Killed At A Funeral
Steele Scrapbook - July 7, 1885


BANGOR, Me., July 7.—While a funeral procession was crossing the track of the Maine Central RR, near East Newport station yesterday afternoon, a carriage containing Deacon Jacob Tuttle, aged eighty, and his wife, aged seventy-five, was struck by an engine and thrown into a ditch. Mrs. Tuttle was almost instantly killed and the carriage was demolished. The engineer blew his whistle and reversed his engine, but the aged couple, being quite deaf, did not hear, and the engineer could not stop in time to avoid a collision.
