In Years Past

In 1914, two serious woods accidents were reported in Sherman this day, one a fatality near Volusia where Clarence Oakes was almost instantly killed by a tree falling on him. The other was near Walt's Corners in which Clarence Casselman was very seriously injured by being hit by a falling tree. Oakes was the son of Mr. and Mrs. Reuben Oakes and lived on the old homestead about six miles from Sherman on the Westfield Road. He had occupied his farm for a little over a year, buying it from his father. He was about 29 years of ages and had been married about 9 or 10 years. He left a wife and two small daughters.
