aged 3 yrs. 2 mos. 17 days
s/o of J. M. & L. J. Artman
The Holton Recorder and Express, October 7, 1875:
Larkin, October 3, 1875 .... There was on the wagon with Mr.
Artman, and his son Stephan, a hired hand, and a little son, aged
about three and a half years, who was sitting on his father's lap. In
crossing the railroad, the horses took fright, and dashed off at a fearful speed, making a sharp curve, they threw off the hay and all on
it, except for little Bennie, who became entangled in the lines and
was dragged and dashed against the fore-wheel for a distance of about
two hundred yards, when the team was stopped by Mr. William Wells, and
poor little Bennie was found bruised, bleeding and dead ....
