FLUHRER, OSCAR - Oscar Fluhrer, the young man who was struck by a Big Four freight train while riding a motorcycle over Dye's mill road crossing Monday night of last week, died shortly after six o'clock Saturday evening at the home of Mrs. Nannie Rosser of South Mulberry street where he roomed. He remained unconscious from the time of the accident until death came. All that could be done for him was done but to no avail. His sister, Miss Emma Fluhrer of St. Louis, his brother Edward of Kansas City, and his cousin, Miss Emma Frederick of Dayton, were with him at the time of his death. Mr. Fluhrer was born in Marysville, Kansas, Aug. 9, 1881. For the past seven years he had been a resident of Troy and had been employed at the Troy Carriage Sun-Shade plant. He was highly regarded both as a man and as an employee and his untimely death has saddened all who knew him. He was a member of the Red Men and of the Woodmen of the World and both orders gave their ritualistic services at the funeral service held at the Rosser home and which, was conducted by Rev. Clokey and Rev. Holt. The body was taken to Dayton Monday and funeral services were held there Tuesday afternoon with interment at Woodland cemetery.
