MAY 24, 1934

The body of ARTHUR WALLACE, 52 years old, was found on a little used road
near the Cumberland Church between the rivers early Monday morning by JOHN
POGUE, who had gone out to shoot crows. The man had been dead for about 48
hours when he was found, according to a conclusion by Dr. H.L. WALLACE,
coroner of Trigg County, who viewed the body. There was no sign of violence
about the body and it is thought that he suffered a heart attack. The
coroner's jury arrived at this verdict. he was last seen Saturday morning
when he left his home apparently on his way to Bleidt near his home and is
thought to have taken a short cut across the graveyard at the church and
behind the church where an old road used to go. His people did not become
alarmed at his absence until Sunday as he was in the habit of being away
from home all night. when he did not return Sunday a search was instituted
for him. POGUE who found the body, was not searching for him, but
accidently discovered the body which had started to decompose. MR. WALLACE
was a former teacher in the schools of this county and for many years was a
farmer. He was the father of seven sons and three girls, who survive him.
Two sets of twins are included int he number. His wife also surves as does
hi parents, MR AND MRS JOE WALLACE, one brother, ROY WALLACE and one
sister, MRS. JAP LANEAVE. Burial in the Cumberland Church Graveyard.
