James Donovan, mail carrier on the route between Oregon and New Point, was called to Rosendale, Andrew county, Friday of last week, by the death of his brother-in-law, Christ Lash; he died Saturday, March 11 [sic], 1899, his death having been caused from an accident a few days previous. He was hauling lumber when his team ran away, throwing him off, the wagon box falling on top of him; at the time and for several days he did not seem to be injured, but in a few days he began to complain of a pain in the back part of his head, and it was only a short time until he died-- spinal meningitis resulting from the injuries.
