Man Injured at Saw Mill


Herald of July 12, 1894

Daniel Greaser, 40, of Clover Creek was injured at Boyer’s saw mill near Marklesburg, Huntingdon County. According to reports, Greaser was using a file to work on a revolving wheel when the wheel burst, hurling the file into Greaser’s chest. The file penetrated the chest cavity above the lung, causing a 7-inch gash. Greaser was treated by a local physician, who gave the patient’s wife little hope of his recovery.

A bridge over the stream in McKees Gap was completed, allowing for dry passage from the East Freedom area to Roaring Spring.
