BLUNDELL, is in a condition that is considered most grave by his physicians. A number of the shot lodged in the back of his neck, near the vertebrae and from these septic poisoning has set in. His face is paralyzed and he is suffering from an attack of jaundice. To-day he is much weaker.
Mrs. Blundell, who shot Benoist, still refuses to talk for publication, but her defense will be that she was so cruelly treated by Benoist that she was rendered desperate. She will testify that as a result of her quarrel with Mrs. Benoist her brother slapped and beat her in the presence of the family and then kicked her repeatedly as she fled into the house. She will say that he followed her into the house and repeated his abuse and that as he left with a taunt she seized a shotgun near at hand and fired a single shot that struck him in the face and neck. http://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~npmelton/calnew06.htmhttp://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~npmelton/calnew06.htm 1910 Pyramid Lake Indian Reservation, Washoe, Nevada census Household Gender Age Birthplace Head George Blundell M 41 England Wife Mattie Blundell F 31 California b: 1879 Son Ira Blundell M 10 Nevada Daughter Irene Blundell F 8 Nevada Son Ivan Blundell M 6 Nevada Hired man Walter F King M 42 Maine George Blundell Wife: Mattie Benoist http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GRid=13350714http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GRid=13350714
