INDEPENDENCE - A.F. FREEHAFER, a resident of this place and a most worthy young man and well-known school teacher, but who for the past year has been living at Fort Wayne, Indiana and been employed of the P.F.W. & C.R.R. Company met with a sad accident last Saturday by being squeezed to death between the bumpers while making a coupling on a sharp curve at Upper Sandusky.

The remains were sent here for the interment on Sunday and the funeral took place from the father's resident Monday.The service was preached by Rev. J.O. Stull, assisted by Rev. E.J. Gray. The burial took place at Four Corners Cemetery. A very large concourse of relatives and friends were in attendance at the funeral.
