First Death in Hays City

The Hays City Railroad Advance on November 9, 1867 writes: "Killed - The first death we have to record in our city took place on Tuesday evening, and was the result of an accident. John Robinson, a Scotch laborer, having occasion to visit a stable in which were some mules, was so severely kicked by one of them that he died in a few hours. His skull was broken in several places."
