Dee Drew Applegate, son of George Z. Applegate, accidently met death at his own hands at about 6 p.m. last Tuesday, Dec. 1. He had gone to the pasture with two mules. The pasture was across the Myatt creek from his home and took a gun a long to kill some ducks. People living near heard one shot. They thought nothing about it. His father, brothers and sisters became uneasy about him when bedtime was approaching and he had not returned and they went to search for him. They found him dead. He had been shot on the right side of the face between the nose and eye, the entire load from the gun entering at the same place and coming out at the top of the head, carrying some of his brain into a tree above where he was found. He was yet warm when found. Oscar Mosey, justice of the peace, held an inquest over the body Wednesday, the jury finding to the effect as here stated. No one will ever know how the accident happened, but it is though the mule he was attempting to mount and return home on, jumps and discharged the gun which he was evidently holding by the muzzle, as his right hand below the thumb was badly wounded. He was buried at the Moten grave yard yesterday afternoon, the funeral being conducted by Elders J. H. Moran and N. D. Porter. There was a large gathering present.
Deceased was a good boy, love by all who knew him. He was saved during the winter of 1921 in a meeting at the Pentecost mission in Mammoth Spring and was baptized in September of the following year. He was the youngest child of George Z. Applegate, who owns and reside upon the farm where H. H. Hubbell mysteriously lost his life a few years ago. He is survived by his father, two brothers, Warren and Ernest, and three sisters, Winona and Myrtle Applegate and Mrs. Mae Green. His mother died in 1912 and his twin brother the same year they were born, 1910. His mother was a Spicer.
