Deseret News, February 29, 1888

Fatal Accident at Kanab.

James L. Bunting wrote to the news under, date of February 14th. For some unexplained reason the letter did not reach this office until today. He says:
"About 9 o'clock this morning a little grandson of mine, by the name of Charles Melvin Ford, was instantly killed by a log rolling upon him and crushing his head. It appears that E.M. Ford, the father of the little boy, took his three children for a ride to the creek side, where a pile of green pine logs was deposited for the purpose of repairing our field dam. While the father was engaged with some other person, the little boy climbed upon the logs to pick gum and one of them rolled down upon him, resulting as stated. He was a very bright and promising child and would have been seven years old had he lived till the 6th of May next. The whole settlement condole with the parents and friends in their bereavement."
