Pontiac Man Killed When Thrown from Hay Load

Funeral services will be held at 9 o’clock tomorrow morning in St. Thomas Catholic church here for Edward E. Finnell, 71, of Pontiac R. F. D., who was instantly killed Saturday when he was thrown from a hay wagon at the farm of Charles Campfield near Pontiac.

Hay was being put into the Campfield barn when a guy wire on one of a number of poles of a block-and-tackle arrangement broke, allowing a pole to fall on one of the horses. The team pulling Finnell’s wagon bolted and he was thrown to the ground. His neck was broken. Mr. Finnell worked and made his home at the Campfield farm.

He was born April 1, 1862, in Logansport, Ind., the son of Thomas and Bridget Kelley Finnell. He was educated in Washtenaw county. He was married to Mary Doll.

He is survived by a brother, James W. Finnell of Ann Arbor; and three sisters, Mrs. George H. Fischer of Pontiac, and Ida and Agnes Finnell of Ann Arbor.

Rev. Allen J. Babcock will officiate at the funeral services and burial will take place in Mt. Olivet cemetery, Chelsea. The rosary will be recited at 8 o’clock tonight at the Staffan funeral home, where friends may call.
