FORMER MCINTOSH COUNTY MAN KILLED
Checotah, Oct. 7. Felix Williams, brother of Tom Williams residing west of Checotah, and himself a former resident of this vicinity, was the victim of a dastardly crime last Thursday afternoon. Mr. Williams was busy picking cotton at his home near Bartlett, and while in the act of stooping over was shot in the head from the rear by a man whom he thought was his friend. The murderer tried to escape but was captured Friday and taken to the county jail at Okmulgee.
Mr. Williams was born at Enterprise, Ky., in 1882, being 38 years of age. For a number of years he and his family resided near Checotah moving to a farm near Bartlett a short time ago. About two years ago his wife passed away, since which time he had kept his family of four children together.
Besides the four children he leaves a mother residing at Wichita Falls, Texas, five brothers and two sisters to mourn his untimely end.
The body was brought to this city Friday where the funeral services were held Saturday afternoon in charge of Rev. A. B. Little, former pastor of the Baptist church of this city. The remains were tenderly laid to rest in Green Lawn Cemetery.
