From a 1908 Genoa Times, a Nance County, Nebraska newspaper:

H. S. [sic] Hinkle died at the residence of Andrew Kretz Wednesday afternoon at 5 o'clock from the result of injuries received last Saturday. Mr. Hinkle was driving out of town Saturday noon on his way home. Behind him was George Kilton, whose team became frightened at the cars, tipped the wagon over and breaking loose from the hind wheels, started on a run, crashing into Mr. Hickle's buggy and throwing him in front of his own team, where the old gentleman was tramped by the four horses. Mr. Hinkle had his right arm broken in two places, his shoulder injured and his body badly bruised. He was taken to the residence of Andrew Kretz nearby and a physician summoned. After examining the injured man the doctor pronounced his injuries serious. For a while the patient seemed to rally and Monday his condition was reported favorable. Tuesday there was a change for the worst and on Wednesday the end came. Deceased was about 65 years old and leaves a wife and five children, three sons and two daughters, all grown.

Hamilton M Hinkle, a veteran of the Civil War, served in Co. M, 3rd Colorado Cavalry Regiment. The 3rd Colorado Cavalry was formed in the summer of 1864 in response to Colrado Governor Evans' pleas for a regiment of Indian fighters. The 3rd Colorado Cavalry, a volunteer regiment authorized by the War Department, existed for only 100 days. More a militia than a military unit, the "Bloodless Third" was composed of "100-daysers," that is, volunteers who signed on for 100 days to fight against the Indians. (Its nickname came from its lack of battle experience.) Hamilton's Regiment was involved in the Sand Creek Massacre on 29 Nov 1864 where they lost 10 men and started calling themselves the "Bloody Third."
