Woodson County, Kansas
August 29, 1929

S. H. KINDBLADE KILLED

S. H. KINDBLADE was fatally injured Monday morning when he was struck by a south bound Santa Fe freight train near his home a mile south of Toronto. The accident occurred at a grade crossing, as Mr. KINDBLADE was walking from his home to a field across the tracks and it is thought that as his hearing has been impaired for many years, he failed to hear the train bell and whistle. Although suffering several deep scalp wounds, a fractured hip, fractured left leg and the loss of two fingers from his left hand, he lived about twelve hours after the accident occurred. He never completely regained consciousness.

He is survived by his wife and four children: Mrs. Emily SHAFFER of Kansas City, Mo., Mrs. Fred BROWN of Stafford; Oscar KINDBLADE of Toronto [KS] and Fred KINDBLADE of Wichita.

Funeral services were held here Wednesday afternoon and interment was in the East Side cemetery.

These are excerpts from his obituary:

Samuel H. KINDBLADE was born October 19, 1844 [Caledonia, Ringgold County, Iowa], and died August 26, 1929. Age at the time of death - 82 years. In June 1874 he was united in marriage to Susan A. WALTER of [Caledonia] Ringgold county, near Caledonia, Iowa. To this union six children were born, four boys and two girls, two of whom preceded him in death a number of years now. In early life he devoted his life to teaching school. Later he was a carpenter and farmer. He had made his home in the vicinity of Toronto since 1884. Until his hearing was impaired he, with his wife, regularly attended the Christian church. Interment was in the Toronto [KS] cemetery.
