Beacon - August 24, 1900

Chet R. Andrews, of Hillsdale, one of the oldest and most respected citizens of Mills County was killed by the Q train 2 miles east of Glenwood, Monday afternoon at the Reasoner crossing. He was driving a one-horse rig and was caught by the west bound passenger train #3. The engine struck the buggy almost squarely, cutting the horse free and throwing Mr. Andrews some 60 feet. He was taken to Glenwood and then removed to Dr. DeWitts residence, where he died at 5 o'clock about 2 years after being hurt. Mr. Andrews was nearly 53 years of age and was well known over all western Iowa on account of his being a marksman of no mean ability. He leaves a wife and 5 daughters. Funeral was held Tuesday afternoon from the residence of Dr. DeWitt, conducted by the Rev. Mr. Krell of Hillsdale. Interment was made in the Glenwood Cemetery.
