"Geo. R. Dungan, aged twenty-seven years, who was killed in an automobile accident at Wymore on the afternoon of June 30, was buried in Prospect Hill cemetery on the morning of the Fourth, Rev. W. J. Turner officiating, The body was brought to Norfolk from the family home at Lincoln and was accompanied by a funeral party of eight people among whom was the fiance of the deceased to whom he was to have been married in a few days, and the young woman's father and mother. The young man formerly lived in Norfolk with his parents, Mr. and Mrs. Q. A. Dungan. A grandfather and brother and sister are buried in the family lot in Prospect Hill cemetery. The family made this their home seven or eight years ago, occupying a house on Thirteenth street. The father and son were both traveling men and in company with another traveling man owned an automobile in which they made short trips through their territory. The young man had taken his father and the other man to a train and was returning to Wymore. In crossing a bridge he attempted to avoid a bad hole and was compelled to make a short turn which threw him over an embankment six or seven feet high. He was found a short time afterward under the machine, dead. The sorrowing family have the sympathy of many old time friends in Norfolk over the bereavement."
