Description: Two Men Killed. SHEPARD, APT

Date: June 20 1876

Newspaper published in: Cairo, Illinois

From the Golconda Herald of the 16th we learn that on Monday of last week an "accident occurred at the Rose Clare mines which caused the instant death of two men and the severe injury of three others. It appears the timbers in one of the drifts gave way, and the fall of rock and earth from above killed one Frank SHEPARD and Andrew APT, the former a Welshman and the latter a German. Of the three injured one got his leg broken, one received a severe cut on the arm, and the other received internal injuries. The timbers in the shaft gave way some few weeks since and were repaired, but since that time heave been considered dangerous. Three men who were down in the shaft escaped unhurt."
