Birth: Sep. 24, 1877
Death: Aug. 25, 1907
Cheyenne
Laramie County
Wyoming, USA

F.N. Clark, and employee of the Union Pacific in this city, died last night as the result of a fall from the company's ice house here.

Clark was one of a gang of men employed in icing refrigerator cars and was stationed near the chute from which the ice was ran to the cars. In some manner he lost his balance and fell from the chute which is a little higher than the top of the car, striking the ground on his head.

It is believed that some unusually hard substance on the ground caused his death, as the fracture to the victim's head is more severe than ordinarily would be expected in a fall of that distance.

Mr. Clark lived only about three hours after the accident. He is survived by his wife, who is recovering from a serious illness, and who is almost prostrated by the tragedy of her husband's death. She gave birth to a stillborn child about a week ago.

Wyoming Tribune no. 206 August 26, 1907, page 2
