Lorence Levandoski (Lawrence Lewandowski)
b: 24 Jun 1863 - d: 22 Jun 1923
Lorence Levandoski, aged 60 years, a farmer residing on the Ridge Road in the town of Gaines, near Albion, died today from injuries sustained when his team of horses ran away with him yesterday morning. Mr. Levandoski went to work as usual and went out in the field driving his team, which was hitched to a heavy farm wago. During the course of the morning, his son Michael, working another point on the farm, saw the team of horses running away. He went immediately to search for his father and found him lying on the ground unconscious. The son called neighbors to assist him and his father was removed to the house where he was attended by Dr. Cooper, who rushed from Albion in an automobile. It is not known certainly, but it is believed that the wheels of the wago passed over Mr. Levandoski's body. An internal hemorrhage took place.
Mr. Levandoski came here from Poland 36 years ago. He had an excellent reputation in Orleans County for his industry, ability and family life. He had been very successful as a farmer and had acquired the title to valuable farm property.
Surviving are his wife, Rose (Movawaski), two sons, Michael of Albion and Bernard, who is married and lives in Medina. Funeral services will be held from St. Mary's Church Friday morning.
