Brooklyn Standard Union 1918 July 23 LITTLE HORSEMAN KILLED
Sayville, July 23-- Gordon F. WESTIN, 8 yyears old, son of G.F. WESTIN of 635 Park avenue, Manhattan, now in France with the 107th Ammunition Train of the Twenty-seventh Division, was killed yesterday afternoon when he was
thrown from a horse. The horse stumbled and fell at Main street and Lincoln avenue, huring the little fellow from his back, one foot sticking in the stirrup. The horse
leaped up and started down the street, before he could be stopped, dragging the boy whose head bumped along the asphalt roadway. As the horse turned up Railroad avenue the boys head came in contact with an automobile stalled there and was killed by the blow. I am not related & have no other info.
