MARKEY LARSON Larson Killed By Train Struck Near Francis Creek Retired Fire Captain on Way to Rural Home Markey Larson, 54, retired captain of the Manitowoc fire department, was killed instantly shortly before 5 o’clock Tuesday afternoon when the car in which he was enroute to his farm home on route 1, Whitelaw, was struck by a southbound North Western Road passenger train at a crossing a half-mile north of Francis Creek. Returning from his work at the Manitowoc Ship Building company where he was employed part time, Larson, the father of four young children, was north-bound alone on the town road when the eight-car train hit his auto directly in the middle and carried it a half-mile down the track before Engineer Conrad Carnot of 1225 South 14th street, this city, could bring it to a stop. According to the report of County Traffic Officers William Ladwig and Edward McConnell the 1930 model sedan was nothing more than a battered shell smashed against the front of the engine when the train finally could be stopped. The car motor was ground to bits and one of the wheels was found along the right-of-way about 145 feet east of the point of impact. Other parts of the car were scattered for a half-mile along the tracks. Inquest Feb. 18 Coroner Theodore Teitgen, who has called an inquest next Wednesday afternoon, Feb. 18, described Larson’s injuries as a compound skull fracture, two broken legs, a broken pelvis and left arm and crushed chest. The body had remained in the battered car and was resting on the fore part of the engine. The accident resulted in Manitowoc county’s second traffic fatality of 1948. The train, due in this city at 5 p.m. was held up for an hour and a quarter and did not arrive here until 6:25 p.m. The engine was reported to have been damaged slightly in the impact. Officer Ladwig said Engineer Carnot told him he heard a grinding noise under the engine as it crossed the road and applied the brakes immediately. Officers were unable to locate anyone who had actually seen the crash. Although the weather was clear at the time of the accident, a slight knoll along the highway and snow which had been plowed from the road for some (Continued on Page 2, Col. 5) LARSON KILLED BY C&NW TRAIN (Continued from Page 1) distance north of the crossing, may have prevented the driver from noticing the approaching train. Funeral Saturday The body was removed to the Urbanek and Schlei funeral home here where services will be held at 2 p.m. Saturday with the Rev. Paul Blaufuss officiating. Burial will be in Calvary cemetery with members of the Drews-Bleser post, American Legion, of which the deceased was a member, conducting military rites at the grave. Born in the town of Manitowoc Rapids in 1893, Mr. Larson lived there until September, 1917, when he entered the army. He served with the 50th. Spruce squadron at Vancouver Barracks, Washington, and was discharged in January, 1919. In March, 1919 he was appointed to the Manitowoc fire department, advancing to lieutenant, later to captain. He retired with that rank in June, 1945, after 26 years service. Later he was a foreman at the White House Milk company here and moved to the small farm north of Francis Creek about a year and a half ago. Twenty-five years ago in Chicago he married the former Margaret Wotruba of this city who survives him with four children, Orlis, 14, Clarence, 9, Thomas, 7, and Margaret Ann, 5, all at home; three brothers, Oscar, Louis and Hiram Larson, all of this city; three sisters, Mrs. George Denk and Mrs. Regina Anderson of Manitowoc, and Mrs. William Michel of Two Rivers.
