He was unmarried. Furnish had been seen by several people about town in the morning, and from these it had been learned he had not been drinking. He intended going back to Lexington and it was quite probable that he went down to the lower yards with the intention of getting a train out for the west. He was walking along the tracks westward when passenger train No. 11 came in from the east. He was walking alongside of the track when the fireman blew the signal, and then walked squarely to the center of the track, evidently believing that he was going from the track. He was thrown forward and before railroad men could reach him he was dead, death resulting instantly. Both of his legs and his skull was crushed. The above extract was taken from the Lincoln Star, and the news it conveys is sad indeed. Carson Furnish, a brother of the deceased went to Grand Island and brought the body to Edgar arriving there Tuesday night about midnight. The funeral occurred yesterday from the Ox Bow Church, the Edgar minister, Rev. Branic, conducting the ceremony. It was as large a funeral as had been held at this church for a number of years. Deceased leaves a mother, Mrs. T.J. Whited, a brother, Carson Furnish, and two sisters, Lottie and Maggie Furnish, besides many other near relatives. His body was laid to rest in the Ox Bow Cemetery. on April 18, 1907.3
