Heidlersburg, PA Horse Accident, Nov 1858
We regret to learn of the sudden death of MR. DANIEL S. MARTZ, of Huntington township, on Wednesday last. He was riding on the State Road, a short distance north of Heidlersburg, when it is thought his horse frightened and threw him; and one of his feet being fastened in the stirrup he was dragged some distance, and killed on the spot. His coat and vest were torn off him. He leaves a family to mourn his sudden death. He was a blacksmith, and formerly resided in Gettysburg. He was a brother of the Rev. Mr. Martz, of Harrisburg, formerly of our Seminary, and Lutheran missionary to India.
