THE WESTERN STAR, 15 February 1907
Willie Richardson's Sad Death.

Willie, the 17 year old son of Mr. and Mrs. A. R. Richardson, met a sad death on last Saturday. A short time before noon he was at work about a feed wagon at the home of his father on the M. C. Campbell ranch in the southwestern part of Clark county, and while setting on the feed wagon he started to put a shotgun, which he carried, into the scabbard. The gun slipped from his hands and fell to the ground, striking on the stock and causing the load to be discharged. The ball struck the body of the young man about the thigh and ranged upward, passing through some of the vital organs and lodging, evidently, in the upper part of the chest. Death ensued at about 11 p.m. The body was brought to Coldwater on Monday forenoon and laid to rest in the Coldwater cemetery. Rev. I. W. Bailey of the Baptist church conducted the funeral exercises. The Woodmen camp of this city, of which the father is a member, rendered timely and appreciation assistance in performing the last sad rites of burial. The bereaved family whose hearts are now bowed down with almost
inexpressible grief have the sincere sympathy of all.
