Republican May 15, 1876 Page 3 Col 2 - Crawford Co., PA
Mr. Wm A Apple, who left this city for Texas in February, and has been teaching school at the village of Crocket, Houston County, in that State, since his arrival there, was accidentally shot and instantly killed on Saturday while out hunting, by a young gentleman from Venango, this county. His body will not be brought here, owing to the great distance. Mr. Apple was a young man of great promise, graduated at the Meadville High School in the class of '74, and was considered a remarkably brilliant youth. Mr Apple who is only 18 years old had made many friends during his residence here, and sudden taking off is deeply regretted.
