Mr. Newkirk Drowned

On Tuesday morning about 8 o'clock J. S. Newkirk, who lived with his son, Elisha Newkirk, was drowned in Garrison creek, near Arbuckle. He was attempting to cross the creek. His son had crossed on a log a few minutes previous and had gone to get a stick to enable his father to cross. While he was gone the old gentleman attempted to cross and was drowned. His body was found a short distance down the creek lodged against some drift.

Mr. Newkirk was about 60 years of age. Besides the son he was living with, he has another son somewhere in the North. His daughter Mrs. Roundtree lives at Midland.

Interment was had in Oak Ridge cemetery yesterday afternoon.
