      Newaygo Republican, 12 December 1901,
      Local News
      Mr. E. A. Fowler, who recently resided in Newaygo was fatally hurt in a railroad accident which occurred near Walkerton, Indiana, on Thursday last. The accident is said to have been caused by the engineer applying the air brakes and stopping the train so suddenly that Mr. Fowler, who was on top of a freight car, was thrown to the ground. His back was broken, his skull crushed, and one of his arms broken in three places, and in spite of his injuries he lived until Friday. He died in a hospital in Chicago, where he was taken by the brotherhood of brakemen. His body was expected to arrive here on Monday and the funeral was to have been held on Tuesday, but the remains did not arrive until Tuesday evening and the funeral was held Wednesday morning at the Congregational Church. Immediately on receipt of the news of the accident, Mrs. Peter Race and Edward Race, mother-in-law and brother-in-law, went to Chicago, to render all the help possible, but nothing could be done for the poor fellow who did not recover consciousness after he was hurt. Mrs. Fowler, who was in poor health, is prostrated with grief and could not be brought from Chicago to attend the funeral. Mr. Fowler had been braking on the road as a supply hand for a short time and had just been given a regular run and was making preparations to commence housekeeping at the end of his route, when the accident occurred.
