Friendly Wrestling Bout Results In Death Of Man

Abdominal Injury Fatal To Lewis K. Caslow, Of Neiman; Wife Died In February.

Neiman, May 4 Injuries suffered about a week ago, while he was engaging in a friendly wrestling bout with his foster son, caused the death of Lewis K. Caslow, of this place at 8:48 o'clock tonight at the West Side sanitarium, York. Mr. Caslow had been a patient at the York institution since last Wednesday. Death was due to the effects of a rupture of the intestine.
Caslow was engaged in a game of horseshoes with his foster son, George Kaltreider, and two companions last week, and during the game became engaged in a friendly tussle with the youth, whom he had raised since childhood. Mr. Caslow is said to have been suffering from a hernia, and the wrestling bout aggravated the injury and caused the rupture of the intestines. Dr. W. D. Danner, Spring Grove, was called shortly after the accident occurred and later advised the removal of the man to the hospital.
Mr. Caslow, who was aged 55 years, five months and 24 days, is survived by one daughter, Mrs. Gilbert S. Reever, with whom he made his home; his foster son, George Kaltreider, at home; his father, Jacob T. Caslow, Glen Rock R.D. 3; and the following brothers and sisters: Mrs. William Miller, Brodbeck; Mrs. Adam Glatfelter, this place; Samuel K. Caslow, York; Jacob K. Caslow, John P. Caslow, Glen Rock R.D. 3; and Mrs. W. J. Manchey, Red Lion.
Mr. Caslow was a retired farmer. He had lived in or near this vicinity for his entire life. His body was removed from the York institution this evening for preparation for burial by G. W. Geiple and Son, Glen Rock funeral directors. Arrangements for the funeral have not yet been completed.
Mr. Caslow's death was the second to occur in the family in a few months. On February 23, his wife, Mrs. Sarah Ellen Glatfelter Caslow, succumbed to a complication of diseases.


Neiman, May 7 Many relatives and friends today attended the funeral of Lewis K. Caslow, who died at the West Side sanitarium, York, on Monday evening, from an injury, said to have been received in a friendly wrestling bout. After brief services at 9:30 a.m., at the home of his son-in-law and daughter, Mr. and Mrs. Gilbert Reever, concluding services were held in Stone church, near Glenville. Interment took place in the adjoining cemetery. Rev. Paul D. Yoder, pastor of the Jefferson Reformed charge, officiated, being assisted by Rev. W. H. Ehrhart, pastor of the Jefferson Lutheran charge. The pallbearers were: Paul Glatfelter, Wilmer Glatfelter, Andrew Miller, Curtis Miller, Roy Caslow and Edward Caslow.

Lewis K. Caslow was born November 10, 1875 and died in the West Side Sanatorium, York, Pa., May 4, 1931, aged 55 years, 5 months and 24 days.
Mr. Caslow came to his untimely end because of a strange accident that he suffered only a few days before his death. He was a well-known and respected citizen of the Shaffer's Church neighborhood for many years, and his neighborly qualities and willingness to help any one whom he could help made him many friends. He was a faithful member and regular attendant of St. Jacob's (Stone) Church all his life.
The funeral services were held from his late home at Neiman's, Pa., on Thursday morning, May 7, 1931, with brief services at the house, and at the Stone Church where burial was made. Rev. W. H. Ehrhart assisted at the church. A large congregation of friends and relatives attended the services. The funeral text was Rev. 22:20.
