Obituary: The Pulaski Citizen Thursday, 14 Jul 1898 "Pisgah" by Theo
Quite a sad death occurred near here Wednesday morning. Mr. Jim Bearden, after eating breakfast, as usual, started to work. On crossing a bridge near the house he was seized with a hard seizure and fell into the water on his face, and although the water was very shallow, he was drowned before any one discovered him.
