Carothers, William J. "Billy" (Unknown - October 17, 1900)
Died From His Injuries:
Bill Barlows Budget - October 17, 1900Mr. W.J. Carothers, of Wagon Hound, died this morning of injuries received last Sunday evening. He was on horseback in chase of a cow, near the ranch, and while at full speed his horse stumbled, throwing him against the horn of the saddle and rupturing an intestine. Dr. Wittke was called; but nothing could be done other than to lessen the agony of the sufferer until death came.
"Billy" Carothers, by which name he was best known, was 39 years of age, an old resident of the county, and a man universally respected. His untimely death is universally regretted. He leaves a wife and one child. The funeral will take place tomorrow from the Episcopal church, at 2:30 p.m., under the auspices of the local Odd Fellows lodge, of which deceased was an honored member.
