1928 :: Death of Winifred Luckey


Rockdale, Milam Co., Texas, July 3. -- Winifred Luckey, 8, son of Mr. and Mrs. Homer Luckey, was killed late Tuesday afternoon when he was caught in a cave-in of a gravel pit near San Gabriel, several miles west of Rockdale. The child had gone with his father, who was doing some graveling, and while the truck was being loaded he was standing near the pit and became caught as the gravel suddenly gave way. He was taken to a Cameron hospital, but died before aid could be given. The body has been brought to Rockdale. Dallas Morning News, July 4, 1928
