ELMORE, Roscoe -- Source: Crawfordsville Weekly Journal Sept 10, 1897
Last Saturday afternoon a sad accident which will doubtless result in the death of Roscoe Elmore, the 13 year old son of James B. Elmore, occurred in Ripley townhip. Roscoe with his 7 year old brother took a small 20 calibre rifle and went to a neighboring swamp to hunt. The younger lad had the weapon and in some way shot his brother. The ball penetrated his bowels and found lodgment in his hip. Dr. Henry was called from Alamo and pronounced the injury fatal. Note: Roscoe died in 1958

EMERSON, (Mrs) JW - close call - almost burned to death
