GLAVES, John Thomas “Hooker” died June 16, 1899

A Terrible Accident

Last Friday afternoon at about 5 o'clock, Hooker Glaves, employed in the grist mill at Monticello, in shifting a belt from one pulley to another was caught on the shafting and was whirled around with the revolution of the shaft receiving injuries from which he survived only about an hour and never regaining consciousness.  When picked up from the floor it was thought that he was dead.  Aid was quickly summoned and on making an examination it was found that both legs and one arm was broken, his skull fractured and internal injuries sustained which could not but end fatally.  Mr. Glaves was 42 years of age, was born and raised in this county, being the oldest son of Jas. Glaves of near Lewistown.  He leaves a wife and seven children besides a large circle of relatives and friends to mourn his unfortunate death.  He was highly respected by all who knew him.
