Thrown from Horse----Killed
Oscar J. Andrew died Saturday morning at two o'clock as a result of being thrown from his horse Friday afternoon. He, with his wife and children drove to the field with the team and wagon, where they discovered that the cattle were in the corn. Mr. Andrew returned to the house for his saddle horse, while his wife held the team. He returned, on a gallop, and they presume that he thought the gate was open, as he ran into it, throwing him about twenty-five feet on the other side. Although no post mortem was held it is understood that one side was crushed and several ribs broken.
Funeral services were held Monday at ten o'clock at the Spring Hill church.
He lived the first house north of North River, between Greenbush and Norwalk.
