J.W. Hamilton Son Run Over In Comanche, Texas Circa 1915

This is a 1915 Ford. I doubt seriously that this is the vehicle that did the damage on that long ago day.

This is a 1915 Ford Model T Town Car. I doubt seriously that this is the vehicle that did the damage on that long ago day.

I am reading a clipping from a scrapbook. The page appears to be from about 1915; however, this particular article is not dated.


A son of J.W. Hamilton was run over by an automobile Monday in front of Claude Cox’s residence about noon. He was on his way to dinner from school and seizing the rear end of the passing wagon for a ride, jumped off just in time to get in front of the car and was knocked down, the car passing over him but the wheels missed him.

We understand he was only bruised and not seriously injured. He did not see the car, and it was purely accidental.
