Following are some newspaper clippings pertaining to an unfortunate event in the life of Rose (Hollenbeck) Leonard. On September 15, 1926, Rose was driving her horse pulled wagon with her 2-year old son, Robert Leonard, when the horse became spooked and began to run. The wagon tipped over, throwing them both from the wagon. Rose's leg was broken, but Robert was uninjured. The local news chronicled her recovery.
