Olede Johnson

The Gazette
June 19, 1895

We regret very much to learn of the sad accident that happened to Mr. J. O. Johnson’s little six year old son, Olede, who lives about nine miles South of Farmerville, on Saturday, the 8th (inat). While playing with a pistol the little boy pressed the barrel next to his stomach and in trying to cock the weapon discharged the load and the ball entered his bowels. After suffering great pain the little fellow died the following Sunday.
