Man Dies In B'town Mishap

A Brownstown man died Thursday after his tractor apparently ran over him along IN 135 about two-tenths of a mile south of US 50 at 9:05 a.m. Thursday.

Trooper Sargent L. Richey, of the Seymour post of the Indiana State Police, reported Carl Edmond Wayman, 82, of Brownstown R2, was pulling small bushes from along IN 135 with his tractor when he parked the tractor on a small incline. Wayman got off the tractor and the tractor started to roll down the incline, the officer reported.

Trooper Ritchey reported, "Wayman ran to the tractor and tried to climb on. The tractor apparently knocked Wayman down and then rolled over him."

Funeral Saturday

Services will be conducted at 2 p.m. Saturday from the Winklepleck-Weesner Funeral Home in Brownstown, with the Rev. Charles Julian, pastor of the Brownstown Baptist Church, officiating. Burial in Fairview Cemetery.

Friends may call any time at the funeral home.

Mr. Wayman was a retired farmer and he spent his entire life in Jackson County.
