Coroner Returns Verdict
In Fatal Shooting Here
----------
          A verdict that  Donnie Ray Myers,  14 years old, of Linton, was killed accidentally Thursday afternoon by a blast from a shotgun in the hands of his brother,  Larry Dean,  12, was returned today by Delmar Hasler, Greene county coroner.  The shooting occurred about 1:30 o'clock Thursday afternoon in a small shed that is located on property owned by  Elvis Walker,  between Fifth street northwest and the Milwaukee railroad tracks, about two blocks north of state road 54.  Investigators included Linton police, State Police Detective Sgt. Joe Feeney and Greene County Sheriff Jack Blakely.  The officers reported that the younger Myers boy first told them that he and his brother had purchased the shotgun that did the final shooting from "an old man in West Linton for $5."
Changes His Story
          Later, however, he changed his story and told the officers that he and his brother had gone to the home of  Bill Beatty,  who lives alone in a small house a few hundred yards away.  He said that he waited outside while his brother entered the Beatty residence and took the shotgun.  He said that he and his brother played with the shotgun and then took it to the shed, which is used as a "play-house" by children of the neighborhood.  Larry Dean said that Donnie Ray laid down on an old wicker settee in the shed and that he was playing with the gun when his "finger slipped on the trigger" and it discharged.  The charge from the gun struck the older boy on the left side of the head, killing him instantly.
          The officers said that the old single-shot 12 gauge shotgun probably had not been fired for several years.  The police said that they had no doubts that Larry Dean was telling the truth, since the position of the boy's body bore out his story.
          Donnie Ray was born at Linton on July 18, 1943, the son of  Norval and Alma Mae Miller Myers.  He attended the Linton-Stockton Elementary school and had been promoted into the Sixth grade at the conclusion of the last term.
He attended the Olive Branch Baptist church.
          He is survived by the parents, Mr. and Mrs. Norval Myers; seven brothers,  Orval G. Myers  of Linton rural route,  Eugene Myers  of Pendleton, and  Earl R.,  Kenneth L.,  Donnie* [sic] Ray  (a twin to the deceased),  Larry D. and  Dannie E. Myers,  all at home; three* step-brothers,  Roy Dyer  of Indianapolis, and  Bobby L. Miller  of Vandalia, Ohio; two sisters,  Mrs. Shirley A. Glascloe [sic--Glascoe]  of Dayton, Ohio and  Mrs. Mary E. Killian  of Vandalia, Ohio, and two grandmothers,  Mrs. Cora A. Myers  and  Mrs. Ada B. Miller,  both of Linton route three.  Two brothers and one sister preceded him in death.
          The boy's body was taken to the Welch and Cornett Funeral home, and was later removed to the home of the brother, Orval Myers, in West Linton, where, it was announced, friends may call.  Funeral services will be held at the Orval Myers residence at 2:00 o'clock Saturday afternoon, with Rev. Donald McClintock officiating, and burial will be made in the Old Linton cemetery.
Betty's notes:
      * This should be Ronnie Ray.  Donnie Ray is the deceased.
      ** Although the article says "three step-brothers" only two were listed.

INFLUENTIAL  MAN  HAS  PASSED  AWAY
----------
Alvin C. Myer Died Late Wednesday Afternoon
at Home in Van Buren Township.
----------
          Alvin C. Myer,  prominent influential farmer of Shelby County and owner of extensive land interests in the community, died at 3:30 o'clock at his home in Van Buren township, five miles south of Morristown.  His illness of kidney trouble and a complication of the disease had covered a period of more than a year and his condition had been critical for the past two months.
          The death of  Mr. Myer removes a native of the county, widely known and highly respected by all his associates.  He was born in Hanover township, March 17, 1851, the son of  Charles  and  Sarah Myer  and he was seventy-five years old at his death.  Throughout his life he had resided in the north part of Shelby county, and he was considered one of the leading agriculturists of that section as well as a leader in farm affairs for the entire community.
          Mr. Myer married  Miss Milretta Thomas, December 14, 1876, the couple observing their golden wedding anniversary this month.  The home life of Mr. Myer was of the high caliber that had always marked his business and civic career.  Two sons that were born are  Herbert C. Myer  and  Sylvester Myer, both surviving with the bereaved widow.  The sympathy of the entire county is extended to the sorrowing family that includes one sister,  Mrs. David Sexton, of Morristown.  He also leaves six grandchildren and four great-grandchildren.
          When a young man, Mr. Myer affiliated with the Disciples of Christ church and he maintained his membership with this church thru his entire life, being a member of the Christian church at Morristown.  His splendid reputation exemplified his high type of character.  He was honest and true in all his dealings and in his death the community has lost a substantial and creditable citizen whose memory will be the best monument that could be erected to his exemplary life.
          Funeral services will be held at the late home at ten o'clock Saturday morning, the Rev. A. Burns, of Greenfield, officiating.  Burial will be in Forest Hill cemetery in charge of L. V. Hauk, funeral director.

DEATH  CALLED  AWAY
FOUR  AGED  WOMEN
----------
Mrs. Elizabeth  Myers  Dead.br> ----------
          Mrs. Elizabeth Myers,  one of the pioneer residents of Jackson township, died at the home of her son,  John,  five miles east of Edinburg, at 5:35 o'clock Saturday evening.  Her death occurred on the old homestead where she has resided for the past sixty-five years.  The farm has been under the management of the son John, since his father's death in 1886.
          Mrs. Myers was more than eighty-one years of age and her long residence in Jackson township gave her a wide acquaintance over the southern part of the county.  She was in remarkably good health for a person of her age until a year ago when she suffered a stroke of paralysis, the effects of which finally cuased her death.  She was for many years a member of the St. George Lutheran church and was an earnest worker in the interests of the church.  She is survived by seven children, two step-children, seventeen grandchildren and twenty-seven great-grandchildren.  The children are John, of Jackson township;  Joseph,  of Columbus;  Andrew,  of Indianapolis;  George,  of Mississippi;  Mrs. Joel D. Scott,  of near Marietta;  Charles,  of St. Louis Crossing, and  David,  of Jackson township.  The step-children are  Daniel Myers,  of Hope, and  Mrs. John Wertz,  of Noblesville.
          The funeral services will be held at the home at ten o'clock Tuesday morning, Rev. Thomas Estell, of Muncie officiating.  Interment in the St. George cemetery.

SUDDEN  DEATH
----------
Monday Night of a Resi-
dent of Marion Township
----------
          Tuesday at 6 o'clock a.m. undertaker  Joseph Cummins  awoke  Coroner Bruce  to notify him that his services were again needed.  Mr. Cummins had just sold a casket to the friends of  Mr. Lewis Meyers, son of  Eli Meyers, of Marion township, who was found dead behind his barn at a late hour Monday evening.  The coroner immediately left for the dead man's residence, which is on the Morristown pike, near the  Cory homestead.  Meyers was past fifty years of age, and has been a sufferer from heart trouble.  Meyers was engaged with his brother-in-law in putting a new tongue to a bob sled at six o'clock Monday evening, and was overcome by heart trouble, dying before the services of a physician could be obtained to minister him.  He was forty-seven years of age and leaves a wife and three children.
