1908 :: Gored to Death

The whole town was shocked on Wednesday of last week when the news was heralded over the city that Mrs. Pinkie Mitchell had been killed by a vicious cow. . . . Mrs. Rosa A. Mitchell, the deceased, was raised in Burleson county, but for the past nine years had made her home in Rockdale, where she was engaged in the restaurant business until a few years ago. . . . She is survived by a son, Mr. Will Mitchell, one of the best boys ever raised in any town. He is now night operator and ticket agent for the I. & G. N. road at Valley Junction, . . . The remains were carried to Fraimville last Friday where they were buried beside those of other members of her family. The Rockdale Reporter.
