Kayhart, Roy (7 Nov. 1878 - 18 Feb. 1922)

Roy Kayhart was born on the farm in the town of Weston upon which he spend most of his life, Nov. 7th, 1878. A short time after finishing his schooling he took over the entire management of the home farm and became one of Clark county’s progressive farmers. He also took a vital interest in local affairs of the community, having been connected with the Farmers and Merchants Bank of Greenwood as one of the directors since its organization as well as having been connected with several other local enterprises for the betterment of the community.

He was united in marriage in April 1913 to Miss Nellie Ward of Antigo, Wisconsin, and to his union three children were born, Mildred, Irene, and Inez.

He was fatally injured by one of his horses the evening of Feb. 13th 1922, and the following morning he was taken to the Marshfield hospital where everything was done to aid in his recovery that human agency could do, but his injuries were too sever and he passed away without regaining consciousness early Saturday morning, Feb. 18th, 1922. He leaves besides relatives already mentioned his mother, two sisters, Mrs. Fred Draper of Loyal and Mrs. Wm. Swann of Neillsville besides numerous relatives more distant, and a host of friends to mourn his loss.

The funeral services were held from the Methodist church of Neillsville Tuesday, the Rev. W.T. Scott officiating with Masonic services at the cemetery where he was laid to rest beside the remains of his father, who was accidentally killed in the same barn eleven years previous.
