Ansley, Joseph

Pole Falls On Worker - Joseph Ansley, age 48, of Albuquerque, New Mexico, was killed in an accident on January 14th west of Havana when one of these heavy utility poles (one on ground on opposite side of truck) struck him while the structures were being unloaded. The death was ruled accidental. A utility pole weighing over a ton fell on a Sun Electric Company worker who was crushed as fellow workers were unloading four of the poles from a trailer west of Havana.

Joseph Ansley, 48, of Albuquerque, New Mexico was pronounced dead at the scene by Deputy Coroner Lee Coffman. Yell County Sheriff CID Officer John Foster investigated the incident and stated that apparently Ansley was undoing some straps that held the load of four heavy utility poles when one of poles fell off the truck unexpectedly and crushed Ansley.

The body was sent to the State Medical Examiners office and Deputy Coroner Kathy Gillespie said the cause of death was crushing head, neck, chest, abdomen and pelvic injuries. She stated that Ansley would have been killed almost instantly due to the severity of the injuries. Foster said the incident was ruled an accidental death.

Ansley is married and has two sons. His body was sent back to New Mexico according to Gillespie. He was an employee of Sun Electric of Odessa, Texas which was installing the large steel structures for utility purposes. Each of the structures can weigh between 2,800 and 6,800 pounds depending on the length and width of the structures.

Apple, Frank

Frank Apple is Electrocuted In Accident Near Danville. . Frank Apple, aged 50, of Belleville was killed instantly about 9:00 a. m. yesterday when a guy wire he was holding came in contact with a 13, 000 volt high line about two miles east of Danville on Highway 10. Herbert Havner, carpenter from Danville who was working in the nearby home, narrowly escaped death when he was prevented from grabbing the wire by O. H. Kays, who was working with him. Mr. Havner said he became excited when Mr. Buckman shouted to them and when he saw the flames, and he rushed toward Mr. Apple with the intentions of jerking the wire away from the high-line. When Kays stopped him, his hand was less than two feet from the wire. Mr. Apple said Gloyd Buckman, also of Belleville, who were partners in the well-drilling business, had raised the derrick securing the guy wires. The top of the rig was higher than the high line and reportedly within three or four feet of it. As Mr. Apple was walking with one of the guy wires to fasten it down, it came into contact with the high line. Witnesses reported the high voltage ignited his clothing and his entire body was badly burned. Two fires of the well drilling rig which were partly buried in the ground also caught fire. Mr. Buckman succeeded in knocking the wire loose with a long board, stopping the flow of the current and the roaring noise accompanying it.

Mr. Apple is survived by his wife; two daughters, Frankie Lou and Nancy Lee, of Little Rock; his parents, Mr. and Mrs. Will Apple of Havana; two brothers, Will Apple of Portland, Oregon and Lee Apple of Paris and one sister Mrs. Rosie Valentine of Belleville.

Apple, John

John Apple, aged about 75, who lived alone in a small house at Havana, 25 miles west of here on Highway 10, was burned to death at 3:30 a.m. Tuesday. The fire, of undetermined orgin, also destroyed the house and furnishing. Fireman from Danville, who removed the charred body from the ruins, said apparently the aged man had attempted to leap from bed when the flames finally awoke him, but he was overcome and could only fall back on the floor, where he perished in the fire. Havana residents said the man's wife also resided in Havana, but that they had been estranged for some time. Neighbors were awakened by the screams of the dying man and the flames, but there was no hope of extinguishing the roaring fire. Although the source of the fire was not known, neighbors speculated that it may have caught from a wood stove.

The survivors include in addition to the widow, two sons, Jimmy, of the army; Joe, of Havana; four brothers, Sam, Wilburn and Ed, of Dardanelle; Charles, of Marlow, Okla.; and two sisters, Mrs. Alice Taylor, Marlow, Okla., and Mrs. Julia Watkins, of Belleville.
