Charles Clark Meets Untimely End Late Yesterday
Charles Clark, an employee at the Pulaski Iron Company furnace, was found dead this morning about 7 o'clock on one of the landings leading to the top of the furnace, where he went yesterday about 5 o'clock to oil machinery. It is hoped to determine the exact cause of his death with a more careful examination of the body than it had been possible to make in time to get a report of the determination of the examining physician. Whether his death was due to natural causes, a fall or some other contributing agency is what is to be determined, if possible, by the examination. The deceased, accompanied by a man of the name of Fisher, went to the top of the furnace yesterday afternoon to do the necessary oiling. It is a rule of the company that two men make this trip as a matter of precaution, the oiler taking with him any one who may be available at the time. It was about 5 o'clock in the afternoon. Fisher says his instructions from Clark were to remain at a certain point until he heard him (Clark) call, Fisher said he heard his companion call and looked around for him, but not seeing him descending, believing he had also gone down. This, it seems, was the last known of Clark alive. Charles Duncan was mounting the same flight of steps this morning about 7 o'clock to look after some duties, and came upon the body on a landing covered with snow, evidencing the fact it had lain there all night. In view of the surrounding circumstances, the exact cause of his death has not been and may possible never be satisfactorily determined. There might have been one of several... (unreadable)... condition death resulted from a fracture, or death might have been instantaneous. It is this fact which it is hoped to fully determine. Mr Clark was a young man and had been employed at the furnace for some time. He is married, leaving a wife and several small children, their home being situated on the Alum Spring Road. He is apparently about 30 years of age and a son of William Clark, of the Allisonia section. He is a member of Pulaski Lodge of Odd Fellows, which will have charge of the funeral arrangements. The body was removed to the Seagle Brothers undertaking establishment to be prepared for burial.

PULASKI SOUTHWEST TIMES, Tues, Jan 22, 1918

Charles was younger than his obituary states but older than the stone shows. The stone is incorrect.
