifton, Keweenaw, Michigan. Emanuel was married to Helena ("Lena") E. Wise Emanuel on Oct. 20, 1884 at Superior, Douglas, Wisconsin.
They had one child, Pansy Violet Broad.
Emanuel died before his time in an accident. Here are some quoted passages found in the Seattle Daily Times, around May 29, 1899.
"Passenger train No. 5 of the Northern Pacific crashed into a Grant Street car a
few feet north of the Washington Iron Works about 7 o'clock this morning,
knocking about fourteen passengers of the car into the bay. One of the
passengers, a painter living in South Seattle, whose name has not yet been
learned, was fatally injured, and died on his way to the hospital ..."
"Emanuel Broad, the only one to be killed, was thrown into the water through one
of the windows and in some way not known became terribly crushed. His legs, from
a little below the hips to his feet, were mangled and smashed, and the upper
part of his body was also more or less bruised. He rose from his plunge near a
pile, and pluckily clung there until he was lifed out and put into the patrol
wagon. He died on his way to the hospital. His body is now at Bonney &
"Emanuel Broad who met death in the accident, was 32  years old. He came to
Seattle in November, 1897, and was living with his wife and child at the home of
Mrs. Jacob Peters, his wife's sister, on Denny street. His child is a daughter
12 years old, and was just celebrating her birthday yesterday when she learned
of her father's tragic end. Broad was a member of the Odd Fellows, and was
generally recognized as an industrious and kind man."
