The Standard Newspaper Ogden Utah, November 1 1890
As telegraphed you yesterday little Joseph Groesbeck was killed in the Seventeenth ward. From additional particulars gleaned to-day it appears that in the neighborhood of the corner of First North and West Temple are a number of small childrn who play together each evening, going out to meet and ride in the yard with one William Burbidge, a teamster, living near the Groesbeck residence. On returning from work last evening, he was met by the children as usual, who climbed into the wagon and rode into the yard. Mr Burbidge proceeded to unhitch his team and had undone three traces, when for some unknown reason, the horses suddenly started into a run, with the little fellow on the wagon. THe sudden start threw him from the vehicle beneath the wheels where his head was crushed. He was picked up immediately but was dead. Public sentiment exonerates the young man who was driving the team. The child had ridden with him many times, and was fondly attached to him. Heretofore the child had always been lifted from the wagon as soon as the team stopped, but last night was an exception to the rule, and with the result mentioned. His father is on a mission to New Zealand and his mother arrived from Logan this morning.
