LeSAGE, J. A. (Joseph Achille)
Who would have thought that Joe Lesage would commit suicide?  He resided in Ironton years ago,--was janitor of the school building--and a more cheerful man than he seemed did not live.  He was always in a good humor, and full of companionable talk with whomever he met. He married a daughter of the late I. C. Dovel, and was highly esteemed man.
He moved from here some twelve years ago, settling on a farm at Lesage's landing above Huntington, and recently he moved to Huntington where his son is practicing medicine.
Last Thursday afternoon, he hung himself.  He had his overcoat on to go downtown, and was waiting for his son, and while waiting, went to the barn.  When his son was ready, he also went to the barn, and there observed his father's feet hanging through a trap door, that opened from the hay loft.  The father had ascended to the loft, and with a piece of wire that comes on baled hay, had hung himself from a beam of the stable.  Life was just flickering in a few spasmodic breaths, as the son took the father from the fatal position; but resuscitation was impossible, and in a moment or two the man was dead.
It is said that for some weeks Mr. Lesage was afflicted with a carbuncle on his neck, and at times he was unconscious, the result of which experience was a disordered mind, which afflicted him with melancholia.
The deceased was a Union soldier and did courageous duty for his country.  He was buried last Saturday. -Ironton Register, February 4, 1892
