Gladwin County Obituary/Death Notice
Daniel Parker

   A horrible accident occurred at East Saginaw on Wednesday evening of last week. Workmen at Johnston's lime kiln in that place observed that the lime stone had clogged in the kiln, near the top, and would not settle toward the bottom, as that portion near the "hauling out" gate was removed. Thereupon four men went up to work the mass down. It all settled suddenly and took with it one of the men, named Daniel Parker, whose feet got wedged in with the limestone, and he was drawn down into the center of the fire and literally roasted to death. The poor fellow leaves a wife and three small children.
