HORRIBLE DEATH
Edgar Corbin Instantly Killed Beneath Wheels of Train

I am not going to type this newspaper story up unless a relative feels they would like to read all of it. It goes into depth of how the body was mangles beneath the train as the poor young man got off while the train was still going. Otis Ferree found the remains, the “little son of Ed Woodward saw the accident” Wm. Kernoodle and John Dinwiddle saw the young man get off the train.

“The unfortunate man was the son of Smith H. and Lucinda J. Corbin and was born in Danville, Ind. Dec. 17, 1869, and was thirty seven years of age lacking one day. He was the youngest child of the family of eight of whom three sisters together with the father survive him. He was a painter by trade by since his father went to California about six weeks ago he has been working at the cobbler’s trade at his father’s old stand. Funeral services were held at the home of his sister, Mrs. J.E. Gibson, Monday afternoon at 2 o’clock, conducted by Rev. W.H. Newlin. Burial at the I.O.O.F. cemetery.

If you want to request the whole article please leave a follow up posting and I will post it privately.
Note from Janet Price; I am posting this obituary for others. I am not related to the subject.
