Killed By A Fall

A Former Eatontowner Killed Instantly at Brooklyn

Edward Little of Brooklyn, son of Mrs. Amelia Little of Eatontown, fell a distance of 35 feet while at work on a church at Brooklyn last Wednesday and was instantly killed. Mr. Little was a carpenter and was foreman of the men employed on the church. He was working on a scaffold when he fell. His skull was fractured and both arms were broken, the bones of the arms protruding through the flesh.

His mother at Eatontown is an aged woman and she was not told of his accident until Saturday, after all arrangements had been made for the funeral. Even then she was not told that he was dead and she went to Brooklyn on Monday not knowing that the fall had been fatal. The body was taken to the Shrewsbury Presbyterian church to-day, where the funeral was held. The burial was in the church graveyard.

Mr. Little was about 35 years old. He left Eatontown about fifteen years ago. He was a married man and leaves a widow.
