Obituary: “S. W. Campbell, age 60, who lived on his claim five miles north of Town, accicentially shot his left arm off with a double barrel shot gun, Thursday of last week. Mr. Campbell was passing through a gate and lowered the gun when the hammer struck a slat and went off. Being loaded with No. 4 shot it tore out about two inches of the bone of his arm. Drs. Hatcher, Dawson and Wells called on him Friday evening and amputated his arm, taking it off near his shoulder. Dr. Hatcher says he seemed to be in good shape for recovery when the left him Friday evening. But the shock was too great for the old man and he died next morning at 2 o’clock. His remains were interred in the Texola cemetery last Sunday afternoon. Mr. Campbell’s funeral was preached by James Short, one of his old chums in the late war. It seems that people will never grow old enough to learn to be careful in handling a loaded gun. The old and young fare alike when they handle guns without notice as to where they are pointing.” (S) Newspaper article: Echols, R. C. & Townsend, G. B. The Mangum Star. (Mangum, Okla.
