The Ouachita Telegraph
October 9, 1886
Mr. A.B. Norman, son of Mr. C.C. Norman, of Ouachita City, was fatally
injured while repairing the gin house of Dr. Potts last Saturday about 6
a.m. by a piece of scantling falling from the wall of the building which
struck him in the side in the region of the stomach.
He was prostrated by the blow, but at the time it was not thought to be a
fatal one. He was carried to another part of the gin house and made as
comfortable as possible, but never rallied. He died about noon.
He was a young man of good habits and will be missed as a citizen. He
leaves a wife and young child to mourn his early death. – Farmerville
