Unfortunate young Tucker Shiplett Dies after Two Weeks of Great Agony
A few days ago, the ADVOCATE published an account of
Mr. Joseph S. Shiplett or "Tuck" Shiplett, as he was
familiarly called by his friends, accidentally shooting himself while out hunting.
It was first hoped that the unfortunate young man might recover, but, from the following which we clip from the Zanesville SIGNAL of Friday, it appeared the sad accident had a fatal ending.
Mr. Shiplett lived just over the Licking county line and he has many relatives and friends
in this county who will be deeply pained to hear of his death: died 13 Dec. 1888
ADVOCATE published: Newark, OH
