One Instantly Killed

Information was received Saturday by Mr. Jno. Cook, of St. John’s, to the effect that Mrs. Wingard, and her daughter Miss Custis, were violently thrown from a buggy, last Saturday, by a runaway horse.

Mrs. Wingard was instantly killed, while her daughter was painfully bruised and remained unconscious for several days. Many parties in Eastern cabarrus know these people. Miss Curtis [sic] Wingard is a graduate of Mont Amoena Seminary and a sister of Mr. Cook’s son-in-law.
