Death of Milton Andrews

The Gazette
November 6, 1895

We are informed by Mr. John W. Loper of a horrible accident that occurred on his farm last Tuesday. Milton Andrews, the sixteen year old son of Mrs. Helen Carroll, while driving his team to Mr. Loper’s gin the mules became frightened and started on a run. The young man was thrown off of the wagon between the mules. His leg was hanging down below the double-tree when the wagon passed over a high stump. The stump struck the leg of the young man completely disjointing the leg at the knee and tearing the leg entirely off below the knee. Drs. Thompson, of Marion, and Tarkington, of Oakland, were summoned immediately to the sufferers and his leg was dressed but he was so weakened by the loss of blood and the severe shock that he died Tuesday night, the 29th Oct.
