Obits > 1897 - Ole Anderson


Tampico Tornado

May 8, 1897

A sad accident happened Tuesday noon at Prophetstown in which Ole Anderson, a section hand, lost his life. The section crew were riding upon freight train No. 37 and Anderson who was standing between two cattle cars, lost his footing and fell beneath the wheels. His body was mangled in a fearful manner.
