Fred Toney

Fred TONEY, the twelve-year-old son of John W. Toney of 
this city, was run over and instantly killed last Tuesday 
afternoon by an L.and N. switch engine. He was playing on 
the railroad tracts when the afternoon passenger went by, 
and after it had passed stepped onto the main tract with 
his face toward the departing train, when a switch engine, 
pushing a box car ahead of it, preventing the engineer from 
seeing the boy, run over him, completely severing his head 
and one arm from his body.
