Appleyard, Charles B. (26 JUL 1850 - 25 APR 1916)

Chas. B. Appleyard, a well known farmer of North Pine Valley, Clark County, was found dead in his barn Tuesday morning about 9 o’clock. He ate breakfast as usual with his family and went to the barn to do chores, stating that he would be back soon to help with some work at the house. As he did not return, search was made and his body found in the barn. A bottle and cup in which were traces of carbolic acid were found, and by direction of the district attorney an inquest held by Justice Devos and jury, who found that death was due to drinking carbolic acid. Mr. Appleyard had been in usual health though complaining some of rheumatism, and no reason was apparent for the act. He was a man of cheerful disposition and well like by everyone who knew him. The funeral will be held Friday afternoon. Obituary will be given later.
