The young couple lived happily together for several years, until about the year 1853, when Mr. Kendall, being a devout. de-vout. Mormon, became impressed with the idea that his soul's salvation required re-quired him to take unto hi.vself another an-other wife. This he did, taking for his second wife, Elizabeth Clements, a younger sister of his flist wife.

He had just reached Huntington's Hunting-ton's place on the south side of town, when a freight train going west came along. As Mr. Kerr's horse was afraid of cars, he and his family jumped out of the buggy and Kerr tried to get the horse and buggy into the lane running run-ning up to Mr. Huntington's corral, but the train arrived opposite him before be-fore he could accomplish his object. The horse which was hitched to the buggy reared, turned around and made for the track, dragging with it another horse which was tied by its side. Mr. Kerr hung to the horse's bits until within a few feet of the track, but his efforts proved futile. The horses continued on until they got on the track In front of the moving mov-ing train which struck the loose horse, killing it instantly. The train also hit the buggy, smashing it to pieces. Strange to relate, tbe horse which caused all. the trouble was broken lose from the buggy in the collision and went tearing up the street on the sidewalk, nearly running over some little children in his wad career.
