Gored To Death By a Bull
An Upper Freehold Township Farmer Meets a Violent Death
Collen B. Miers of Cream Ridge, in Upper Freehold township, was gored to death by a bull a few days ago. The bull cornered Mr. Miers in the barnyard and
inflicted fatal injuries before his screams for help brought assistance.
Mr. Miers was 68 years old. He was the son of Thomas Miers and was born on the Miers homestead farm in Upper Freehold township, which has been in possession of the family for four generations. He was a member of the board of freeholders of Monmouth county for eleven years and for seven years was county auditor. He was superintendent of the Cream Ridge creamery, president of the First national bank of Highstown and of the Union transportation company, and was a trustee of the Upper Freehold Baptist church.
