I have a letter dated October 11, 1889 on stationery from the Marion Roller Mills, office of J.B. Kevil and A. U. Lamb. The letter is from my great-great grandfather, Andrew Jackson Fincher to his wife concerning the condition of his son, John.
John's legs had been crushed in an accident and he died on Oct. 15, 1889. I can only guess that the accident happened at the Marion Roller Mills since the letter is on their stationery.
Does anyone know if there was a newspaper in the area at this time? Maybe there was an article about the accident or his death. I've so far not been able to find any death or burial records for John. He was from Robertson County, Tennessee.
I would appreciate any help or information. Contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks!
