LeSAGE, J. A. (Joseph Achille)
SUICIDE OF J. A. LESAGE
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.
