|Death: ||Sep., 1920|
(9 SEP 1920, Sayre Headlight, Sayre, Beckham Co, OK):
Claude (sic) Brown, the youngest of three brothers working the J. I.
Breckenridge farm near North Spring Creek was the victim of a peculiar
accident on Saturday evening, and one which cost him his life.
Roy and Claude Brown came to Sayre with two loads of baled hay, and about
6 o'clock that afternoon sold it to Archie Mullins, of the Ideal Cafe, the
hay to be delivered at Mr. Mullins' residence on Seventh street.
While unloading one wagon the team started up and Claud attempted to run
to their heads. In doing so he ran between the two wagons, being caught
between the corner of one hay rack and the side of that on the other
Physicians were immediately called, and the young man removed to Mr.
Mullin's home, but his death followed about an hour after the accident,
his breast being crushed, and he sustaining internal injuries which led
the physicians to hold no hope when they arrived.
Funeral and interment was at the Doxey-Sayre cemetery on Sunday afternoon,
Rev. Z. E. Twitty conducting the services.
The young man was about 20 years of age, unmarried, and making his home
with his brother on the Breckenridge farm.
He was highly esteemed by all who knew him, and his sudden death has cast
a gloom over the entire neighborhood where he lived.
(9 Sep 1920, The Sayre Standard, Sayre, Beckham Co, OK):
Last Saturday evening Ernest (sic) Brown and his older brother Ray Brown
were delivering some hay to Archie Mullins in this city. The men drove
their wagons into the alley from opposite ends of the block and stopped at
the barn. They had pitched the hay off one of the wagons and were
preparing to unload the other when Ernest, the younger brother, started to
walk between the two wagons to start the team. Both teams started at once
and the boy was crushed between the two hay frames. His chest was caved
in and his spinal cord was injured in such a way a (sic) to cause his
death in a very short while. Attempts were made to save him by several
physicians but to no avail. He died within an hour after the accident.
The Brown brothers lived on the E. B. Dugger farm north of Doxey and have
been in this section for a number of years. Ernest was the youngest of
four brothers. He was 19 years old.
The body was taken to the Jno. R. Lane undertaking establishment and
prepared for burial and was buried on Sunday afternoon at the Sayre-Doxey
Everyone who knew the young man spoke well of him. He was industrious and
of a very quiet disposition. His parents have been dead for several
years. He has three brothers and one sister to mourn his loss.
The accident was a very sad one and everyone sympathises with the
relatives in the grief caused by his untimely death.
