Henry E. Ziock

HENRY E. ZIOCK was born 1880 in St. Louis.  He was the son of August Ziock,Sr. & Elise Schrobeck.  Henry never married.  He played a musical string instrument (can't remember which one right now but will look it up later - maybe the mandolin) and was very popular at parties.  In 1910 Henry, age 34, was living with his parents & his occupation is listed as a bill clerk for a hardware store. One night in 1918 he and a friend were on their way home from party.  At 11:00 p.m. at Grand & Shaw Avenue they came around a corner too fast swerving out of control and their car was hit by a streetcar.  No one on the streetcar was injured although they were thrown into a panic & several women fainted.   The car Henry was in was dragged a short distance by the streetcar & then burst into flames.  Dr. Lebrecht who was passing by at the time jumped from his car broke the glass in the wrecked car & managed to pull Henry from the wreckage & beat out the flames on Henry's upper body with his hands.  Dr. Lebrecht & other rescuers attempted to get Mr. Koch, Henry's friend & driver of the vehicle, but Mr. Koch was pinned under the steering wheel & the flames became too intense.  He was burned almost beyond recognition.  Henry was taken to St. Louis City Hospital suffering from a fractured skull, cuts about the head & body, & severe burns.  Henry died later of his injuries.  He is buried in New Pickers Cemetery in St. Louis.
