Mason - Charley

Source: Crawfordsville Weekly Journal Friday 1 April 1898

Charley Mason, a brother of F. M. Mason, of Linden, committed suicide last week at his home in Howard County. He was well known here where he formerly visited since his removal. A special from Kokomo Saturday says:
“Charles N. Mason, a pensioner, was found hanging to a tree on his Harrison Township farm Friday morning. Being out longer than usual attending to his morning work, one of the children went out to call him to breakfast, when his body was found suspended from a tree in a grove near the barn. The suicide was the result of financial distress, he having worried considerably lately over money he had borrowed. He was about fifty five years old. He entered the army from Montgomery County, coming to this county twenty years ago. A wife and two children are left.”
