(Source: Moundsville Daily Echo - 1 July 1952 - furnished by Clarice Stanley)

Note: The obituary says found dead "yesterday morning" - but Court House Record shows 1 July 1952. Did he actually die June 30, 1952? I checked my Computer Calendar for 1952 and July 1, 1952 is Tuesday! We could check Social Security Records. I assume date of the Echo was 1 July 1952, as that is the way Vernon Anderson recorded all the dates of the newspaper, on the back of the pages he copied. 1 July 1952 is the date of the Echo in this instance.
