Had his left arm pulled off near shoulder, and right leg broken through kneecap by being caught on belt of a machine in Spring Works factory in May 1908. Had been working there more than 2 years. Was on his feet for first time after the accident the day this photo was taken. He died in Cincinnati one month short of his 86th birthday.
