Joseph Meriwether, a prominent farmer of Greenville township, who on may 15 cut his throat with a razor with suicidal intent died Sunday morning from the effects of the self-inflicted injury. The funeral took place at the Methodist Episcopal church in Galena, and the burial will be in the Galena cemetery. On account of the condition of the health of Mr. Meriwether, there was no hope of his recovery from the first. He was sixty-five years of age and had lived practically all of his life in Floyd county. Three sons and two daughters, all of whom live in Georgetown and Greenville townships, survive him. They are James, Elmer and Brown Meriwether, Mrs. John Pectol and Mrs. Joseph Sturns.
