St. Ignance (Mich.) Item Number
Monday morning Toussaint Sharkey was run over by the cars at St. Ignace and killed. August, as he was called by the railroad men, was a brakeman on the freight train, and when he made his run down from Marquette Saturday his wife accompained him and spent Sunday at the Point. She was returning on the train which killed her husband. It is not known whether his foot slipped or whether he had a fit and thus fell under the wheels, as he was subject to fits. He was killed instantly. Sharkey was about 40 years of age and resided on Rock street in this city."" ""
