D. W. Shinn

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
General John Morgan.

Mr. Shinn came to Oklahoma from Howard, Kansas, where he was living at 
the time the country was thrown open for settlement. He located at Guthrie
until the Sac and Fox country was opened, when he settled on a claim near
Agra, Okla. He lived there until about a year ago, when he sold out and 
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
Shinn of Agra, and two daughters, Mrs. Orea Atherton of Oklahoma City and 
Mrs. Ella Maddox of Benzaar, Kansas. The body will be sent to Agra today 
for burial beside his wife, who died there six years.
