Tragedy in 1905 left many wounds for one family
I came across this tragic accident in the Monroe Evening Times of July 20, 1905. Remember as you read this that this incident took place on a farm south of the Staver Church, now known as Saint Peters United Methodist Church, which still operates just east of the intersection of what are now County Highways P and HK. Remember that in those days the farmer’s lawns might be a couple feet tall.
