Son of Ed Clark, Iowa, during 1873

August 21, 1873 (Anamosa Eureka, 1st page, under “State Items”)

–The little four year old son of Mr. Ed. Clark, who lives three miles north of Postville, being in the hay field, and becoming sleepy, was laid, by his father, partially under a bunch of hay. During the absence of the father the hired man, coming to load the hay, and unaware of the presence of the boy, stuck one tine of the pitch-fork through his throat and the other in the sideof his neck. His recovery is doubtful.
