J. W. Vincent  Added 10/15/06
J. W. Vincent Killed.
J. W. Vincent, one of the pioneer ranchers of the Molson-Chesaw country, was accidentally killed yesterday morning. He and his hired men were engaged in butchering hogs. The hired man was shooting the hogs with a 22-calibre rifle and the gun accidentally discharged while pointing towards Mr. Vincent's head. The bullet entered near one of his eyes and death was instantaneous.
Coroner Victor Grove of Molson was notified at once and he and Deputy Sheriff Ed. Burden went to the Vincent home. Accidental death was so apparent that no inquest was deemed necessary. The body was taken to Molson where the funeral will be held.
Mr. Vincent was one of the old timers of the North Half and one of the most progressive farmers in the county. He had made a specialty of breeding Shorthorn cattle and his herd was known far and wide for its fine stock. He leaves a son and widow to mourn his death. It is understood that the son is now a student in an eastern college.
