DROWNED IN A WELL
"John S. Camp, a farmer 64 years of age, living near Lynn Station, Greer township, this county, was drowned in a well on his farm last Saturday morning early. The indications point toward suicide. Mr. Camp was stricken with paralysis about two years ago; and again about six weeks ago he received another partial stroke. The well was an old, disused one, twenty-three feet deep; and the cover had to be removed before he could be drowned therein. After every other place in the neighborhood had been searched, a pair of grab-hooks was used in the well, and the body was recovered. County Coroner James S. Sanders examined the body, and gave in his verdict that the unfortunate man came to his death by "drowning in a well in his yard."
The funeral took place Sunday."
