Stricker, Doc:  (also seen as  Doc Struckler)  “Doc Stricker, a harvest hand who had been working for James Slater, a few miles north of town, was struck on the head by a falling mast, last Saturday morning and received a wound on the head from which he died Sunday morning. The block on the mast struck his head, cutting a gash about four inches long, and fracturing the skull, which rendered him unconscious for several hours. It was about six o’clock in the morning when the accident happened. About twenty loads of grain had been thrown off with the nets and mast. The mast was staked down in the flat where the soil is deep and loose, but as so many loads had been lifted off without anything giving away, little attention was paid to it. When the stakes did pull up and the mast began to fall, the stacker shouted to Stricker who was standing in his wagon at the end of the stack to ‘jump out the way’, but Stricker did not seem to try to do anything, and the full force of the heavy pole came on his head and back. A messenger was immediately dispatched for a doctor, and the unfortunate man was carried to the house, where his wounds were dressed. The skull was found to be fractured, and the doctor stated that his recovery was a matter of grave doubt. During the day he recovered consciousness, but early Sunday morning signs of approaching death were manifest. About eight o’clock, just after the arrival of the doctor, on a second visit, he passed away. AS the bandage was removed from his head, he seemed to fail rapidly, and in a few moments was gone.  He owned some timber land near Milan, where he has a cousin living and to whom a message was sent before and after his death.  Little is known about him, however, if he has any other living relatives, their whereabouts are not known. He was thirty-eight years old, and for some time had been making his home near Milan, where he told some of the men he owned a couple of hundred acres of timber land. Every possible attention was given him, but it soon became evident that he could not  recover. The funeral was held and the remains interred in Davenport cemetery Monday, Oct 9th.”  (LCT: 9-12-1902);
