Thomas Jefferson Nance © Cheyenne Star 23 Nov 1916 Submitted by: Wanda Purcell
Last Thursday night Thomas "Tom" Nance, well known here, and a heavy property owner in this city, was killed in an auto accident at Clinton.
The accident occurred on a bridge, just east of Clinton. Mr. Thornburg, the driver apparently lost control of the car and the Jeffery car crashed through the railing on the bridge, fell to the ground and Mr. Nance was caught beneath the heavy car and death came to him instantly. Mr. Thornburg was very seriously injured and died a few hours later at the Clinton Hospital.
Mr. Hawks, the postmaster at Clinton, was also in the car, and while he sustained very painful injuries, it is not thought that Mr. Hawks is in a dangerous condition.
Burial in Oakland Cemetery, Menard county, Illinois.
