F.M. Ridgeway Died From Auto Mishap

Prominent Swan TWP. Citizen Killed Last Thursday Evening.

Collision At Road-Turn.

Crushed Under Big Machine Lived Less Than an Hour After Deplorable Accident

Another terrible accident in which the life of a Marion county citizen paid the toll, occurred near the “Q” station of Avon, in Warren County, shortly after dark last Thursday evening, when Frank M. Ridgeway, president of the Bank of Swan, was so badly injured in an auto accident that he died within an hour following the mishap.

Mr. Ridgeway and Frank Oswell had been to Des Moines and were returning home. At a in the road another car, driven by Frank Berry and in which the latter’s wife and children were seated, was trailing the Ridgeway car, driven by Mr. Oswell. Mr. Oswell swung out to make the turn to the east (direction of Swan) and at that instant the Berry car, under full head of speed, plowed into the left side of the Swan car, near the middle. Mr. Ridgeway’s chest was crushed and he was able to utter only a few words after the accident. Mr. Oswell escaped with only slight injuries, as did also Mr. Berry and his family. The injured man was taken to Carlisle where he expired in less than an hour after the accident. Oswell, it is said, was thrown clear of the car; Mr. Ridgeway was pinned under the wreck.

     Frank Ridgeway, as he was familiarly known to his many friends, was one of the most prominent residents of Swan township. For several years he was a progressive farmer and stockman residing near Warren county line. Lately he had lived in Swan, was president of the Bank of Swan, and was also interested in a business way at his home village. He made frequent trips to Knoxville and had many friends here.

     Francis Marion Ridgeway was born in Illinois on September 15, 1858, and died March 9, 1922, at the age of 63 years, 5 months and 22 days. He was one of a family of seven brothers and three sisters: William Ridgeway of Oklahoma, and Ellen Niece, of Green Island, who survive him.

     He came to Marion county when a boy and was married to Mary Carolina Failor, in 1876, at the age of 18 years. They moved to Warren County where they lived until about five years ago when they moved to Swan where he was a salesman for automobiles. At the time of his death he was president of the Swan Saving Bank. He is survived by his wife.

     Funeral Services were conducted on, Saturday, March 11, at 11 o’clock a.m. at the Christian church, by Rev. Barr, of Pleasantville, assisted by Rev. Stockholm, of Des Moines, who was a close friend of the deceased. Interment was made in the Swan cemetery.”
