    • Orla J. Hager - 1872 - June 23, 1899. Son of Delos B. and Emma S. Hager. Husband of Susie Baumgardner Hager. Section 4, Row 22.
      Newspaper Obituary - Wednesday, June 28, 1899 Mexico Independent - Mexico, New York - Texas - The greatest excitement prevailed here on Friday last about 5 p.m., when A. J. Rose, Esq., received a telegram announcing the death of his brother-in-law, Delos Hager, and son Orla J. Hager, during a severe electric storm near Manlius, New York, at about 1:30 p.m. Mrs. Hager's three brothers, A. J., Earl and Frank Rose went immediately to the home, reaching there at 2 p.m., finding not only the father and sons dead but another son Carl, 14 years old, was injured, a nice span of horses killed and the dog. Mr. Hager and son were engaged in drawing hay when the storm came and they took refuge under the hay, sticking the pitchfork in the load as they left the wagon. When the bolt came it split the fork handle, bent up the times and passed down through the hay, burning around the fork. Further particulars of the sad affair will be found in another column.
