Glossip, Gertrude 14 Feb 1909 - 13 Aug 1915 CCR 20 Aug 1915 p1

[Note: Daughter of T. L. “Thad” & Laura (Clark) Glossip]

Last Thursday evening shortly after the Republican was off the press, one of those shocking accidents that jar the nerves of a whole community occurred at the home of Thad Glossup, in the south west part of town, when little Gertrude Glossup, a six-year-old daughter of Mr. Glossup was run over by a wagon driven by the father with two tons of coal. The hind wheel passing up the left side of the body, cleaving pieces of flesh from the lower limb, crushing the side and head as it passed over the prostate form. As near as can be ascertained, Mr. Glossup, who was hauling coal for the mines, had driven home with the load to be that far on his trip the next morning, when the children climbed on the load when he stopped. When he started up again, he told them all to get off and thinking they had done so, started when the screams of an older daughter caused him to stop the team when it was found the little one had been run over and almost instantly killed as she gave only a few gasps after being picked up by her father, who was overcome with grief when he realized what had happened. Drs. Robertson and Bruton were called but no aid could be given. Funeral services were held Saturday, conducted by Rev., W. T. Holbert and the little unfortunate laid to rest in the city cemetery. The family have the sympathy of the community in their bereavement.
