Child Reportedly Killed at Richardson in 1898


Transcribed by Norma Knotts Shaffer from microfilm of the Calhoun Chronicle dated 10/25/1898

A Sad Accident

A report reaches us, and we have good reason to believe it true, that Thomas Hickle, an attorney residing at Richardson, was cleaning a Winchester rifle one day last week and while thus engaged the gun was accidentally discharged, killing his little boy almost instantly.
Mr. Hickle is a very affectionate father and is almost demented with grief since the unfortunate accident.
