Thomas F. Capels
died August 1, 1932
Thomas CAPELS, 4, son of Mr. and Mrs. Lester H. CAPELS of 1219 Carbon street, was injured fatally late yesterday afternoon when struck by an automobile as he ran into Hiawatha boulevard east at Carbon street during the heaviest traffic period of the day. The child was placed in a car and rushed to St. Joseph hospital where he died half an hour later. Dr. J. Howard FERGUSON, who assisted in the investigation by James BENNETT, coroner's assistant, conducted an autopsy and reported a crushed chest and fractured neck as the causes of the boy's death. Norbert FREY of 331 Wayland road, Lynnwood, driver of the car, picked the child from the pavement, took him to the hospital and reported the accident at police headquarters. In his story of the case Frey said he left his home in Lynnwood at 5 o'clock to drive to the plant of the Muench-Kreuze Candle Co., Inc., 617 Hiawatha boulevard east, where he is employed as a night watchman. He planned to arrive a little earlier than usual he said. As he approached the intersection of the boulevard and Carbon street, the boy stepped off the curb and darted into the street. He ran between two eastbound machines and into the path of the FREY car. The car struck him and threw him aside before the driver could swerve away. FREY said traffic on the boulevard, east and westbound, was heavier than usual late yesterday afternoon and his car was forced to travel at a moderate rate of speed.

FIANCÉE BREAKS DOWN AT CAPELS FUNERAL SERVICE
Miss Alvina Pozzi in Serious Condition After Collapse

Overcome by grief, Miss Alvina POZZI, 1703 Milton Avenue, broke down during funeral services for her fiancee, Thomas J. CAPELS, 25, 1010 Avery Avenue, in St. Patricks Church today and was carried, hysterical and semi-conscious out of the church to her home, where she is in a serious condition. Her breakdown followed the collapse of William CAPELS, one of the seven brothers of the dead youth, who was to have served as a bearer but was unable to leave the family home with the funeral cortege. The other six brothers–Edward, Lester, Roger, Harold [sic], Lawrence and Loren, Jr.–were much affected by the collapse of their brother and the girl who was to have been their sister-in-law, but took part in the entire service. The funeral was markedly impressive, with hundreds of friends of the dead youth and his family crowding the church and almost the entire membership of the Cummings Athletic Club, in which he was a leader, acting as an escort of honor from the home to the church and from the church to the cemetery. Many wept unrestrainedly through the mass, and several other mourners were on the verge of collapse. Young CAPELS was killed Monday night at Walton, when a huge "Tarvia" truck which he was operating for the Barrett Company of Solvay, skidded off a wet road and turned over on him. He was employed as a helper for the driver, who quit the job Monday, and had volunteered to drive the truck in to a garage for shelter when the accident happened. The truck was one of two being used in spreading a road-surfacing preparation near Walton. James GLEASON and James MALONEY, crew of the other truck, who were among the first to reach CAPELS after the accident, attended the funeral.

EXPIRES IN STREET
-------------
Mrs. Eliza A. Caples Dies While Out Walking
-------------
DECEASED 66 YEARS OF AGE

-----------
Apparently in the Best of Health and Spirits, the Aged Woman Suddenly Drops to the Ground Lifeless--Her Companions Rush for Assistance, but When Physician Arrives He Discovers That the Woman Is Beyond Aid.
--------------
Mrs. Eliza Ann CAPLES, an aged and highly respected resident of the western part of the city, died last night in Willis avenue shortly after 8 o'clock while out walking with her friends. Mrs. Caples, who was 66 years of age, left her home at No. 106 Eighth North street, near Chemung street, in the Ninth Ward, earlier in the evening, apparently in the best of health and spirits and she showed no symptoms of indisposition until she had nearly reached the bridge over the Erie Canal in Willis avenue. Suddenly she clutched the arm of one of the women accompanying her and sank to the ground lifeless. Her two companions were panic-stricken for an instant, but recovering themselves, one of them went for assistance. She procured aid and the lifeless form of Mrs. Caples was borne to a nearby house and a physician summoned, but she was beyond the reach of medical skill. Coroner D. F. MATHEWS was notified and gave Undertaker Louis McKINLEY permission to move the body to the dead woman's home. He will investigate the case this morning.
