Burke County Obituaries and Death Notices

The Waynesboro Expositor has the following: On Thursday last Mr. Hezekiah Davis, who lives near the Jefferson line, committed suicide by shooting himself, and then drinking a bottle of laudanum. Mr. D. was out working on his farm as usual, and gave no evidence of any unusual excitement or agitation. Leaving the field he proceeded to his house, and entering a room immediately shot him self with a pistol, which not killing him instantly, he drank the laudanum, and died in a few minutes. No cause is assigned for the rash act, and the only answer he gave his wife in response to an inquiry was, "It was not from any cause given by you."
