Charlotte Manlove, 11-year-old daughter of H. D. Manlove, 424 Warwick road, Kenilworth, was struck and killed by a fast train last Friday morning as she was crossing the tracks at the Chicago and Northwestern railway station in Kenilworth. Her body, badly crushed, was carried fifty feet before it fell alongside the tracks.
The girl had gone to a store on the west side of the tracks to get some groceries for her mother. She was crossing to the other side through the opening in the picket fence which lines the tracks for a block in front of the station when struck by the through flyer.
The Manlove family had moved to Kenilworth six months ago from Cleveland. Mr. Manlove is a construction engineer.
The girl’s body was taken to Scott’s undertaking parlors in Wilmette after the accident, and short funeral services were held there on Saturday. Burial was made at Cleveland, O.
