Gary, William (1851? - 25 DEC 1874)
The annual list of casualties in the woods was commenced yesterday by the instantaneous death of William Gary of the town of Lynn, Clark County, Wis. He was engaged in unloading a logging sled at a landing in that town. Standing astride of the runner of the forward sled while rolling the last log off, its weight on the end of the beam suddenly canted the sled over with considerable force, throwing him off his balance and head first under the runner. The log clearing the sled, the ponderous runner came down with full force upon his head, completely crushing it, and killing him instantly.
Mr. Gary was a most estimable and promising young man, the son of John Gary of Lynn, single and aged about 23 years.
