1893 - November 7, 1907

From The Dallas Morning News, Nov. 8, 1907:

"Albert Goodnight, a 14-year-old boy at the Buckner Orphans' Home, was killed by a runaway team yesterday morning. He rode from the home to the Texas and Pacific station on the wagon of a farmer of that neighborhood.

Upon their arrival at the station the farmer alighted from the wagon and the boy in attempting to follow him touched the hip of one of the mules with his hand. The animal started forward, and other mule taking the alarm, the team began to run. Young Goodnight, becoming entangled in the harness, was cushed betwen the wagon and a telephone pole, against which the team ran, a few yards from the station. He lived but a short time.

The deceased was an orphan and had been at the home several years. The remains were taken in charge by Undertakers Ed Smith & Bro. The funeral will be held in the chapel at the home this afternoon. Interment will be in the cemetery at Buckner's."
