From The Manchester Press, Manchester, Iowa, 27 August 1902, Page 1: F. M. Hosier is carrying his right hand very gingerly in a sling, as he was the victim last Thursday. He was working for the Hoag boys, on their farm near Oneida, and while ascending a ladder in the barn to go into the mow he lost his balance and fell to the floor, a distance of twelve feet, badly spraining his right wrist and obliging him to take an enforced vacation. Mr. Hosier is a strictly temperate man, never taking anything stronger than root beer or a ham sandwich, so the fall was perfectly legitimate. It deprives him of work at good wages in the busy season, however.
Obituary from Manchester Press, Thursday, April 9, 1903, page 1: F. M. Hosier Suicide. The community was startled Monday morning by the news that F. M. Hosier, who occupied the Kelly farm near the Quaker Mill, north of Manchester, had committed suicide by hanging. It seems that Mr. Hosier, who has resided in the this part of the county for several years, had of late shown decided evidence of mental derangement. He had repeatedly threatened to take his own life, and had indeed be frustrated in two attempts prior to the successful one. On one occasion he was discovered in the attempt to end his life by hanging and at another time by drowning. On Monday Mr. Hosier went to the barn for the ostensible purpose of doing some work there. Mrs. Hosier, noticing his prolonged absence, went to the barn, to find her husband hanging from one of the beams in the cow barn dead, suspended a few feet from the ground by a strap. Sheriff Fishel and Coroner Lawrence were summoned, but the case was so clearly one of suicide that no inquest was held the funeral of the unfortunate man was held from his late residence yesterday afternoon. Rev. A. W. Caul of the Baptist church officiating. Mr. Hosier was 51 years of age and a man of quiet unassuming manner and of excellent reputation in the community. That insanity prompted him to end his existence there is not the slightest doubt, and the knowledge of this fact will constrain charitable remembrance of him. He is survived by his wife and two daughters, Miss Edna Hosier of the city and Mrs. McKinney of Waterloo.
