Eugene Sabey Death and Obit

Contributor: gawarren Created: 2 years ago Updated: 2 years ago

EUGENE SABEY Eugene Sabey was instantly killed by a cave in at Overland Mine. His life was crushed out. While at work with three other men 500 feet under ground, a huge rock fell on him. (Special to the "News".) Cedar Fort, April 11, 1906: A fatal accident occurred at the Overland Mine at Sunshine this morning, the victim was being Eugene Sabey, a miner aged about 25 years. Sabey, with three other miners, went down to the 500 foot level to work this morning, and while operating an air drill, a large quantity of rock and ore caved in. A huge rock struck Sabey on the head, felling him to the ground fracturing his skull and killing him instantly. Fortunately, none of the other miners were injured. Assistance was quickly sent for, and Sabey's body was taken to the surface and turned over to an undertaker. When the mass of rock fell, Sabey was knocked over onto the machine, and when his companions went to him they found him dead. Sabey has worked about the mine for several months. He was married and leaves a wife and one child. His father resided in Wasatch County, and has been notified of his son's sudden and shocking death. Arrangements for the funeral of the unfortunate man have not been made. Mrs. Sabey was terribly shocked upon receipt of the sad news of her husband's death. OBITUARY - SUNSHINE Fatal Mine Accident: Eugene Sabey killed in Overland Mine - Impressive funeral services - Special Correspondence. Sunshine, Tooele Co., April 18, 1906: The funeral over the remains of Eugene Sabey, who was accidentally killed in the Overland Mine here Wednesday last, was held in the meetinghouse at Cedar Fort, Utah County yesterday. Many attended from Lehi, Mercur, Fairfield and Sunshine. The speakers were Elders James Peterson, B.W. Driggs, Lysander Berry and Andrew Park and Bishop Eli Bennett of Cedar Fort. It was the largest funeral ever held at that place. Every mark of respect was shown the deceased. A subscription was taken up here today for the widow, and something like $200 has been given by the employees of the mine, 25 in number. The mine closed down for two days on account of the fatality. Shearing is on in full blast at Fairfield. Sheep are held there for "dipping", and no amount of "kicking" is indulged in by owners on account of the hardship, as they term it, imposed. Sheep are in fair condition and the industry is prospering.
