      Newspaper Obituary - Monday, June 13, 1932 Oswego Palladium Times - Oswego, New York - Probe Accident Bringing Death To Pulaski Man - Find No Eye Witness of Fatal Accident to Walter Weisenburger - Pulaski, June 13 - Assistant District Attorney Clarence J. Gormwn and local state troopers are investigating the automobile accident which brought instant death Sunday night to Walter W. Weisenburger, 24, son of Katherine Frommer Weisenburger and Adam Weisenburger of this village. Late Monday afternoon no eye¬witnesses to the tragedy had yet been found and no definite cause for the accident had been ascertained. The young man was killed shortly after 8 p.m. Sunday when his car and that driven by Francis Davey, Altmar, crashed head on, on the Altmar road, four miles east of here, near the Leffingwel farm. The Daveys and their five children were badly injured. Mrs. Lolita Davey, _2, regained consciousness Monday and stated their car was going east when Weisenburger's machine approaching them, seemed to shoot directly into the Davey automobile. Her son, Donald, 9, confnined this statement. Authorities believe a tire on the young man's car may have blown, swerving the machine into the other car.
      Notified Troopers - Charles Ellis, Syracuse, formerly of Pulaski, who had been visiting friends here, arrived at the scene of the accident first and called Trooper J. Doyle, Mr. Gorman and Dr. Fenton E. MacCallum. Weisenburger's body was thrown partially out of his overturned automobile and his head was crushed. Both cars were completely wrecked, the left side of the Dewey car and the right side of the other machine being ripped off Mr. Davey, 28, was thrown through the windshield. The Davey's were reported resting fairly comfortable Monday. Mr. Davey was taken at once to Crouse Irving hospital, Syracuse, for treatment of bad lacerations to the nose and face. The family had spent the day with Mr. and Mrs. Henry Gokey, Box street, and were returning home when the accident occurred. The Lawrence ambulance was called and the mother and children were returned to the Gokey home, where they are now under treatment. The children, and the injured they suffered, included: Donald, 9, broken collarbone; Norma, 4, long scalp wound, and Billy, 6, sprained arm of which x-ray pictures were being taken Monday afternoon. The other two children, Darcy, 3, and Thelma, one and one-half, suffered only cuts and bruises. Mrs. Davey had severe shoulder injuries, contusions of the jaw and shock. Mr. Davey and the two younger children were treated by Dr. John Mason and the rest by Dr. MacCallum. Graduate of Academy - Mr. Weisenburger was a graduate of Pulaski academy. He was formerly associated with his father in a gasoline station on the Syracuse-Watertown highway and more recently was employed by the town of Richland as a truck driver. He was born in Presho, South Dakota, February 4, 1908, and moved here with his family 13 years ago. He was unmarried. The young man was an active member of Pulaski lodge I.O.O.F., and Salmon River encampment. Arrangements for the funeral are incomplete. The body was removed to Foster's undertaking rooms. Besides his parents the victim is survived by four brothers, Carl, Alfred, Emil and Woodrow, and two sisters, the Misses Edna and Della Weisenburger.
