Aged Man Hangs Himself
Particulars of Death of J.W. Waters, 90 years old, near Cedar Mills,
received at Sherman.
Speical to the News,
Sherman,Tex., Sept 12-The body of J.W. Waters, aged 80 years, was
found hanging to a rafter in the barn on the premises of his son, James
Waters, near Cedar Mills, yesterday morning.
Justice of the Peace Lloyd was summoned from Gordonville to view
the body and to take testimony in the Coroner's inquest. His finding was
that J.W. Waters came to his death from hanging and that death was self-inflicted.
Depondency from old age and ill health are the only reasons the
son of any member of the family can assign for the deed.
