Elkader Register, Thur., 15 Dec. 1904. North McGregor column.

Homer J. York was born Oct. 22nd, 1853, and died Dec. 7th, 1904. Last Wednesday afternoon, Dec. 7th, as Homer J. and J. M. York were driving through their pasture on their return from town, the team became frightened by the mules which were running at large and ran away down a steep hill. The wagon struck a large rock beside the road where it was broken in pieces and the lines breaking the men were thrown out, J. M. sustaining slight injuries, while Homer was thrown a distance of twenty-five feet into a ditch dying instantly. His jaw, neck, back and left leg were broken, and there were three large gashes on the head. The funeral services were held at the residence, Rev. Hall conducting the services. Interment was in Oakland cemetery, McGregor. Miss Bell and J. M. York, of this place, and Capt. Wm. York, of Fulton, Ill., are all that is left of a once large family.
