    • Horse's Kick Proves Fatal Noah Kropf Died in Stratford Hospital

      Kicked in the head by a horse on the farm of his sister, Mrs. Noah Brenneman, on Lot 8 Con. 3, South Easthope, about five miles southwest of New Hamburg, Noah Kropf, aged 54 died in the Stratford hospital on Wednesday morning without regaining consciousness. The accident occurred last Saturday evening when Mr. Kropf let two horses out of the stable to put into pasture. Following the horses out of the stable door, one of them reared and kicked him above the eye from which he suffered a fractured skull and terrible head injuries. He was found unconscious in the barnyard and was rushed to the Stratford hospital for treatment, but from the outset no hope was held out for his recovery. The unfortunate accident victim was a son of the late Christian Kropf and was born near Cassel on September 17th, 1878. He spent his whole life in that district. Since his brother-in-law, Noah Bender, who died a few months ago, purchased the farm of the late Nicholas Roth in South Easthope, the deceased lived with his sister, who survives him besides two other sisters, Mrs. Peter B. Zehr, of South Easthope, and Mrs. Joseph J. Bender, of the Wilmot Township line, west of this village. The deceased was widely known and respected. The funeral will be held this Friday afternoon at 1.30 o'clock from his sister's home to the 16th line A.-M. Church and Cemetery in East Zorra.

      New Hamburg Independent, June 16, 1933
