NEWSPAPER TIDBIT: Severed Hand Buried In Lizton Cemetery (1935)

An item found in The Republican (Danville, Indiana) - issue of Thursday, March 14, 1935 - page 1, column 4:

Word has been received here that Oscar Eugene Holman, age 19, recently suffered the loss of his right hand when it was severed in machinery while at work in an automobile tire plant at Akron, Ohio. The hand was buried in the cemetery at Lizton. Young Holman is the son of Mr. and Mrs. Wilmer Holman and the family formerly lived here. The father was a meat cutter here for a number of years and the family often visits Mr. and Mrs. John Graham of this place.
