Death of Former Midway Pastor
The body of the Rev. Edward Vickers Shotwell, 78, retired minister, was
found on December 17 in a small stable on his farm near Elizabeth.
Because of injuries on the body, an autopsy was ordered and county
detectives were investigating the possibility of foul play. The
Rev. Mr. Shotwell was a former pastor of the Midway Methodist church,
having preached here several years about 1913. He attended the
homecoming of the Midway church about eight years ago and was present at
the Tucker M. E. homecoming at Florence last summer. He is
survived by his wife and several children.
