About noon Sunday, Coroner W. U. Yeagy was summoned to Rainsville to hold an inquest over the remains of William Longnecker, who dropped dead in the yard of his niece, Mrs. T. W. Hinton, about 3 p.m. Saturday. The inquest as far as completed developed that William Longnecker was about 68 years old, medium height, sandy completed, with light blue eyes; that he had made his home with the Hintons for some years, and that his general health up to the time of his death was good. That he sustained at least slight injuries by being run over by a horse and buggy while on the road near the Fletcher Springs by a young Smith some three weeks before his death, marks from which accident still were plain to be seen upon the body; that he dropped dead in the yard while cutting wood, and that he died from heart disease. The Coroner went to the scene, upon request of parties, Monday afternoon, for the purpose of making a post mortem but the near relatives objected and the matter was passed. Further investigation of the case will be made in the Coroner's Court at Rainsville Saturday morning. The funeral services were held Monday afternoon and the remains laid to rest in the Rainsville Cemetery. Samuel Landon, a resident of Liberty Township and for many years a business man of Attica and well known throughout both couties, died at his farm near this place, Wednesday morning about 11 o'clock from stomach and bowel trouble. Mr. Landon was 75 years old past, and had been in poor health for the past year or more but not bad until within the last three weeks. The funeral services will be held at the residence at 11 o'clock tomorrow after which interment will be made in Riverside Cemetery, Attica.
