Fred Ray, Despondent Over Marital Troubles, Takes Life in a Saloon

Fred Ray, aged 21, better known as Fred Dennis, committed suicide Saturday (Oct. 6, 1906) by taking carbolic acid. About two years ago Ray married Anna May Weaver, of Georgetown, and the couple moved from Wellsville to Martins Ferry. Their three-months-old baby died three weeks ago, after which Mrs. Ray, it is alleged, fell into the habit of leaving home and remaining away for days at a time.

She left home Monday and Ray instituted a search for her during which he reappeared in Wellsville. Unsuccessful he became despondent and purchasing two ounces of carbolic acid went to the Palace saloon and after mixing ten cents worth of whiskey with the drug entered a closet and swallowed the poison.

Later parties in the saloon heard him moaning and on opening the closet door found him unconscious.

Ray was removed in the police ambulance to the home of his mother, Mrs. Julia Keenan, Second street, where he was attended by Dr. Hutchinson. The doctor was unable to revive him and he died within an hour.

The funeral services will be held at one o'clock this afternoon from the Keenan residence.

Young Man, Crippled by Accident, Shoots Himself Through the Head


Joseph Massey, aged 28, and single, residing with his widowed mother, Mrs. Mary M. Massey, 344 Eighth street, committed suicide yesterday morning (Oct. 4, 1906) by shooting himself through the head.

When about 20 years of age the deceased was injured at West End park by a companion jumping on his back. His spine being permanently injured, his lower limbs became paralyzed. This trouble, with general ill Health, caused fits of melancholy, during one of which the deceased is supposed to have killed himself.

Four hours after the deceased is supposed to have fired the fatal shot his mother entered his room to inquire if she could not prepare something special for him to eat, and found him dead. Mrs. Massey remembered hearing a muffled sound, about the time her son is supposed to have shot himself, but it was so unlike that of a pistol shot that she gave it little thought.

Mrs. Massey summoned a neighbor who in turn telephoned Dr. Aaron Ogden. To satisfy the anxious mother the doctor made an examination and reported that the young man had been dead for some time.

Arrangements had been made to purchase the deceased a wheel chair as a birthday present, that he might get more enjoyment out of life. He was an exceptionally bright young man, and found much enjoyment in reading.

Besides his mother, three brothers, Fletcher, of Huntington, W. Va., Arron and Ambrose at home, survive

The funeral services will be held at 2 p.m. Saturday morning from the house, and interment will be made in Riverview cemetery.
