D. W, Shinn, 76 years old, died at his home at 716 Tenth street
yesterday afternoon. Mr. Shinn was an "eighty-niner" and a confederate
veteran. He was born in Tennessee and served throughout the war under

moved to Oklahoma City.
He is survived by five sons, G.T. Shinn of Mount Vernon, Ill., Frank Shinn
of Elgin, Kansas, Walter Shinn of Agra, Ollie Shinn of Oklahoma City, Harry
