Linjohn, Carl (1850? - 4 AUG 1901)
Carl Linjohn, a deaf and dumb person, aged 51 years, was instantly killed last Sunday afternoon by passenger train No. 2, about one and one-half miles this side of Curtiss, Clark County. Carl was carrying a gun with him and was walking towards Abbotsford when No. 2 came along and struck him. The engineer blew the whistle several times to warn the man of his danger and supposed that he would leave the track. On the train came and as Carl did not get off the track, the engineer reversed the lever but could not stop the train until it had passed over him. His head was crushed and his neck and both legs were badly broken. The corpse was put on the train and taken to Abbotsford, where an inquest was held. Carl Cluve, his brother-in-law then took the remains home. He was buried Monday afternoon in the Lutheran Cemetery at Green Grove.
