JOSEPH GORMAN DIES
Employe (sic) of Tram Company Since Horse Car Days Succumbs
Joseph E. Gorman, 57, died Wednesday evening at his home at 4306 Burdette street. He was ill but a few minutes before his death, which was caused by heart trouble. Surviving are his wife, one daughter, Veinette, and two sons, Lee and Howard. Mr. Gorman was a pioneer resident of Omaha and had been an employe (sic) of the street railway company since 1885, having begun in the days of the old horse cars. For several years he rode a horse which was used to help pull the cars up the hill from Fifteenth to Eighteenth on Farnam street. He served in practically every department of the company and for the past several years was foreman of the machine shop.
