      The Carlisle News - Carlisle, Sullivan Co., IN. Friday March 10, 1939
      "LON MCKINLEY KILLED BY AUTO"
      "Fatally Injured in Carlisle Saturday Night. Dies soon after reaching Hospital. Verdict of Accidental Death Given. Funeral Tuesday".
      -Alonzo McKinley, well known Haddon Township retired farmer, was fatally injured at about 6:15 o'clock Saturday evening when he was struck by an automobile driven by Ocie Black of this city, the accident occuring on Highway 41, in front of the Oakley store in Carlisle. Black and Chellious (Jack) Moore were driving at a slow rate of speed and were headed south. The driver did not see Mr. McKinley but felt the car hit some object and immediately pulled to the curb on the Ogle Service Station side of the street. Mr. McKinley had just left the office of Dr. J.S. Brown and had walked into the path of the car. Coroner Hubert Wagner, at the inquest, gave the cause of death as accidental and Black was not held. A driving rain at the time made visibility difficult. Mr. McKinley was carried to the sidewalk and was rushed to the Mary Sherman Hospital at Sullivan in a Risinger and Kreage ambulance but died a few minutes after reaching the hospital. Both legs were broken and he had suffered a fractured skull.
      Mr. McKinley was born on a farm adjoining the present McKinley farm three miles southwest of Carlisle on December 25, 1861, and was 77 years, 2 months and 9 days of age at the time of his death. He was the son of John McKinley. His wife, who before her marriage was Eliza Cook, departed this life on December 27, 1929.
      The deceased is survived by four children as follows: William, who made his home with his father; John E., of Toledo Ohio; Dewey of near Carlisle; and Mrs. Thomas (Lulu) Bowen, of near Carlisle. He is also survived by a brother Charles E. McKinley, of Shelbyville, Ill., and by nine grandchildren. A daughter Mrs. Edgar Willis, also precedes him in death. The grandchildren are Ellsworth McKinley, of Columbus, Ohio, Mrs. Sam Lindsey of Midland, Michigan, Miss Frances Willis of Terre Haute, Robert and Doris Jean McKinley, of Toledo, Ohio and Willard, Ruth, Norma and Ronald McKinley of near Carlisle. Following his death at the hospital Mr. McKinley's body was brought to the Risinger & Kreage Funeral Home here and taken to the home Sunday afternoon. Funeral services were conducted from the Carlisle Christian Church at 2:00 o'clock Tuesday afternoon, the services being in charge of Rev. Bolton, pastor of the Shaker Prairie Christian Church. Burial was made in the Carlisle Oddfellows Cemetery.
      *Note from Patty* This newspaper clipping states that Alonzo was born in 1861, however Alonzo is found on the 1860 census at 1 year of age, so he would have had to have been born in 1859.
