In the newspaper, Tarboro Free Press (Tarboro, NC) Fri., Nov. 7, 1828 is found:
Fayetteville (NC) Oct. 29 It is our painful duty to record another sudden death occasioned by intemperance. Daniel Munroe, of the county, was found dead in the suburbs of this town on Sunday morning last, and the verdict of the jury of inquest who sat over him was, that he "came to his death by intemperance." Mr. Munroe was a hard working, honest citizen, and not very much addicted to drinking to excess. He had been in town on Saturday, and had become much intoxicated before he left the house of a friend, at about 11 o'clock at night, to go home. It is supposed he fell from his horse and suffocated, as his face was very black when he was found.
I have no interest in this family and only post this as a resource.
