MAN TRAMPLED BY CALVES.

An elderly Leavenworth County man has died after he was trampled on by calves.

Eugene W. Zule, 86, had sold the calves and was moving them from a pen to be loaded onto a trailer late Saturday morning at 26974, 179th St. according to Sgt. Andy Dedeke, Leavenworth County Sheriff's Office.

He was holding a gate when several calves weighing an estimated 300 to 400 pounds knocked the gate down. The gate landed on top of Zule. The calves then walked over the gate as Zule still laid underneath.

Zule's granddaughter and the person who was purchasing the calves were at the scene at the time of the accident.

The Delaware Township Fire Department, Leavenworth County EMS and the sheriff's office responded. Zule was transported to Saint John Hospital and later flown by helicopter to KU Med Center, Kansas City, Kan., for possible internal and head injuries, Dedeke said.

Zule died the next day at KU Med Center, according to the Belden-Sexton-Sumpter Funeral Chapels.

Obituary with surnames WEIR submitted by Shelley Windal. Date of death Tuesday, June 3, 2003
Hello,

George Weir was my GG-uncle. He was born March 25, 1836 in TN. His parents were William B. C. and Catherine Weir. He moved from St. Clair Co. Missouri between the 1860 and 1870 censuses. George was in the Tonganoxie 1870 census. Although I can't find him in the 1880 census, he was in Leavenworth in 1900 and the article says he was a longtime resident. I am searching for any of his direct descendants so if you find any, send them my way! (smile)

Have a good day.
