THE WESTERN STAR, 17 January 1908
Obituary of EMIL SHULTZ

Emil Shultz, whose home was two miles southeast of Schrock, Woodward co., Okla., came to Coldwater on Wednesday and about 4 p.m. started on his return home with a wagon load of flour and other articles of
merchandise, mostly for the merchant at Schrock. The flour was a large box. About 4:30 p.m. he was found dead, at the small bridge one mile north of D. F. Parcel's place. D. W. Bridgwater, who was the first to
discover his body, reported the fact to some of the nearby neighbors. It was found that the wagon had ran off the bridge, overturning it and throwing the box upon, Mr. Schultz's body, causing his death in a short time. The team got loose from the wagon and were found not far away. Dr. F. L. Holcomb, the county coroner, was notified, but an inquest was not thought to be necessary. Burial was made today in the Coldwater cemetery. Deceased was about 26 years of age. He leaves a wife and one child.
