Obituary of T. J. KNIGHT
Accidentally Killed at Kansas City

T. J. Knight, one of the best known residents of this city, was accidentally killed in the stock yards at
Kansas City, Monday afternoon. The manner of his death is not fully known at this writing, but it appears he
was in some way caught between one of the stock yard gates and a large, heavily loaded feed wagon, and so
badly crushed that he soon afterwards died in an ambulance on the way to the hospital. His body was shipped home Wednesday, arriving here in the forenoon at 11:40. The funeral occurred Thursday afternoon at 2:00, from the family residence, and the remains interred in the Larned cemetery beside those of his father.

“Tom” Knight, as he was familiarly known to nearly every resident of this city and county, was one of the
early settlers, and was well acquainted throughout Pawnee and adjoining counties. He had been in the stock business for the last six or eight years, and was a regular shipper of cattle, hogs and horses to the Kansas
City market. His tragic death is deeply mourned by a wife and seven children, and regretted by a large
circle of friends and acquaintances.
