Eli How
Obituary for
Eli How
Submitted by: Robert R. Hawkins

Burlington Independent
January 1, 1892

C. G. How called Wednesday to bring us a sad piece of news. His brother Eli, aged about fifteen years, shot himself through the left shoulder with a load of shot on Wednesday, December 9. The accident occurred while he was out hunting. It appears that he was leaning on the point of his gun tooking through the spy glass, when the gun was discharged. A book which he had in his breast pocket diverted the shot somewhat, or his death would have been instananeous. As it was, he lingered for ten days, dying on Saturday, December 19. He was a very bright, good boy and a special favorite of all members of the family. C. G. How feels the loss very keenly and deeply regrets that he was not informed in time to see him before he died. The accident occurred near his father's place, about nine miles east of Guthrie.
