Birth: Dec. 1, 1854
Death: Apr. 11, 1908

Frankfort, Kansas, Index
Saturday, April 11, 1908

John W. Oswalt, Bigelow, Kansas
was instantly killed this morning
April 11, 1908 while throwing wood
away from a saw mill on the Jim
Wall's farm a mile south of Bigelow.

The large fly wheel which runs the
saw, broke and flew into pieces
and a large piece struck him in the
left side, breaking his shoulder and
knocking his brains out. He never
uttered a sound and death was
instantaneous. Four or five men
were working at the mill when the
accident happened about 8:30.

He was about 55 years of age and
has lived in Bigelow for twenty-
five years. He leaves a wife and
two children.

Funeral services were held on
April 12 at the Bigelow Methodist
Episcopal church at 10:00 a.m.
