Kenefick Youth Dies because of Injuries
Clifford Harrington, aged 22, son of Mr. and Mrs. Andrew Harrington of Kenefick, died at the Memorial Hospital late Thursday afternoon, March 16, as a result of being run over by a K. N. & O. freight train he attempted to board at Kenefick. Young Harrington was brought to the hospital at Durant in a dying condition, the injuries being so serious he was not operated on. He died within 30 minutes after arriving at the hospital.
Harrington was an oil field worker; he and seven other young men were going to Henryetta and decided to go by the freight train. His companions boarded a gravel car in safety, by the train had so increased I speed that Harrington missed the step when he jumped for it and he was thrown under the wheels of the train. His left leg was cut off and he received a three inch gash on his head.
He was buried in the Caddo Cemetery Saturday at 11 am, Rev. John H. Boyet officiating. Young Harrington was liked and respected at Kenefick and his parents are prominent pioneers of the county.
