William Clark, Teamster For Coal Company, Succumbed to Attack of Heart Failure

William Clark, aged 45 years, teamster for Daniel Forbes, expired suddenly yesterday afternoon (Feb. 8, 1906) while engaged in delivering coal at the residence of Mrs. Annie Simpson in Eighteenth street. Shortly before 4 o’clock he left the coal yards and drove to the residence of Mrs. Simpson.

Mrs. Simpson who was watching him noticed him stoop over as if in pain and went out to speak to him. She received no answer and then went to the house and called some men who investigated.

When they reached him he was dead. Heart disease was the cause. Mr. Calrk had complained fro several days of not feeling well and his mother tried to persuade him to rest, but he continued at his work.

The deceased was single and is survived by his mother, five sisters, Mrs. William Morgan, Mrs. Nathan Henthorn, Mrs. Elizabeth Minor, Mrs. William Kirkbride and Miss Pearl, all living in Wellsville; and two brothers, Jesse, who lives in the south, and John at home.

Funeral services will be held at the home Sunday afternoon.
