(His father had died in 1884). I had heard a family story of his death, and also found an obit. They didn't mince their words in obits in those days; the descriptions were very graphic!

Since finding Calvin's obit and receiving your e-mail I have attempted to find it once again to verify the date of death. As has happened before I cannot find the newspaper. I have noted in two places that the year was 1881, but it easily could be a reado and was 1884. Did you know before how he died tragically? carol >From: "Esther Mott" <emott6 -at- comcast.net> >Reply-To: whitney -at- rootsweb.com >To: <WHITNEY -at- rootsweb.com> >Subject: [WHITNEY] Obit of Calvin E.
