Thriller Thursday - John Walton Wilmot

John Walton Wilmot was born in Lexington, Missouri on June 20, 1910, the son of Frederick Allen Wilmot and Ladine Walton. He was the oldest of their three sons.

He died on November 17, 1923 as a result from a fall from a horse. The horse then fell on him and crushed his skull. He was 13. The Wilmots had two more children born after John's death: Frederick, Jr. in 1925 and Normal (a female) in 1927.

  1. I believe Normal is actually Normal Ladine or Norma Ladine.

  2. What a sad ending to a short life. I have a 2nd great grandfather who died from a fall from a wagon. I'd sure like to know more about that.

  3. Aw -- how horrible for his family!

  4. Debi. My g-g-g-grandfather died after a fall from his horse in 1841.
