Margheim Killed in Wreck Near Milberger
Death Almost Instantaneous From Triple Fracture at Back of Brain
Wife and Five Children Not Injured
Alex Margheim, of the Milberger community was instantly killed Sunday morning about 10 o'clock from a triple fracture at the base of his brain, when his car crashed into the Hudson sedan of Willie Karst just as the latter was driving away from the filing station in front of the Milberger store.
Margheim, his wife and five children, were on their way to Great Bend, going south on the highway and did not see the Karst car which was pulling away from the filling station headed west. The Margheim car, which was an Apperson roadster, was complely wrecked and the front of the Karst car was damaged considerably. Except for a few bruises sustained by the Margheim children no one else was injured. Karst was traveling alone.
Margheim is a brother of Fred Margheim of this city. He also has another brother living in Galatia. Funeral services will be held in Milberger Wednesday morning.

Death Record for Milberger Lutheran Church (transcribed by Janet Flickenger) has an entry read: Alexander Margheim died January 2, 1927, age 34 years 1 month and 20 days from an "Auto Accident".
