and returning from south of O W
Masons orchard to get more water he
rode on his fathers engine Ho slipped
in some manner from the steps and two
empty dirt cars passed over his body
causing intornal injuries from which
he died just after he was carried to the
nearby home of his sister Mrs Jerome
Daniel Kinghorn was born near Box
Elder Neb September 13th 1885 and
was therefore nearly sixteen years of age
He has been here about two months
coming with his mother to join Mr
Kinghorn who came in May to run one
ot theN W engines
He was a boy of good disposition and
had many friends among his associates
He was a church member and a dutiful
son Besides his father and mother

death two brothers J R Kinghorn of
