Millard Walker Smith Pa.ssetl
Away .\t State Road Home j
Monday lar.st Meek ‘
Coroner Stephen A. Rash was
called to State Road on Mon lay
of last week to investigate the
death of Millard Walker Smith,
age 4 5, who died at the home
of John Kennedy there, .^fter
hearing the evidence the coro
ner’s jury rendered a verdict of
“death by acute alcoholism.’’
According to evidence present
ed. Smith, who had been making
his home at State Road, visited
the Kennedy home Sunday night.
According to the Kennedys he
spent the night, arising about
three o’clock Monday morning.
It was said he built a fire and
sat down in a chair where he
remained until about six o’clock
when he suddenly pitched for
ward into the floor.
Members of the family were
said to have picked him up and
placed him upon a bed. They
said he appeared to be sleeping,
and that they left him and went
to the barn to milk. It was upon
returning from the barn that
they found Smith to be dead.
The coroner’s jury was empan
eled when it was suggested the
dead man might have been
drinking poison whisky, and Dr.
Hugh Parks. Bllkin physician,
was called in to make an exami
nation. However, due to the fact
that no autopsy was held, it was
found impossible lo determine if
this was the case.
It was said Smith had been
drinking prior to his death.
I^uneral services for the de
ceased were held Tuesday after
noon from the State Road Bap
tist church in charge of Rev.
Grant Cothren. The widow and
Ceven children survive.
