Frederic Mathews

   Frederic Mathews was the victim of an accident which occurred at Flint Wednesday afternoon, July 21, 1920, at three o'clock, where he was working in the city water works. He and other men were digging trenches for the pipe when digging told them to run as the sides were caving in. He was part way out when it caught him.
   Frederic Mathews, son of Mr. and Mrs. Robert Mathews, was born Feb. 17, 1888, in Grout township. He served in the American Expeditionary Forces 18 months, was wounded in the left arm while in service, and had only been home a short time.
   The body was brought to Gladwin and taken to the home of his parents, in Hamilton township, where services were held Friday, conducted by Elder George W. Bailey, followed by interment in Highland cemetery. He is survived by his parents, two sisters, Mrs. Ethel Willis of Boyne City, Lila of Gladwin, and four brothers, Richard, Howard, Walter and Cecil, besides many other relatives, and a host of friends. The bearers were soldier boys.
