Child Wilson

Greenville, TX--February 11, 1896--Word was received of a fatal accident yesterday, February 10, 1896, at the home of Mr. Pickney Wilson, six miles north of the city. Mrs. Wilson went out to feed a pet horse, taking her little child with her in a little wagon. She left it near the horse while she went for some feed, and on coming back, found that in some way, the horse had become restless and kicked the wagon over, breaking the child's skull. The child died three or four hours after the accident.
