An old man named James Chestnut (commonly called Grandpa) age 96 years and 10 Months, was drowned in Duck Creek one mile southwest of Buxton, last Saturday, May 20th.
The old gentleman left home in the morning about nine o'clock and went to the creek fishing. He did not return home at the expected time, and searching the creek found him about 4:30 PM. By the appearance of his fishing poles and bait he had evidently selected his place to fish and went to sit down and fell, he being so old and having poor action.
He was laid to rest the following day in the Maple Grove (Bachelder) cemetery. Mr Chestnut has lived a long life and his death is greatly mourned in this vicinity."
Obituary from the Buffalo Advocate, Buffalo, Kansas, June 1, 1893:
"James Chestnut, said to be about 98 years old, and the oldest man in the county, was accidently drowned near Buxton, last week, while fishing. It is supposed the bank gave away with him, from having been undermined by high water.". His body was interred on 21 May 1893 at Fredonia, Wilson Co., Kansas, at Bachelder Cemetery.
