E.A. Mattix Dead
J.E. Gibson received a paper from Duluth, Minnesota,giving account of E.A. Mattix death.
He died Tuesday night of last week,death resulting from being struck by a falling bill board on the evening before, the skull being fractured.
The deceased was raised near here by one John Scarry and has been away from here about 25 years and was proprietor of the Lyceum drug store and was heavily interested in real estate at the head of the lakes.he was almost 40 years old and leaves a wife and a 14 year old son.
I found this in an old newspaper I am not related to the subject just posting for others.
