Supposed Suicide Proves an Accident.
Sometime ago a farmer named Tackman, living at Bristow, was found dead in his barn under conditions that suggested suicide. It passed as such, though no inquest was held, until a question of insurance money caused a critical examination to be made. The man’s demeanor, his physical condition and financial circumstances all suggested everything but suicide, and the latest conclusion is that death resulted from an accident in which the man’s head was caught in a piece of harness that strangled him to death.
**Henry Tackman died 24 Oct 1903 per Iowa Death and Burials. Born about 1858 in Germany, born 1857 per cemetery records, wife Sophie Schroeder, married in Germany, arrived 1888 with wife and family.
