Notes for RALPH ENYEART: From the South Whitley Tribune in South Whitley, Indiana ... Thursday, June 10, 1920

 

Ralph Enyeart, nineteen year old son of Orphas and Myrtle Enyeart, who reside on a farm a short distance south of town, died at the Fort Wayne Lutheran Hospital at midnight, Monday, June 7, from injuries received Sunday afternoon when the Overland car he was driving left the road near the Sam Albright farm north of town, and landed in the ditch. The young man was pinned beneath the steering wheel and a portion of the metal frame of the windshield pierced his left lung. He was removed to the office of Dr. Hart, for first aid and thence to the Lutheran Hospital in Miller & Fisher's ambulance.

Ralph with his two brothers, Frank and Harley Enyeart and Harold Kreider, were driving to Tri Lakes, the occupants say at a rate of about twenty miles an hour when the car suddenly left the road, landing on its side. Immediately after the crash the other boys freed the victim form the steering wheel and finding the piece of frame sticking in his body, pulled it out with the result that the victim breathed with great difficulty and the blood rushed forth freely. After the doctor closed the wound he breathed more freel. Further examination at the hospital showed the lungs were filling with blood. Realizing that the end was not far off his relatives were called and they remained at his side until the end.

Ralph Enyeart was born in Huntington County, July 9, 1901, being but a few weeks short of twenty years of age. The family moved to Cleveland Township a few years ago, locating on the farm near South Whitley.

He had been employed at the Grip Nut Factory during winter months and assisted on the farm during the summer. He was an industrious youth and well liked by his associates.

Besides the parents, three brothers, Frank, Harley and Dorsey, and one sister, Ruth, survive him.

Funeral services were held at the U. B. Church Wednesday afternoon. Rev. Nicodemus officiating. Burial was in the South Whitley Cemetery.
